65 Dodge Coronet

Post by junkyard junky on May 15th 2015, 5:54 am

Traded for this 65 Coronet from a friend. Had to throw in some cash but this is a solid rust free California car. 318 with power steering, power brake, bucket seats, console with tachometer and air conditioning. Need to do a tune up on it. Seats needs to be redone along with a new carpet.

That looks like a really nice find. A good friend of mine had a two door post car like that and made it into a Nostalgia Super Stocker with a Hemi. Looks nice in white with the white rims.

Picked up some 15x6.5's from a guy I use to work with. Powder coated black. Crawled under the car today and found out one freeze plug leaking and a harmonic balancer /pulley that ready to come off due to the rubber being dry rotten.

Pulled the engine and installed new gaskets. Order tubular upper control arms and adjustable strut rods. Rear end was pulled out and new axle bearings installed along with leaf spring bushings.

That's going to make it nice. I was never a big fan of the suspension on those Mopars.

I like it better than installing coil springs. Hard to find parts that fit correctly.
