Cool wagon. FD

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Cool wagon. FD
Ran into Dave at the local Napa. I said I had a 65 Polara. He said he had a 65 polara. I said, “mine is red, 2 door�. He said he has a red wagon, former Fire department vehicle. We decided to meet up and take some pictures. He also has a 65 Fury. Hopefully we’ll see him around the forums sometime.

Horn stuck on, some dash lights out too

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Horn stuck on, some dash lights out too
Horn won’t quit blowing. This is the opposite problem most encounter when dealing with horn issues. I have confirmed that the wire running up the column is indeed grounded to the column without engaging the horn switch but nothing obvious is pinching the wire running up the steering column. The horn wasn’t engaging in the past before I had lowered and ‘rested’ the column on the drivers seat while I worked on the steering box, but I was careful when handling it. I’m guessing that I still...

Good year Power Streak II

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Good year Power Streak II
Are these old wheel/tires worth putting on the shelf and keeping? I’m getting ready to get new wheels and tires and one option would be to just put new rubber on these 14s. I figured there may be some collector value as these seem to pop up for sale occasionally. Anyhow I have 5 of these H78-14 with the spare and just figured I’d be getting 5 new wheels/tires in a 15 to 17 inch size for regular use. Do folks actually drive on these old tires just for shows?

65 Polara Thread

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 65 Polara Thread
I figured I’d create a thread here as I’m getting the car road worthy again. It hasn’t been driven since the early nineties. Next up is the rear end. I pulled the rear axle seals out today. The drivers side is looking pretty decent but the passenger side has some grooves you can see and feel . Anything I should be worried about? I can’t push the new seal in further than the groves as it was pretty far back already. The bearing looks good but I’m leaning towards putting some new...

Locked keys in the trunk

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Locked keys in the trunk
After searching everywhere for my keys I narrowed the location to the trunk of the polara. Luckily my son was able to squeeze in after removing the rear seat and recover them. Thought I would share some pics of the View attachment 386478 View attachment 386479 View attachment 386480 View attachment 386481 View attachment 386482 adventure and some items I found in the trunk and seats. Getting past the spare tire was a bit challenging. Hope I don’t do that again.

Oil pump prime failure

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Oil pump prime failure
I decided to prime the oil pump tonight since I'm getting ready to fire the engine up for the first time since I've had the car. Engine is a 426 SW in my 65 polara. I began spinning the oil pump counterclockwise and felt nothing for more than a minute. I understand that I should be able to tell when the oil is moving through the engine so I continue to spin the drill a little faster waiting for the jolt indicating that the oil is moving. Well I finally feel the jolt and keep spinning for...
