    I acquired a 71 Dodge Polara Custom 2dr from a friend. Planning on making it a tribute to the 71 2dr my Father drove when I was little. 360-2 for now. Will be building a 383 for it in the future, but for now just going to enjoy it and change the interior over to black with all the parts I collected for the Polara Brougham project.

    Thank you for posting about DL23K1D143266. I’m an « all original » guy usually, but in this case I get what you want to do. Another one that’ll stay on the road. The 360 is a great engine, enjoy!

    Nice project. Looks like lower rear quarter patches and you are good to go. You may also find the 360 grows on you. :thumbsup:

    Yes that is prior to his ownership.

    Somewhere there is a picture of it, I'd have to really dig for it.

    Well, if the blue car has to be sold to fund the project I'm sure folks would understand why you sold it.

    To me.

    Best part is I have a car with the blacked out tail panel. I will swap them around in time.
