Overly Optioned: 1967 Dodge Polara Convertible – NOW $26,500
July 21, 2021 Update – After a one-month hiatus following the expiration of their original listing, the seller just posted a fresh Craigslist ad for this very well-optioned Dodge Polara. In the new ad, the seller lowered the asking price by three large to land at $26,500 currently.
June 22, 2021 Update – We just confirmed the listing for this Dodge Polara “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” unless we come across a new listing.
Throughout the 1960s, if you preferred a lot of options on your new American-made car, it was often more cost-effective to buy a vehicle from a company’s more luxurious brands than to tart up a low-price version. A prime example is this highly optioned 1967 Dodge Polara 500 convertible currently listed here on Craigslist in South Hackensack, New Jersey. Equipped with the desirable 440 V8, factory air conditioning, and many more luxury options, we wonder why the original owner simply didn’t step up to a Chrysler Newport instead. Regardless of that reason, this appears to be a very nicely restored example now offered at $26,500 (down from $29,500 originally). Comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their Polara priced three thousand less than this guide’s #2 “Excellent” estimate of $29,500. Similarly, the Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the seller’s ask is right in line with this guide’s #1 “Excellent” appraisal of $30,191 after factoring in a 33% premium for factory air conditioning, power windows, and the 440 cubic inch V8. While the two-tone reupholstered interior likely doesn’t match what this car came with originally, we love the look as it just goes properly with the red exterior on this Land Yacht.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“This is a restored beauty, that looks and runs like new! Powered by a 440 cubic inch V/8 engine, 727 automatic transmission, and 273 Posi rear. The car has cold air conditioning, tilt steering, cruise control, power windows, power driver seat, power steering, power disk brakes, power trunk release, power top and amfm/cd and everything works! Great looks and a fabulous driving car, ready to enjoy.
Everything has been rebuilt, or refurbished within the last ten years. This car needs nothing.“
