Vehicle Description

1968 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible

History

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.

The Fifth generation Coronet was introduced in 1967. It was available as a two-door hardtop or convertible. Chrysler might have been late to the muscle car party, but they practically invented personal muscle with cars like this restored 1968 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible we have at Adventure Classics.

In addition to the beautiful white top it offers 318 cubic inch power, great colors, and it's seldom-seen at local cruise nights, so you can bet on getting plenty of attention.
