Seems to me, it is more for the newer Malibus.............not my style. Anything after 1970 is not my style..............

Must be a 60 cause the 61 dodge had a push button shifter on the dash. I had a 61 Seneca with a 225 slant 6. Probably the most dependable car I ever owned.

It's a slightly customized 1961 Dodge. The '61 Polara was very similar but had a different tail light setup as did the Dart. The Polara, Phoenix and Dart were all basically different trim options of the same body style. The Lancer which was the "small" car that year had it's name changed I believe in '63 to Dart, the Polara in the early 60's became the Max Wedge platform and the Phoenix faded into history.

It is a 1961 Dodge Polara. I had to pull out my collection of cards with photos and specs to ID it.

DODGE POLARA

The top of the line Polara was Dodge's only full size car in 1961, and it was the only series that came standard with an eight-cylinder engine. Some 14,000 1961 Polaras were built.

Dodge restyled

After the stylistic indulgences that flooded the automobile market in 1959 and 1960, typified by some pretty outlandish tailfins, Dodge, under the aegis of Chrysler style chief Vergil Exner returned to a purer, simpler style for 1961. The Polara was more streamlined than during the previous year, featuring long smoth lines and inversely positioned tailfins. The taillights recessed into chrome bezels, were reminiscent of jet-airplane exhausts.

Many Engine Options

The Polara, built on a 122 in.wheelbase and 212.5 in. overall, was available as a four-door sedan, four-door hardtop sedan, two-door hardtop coupe, two-door convertible and four-door six or nine passenger station wagon. The station wagons were more than 2 in. longer than the other models. The basic engine was a 361 cu. in., 365hp D-500 V8 and the 383 cu. in., 340hp Ram-Inducted D-500. The super Ram-Induction V8, which boasted two carter four-barrel carburetors, put out 375hp.

SPECIFICATIONS

performance: Top speed of 121 mph

Engine Type/Drivetrain: Overhead valve V8

Displacement: 361 cu. in. (6.6 L)

Power Rating: 265 hp

Transmission: 3-speed manual; 3-speed automatic optional

Chassis: Drum brakes, 3,690-4,125 lbs.

Price: $2,966-$3,409 in 1961

Actually I think this one is a Phoenix. Although the Polara, Dart and Phoenix had the same body style in '61 each had a slightly different tail light configuration.
