Boyd Coddington Built Polara "Max Hemi" 472 Dual Quad HEMI V8 525 HP Automatic ///
The product of a dream, celebrity and intense focus, this incredible Dodge is known to the hot rod world as Max Hemi. You might recall seeing the car constructed about 10 years ago on the show American Hot Rod. If you don't, well, here's a small summary of its big significance. Max Cohen, a teenager battling acute lymphocytic leukemia, had always dreamed of designing hot rods. So, Make-A-Wish contacted the newly established Boyd Coddington Foundation to see if they could make that happen. It wasn't long until Max and his family were on their way to meet Boyd and the team of TLC's American Hot Rod. And Max, wanting to build something unique, chose this 1963 Polara as the foundation for his project. Despite the commotion involved in coordinating and televising an entire restoration, Max was also invited to turn a few wrenches. And, after the car debuted to much fanfare, this aptly named coupe crossed the Barrett-Jackson block on its way to raising $550K for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Toss the hood and you'll find 472 cubic inches of Hemi big block that, according to Coddington's hot rod shop, moves to the tune of 525 horsepower and 540 lb./ft. of tire-melting torque! That powerful engine sends thrust to a proven A727 TorqueFlite 3-speed, which spins a tough Currie axle. That awesome drivetrain pushes a ladder bar rear-clip, supplied by MagnumForce Race Car Fabrication. Speaking of MagnumForce, they also supplied this Dodge's tubular front-clip. That clip is guided by manual rack-and-pinion steering. Big Baer calipers squeeze a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. And torque meets the pavement through staggered Boyd blades, which spin 225/45R17 Goodyear Eagle GS-Ds in front of 295/40R20 Goodyear Eagle GS-Ds. Whether you're a Dodge fan, a MoPar fan or just a fan of stealth classics that carry a big stick, you simply can't ignore this sinister Polara.
