The GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this 1966 Dodge Coronet for
your consideration. This vehicle is in remarkable condition due to
the fact that it has been gone through with a fine tooth comb and
upgraded where desired to make this Coronet a truly special
example. Giving this vehicle tremendous acceleration is a 1969' 440
with six pack carbs and factory HP cast iron exhaust manifolds that
was completely rebuilt in 2018 that the owner reports produces an
estimated 465hp. The engine produces an aggressive exhaust note
with assistance to a TTI Exhaust and dual Flowmaster mufflers. This
Coronet sends the power to the rear wheels through a 4-speed A883
Transmission. The vehicle has an aggressive stance sitting on
Cragar wheels that are equipped with BF Goodrich Radial T/A Tires
of which the owner reports the 255/60 rear tires are recently
replaced. The front brakes have been upgraded to factory disc
brakes, drums are still equipped in the rear. The exterior was
repainted in 2006 with the factory color of ZZ1 Gold Poly with a
matching Citron Gold Interior, both of which present beautifully
and show minimal wear and imperfections. This Coronet has received
accolades at the "World of Wheels" show winner in its class and has
received many other winnings. You will be hard pressed to find a
nicer Coronet being offered today.
The Coronet is an automobile that was marketed by Dodge in seven
generations, and shared nameplates with the same body shell with
varying levels of equipment installed. Introduced as a full-size
car in 1949, it was the division's highest trim line and moved to
the lowest level starting in 1955 through 1959. The name was
reintroduced on intermediate-sized models from the 1965 to 1976
model years. Other performance models included the "Superbee", and
featured the 6.3 L Magnum, among other engine options. The
nameplate "Coronet" is a type of crown worn by royalty. 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 500.
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
