1960 Dodge Matador 4 door sedan
The Matador was a one year only Dodge offering, settling in as the base model in front of the premier line Polara. They sold roughly 28000 of them by year's end.
These big sedans come armed with the "Super Red Ram" 361 V8 (w/ 2 bbl cab) that push out nearly 300 HP. It moves that power to ground through a three speed, push button, Torque-Flight automatic transmission.
This is a three owner car, starting out in North Carolina, the second owner was also from NC, however, he moved to Ohio and had the car titled there.. But it never went north with him, it stayed in NC. He sold it to the current, third owner here in CT who has been in possession of the car for several months. In that time he buffed out the tired repaint (which appears to be in the original Raven Black), did the brakes, master cylinder and brake lines, installed a new muffler and tail pipe and also replaced the gas tank and fuel lines. After buffing the paint, NH Coatings was applied to the frame and underbody.
She starts and runs great, the dark grey vinyl interior is in very good shape with some regular wear and tear seen throughout but nothing major. This is a radio delete car and has the plate in place.
The rocket age design carries over from the exterior with a "flow through" instrument cluster. Unfortunately, there appears to be an issue with the odometer and the speedometer doesn't currently work. It does come with a new cable that has not been installed. Actual mileage is unknown.
The paint shines nicely however, close inspection will find some small nicks and chips, etc.
The frame and body are in generally very solid condition, however, the trunk (which can sleep 3) has had a patch panel welded in and there is evidence of small rot holes on the right side floor.
Overall, a great, fun car to hop in and enjoy immediately and a VERY good starting point for a full on restoration if that's your passion. You very probably won't see another one at the Friday night cruise and she's sure to start conversations.
Asking price is $9000
