1966 Dodge Coronet Project

Post by vettespd20 on December 31st 2013, 4:34 am

1966 Dodge Coronet 318 Poly Motor. Completed a lot of body work and about ready to paint. This is my first project where I completed most of the work.

Still need to put the Chrome back on. I kind of wish we would have decided NOT to put chrome back down the sides. I really like the look it has now. But I will make my final opinion decision when its back on it to see how it looks. If it was a 2 door, it would be a no brainer and be NO side chrome, but being a 4 door it may look decent. I will know in a few days

Thanks man, Its not a show car by any means but it wasn't meant to be. Just a car I wanted to fix up some and sell. Bad thing is I HAVE NO CLUE what to price it at. Its very hard to price something like this (it being a 4 door) interior is all original and everything is there. (factory radio all buttons and knobs to everything complete and everything works)
the carpet looks new, having head liner redone as well as the visors (just stitching came off needs reattached), seats have a couple bad spots (foam is perfect as well as the VINYL on the seats, just the center section where its cloth). I don't know if its worth fixing (was told from 700-1k to fix) or just roll it like it is. I can post pics its nothing crazy bad and again this isn't a show car.

ALSO wheels, should I leave what is on here, put some torques on it or possibly 20's? I want to try and get the most I can get from the sell and not sure what type of person to market for the sale.

Any suggestions would be great, Thanks  cheers

Throw those rims in the garbage. I would not spend money on hi dollar mags. It's a 4 door and you won't get your money back. Make a nice cruiser out of it. Maybe some of those factory Chrysler rallye wheels. Still a little sporty and they are a factory wheel that most Mopar guys flip over. It's not over the top like you are trying to make a 4 door muscle car. Just a nice clean cruiser. Some hot rod Mopar guy may buy it for his wife for a grocery getter.

I can't tell you that. Mopars have a strange following. Some like them most don't. The ones that do are hard core. Just have to look around on ebay and stuff to see what they are going for. I haven't a clue.

You can buy a 2 door for less than that.

Black steelies with poverty caps, or full moon disc. Cut the front springs and block the rear. Just my .02 cents.

Been really busy at the office to finish this thing. But getting closer. Need to put a couple more pieces of chrome on, putting in new carpet this weekend, as well as having the seats recovered. I also need some rubber on the new wheels I went with. I went with something basic that I would sell with or without the car (depends on the buyer) Thanks

I like the poverty cap idea too, but the cragars are hard to argue with. It's your car, be all you can be on your terms. If you like it, somebody someplace else does too.

Yeah, I went to the famous MoPar Nationals a few years back and black steel rims with the correct little MoPar caps were pretty popular. There's an old four door Dodge here in Dayton that you see out once in a great while. It's cream colored with steel rims and usually has four guys in it. It's a really cool old more door because it's clean as a pin with about 3" exhaust and either a 440 or a 426 wedge in it. It sounds way cool for an old four door.

Lookin' good! That moulding down the side definitely helps break up all that blue, truly better with than without. I agree on the wheels- adds some "HP" and some class to a plain jane cruiser. That looks almost good enough to make me switch from the blue oval camp to the pentastar camp! lol

Honestly, I think it's cool. Sharp lookin' ride.

I agree the molding did turn out to make the whole car pop. I only have 1850.00 into the finished product =). I am very excited about that. I plan on trading it off or selling it. It was a fun/educational project but time to sell or trade it to help fund the 61 Impala project
