1965 Dodge Coronet - Homebuilt Big Block Mopar

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...
