Here's a photo and video summary of my Dodge Coronet. See my other videos for the engine specs, but any questions, just ask. This is pretty much home-built except for the paint job! Looking forward to the next Mopar project, whenever/whatever that might be, but still a little ways to go on this one.
Shot with a Panasonic DMC-ZS3, and any pixelation in the video is due to the way I converted the raw file from .mov to .wmv so I could work in Windows Movie Maker. Could have been a little better...
1965 Dodge Coronet acceleration part 1
This is up to a little over 5000 rpm - roller valvetrain probably has over 6000 in it. Still working on a few bugs, so I haven't really pushed it yet.
Engine is a '77 440 block (+.030) with KB 10.3:1 hyper pistons, Edelbrock RPM heads, Comp 308R (262 @ .050/.575 lift) solid roller cam, Weiand tunnel ram with Holley 4160 600 cfm carbs. Summit universal 3" X-pipe to Magnaflow 11229 mufflers dumped at the axle. Mopar 8 3/4" (489) rear end with 3.91 suregrip gears. Trans is a 727 built with Hughes parts, turbo Action "Cheetah" reverse manual valvebody, and ACC Boss Hog 3600 stall converter. Color is a BASF single stage urethane enamel called "Red."
Camera is a Panasonic DMC-ZS3 - you can watch the video in HD. I accidentally left the wind filter setting on, so you don't get as good of sound quality with this one.
SLANT 6 Mopar or No Car!
Mopars and very attractive women.....Mopars Kicking ASS! What more can you ask for?!
If you like what you hear, come and visit me at CDBaby! In case anyone is curious, yes, I've owned tons of Mopar products! There is a SRT4 in my driveway right now. I've had Coronet R/T's, Challenger RT, Demon's, 300's, SRT8's, I love em all! And I have no problem with other cool Musclecars. I even own a Buick with a V6 that is fairly quick......
However....I loves me Mother Mopar!
A compilation of Mopar muscle flexing. 'Had to cut it short to keep it under 10 mins. Played perfect in mpeg, but when converting to flv it didn't want to sync perfect, but not bad at all. I hope no one minds that I put them in this video, 'thought you'd enjoy. Feel the RUSH! (Whoops! my typo - "Tingle - Tingle - Tingle!")

1977 Honda Civic With Mopar 440 Burnout
Just a small clip doing a burnout. This is a 1977 Honda Civic that I built. It has Pinto front susp./ four-link rear with a narowed Ford 9". Mopar 440/TF727. Full tube frame and 10point cage. There is no tubs or floor yet.
Chevy Big Block Engine Starting
We just finished our new Chevy Big-Block engine, wich will soon find a home in our 1980 Camaro. It is just one of many BBC's that I have built. It is a "street friendly" 10:1 all forged, mechanical roller with too many goodies to list . It sounds crazy and I can't wait to feel the tire shreading performance.
1965 Dodge Coronet Super Stock Hemi
This is an AHRA record holder and one of a handful of factory Coronet Super Stock Dodges to survive today. Approximately 100 were built, only a handful are known to exist today. These cars came stripped from the factory with rear seat delete, radio delete, heater delete, stamped steel wheels, dome light and reserve light delete, park gear delete, corning light weight glass, cowl induction, and more.
Dodge Coronet GREAT ENGINE SOUND
Nothing makes me feel quite like I do when I'm around a deep muscle car sound, and being able to see it first hand instead of just watching other videos on YouTube was really fun and amazing. It says 440 on the side of it but I talked to the owner and its just the badge it came with, its actually a Plymouth motor inside it, a 460 something. Either way, its awesome!! If you don't have a subwoofer attached to your computer speakers, the sound will not be accurate, you could actually FEEL the sound coming from it, it was so cool. Sorry guys, I'm not sure of the year.
