1964 Dodge Polara Rat Rod Sleeper Project - Insane Custom Build for Jesse James
Jesse James, the owner of this 1964 Dodge Polara has partnered on this build with Honeywell Garret, a global leader in performance turbochargers, as well as Roadster Shop to build this unassuming sleeper.
With Honeywell’s backing, this Polara will have a couple tricks hidden under its weathered exterior – and by tricks we mean turbos – the plan is to equip this old B-body with a twin-turbo, Hemi, which should perform quite well when combined with the custom Fast Track chassis. Additional details include a custom set of Forgeline monoblock wheels wrapped in Nitto NT05R tires as well as a restored, simplistic interior.
The build on this old Mopar was a little more involved than a simple-bolt on job due to the Polara's unibody structure, so Roadster shop went to work scanning the entire vehicle with their Faro Technologies3D Scanner giving them the ability to design every single part of the chassis on the computer and thus ensure that it would be dead-nuts accurate. After designing and building the chassis they went to work cutting out all of the car's floor pans and substructure to make room for the new chassis as well as a custom-made floor which were then married together to create what they had in the renderings.
This one-of-a-kind 1964 Dodge Polara was unveiled at SEMA 2017 in the Honeywell Garrett booth.
