1965 DODGE CORONET
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. A coronet is a small crown consisting of ornaments fixed on a metal ring. The Coronet reappeared for this 5th generation 1965 model year as the intermediate sized B-body using a 117-inch wheelbase, continuing what had been the Dodge Polara, which was once again full-size. For 1965, Dodge sold slightly over 209,000 units, making the Coronet the most popular model sold by Dodge that year. Trim levels initially were base Coronet including a Deluxe version, Coronet 440, and Coronet 500. The Coronet 440 was available as a two-door hardtop, convertible, or station wagon. Coronets were manufactured at Chrysler's Los Angeles assembly plant and at Lynch Road assembly plant in Detroit and St. Louis plant in Missouri.
Talk about a muscle car feel! This particular car is a rare 1965 Dodge Coronet 440 convertible with white convertible power top, 4-speed manual transmission, Posi-trac rear end, and 426ci big block V8 under the hood with chromed out valve covers and air cleaner. It's a rust free, original panel car. The car looks great and turns heads with its deep black paint with Teal accent stripe running down the trim and Teal blue bench seat interior. It looks as clean underneath as it does on top. It starts right up every time and is in excellent mechanical shape. It also comes with dark teal blue carpet, the original Coronet steering wheel, dual exhaust, and Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. To get all that big block power down on the street, the Retro Brand Torq Thrust style wheels complement its BFGoodrich g-Force Comp-2 A/S tires (Front: 225/50 ZR17, Rear: 275/40 ZR17).
The odometer reads 91,729, with true mileage unknown. Believed to be numbers matching car and is definitely period correct according to the fender tag. Period correct power train with excellent power & performance!!! If you love the stock look of these cars then all you need to do is drive it.
