1964 Dodge Polara Twin Turbo Sleeper Build

Famous car and motorcycle builder,  Jesse James‘ 1964 Dodge Polara is one cool build — Jesse and the Roadster Shop joined forces with Honeywell Garrett to produce a twin turbocharged beast for street and strip.

It all begins with a 3D scan using Faro Technologies equipment. This allowed Roadster Shop to build a custom (Fast Track) chassis that is lighter and stronger than the factory unit.

Tremec transmission, Strange Engineering rear differential, Baer brake system, and Forgeline wheels with Nitto 505R rubber help get this heavy Mopar up to speed and bring it safely to a stop.

Under the hood, a Wegner Motorsports built 426 cubic-inch Hemi engine and a pair of Honeywell Garrett GTX3582R turbochargers are making plenty of horsepower. See full build specifications below.

This video takes you step-by-step through the dramitic build of this rusted out Polara. Watch…
