1966 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible

There's just something about a classic Mopar that makes you pay attention, especially with this 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 convertible. With V8 power, a terrific color combo, and the distinct square-jawed look make it definitely attractive. White is particularly nice when it's done correctly. The respray of the factory color gives this a nice shine when the light hits it, and that's what you want in a sunshine-friendly convertible. Dodge really got the design right in '66. This... classic 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 flares 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. Bright bumpers, complete trim, and upgraded alloys with a classic Mag 500 look give this a nice presence. But our favorite part is the custom pinstriping. The red draws extra attention to some of the best line in the sheetmetal, and at the same time, it coordinates nicely with the interior. The red interior is a terrific color combo against the white exterior. These Dodges really had style with a premium ribbed pattern on the seats that's continues on the door panels and even the dash. Plus, this is a driver's machine with bucket seats and a center console. You also have provisions for a power convertible top. While this all looks quite stock, you do get the right upgrades. The wood-rimmed steering wheel feels grippy in your hands. And the AM/FM/CD stereo not only gives you modern driving music, but also there's a USB input to plug in your iPod or charge your phone. The 318 cubic-inch V8 is the correct displacement for this Mopar, but you can instantly see that this one has been thoroughly upgraded. Ribbed Holley valve covers and a matching ribbed long air topper have the look of power. And this V8 delivers that performance with upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, hi-temp wires, and long tube headers that feed a sweet-sounding dual exhaust. The Torqueflite A727 three-speed transmission is built to handle the power, and at the same time, deliver easy automatic shifting. Plus, more of this nice driving attitude is in the power steering and power brakes w/discs up front. Complete with its original warranty card, this Coronet convertible is the rare treat that offers power and distinction. So you know it's a deal you want to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
