The 1973 Dodge Monaco and 1973 Dodge Polara came with bodies which for the last time carried on the Fuselage design. The Polara front end was totally restyled and now featured a more conventional look while the Monaco front bumper remained unchanged but was surrounding a grill with a new mesh pattern. It still featured the hidden headlights introduced in 1972. The Monaco had new taillights and a new rear bumper. Federally mandated impact protection standards were responsible for the introduction of the elastomeric bumper guards that can be found on all 1973 Full size cars from Chrysler Corp.
The 318 cui. V8 was the standard powerplant for the Polara while the Monaco came with a 360 cui. V8. The 400 cui. and 440 cui. engines were optional.
Both the Monaco and the Polara were available as sedans, two- and four-door hardtops and as station wagons.
