1974 Dodge Coronet

The 1974 Dodge Coronet was still the same as the year before with a slight revisions. Torqueflite transmission is standard on every full-sized Dodge along with Torsion-Bar Suspension.  Standard options on the Coronet included a 318-cid V8 or 225-cid 6-cylinder engine as well as vinyl or cloth and vinyl interior combinations and a 19.1 cubic foot trunk.  Inside the Coronet Station Wagon there is 86.8 cubic feet of cargo space – imagine a four-foot-by-eight-foot sheet of plywood lying flat. Station wagons were available as 2 or 3 seat models and all came equipped with a 318 cid V8.

NOTES: The first Paint Code identifies the roof or accent color. The second Paint Code identifies the body color. (For example, the combination W1-B5 on a Dodge would indicate the roof or accent area is in Eggshell White and the body is finished in Lucerne Blue Metallic.) Paint code plates are located in the engine compartment on the left wheel housing, the fender side shield, or the radiator yoke.
