Sure, you can love this 1965 Dodge Coronet 440 convertible because
it has a vintage appeal, right down to the dog dish hubcaps. But
really it's the thundering 440 V8 with cross-ram intake and dual
four-barrel carbs under the hood that makes this classic drop-top
such an irresistible buy.
Bright red paint has an attractive look on any classic drop-top.
But this is a fresher application done within about the last 10
years. It means there's a hint of more modern shine, and that seems
to let the sunlight show off the crisp lines and straight body of
this Mopar. Good chrome bumpers, full-length trim, and those
wrap-up tail lights all gives this a well-done vintage
presentation. Plus, there's a lot of cool style in this
convertible. The black folding roof goes with the insert in the
side trim for a subtle two-tone effect. And the details like the
long dual exhaust tips and dog dish hubcaps (with extra meaty rear
rubber) just seem to subtly let you in on the knowledge that this
is a true street machine.
With the flip of a switch, the roof powers down, and the interior
continues the theme of red with black accents. So this one has a
well-coordinated style with the top up or down. And because you can
tell there was an investment in the fundamentals, like the
upholstery, you'll happily share this look with the world. The
whole interior likes to be very vintage, and that's a good thing in
a Dodge of this era. Mopars from these years had a hint more style
and substance, and you see it in features like the push-button
transmission selector. In fact, the only thing that you'll spot
here that isn't stock is the cleanly placed auxiliary gauge trio...
and you'll appreciate this addition when you see what's in the
Under the hood is a sight that makes Mopar fans weak in the knees.
It's the unmistakable offset dual four-barrel carburetors of the
cross-ram intake. Beneath that it's the mightiest of the mighty:
it's the 440 cubic-inch big block currently made for 446ci total.
Oh yeah, that front license plate with the extra X in Maxx is there
for a reason! Getting this power to the ground means the right
components. The Torqueflite 727A three-speed automatic transmission
is Mopar's stout unit. And that rear end has traction bars and
plenty of wide rubber to meet the road. The result is a drop-top
that really knows how to put plenty of extra wind in your hair.
Complete with restoration photos, you're looking at a classic
convertible with a thunderous heart. So when you can get Max Wedge

desirable will be leaving us quickly. Call today!!!
