While a lot of guys are busy chasing Chargers and Daytonas, it's easy to
overlook the Dodge Coronet R/T. Available with the same ground-pounding big
blocks as its brothers, it was a reasonably-priced alternative for the guy
who wanted big performance for not a lot of money. This particular 1968
Coronet R/T packs its original, numbers-matching 440 under the hood, and
has been treated to a high-quality rotisserie restoration that pegs the wow
meter thanks to a brilliant QQ1 Bright Blue Metallic paint job.
A lot of shops get the Bright Blue Metallic wrong, but the guys who sprayed
this one nailed it. Not too light, not too dark, it is indeed vivid and
bright as the name implies, and there's just enough metallic in it to make
it glow without looking like some escapee from a mid-70s AutoRama.
Restoration photos show a clean, solid original car in surprisingly good
shape before the project started, and thorough examination of the body
shows that the workmanship is first rate. Correct white bumble-bee sport
stripes were applied around the tail, and their alignment is proof that the
bodywork was exceptionally well done.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching 440 Magnum, which has been
fully rebuilt and detailed to original specifications. The engine bay is
extremely well finished, with beautiful paint and correct components,
ranging from the black wrinkle finish on the original air cleaner, to the
Mopar Turquoise engine paint, to the beautifully preserved Exhaust manifolds. Proper decals and markings
have been used where appropriate, and things like the ballast resistor and
wiper motor are correct for the car's October 1967 production date. You'll
also be pleased to find a reproduction red cap battery instead of some
parts store generic piece, an oversight many restorers forget.
This Coronet was originally equipped with a 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed
automatic, but during the restoration, a 4-speed manual was installed in
its place. The conversion was correctly done, with a modified transmission
tunnel to accommodate the transmission's side-mounted shift mechanism. Out
back, there's a correct eight and three-quarter inch rear with 3.23 gears
and a Sure Grip limited slip, as original. Everything is new, from the
brake lines and hoses, to the gas tank, to the fresh dual Exhaust system with the correct tips. New shock
absorbers and fresh bushings have been installed at all four corners, so it
will ride like a new car. The finishing touch are those gorgeous Magnum
500s wearing BFGoodrich Silvertown redline radials.
The interior has been restored to the same brilliant standards as the rest
of the car, including the buckets with the unusual center seat that makes
this a true 6-passenger automobile. All the soft parts, including the door
panels, carpets, dash pad, headliner, and seat covers are brand new and
correct in every way, right down to the 'Coronet R/T' emblems on the doors
and dash. The gauges have all been restored with sharply detailed faces,
including the tic-toc-tach. As I mentioned, the transmission tunnel was
correctly modified for the 4-speed's shifter, which is a Hurst unit topped
by a white cue ball knob. The trunk features a new mat, full-sized spare on
a steel wheel, and a correct jack assembly.
With all the focus on the other members of the Dodge lineup in 1968, it's
easy to overlook the Coronet. But that also means that the R/Ts like this
one are screaming bargains, and still offer all the same performance and
handsome good looks as their siblings. The way this car is priced, it's
like paying for the restoration and getting the car for free and without
the wait. The cruising season is here—take this one home and don't sit
out another year waiting for the right car to come along. Call today!
