Seller's Notes

So, you've undoubtedly browsed the photos of this chin-checking Dodge Coronet. And you've probably formed a few thoughts and opinions. Indeed, the car is a righteously retro custom that was built to turn heads. And yes, the car IS capable of hitting the drag strip and knocking down some impressive times. However, this mighty MoPar isn't just some whipped dragster that's been wrapped in nostalgic paint. It's a bona fide street steed that's been professionally sorted for both the street and the strip. Backing 511 cubic inches of professionally built Hemi with a buff A727 3-speed, a custom chassis and killer aesthetics, this beast has been dropping jaws ever since it rolled into our showroom! And if you're the kind of enthusiast who wants a classic that poses well for judges AND kicks asphalt in the quarter, it's a chance to turn your dreams in to reality! POLISHING THE GOLD This magazine-featured Dodge spent most of its life as a slant-6 Coronet Deluxe sedan. That is, until vintage Funny Car enthusiast Richard LeFebvre located it in early 2004 and kicked off an intense build that, with the help of an altered wheelbase, shaved a pair of the car's doors. The new 2-door profile capped steel doors, a steel trunk and a steel hood with composite fenders and composite bumpers that were ordered directly from the pros at Fiberglass Plus, Inc. And naturally, a distinctly '60s profile looks best in '60s pigment, which is why 1965 Dodge Gold worked so well under vintage, hand-painted graphics. For the next 12 years, this MoPar roared along as a deliberately faithful tribute to moody racers of a bygone era. But then, in 2017, a professional freshening, conducted by Mike Mancini's American Muscle Car Restorations, Inc., totally refined the car into a clean, street-friendly marvel that's both sorted and reliable. Today, this Dodge rocks as a dreamy pavement pounder that's poised to claim trophies and sure to turn heads! Thanks to an acute attention to detail, this Coronet certainly puts the hot in hot rod. At the front of the car, a black-trimmed grille hangs a MQQN Equipment catch can between clear parking lamps, a painted bumper and halogen headlights. Behind that grille, 15-inch, Ramcharger-style ram tubes front a stainless-trimmed greenhouse that's lightened by plastic side windows. At the sides of those tubes, a clean profile is devoid of everything but factory door handles. And at the back of the car, a Dodge-branded trunk bends around stylish taillights, a small kill switch and a second painted bumper. REFINING THE RUSH Gaze into this classic's fenderless engine bay and you'll find 511 cubic inches of stroked Hemi big block that turns 93-octane pump gas into stout 10.5 to 1 compression and 488 rear-wheel horsepower. Built by Richard LeFebvre, and fully overhauled by Richard LeVangie, the massive mill is currently tuned for max drivability. The foundation for that cruising is a 1965 Chrysler iron block that's filled with a billet Winberg crank, billet Manley rods, forged Ross pistons and an Indy solid roller cam. Those components spin thanks to Hilborn aluminum fuel injection, which has been modified to accept EFI bungs, fuel rails and 40lb./hr. injectors. Those stacks, commanded by a Holley electronic control module, flood aluminum Mopar Performance heads that, in addition to being machined, stack 2.25/1.94 valves under adjustable Indy rollers, chromoly pushrods and aluminum shaft stands. At the front of those stainless-capped heads, an electronic Chrysler distributor sequences spark between a hot MSD Blaster coil and MSD Super Conductor plug wires. Under those wires, quality Hooker headers feed a 3-inch exhaust system that's finished with rowdy Flowmaster mufflers. Cooling is simple, with a Mopar Performance high-volume water pump insert siphoning a 22-inch radiator. Oiling is easy thanks to a trick 7-quart pan and a high-volume Milodon pump. And cadence is kept by COMP double-roller timing components. STREETING
