273 V8, AUTO, PS, PB/W FRNT DISC, CERTI-CARD, SUPER CLEAN, AFFORDABLE RARE MOPAR
There's just something about a classic Mopar that makes you pay attention. You know there were fewer of these made compared to the Fords or Chevys back in the 60s. So when you see something as nice as this 1966 Dodge Coronet 440 convertible, you just have to wonder if it's as attractive as it's first impression. Short answer: absolutely.
The beautiful sheetmetal has reportedly only been repainted once, suggesting that this car has led a pretty clean life. That's the original color, because after all, who doesn't like their convertible in Bright Red with a new black top. Dodge really got the design right in '66. This classic has a wide blocky stance that can make this intermediate look full-sized. There's plenty of style touches like the creases along the side that flare out on the quarters, and that cool taffy-pulled rear end that couldn't space out D-O-D-G-E any wider if it tried. The chrome and stainless trim package is original and shines remarkably for being nearly 50 years old. Those are even the original hubcaps... pretty cool, right?
The best interior for a nice red cruiser is black, of course. The design proves once again that the Chrysler stylists were at the top of their game in the '60s, and even the base bench seat got detailing on the backrests that makes it look far more upscale than its price tag would suggest. This Mopar seems to carry most of its original components from the door panels to the carpets - all of which have held up quite nicely for its age. The interior chrome bits are complete and showing just a bit of patina. There's a dashboard full of real gauges, not idiot lights, and a slender steering wheel that allows you to guide the car with little more than your fingertips. This one even has the luxury of operating the power folding roof with one touch of a button. You might notice the factory radio is missing. That's because there has been a new Sony AM/FM/CD stereo w/remote was installed in the glove box to give you more modern tunes without ruining the original authenticity of the dash.
Open the hood and see a 273 cubic inch V8 that shows all signs of being the same one that came from the factory. You can easily tell from the condition of the engine bay and all of the new components that this Coronet has been cared for to ensure that it will remain a faithful cruiser. Backing up this all-day enjoyment attitude is the effortless combination is the Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. This one even has a 3.23 rear end ratio to make sure you can run on the highway without breaking a sweat. But just because this is a nice car doesn't eliminate a bit of a wild side. The upgraded dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers lets the world hear a hint of what V8 Mopar power is all about.
