This white on tan Dodge Polara wagon is a unique find, a daily driver of the late ‘60s with the miles and careful ownership of a rare collectable. It is in excellent condition with original paint, interior, engine and transmission. The only modern upgrades are modern tires, an updated Pioneer tape deck/speakers, and conversion of the A/C system to R134 refrigerant.
It sold new for $4105.35 at Huntsville Dodge in Alabama on April 24, 1969 to an Air Force serviceman who drove the car to and from the base, accumulating 45,728 miles in 29 years of ownership. It was then sold to a loving owner in Ohio where it became popular transportation to and from school and sporting events in nice weather. It was during this time that it became known as the “Brady Bunch Wagon” by the family. Their children’s classmates and friends were always excited to take a ride in the Polara. While under their care, the Dodge covered 20,000 miles.
The Polara then passed to a friend after the second owner reluctantly sold it due to not enough room for their beloved wagon. After only a year, it finally found residence in Michigan. The present owner/collector is yet another caring individual who only brings the wagon out for limited exercise on nice days. Since the second owner sold the car, it has only covered 4,000 of the 69,404 original miles on the odometer.
All records exist for this car as well as the original owner’s manual, service book, and bill-of-sale from Huntsville Dodge, Inc. It is in very good, original condition and would make a great addition to any Mopar or wagon collection.
