The Dodge Matador was a Dodge brand car model that was introduced in the United States only for the model year 1960.
For the first time, all Chrysler Group vehicles used a monocoque body in 1960. The Matador and other important 1960s Dodge cars were styled after the 1959 models, which were an evolution of Virgil Exner's 1957 " Forward Look ". The Matador and Polara featured the same chassis as their predecessors, with a 3.099 mm wheelbase, as opposed to the still-large Dart, which had a 2.997 mm wheelbase. The Polara was available in a hardtop coupe, four-door hardtop sedan, five-door hardtop estate with six or nine seats, and a traditional four-door sedan (with B-pillars).
Like these cars, both of the big Dodge model lines of 1960 still had the brand's hallmarks, the "Jet" rear lights, which, however, had grown significantly over the previous year's models; the lower taillight was in the rear bumper. Also seen again were the typical for Dodge shortened tail fins, which had small vertical taillights, which sat on the vertical back of the fin; Again, the shortened tail fins should emphasize the nozzle shape of the taillights. (The tail fins of the Dart series were longer.) In the front, the cars had a small grille, which consisted of eight chrome rectangles, which were embedded in a bulky and complex front bumper.
In 1961 Dodge matador production ended, making the Polara the only big Dodge model from the time.
