Re: Need Slant Six Exhaust Manifold




No such thing as a Polara 500 in Canada in 1965-66.   Series were 330 (1965) / Polara (1966), Polara 440, Polara 880 and Monaco.   Standard engine in them all was either a slant six or a 318 V8 as the Canadian Dodge was priced to do battle with the Plymouth Fury, full-size Ford, full-size Chevrolet, Meteor and Canadian Pontiac.  Being a 1965 there should be a small tag on the firewall with Model No, Body No, Trim Code and Paint Code.  As yours is a 1965 2 door with bucket seats, it leads me to believe it is a Monaco.  Will need to Model No and Trim Code to confirm.

If you cannot find the body tag the serial number / VIN will help.  Advise what the SN / VIN is, minus the last 6 digits if you wish, and I can tell you what you have.

There was a red 1966 Canadian Dodge at the Langley show a couple of years ago.  Couldn't track the owner down, but he said it was a Polara 500 although it had Monaco side trim..

American C body Dodges came with a 383 V8 in 1965-67, with the Polara models getting the 318 for 1968.  The U.S. Dodge Polaras (D2-L) did battle with the Pontiac Catalina while the Monaco (D2-H) went up against the Pontiac Executive, Olds 88 and Mercury Park Lane.  (The Canadian sixes were D1, with the 1965-66 V8s D2 and starting in 1967 D3).

For your exhaust manifold, get a 1967 or newer unit.  The 1960-66 exhaust manifolds are noted for cracking.  Starting in 1967 Chrysler used more webbing in the manifold to prevent distortion.
