GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1965 Dodge A990 clone
for consideration. Powering this beast of a Mopar is a 426CI Hemi
bored and stroked to a 477CI V8 mated to a 727 automatic
transmission with a manual valve body. The rear end of this Coronet
is all business with 8 3/4 rear end with 410 gears and Moser axles.
This Dodge comes in a bright Viper Red paint job complemented by a
clean A990 gray interior. So if you are in the market for a clean
Mopar that drives as good as it looks this Coronet is the ride for
you! Please call or email us today for more information.
The Coronet reappeared for the 1965 model year as the intermediate
sized B-body using a 117-inch wheelbase, continuing what had been
the Dodge Polara, which was once again full-size. For 1965, Dodge
sold slightly over 209,000 units, making the Coronet the most
popular model sold by Dodge that year. Trim levels initially were
base Coronet including a Deluxe version, Coronet 440, and Coronet
The base Coronet and Deluxe were available as two-door sedans,
four-door sedans, and station wagons. For 1965 only, Dodge also
sold 101 units of a modified wheelbase version of the base Coronet
two-door sedans and 440 hardtops specifically for NHRA drag racing.
The model known as A990 came with a racing version of the 426 cu in
(7.0 L) Hemi engine. The car A990 was stripped of all features and
included lightweight base bucket seats from Dodge's A100 truck/van
line of vehicles. These altered wheelbase vehicles eventually
became popularly known as "funny cars" due to their unique wheel
spacing. The front and rear axles were moved forward significantly
from the stock location, putting the front wheels directly behind
the front fender, and the rear wheels almost under where the rear
seat would normally go; this alteration transferred weight to the
rear tires, increasing traction on launch. From the popular term
"funny cars" was born an entire genre of racing vehicles, which
exists to this day (albeit in the much-transformed form). Front
seat belts and padded dash were standard.
