The Coronet is an automobile that was marketed by Dodge as a full-size car in the 1950s, initially the division's highest trim line but, starting in 1955, the lowest trim line. From the 1965 to 1975 model years the name was on intermediate-sized models. A coronet is a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring.
The Fifth generation Coronet R/T, (R/T, standing for "Road and Track") was introduced in 1967. It was available as a two-door hardtop or convertible. Standard engine was Chrysler's largest, the 440-cid V-8, it was tweaked to 375 bhp and christened the Magnum.
Transmission choices were Mopar's excellent heavy-duty three-speed TorqueFlite automatic or a four-speed manual. Many Mopar fans were weekend racers in the 1960's and the Coronet R/T was a popular choice both on the road and track.
The project 1967 Dodge RT we have at Skyway Classics could well be your dream weekend racer that you can finish to your own tastes as you restore it.
Features & Parts
The R/T package from the factory included non-functional hood scoops and simulated rear fender air vents, stiffer suspension, heavy duty brakes, and red streak tires. The standard engine option was the Magnum 440 w/ 375 horsepower that was hooked to a four-speed transmission. Those parts are included in this RT we have.
According to the owner, it has almost 98% of the parts need to finish it including the above mentioned engine with valve covers, crankshaft, valve train, bell housing, transmission, seats, bumpers, trim, headlights, new floor in the trunk, gas tank and sending units, and more.
Just think of getting behind the wheel of this Coronet R/T we have at Skyway Classics and having all the power of the 440 engine sending power to the rear wheels to light the rears up. Finish the project the way you like with this project.
