US 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T Rotisserie Restored Coronet R/T 426 Dual Quad HEMI V8 4 Speed Dana 60 3. 54 PS PB Year: 1968 Type of vehicle title: Clear Primary color: Red Mileage: 2221 Transmission type: 4 Speed Manual Engine: 426 HEMI V8 Interior color: White Vehicle Info Even in our showroom of one-of-a-kind collector cars. few vehicles are as coveted as late 60s Mopars. From their wide stance and all-American sheetmetal to their distinctive V8 rumble and outrageous 'war paint'. Chrysler's star muscle cars scream for attention. demand respect and pull big numbers. That's because HEMI powered Mopars. like Ford's Shelby Mustangs and Pontiac's Super Duty Trans Ams. are considered the ultimate factory performance machines by pretty much anyone who's ever turned a wrench. And naturally. all that high praise creates big time exclusivity which adds a 40 to 50 percent premium to the price of any professionally restored metal. Need examples? Not too long ago we sold this sinister blue Roar Runner for a cool $90K. and before that we sent this 1 of 1 GTX to its proud new owner for a solid $95K! Well. they say luck happens in threes. and as luck would have it this authentic Hemi/4-speed Coronet mixes correct red paint. a correct white on black interior and a correct 4-speed transmission with a killer Mopar Performance V8. If you're looking for some awesome Chrysler muscle that you can drive. enjoy and watch appreciate. this rare B-Body is the opportunity of a lifetime!1 of 100 Hemi/4-speed Coronets built for the 1968 model year. this coupe rolled off Chrysler's St. Louis assembly line with the following roster of equipment:CAR: Dodge Coronet R/T 2-door hardtopENGINE: 426 cubic inch high performance HEMI V8 which came equipped with two 4-barrel carburetorsTRANSMISSION: Floor shifted 4-speed manualTIRES: F70x15 nylon belted red sidewall tiresMODEL YEAR: 1968BUILD DATE: December 31st of 1967AXLE: Either a Dana 60 or 8. 75 rear end which came equipped with either 3. 54 or 3. 55 gearsINTERIOR: White on black sport trim interior with vinyl bucket seats.

Not 'circus show' bright or 'Farmall flat'. it is indeed as smooth and even as its name implies with a pigment that's just bright enough to serve as either a tough weekend strip warrior or a well-mannered street car. It appears the car's restoration began with a solid original body that was in surprisingly good shape; and a current examination of that body reveals that all repairs made were conducted with high quality materials and first rate workmanship. Naturally. the body's restoration-fresh panel gaps are narrow and precise. Subsequently excellent panel alignment lays the foundation for moving parts which open and close with ease and echo nice. solid sounds. And at the back of the body. a correct white bumblebee sport stripe has been applied with a keen eye toward authenticity and. when combined with the paint's perfect reflections and the body panels ripple-free profile. creates one stellar Mopar muscle car!Dodge's Coronet was a little plainer than its Charger sibling. but a lot of people like that contrast and dig the car's super clean looks. At the front of this R/T's clean profile a body-width. stainless-trimmed grille hangs a bright "R/T" emblem and four clear headlights above a pristine chrome bumper and clear. round parking lamps. Above that grille a smooth red hood. which wears a traditional Mopar power bulge. flows to like-new glass that's sandwiched between fresh stainless trim. dulled stainless wipers and straight chrome drip rails. Below that hood subtly sculpted panels. which cast solid and unbroken reflections. hang familiar chrome door handles. small round marker lights and strategically placed "R/T and "HEMI" emblems between new stainless wheel trim. dent-free rocker mouldings and a traditional driver's mirror. And at the back of those panels. a satin black valence hangs factory fresh tail lights and a fourth red "R/T" emblem above a bright "DODGE" script. a second pristine bumper. and small. rectangular exhaust tips. Under this hot B-Body's hood you'll find a hot. 426 cubic inch Mopar Performance engine which. like the elephant it's modeled after. easily produces a solid 425 horsepower and a stout 490 lb. /ft. of torque. Fully rebuilt. and completely detailed. this sweet big block combines the best attributes of that original 426 design with a few modern upgrades to deliver a killer combination of unbeatable performance and everyday drivability. At the top of the monster motor. two coated Edelbrock carburetors sip Sinclair through fresh stainless fuel lines and suck air through a large chrome air cleaner that's branded with a subtle orange decal. At the base of those carburetors a correct. HEMI Orange intake props a familiar points distributor between traditional Organisol covered valve covers. And at the sides of that intake. fire travels into the cylinders via eight reproduction Chrysler Corporation Electronic Suppression plug wires which snake around two correctly restored exhaust manifolds. Cooling for the big engine is provided by a familiar 26 inch Chrysler radiator which circulates water through fresh hoses and correct squeeze clamps. And like the motor itself. the car's smooth red engine bay is highly detailed and exceptionally impressive from its reproduction Mopar red cap battery all the way to its fresh decals and Chrysler branded washer fluid tank. Behind that big HEMI engine you'll find a correct A833 18 spline 4-speed that's just a driveshaft away from a correct Dana 60 posi-traction rear end and excellent 3. 54 gears. The car's correct front torsion bar and rear leaf spring suspension presents as new from its brake lines and hoses all the way to its shocks and tie rods. This chassis left the factory with power front disc and rear drum brakes. and so they remain. along with a fresh power steering system. At the center of the floors. a free flowing. true dual exhaust system sends charred dinosaurs through an H-pipe crossover to awesome dual chamber Flowmaster mufflers and traditional stainless tips. And speaking of the floors. yes. they have been over-restored to match the body. but you can't argue with how good it looks; and imagine the comments from your friends as you wheel up in your new Coronet and instruct them to have a look underneath. The mill's power flows to the ground through familiar chrome Magnum 500s which wear sticky 225/70 BF Goodrich Silvertown red walls. And the car's rock solid undercarriage has been fitted with all new hardware that includes a new stainless fuel tank and new stainless fuel lines. Open this B-Body's elongated doors and you'll be greeted by a correct black and white vinyl interior that's been restored to the same brilliant standards as the rest of the car. In the late 60s Chrysler was still well into its personal luxury phase. and that mindset certainly shows in the design of this cockpit. From the white driver's seat. completely restored to match the rest of the passenger's perches. a wood-rimmed and satin-spoked steering wheel extends beyond a well thought dash. To the far left. controls for lights. flashers and a dimmer for the instrument panel are tucked into neat rectangular housings. Directly in front of the wheel. a rebuilt gauge cluster props a Tic-Toc-Tachometer and a large speedometer next to a grid of secondary gauges which keep track of the big cube powerplant's vitals. And to the far right. a correct Dodge Solid State AM radio sits between Chrysler's familiar rolling tuner knobs. At the floor. fresh black carpet is protected by heavy duty "Coronet R/T" branded mats. On the doors. ornate white panels hang stainless trim. chrome handles and pliable armrests below correct white frames that are branded with contrasting "Coronet R/T" emblems. And behind the passengers. a fully restored trunk features a correct lid decal. a new mat. a modern spare and a correct jack assembly. The sale of this awesome Dodge includes a picture of the original fender tag detailed above. With all the focus on big money Chargers and 'Cudas. it's easy to overlook cars like this authentic Hemi/4-speed Coronet. But that also means this super clean hardtop is an underappreciated rarity that offers all the same performance and handsome good looks as its popular siblings with increased exclusivity. Expertly finished in every way. this is one Mopar that will show well at any major event. is an absolute blast to drive. and certainly won't last long!
