Dodge really got the design right in '66. The vintage machine has a wide 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. These cars were already intimidating before they added the monster motor to this one. Of course, the huge hood scoop instantly lets everyone know this is not your average classic coupe. Finished in a high gloss black, that front end looks like its only mission is to consume lesser cars. But beyond the aggressive looks, there is a great vintage style. You see it in the extra wide chrome bumpers and full length stainless trim – all of these hard to source items are present and complete on this Dodge. These ideas of dark and chrome seem to come together perfectly on the iconic Keystone Klassic wheels.
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 seats, to the door panels, to the headliner - all of which have held up quite nicely for its age. The extra wide dash is pure '60s cool, and it has plenty of room to house all of the gauges with plenty of room left over for the heat/defrost and factory AM radio. It's such an original style presentation that we know you'll get a little tingle as your left hand grabs the factory wheel; you twist the key to awaken the beast; and your right hand cups the cue ball shifter.
Open the hood, and see one of the best motors of the muscle car era. Filling the engine bay is the 426 Hemi V8. This original, numbers-matching powerplant is legendary for providing power and leaving a serious rumble in its wake. The Mopar big block has received plenty of care over the years, and you can see it just in the condition of the belts, wires, and hoses. It inhales deeply through dual four-barrel carburetors and a competition intake. The iconic V8 exhales with authority from the long tub headers that feed the Flowmaster dual exhaust. If the thought of this Coronet Hemi didn't already have your high-octane heart racing, just remember that you have complete control over this Hemi and its thunderous roar thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. Because this all seems too good to be true, we also have the Galen Govier documentation, owner's manual, and factory buildsheet for you to show all the skeptics.
Chrysler made so few cars compared to Ford and GM that most Mopars are as unique as snowflakes. So when you find something as awesome as this Coronet with a 426 Hemi and four-on-the floor, well then, you know this midnight hero will be headed back into the shadows quickly. Call today!!!
