SUPER CLEAN CORONET, PERIOD BIG BLOCK 440, AWESOME COLOR COMBO, GREAT STANCE!
Classic muscle car confidence, modern performance flair, and the overall rarity that comes from a Mopar ragtop – this 1968 Dodge Coronet convertible is everything you want in a distinguished American classic, right down to the Magnum 440 V8.
Dodge really got the look right in '68. The B-bodies were redesigned to enhance the wide stance that can make this intermediate look full-sized, and in the process gives this convertible a dominating presence. The well-creased sheetmetal on the pristine white body and the exceptionally smooth material on the black folding roof give this the sensibilities of a brute in a finely tailored suit. The shining wide chrome bumper looks like the 10,000-watt smile of a man who knows he can beat up every last person in the joint, but he'd rather just enjoy his beverage... for now (standout red on the R/T badging is a subtle reminder that this on can still draw blood on the streets!) Even a well-dressed man can use some jewelry, and you see that in items like the dual Ramcharger hood scoops up front, the Bumblebee stripe in the rear, and of course no one can resist the large Ridler wheels staggered at 18/20-inches front/rear for an aggressive stance.
The upscale black bucket seat interior looks as fresh as the day this convertible left the St. Louis factory in 1968. So you know there was some serious investment in keeping it this well preserved. The black vinyl's darkness is broken up by plenty of brightwork on places like the door panels, three-spoke steering wheel, and cool center console with the highly stylized gearshift. This is a comfortable place to spend some time with great factory features like the full gauge dash readout and power folding roof. Plus, there are some well placed upgrades like the modern AM/FM/CD changer tucked under the passenger seat.
Open the hood, and the bright orange V8 radiates from the clean white engine bay. The 440 Magnum V8 is one of the best powerhouses of its day, and this is further enhanced by a Holley-four barrel carburetor and long-tube headers. Combine that last feature with the H-pipe dual exhaust, and you've got an unmistakably mean sounding machine from the moment the big V8 fires up. But more than just providing some of the best muscle car power for the streets, the Magnum was known to be one of the easiest to live with, too. This is backed up by great driving features such as the Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. Finish it off with the grip of low profile performance tires, and this R/T Tribute is truly ready for the road or the track.
Mopars are always interesting just simply because there were far fewer of them produced than their Ford and Chevy counterparts. So when you can find one that looks great, has all the right features, and is powered by one of best big blocks around, then you don't want to miss your chance at being a true standout. Call today!!!
