This 1965 Dodge Coronet has the right combination of originality, performance, and attitude that makes mid-60s Mopars so special. From the handsome styling, to a strong-running 318 Poly V8, this neat hardtop is seldom-seen Dodge that delivers performance and big car comfort in one sleek package.
Originally a Cordovan-colored coupe, this has been given a professional respray that adds a little more modern hue and shine. Now we would describe the super-slick finish as rich and slippery as a burgundy wine swirling in a crystal glass. The color is perfect for highlighting Chrysler's famous cantilever styling. That paint also showcases some very straight sheetmetal, so there's no place for haphazard bodywork to hide. Just as crucial is the brightwork, which is all present and quite nice. It helps highlight the extra-wide front end, angular hardtop, and runs the full length of this coupe. The doors open and close with impressive precision, and everything lines up rather well. It's an overall presentation that feels authentic right down to the factory hubcaps.
The interior is a high-quality presentation two-tone where the darker elements on the seats and door panels seem to match nicely with the exterior color. The brighter red that dominates the rest of the interior has a factory-like level of freshness. The center console is a Mopar work of art. And the same goes for the factory steering wheel and the big bright dash panel. This holds everything from the extra wide speedometer, to the original AM radio that's still cranking out tunes.
You'll love lifting the hood at cars shows. The painted engine bay with gloss black air cleaner and big, bold red block will fill you with pride every time you show it off. But more than just a fantastic presentation, it's a desirable 318 cubic-inch "Polysphere" V8. Unrelated to the later 318 motor, this one evolved from the Red Ram 241ci Hemi. Its calling card was torque, and the rumble of the dual exhaust lets everyone know you you've got power to spare. But this is also a cool cruising machine, and you know it thanks to features like power steering and the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission.
This is the vintage Dodge that does it all. It has a great appearance inside and out; it has a powerful and unique V8 under the hood; and it's available right now at a great price. So when a classic can do all this and come with good paperwork like the original dealer invoice and owner's manual, you know this is a great deal that won't stick around here for long. Call today!
