Car and motorcycle builder Jesse James unveiled his latest -- a one-off, twin-turbocharged 1964 Dodge Polara.
Honeywell Garrett along with custom car builder Roadster Shop made the big reveal at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, NV.
Here are the details: Jesse’s Polara is powered by a 426ci Wegner Motorsports-built Hemi, with a custom intake manifold and titanium turbo manifold, connected to twin Honeywell Garrett GTX3582R turbochargers. Cooling is handled by an air-to-water intercooler and a radiator built by Ron Davis. To put the power to the ground, the Mopar utilizes a Tremec T-56 transmission modified by Blower Transmission, coupled with a Driveshaft Shop driveshaft and a Strange Engineering rear end.
One of the
standout upgrades on the completely stripped interior is the set of bespoke
fiberglass seats mounted to custom bead-rolled floors, matched perfectly to
gauges by Classic Instruments.
On the outside, the 19” wheels provided by Forgeline are wrapped with Nitto NT505R tires, backed by 14” Baer brakes to offer plenty of stopping power for the big sedan. Bringing the entire build together is Roadster Shop’s signature Fast Track chassis with Penske coilovers and splined rear sway bars, giving the car completely modern handling characteristics.
