1967 Dodge Polara 2 door (R&R offering)

This is the 67 Dodge Polara that I started a few months back I still need some underhood things, just need to search various parts boxes and she'll be done! Anyway, I picked up the R&R kit from STAR Models and also got some period correct tires and used the Promo wheels from a 67 Sport Fury via Modelhaus.

That looks amazing. I have one too, and I don't know how you got from the initial product to your finished one.  Especially the taillights.  I've got a few kits set aside for parts to clean it up some.  What did you use for the motor?

The engine is a resin pop I made from the AMT 71 Charger.

That is really sharp, "Doc"! Hard to believe it's an R&R Vacuumcraft kit. Did it start out as a blob of plastic...as many of his resin kits are? If so, you truly are a doctor that can produce miracles! Be sure to share more of this when you get the drivetrain completed. Tongue Fury3

I'm sure it will look great Mike, but remember.....the 1965-1968 Plymouth Fury 4-Door Sedans utilized a unique roof and C-Pillar design that was not shared with the Dodge Polara/Monaco or Chrysler 4-Door Sedans. Knowing you though, you will successfully make the necessary modifications. Tongue Fury3

Ah yes, this one brings back memories! When I was in my early teens, the neighbor across the street had one just like this, same color and all! It also reminds me of his daughter who was close to my age ...Wink

 That looks fantastic big guy. Great colour, very authentic. You've inspired me to look at mine....although yours would look great on my shelf next to my 68 300 of a similar colour...* Hint hint HINT ...COUGH!! *

that is a great looking 67 polara .!!! i always liked that particular body style in dark metallic blue . that is what color my new yorker of the same vintage was . i often thought that chrysler products from that time were pushing the design envelope . and my gosh, were those cars large!             oldcarguy

Doc, awesome build... man it looks good. I'm starting to think the resin offerings are the way to go as there's not alot of variety out there. I really like the color combo on the Polara (I'm a huge fan of a white interior).

Again, great looking car.....
