1967 Dodge Polara Review

67 Dodge Owner — A bit underpowered with a tinsy little 2bbl rochester and very small brakes for the size of the car but still have no problem locking it up. Pretty solid cars with thick iron sheets.... It's a kick ass car to drive or even sit in... It swallows you

Pros: It turns heads and sounds nice

Cons: The tree hggers are screwing me on the gas

Very Pleased Former Owner — I owned this car in the mid-70s. Had dual exhaust installed and replaced the weak 2 barrel carb with a 780 Holley 4 barrel as well as a few other tweaks like flex fan, better distributor weights and springs, and performance air cleaner. Performance wise, first gear would take you to 70 MPH, 2nd to 110, and 3rd was off the speedo but I estimate about 140 to 145 as the needle pointed straight down toward the floor. I took it to a drag strip in South Carolina (I was in the Army and stationed at Fort Gordon, GA) and did 14.6 at 95 MPH in the 1/4 mile. It was a lot of fun beating so-called performance cars with this sedate looking sleeper. The car was very comfortable on long trips. I would do the 900 mile trip from Fort Gordon back home to Detroit in about 14 hours. The gas mileage of 15 MPG at around 80 MPH on the highway was not bad for a car weighing about 4,000 pounds. The 2.76 rear gear helped with that. Interior space was exceptional. Back then full size really meant something. The trunk was cavernous and the back seat sat 3 adults with elbow room to spare. Ride comfort was very good but handling was kind of floaty. Sway bars would benefit this car tremendously. Worst thing about this car was the 4 wheel drum brakes. With 5 or 6 people in the car it felt like it took a half-mile or more to slow down from 70 to 0. If I had another one I would definitely invest in disc brakes, at least for the front. All in all, I really enjoyed owning my Polara. Forty years and dozens of cars later, it is still one of my favorites.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Extremely comfortable fullsize car
Powerful engine once 2bbl was replaced
Averaged 15 MPG at 80 MPH on highway

Cons: Brakes were pitiful and scary
Canadian built auto trans parts hard to find
