About “64 dodge”

Having miscalculated the level of appeal for its smaller and unconventionally styled 1962 Darts and Polaras, Dodge had to scramble to come up with something to keep traditional customers -- and nervous dealers -- happy. That led to the speedy creation of the 1962-1964 Dodge 880.

Created practically out of thin air in that short a time (3 months), the 1962-1964 Dodge 880 reached an increasing number of Mopar loyalists during its brief three-year life span. In 1964 only 7500 four door dodge 880’s were produced. Also in 1964 the front grill of the car got a facelift and the rear end was redesigned.

I am the 4th owner of this car. It has 60,000 original miles on it. I found this car on craigslist In april of 2010. The car had been sitting in a barn since 2006 and hadn't been driven. The car definitely needed some TLC but she appeared to be unmolested. I decided to hand over the money for her, and put it on a trailer and took her home.

I found an envelope in the glove box that has most of the original paperwork that came with the car, including the original bill of sale. The car was purchased new in Illinois in June of 1964 and sold for $2800.

I intend on leaving this car mostly stock. I had dual exhaust installed, I plan on putting on a set of wheels and tires, and I’m doing away with the original 2 barrel stock carburetor and upgrade to an edelbrock 600 cfm 4bbl.
