I have not seen this Polara 2dr posted, though it's been up on FB for 13 weeks. It is a Polara Custom, as per the text of the ad and confirmed by the rear quarter scripts, the bright exterior trim, and the seat fabric's vertical pattern.

Colors? The paint is GY4 Gold (Dodge name, aka Honeydew at P/C/Y). The vinyl top is V1X black. The interior is L1Y5 (gold cloth & vinyl bench). From the ad:

"All original pulled out of storage since 2010. Original 318 V8. Runs and drives. It’s not perfect but you’ll have a hard time finding another 2 door Custom. The tires hold air for awhile but are old. I do have all four hubcaps. More photos on request."

It looks pretty crusty but the lower quarters seem in better shape than I'd expect given the shape of the sills. $4.6k ask, claimed 58k miles.

It’s kinda crusty, but still pretty attractive. Nice nobody decided it was a poor man’s Charger or Challenger and bastardized it in that way. Overall it could be a decent driver if there are no atrocities below. Forgiving color for touch ups and blending, so one could fab up some patches and spot repair.

Looks like it was driven on rural roads with loose stones, hence all the knick rust. And the perforations look like the first go round and not bubbling with Bondo. Bummer about the fender, but not the worst. Bet someone was mad about their mailbox getting smashed up.

Light years better than the “Hot Rod Dodge” I looked at a few years ago. Pretty sure that one is still sitting in the same spot.


Wait and beat ‘em down to $2000-2500 and it’s probably a fair buy.
 
Thank you @SPS. I was interested in the car, and contacted the original seller. I have enough on my hands, though, so in the end decided to pass. Here are some photos that he'd sent to me, for records. I hope that this Polara goes to a good home.

More. BTW, the fender tag pic that you uploaded is the exact same one that I got from the original seller.

I like the color but it’s a little bit too crispy
And the price now is IMO too high
 
Love the flathead screws holding the trim on, that's a bonus worthy of the price increase...
