The Dodge 330 was a Full Size automobile sold by the Dodge division of the Chrysler Corporation in 1962, 1963, and 1964, based on the B-body.[1] The coupe often used a 6-cylinder engine. The car was available as a 2dr Sedan or 4dr Sedan.[2] Base motor was the 225 Slant-Six. The 318 2bbl, 361 2bbl, 383 2bbl, 383 4bbl, and 426 4bbl were optional. As an intermediate trim level above the Dart, it came standard with a cigarette lighter, front foam cushions, and rear arm rests.[3] The car rode a 119" wheelbase and was 208.1 inches long[4] along with the higher trimmed 440 and Polara.[5] In 1965, full sized Dodge's got bigger on the new C Body with 121 in (3,073 mm) wheelbase, and the 330 and 440 were both replaced by the new, bigger Polara. The 880 now took the Polara's former place in the lineup.

The Dodge 330 Max Wedge was a 330 2 door sedan powered by the 426 Max Wedge with dual 4 Barrel Carburetors and 425 hp (317 kW). It was available in both years, mostly ordered as a super stocker for the race tracks. Civilian versions are rare today.
