The Chrysler Dodge division manufactured the Dodge Polara convertibles from 1960 to 1970. Polara convertibles are now considered classics and are being preserved for loving restoration by convertible enthusiasts.
About Our Convertible Tops:
Dodge Polara convertibles all employ classic two part top design. Our tops are made using original patterns taken from dealer Dodge Polara convertibles and stored for accurate computer cutting of top fabrics. State of the art methods and materials are employed in all our convertible tops. More information on Polara convertible tops and our company policies, warranties, etc. can be found at the "help" link at the top of this page.
Two Part Tops: Can I Install Myself?
We offer a profusely illustrated convertible top manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. In particular, the manual applies to these cars which all have a two part convertible top. Owners may purchase the manual to review it before purchasing a convertible top package. We would then pro-rate future purchase of the convertible top when it is ordered.
If you can use an air compressor driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install any of these convertible tops. The convertible top packages include everything needed in most cases. (Convertible top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
Note that there is no sewing involved in installing a two part convertible top. There is stapling and there is manipulation of the top fabric which in places is applied with contact cement. Our convertible top packages include stainless steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush. Please click the link to your convertible top page for more information. The full manual is available and also included with our convertible top package specials.
If you click on one of the links to our Polara convertible tops at the right you will be taken to the year of your own Dodge Polara. There you will find tops, top packages and much information.
We now stock hydraulic cylinders, motor-pumps, and hoses for your convertible tops. All are made to OEM specifications. Each can be ordered separately; however, when ordering hydraulic cylinders we recommend replacing both. The chances are that both hydraulic cylinders were manufactured at the same time: if one is on its way out the other may follow. If the top is raised and one hydraulic cylinder is working harder than the other the result over time can lead to a slightly bent convertible top frame. The replacement of both hydraulic cylinders will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.
Systems for this car take Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and have a 5 year warranty when used with this fluid. Brake fluid should not be used as it voids the warranty. We also offer an installation manual when ordered.
The 12 volt motor-pumps include a mounting bracket with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.
