I just realized I don't have any pictures of Polaraco on here.  I also realized, I haven't taken any yet!  *Makes note: Take time off from work and bring the car and camera to a nice place*  It would help if it was COMPLETELY DONE!  (Ahem *Drops subtle hint*)
 
Anyway. . .here's the list of things left to be done.
 
Cosmetic
Sun Visor Clips installed
Front Seat Trims
Chrome Arm rest backs installed
Carpet and trim Trunk
 
Body
Take car back to body shop to repair 3 rust spots blossoming LR 1/4
Repaint header. .  (My Fault)
 
Mechanical
Replace Front Sway bar bushings with better ones.  If that fails, put old sway bar back in.
Send car out to have the drive shaft angle checked for trueness horizonatally.  I just don't have the facilities to see it.  (Scheduled for Monday)
Replace RF rim which is bent.  (In Progress)
Replace window channel (Next weekend hopefully)
Improve LF defroster air flow  (Next weekend hopefully)
 
Future/optional
Work on more power out of the 5.2 or stroke a 5.2 block
 
Drive the damned thing
 
So far, in the last month  I have
 
Finally rewired the area where the two different harnesses meet and installed rear battery.
Replaced the rear carrier
Replaced the 4 Shocks
Installed a new radio with Serius Sat Radio (My wife wanted it)
Rebalanced front tires
adjusted drive shaft pitch and replaced broken trans mount
Adjust T Bar height
Oh there's probably more. . .
 
I'll get pics for you later in the week.

How about posting a bigger picture of Susan with the wheel covers on. 
 
Leaburn and I both agree they make the car.  In my eyes, it totally changed the appearence and made it look MUCH better.

I know it was in Plymouth. . .I had one.  I was talking about the CHRYSLER line up.  I know it was not available until 73 in the Newport.  The rest were 383's.
 
I'm asking about the Polara in 71.  Was it available in Dodge then?  I know it was in 72.  Have 2 of those

If you are using the trusty book i have. . it's wrong.  The 360 wasn't offered until 1973 in the Newport.  It also had electronic ignition standard then.
 
I know this from another source, dead now, and first hand experience. . .  Special circumstances make me remember this particular topic.

OK, let me see how you did:
 
Chrysler's 350 is a trivia question I like to toss out at people.  (Did they make one?)  I do the same with these questions:  [color=#00ff00 size=3]YES  Forgot the year  late 50's[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]This was mentioned earlier - 1958, Plymouth only.[/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=3]I thought I read that, but ignored it[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
Did Chevy ever build a 302?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]Yes  Camaro[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]Bingo!  Which year(s)?[/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=3]I'm not a Chevy Guy.  But it seems to me it was 68 or 69[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
What's the difference between a Chevy 400 and a Chevy 400?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]2 bolt or 4 bolt?  Big or small block?  Need to specify that. . all of the above[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]I was thinking small vs. big block, but the last comment is also correct![/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=4]Gee thanks[/color]
[color=#00ff00 size=3][/color] 
If Chrysler's 350 and Chevy's 348 are both big blocks, how come a Pontiac 455 and an AMC 401 are not?  [color=#00ff33 size=3]Not sure, But I would think space problems in AMC Bodies[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]No!  Here's a common misunderstanding.  Unlike Mopar, Chevy, or Ford, Pontiac (and others) and AMC only had one block that was bored and stroked to different sizes.  Since Mopar had the LA and B/RB motors, and nothing could be interchanged between the two, one was considered "big" and the other "small."  It had/has nothing to do with cubes.  The AMC 390 and 401 blocks had a raised deck that the 290, 304, 343, and 360 blocks did not have, but they were not "bog blocks" as so many people errornously call them.  AMC did have another series of motors that were introduced in '55, the largest of which was a 327, but those motors were discontinued once the new motors were introduced.[/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=3]I still don't consider AMC as part of Chrysler.  Never paid attention to AMC as a result[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
Which Chrysler motor had the largest pistons?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]MMMMM It's not a 440 or 426[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]It's the 400.[/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=3]Learn something new every day.  I only know how to build them and fix them  To me, as you would say Scott, "WHO CARES!"  Just gimme 8 of 'em and let me get this job done  [/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
WHy does a Ford 427 have more horsepower than a Ford 428? 
[color=#ff0000 size=3]No guess?[/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=4]Does Foamy win a cookie?[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
WHy won't headers for a Chevy 350 fit on a Pontiac 350?  [color=#00ff00 size=3]Two completely different engines[/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3]Bingo again![/color]
[color=#ff0000 size=3][/color] 
Why is a Chrysler 318 physically larger than a Chevy 350?  318 Has deeper skirts to support the main caps Same question for a Chrysler 350 and an AMC 401?
[color=#ff0000 size=3]Actually, it has everthing to do with math.  Your answer is probably perfectly acceptable, but a cylinder's volume has nothing to do with how physically large a motor is.[/color]
[color=#ffff00 size=4]I agree with that and thought about it when replying.  Wasn't sure what you were after.  It's all in what the manufacturer desired in the design, weight needed, a bunch of factors.  They get 572 out of a 360 now. . .[/color]

Absolutely right, Moe.  But another fact - it was available in Plymouth only!

It's also called an inverted flair.

To make an inverted flair it's a two step process.  Pretty easy to do, aftre you've done a few.

When you come up, I'll let you do one.  We're going to do that soon anyway. . .


BTW  Measure the Diameter of that fan for Hurst 1
