1966 Dodge Polara

As I got married, and just before

we moved into our Buena Park

home, I had needed a car for my

wife to drive. I picked up this

car from my older brother.

The car had been ordered new

as a potential police car. That

means oversize drums and brakes,

the 440 commander engine, extra

large battery, 383 rear end, and

a whole bunch of other goodies.

After a couple of years, I rebuilt

the engine and we gave the car

to my wife’s younger brother, who

immediately lowered it, hung the

fuzzy dice from the mirror, & put

bobble head in the rear window.

Quick story–he decided to clean

the radiator one day and figured

drano would do the job. He called

me after doing this and asked me

if it was normal that water

squirted out in many places in the

front of the radiator.
