For Sale: 1967 Dodge Coronet in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

California car. Mostly original with one repaint. Strong-running 440, automatic, buckets, console, and unusual Safety Package. Great color combination, fantastic runner. A super clean, unmolested R/T that delivers on its awesome look!The dramatic cantilever roofline works as well on the full-sized Coronet as it does on its smaller siblings, making it instantly recognizable and very much a product of the '60s. Chrysler stylists took it easy everywhere else, so the contrast is especially effective and the angular styling works extremely well. The good news is that those long, straight body panels don't leave any place for lousy workmanship to hide, and thanks to spending most of its life in California, the bright red flanks on this R/T are quite good indeed. The doors swing open easily and close with a reassuring mechanical sound that seems unique to Chrysler. As an R/T, there are a few spiffs, including the four little scoops on the hood and the simulated air intakes on the quarters, but again, none of it is over-done. Add in the handsome fine-toothed grille and matching tail panel, and this car looks aggressive without seeming like a kid's car. Details like the chrome bumpers with unusual bumper guards, stainless body trim, and all the black vinyl top remain in excellent condition with no critical issues. This car has never been fully restored yet still looks great 55 years later.Buckets with a console in between makes the Coronet's interior functional as well as sporting. We believe the upholstery is original and in fantastic condition with no critical wear or split seams. The door panels feature unique 'Coronet R/T' badges and the black carpets are in excellent shape-they've surely been replaced at some point. The factory gauges were pretty complete, although a console-mounted tachometer is always welcome on a car with this much performance. Crisp markings and clear lenses look great through the spokes of the three-spoke wheel and even the original Music Master AM radio is still in the dash. R/T emblem floor mats dress things up a bit and the Safety Package option group added headrests to the seats, which was a rare find in 1967. The massive trunk is properly outfitted with a reproduction mat, correct jack in the quarter panel, and a full-sized spare stowed underneath.The standard engine in the 1967 Coronet R/T was a 440 cubic inch 'Magnum' V8 that was pretty much the biggest engine you could buy in a muscle car in 1967. With 375 horsepower, it's certainly no slouch in the performance department and despite its size, the Coronet has a rather impressive power-to-weight ratio. There's no way to verify 'matching numbers' in the traditional sense on a 1967 Dodge, but it does have a correct C 440 HP stamping on the block. We don't have any history on a rebuild, but it runs and drives extremely well, with an Edelbrock 4-barrel hiding under the original air cleaner. It's also neatly dressed in corporate turquoise engine enamel, a correct dual snorkel air cleaner, and finned Mopar Performance valve covers that add some flash. Power steering is a welcome additions on something this big and this fast and please note how clean the firewall and inner fenders are-California cars really are better. With the TorqueFlite's easy-going nature and 3.23 gears out back, this torque factory is easy to get off the line without incinerating the tires and it's a relaxed cruiser at speed, making it an all-purpose muscle car that you'll love to drive. Shifts are crisp but not harsh and the rumbling dual exhaust system makes this one of the best-sounding cars we've featured in a long time. You'll note that the undercarriage is not restored to show standards-it's mostly original-but there's no evidence that this car ever spent a day in winter weather. The original floors, rockers, trunk extensions, and torque boxes are all in fantastic condition. Yes, there's some surface scale, but nothing that needs attention or cause for concern-just check out the spot welds on the rocker seam! The suspension is full of recent parts so it rides nicely and goes down the road straight, even with original-style 7.75-14 redline tires which are mounted on handsome Magnum 500 wheels.This is one of those cars that continued to surprise us after it arrived. It has exactly zero bad habits, a fantastic look, and enough performance that you'll always be able to put a smile on your face just by wiggling the toes on your right foot. That's what big block muscle cars are all about, and this one gets all the important stuff right. For that reason, we think it's an absolute slam-dunk.
