Dodge’s full-size luxury Custom 880 line was critical to the company because of the loss of the DeSoto brand, which ended with a short production run of 1961 models in late 1960. Dodge sought to retain DeSoto buyers with a comprehensive full-size slate of luxury cars.
ABOUT THIS CAR
All Custom 880 models came with Dodge’s 361-cid V-8 engine, rated at a healthy 265 horsepower. This one was mated to a three-speed TorqueFlite automatic, that was available as an option for US$211. Also additional options on this car include power steering, power brakes.
The “Custom 880” included more trim. Basic 880 cars were available in sedan and wagon form, while Custom 880 models retained the full range of body styles.
A lot of power, a lot of car, a lot of good looks…leaves the smaller cars standing there.
Best described as a tidy example – nice motor runs and drives well.
Very original with lots of patina.
Lovely bench seats – pity there’s some wear on drivers side but it is what it is.
Good tires – nice white walls.
In our opinion, nice solid car – come check it out.
Collectors gravitate towards unusual body styles including the hardtop coupes and convertibles, with special interest in cars ordered with the high-horsepower engines and a full set of options. While the Custom 880 has never been considered a true muscle car, there’s plenty of Mopar muscle in these cars to merit a place in anyone’s collection.
Re-advertised due to time wasters, this is a stalled project.
Imported from California about eight years ago it is original throughout.
It has five brand new tyres and the fuel tank has been refurbished.
Our Polara is a hardtop variant from 1967, its exterior is in a light shiny beige and the contrasting interior in black leather. The current owner bought the car in Sweden. Not least for its pleasant.....
