EARLY MOPAR MUSCLE, STREET WEDGE 426, 727 TORQUEFLITE, STRAIGHT, NICE SURVIVOR!!
Sure, you can love this 1965 Dodge Coronet hardtop because it's highly original right down to the paint and the AM radio. But really it's the thundering Street Wedge 426 V8 under the hood that makes this classic coupe such an irresistible buy.
The bright red paint looks quite nice, but when you find out it's original to the car, your jaw will hit the floor. Sure there are some signs of usage and repair, but we would all hope to look this good over half a century later. The bright color also does a great job of highlighting Chrysler's famous cantilever styling. The bumpers shine so bright they appear new, and the rest of the brightwork is present and looking nice. The full package makes people take notice of the extra-wide front end, angular hardtop, and trim that runs the full length of this coupe. It's a time capsule of a presentation that feels authentic right down to the factory hubcaps.
More of this survivor-grade feeling comes the moment you open the door. That red and black weave in the cloth bench is believed to be original, which tells you how well someone has cared for this coupe. In fact, the door panels, headliner, and trim are all just as nicely presented. We believe the carpets are new, which is something most classic car people are quite happy to see, even on a time capsule like this one. The factory steering wheel and big bright dash panel are true Mopar works of art. This holds everything from the extra wide speedometer, to the added oil pressure gauge, to the original AM radio that's still cranking out tunes.
The survivor appearance extends under the hood, too. But more than jut preservation, people will be marveling at the 426 cubic-inch Street Wedge V8 under the hood. So while the bright air cleaner and valve covers are nice for flash, you'll love how it is so well detailed right down to the correct Mopar and Ramcharger stickers. Even better is this motor is correctly date coded to possibly be installed in 1965. The four-barrel carburetor even appears to be the original Carter unit! You'll love the thunderous roar of the dual exhaust, but this car is built for so much more. It's a true muscle machine, so the big V8 is matched with a stout A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic that feeds the Sure-Grip rear end running 3.23 gears.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a survivor-grade coupe with a thunderous heart. So don't do a double-take on the price, because after all, something this desirable will be leaving us quickly. Call today!!!
