There's a car you don't see too often! 60 Polara hardtop 9 passenger wagon. $850 is a good price. Even the roof rack and 9 passenger stuff would bring that. PolaraPaul needs a pew pieces of trim for his 60.

Here's an old picture of mine. I promise to post updated shots soon!

Chad, let me know if you pass on this, I'd be interested. Also, what model '61 Plymouth is that behind it?

Great find! Not something you see everyday!

Chad, do you think the seller would give you a "two for"?...maybe $1500-$2000 for both the wagon and the Plymouth seen in the photo?

That wagon could be soooo sweet for someone who is a talented restorer (unlike myself ). It would be great to see it on the road again, if possible.

I love those hardtop wagons,especially the Chrysler version,I always wondered why they didn't think of that idea before.Could you imagine a 1957-58 Plymouth hardtop wagon?

Nice find, Chad!!
I cannot ever recall seeing the hardtop wagons in this area, although I've had a few Matador pillared wagons from '60 here.

What is the production figure on those?

So is the Dodge for sale or you buying it. How ratty is it. When I lived in Loganville there was a yard not far from my house on HWY20 that had a LOTS of cars in the 40's 50's and 60's At that time the finned cars had no interest so looking for them was not important then. Wasn't til I moved back to OH that my dad got me into them. I have always loved wagons and convertibles. If you pass on it let me know, unless the fella above wants it

All wagons are worth saving even if its just for parts. You never know what comes up later in life to save even more wagons. Great find!!!

This car is pretty much the Burrito Grande of FL wagons. I would vote to save it,
even if at a high price. Too few were made, fewer survive in any condition. Last time
I checked, they weren't making any more.

Judging by the pull handles on the rear and the step pads on the bumper, I'd say she's a 9 passenger.

I do not know about that, my 60 plymouth wagon has those same handles and its a 6 passenger car.

As for restoring it, if its not wasted real bad underneath I would say do it. That car would look great back that same color.

I have never seen such a response on such a run down car. Clearly there is a lot of love for this car. It deserves to be saved. If you do not save it, please let others here know how to contact the seller. This car is so rare, it makes the forwardlook era letter cars seem as common as a 2010 Camry.

Someday, it could look like this: (I dug thru my large photo archive, but these are so rare, that I had no '60 4drHT wagon photos!)

Have to say while I love my 57 2 door dodge sedan I could totally see having one of these. I'm normally not a wagon guy but wow, sweet find and definitely not a parts car if there's anything left of the undercarriage.

The 1960 Polara wagons were never offered from with the lower rear stainless steel "washboard" trim even though the brochure shows it. It was an installation issue on the wagons. Aaron Kahlenberg is restoring his and adding this trim set to it. Awesome car.

It's definitely worth saving. Here is a picture of mine. I have 2 solid weeks of work ahead of me -- the plan is to get it running sooner than later. I had to take almost a year off due to some employment issues. I have done a few things. The fuel tank is out getting sealed and the roof rack and grab handles are permamnently installed.
