You'll stand out from the crowd, too, if you're behind the wheel of this '66 Dodge Coronet 500 with a big surprise under the hood. Assembled in Chrysler's Los Angeles, California factory (VIN code 5), on April 29, 1966, the car is finished in white (code WW1), the car's paint is in overall excellent order with original trim. The car's body is straight, the bumpers are in satisfactory order and fit tightly to the body, its engine bay is extremely tidy as is the trunk. A Super Start battery is in place under the hood. Reportedly, no body panel or parts have been replaced. This Coronet rolls on Mastercraft Avenger G/T tires, size 235/70R14 at every corner. Each tire is mounted to a period original Cragar S/S alloy wheel, which are over 30 years old! The wheels are in excellent shape and the tires show a very good order, with more than adequate tread. Despite the 383 badges on the front fenders and the G in the VIN, a rebuilt 1968 440 CID V-8 lives under the hood now. It has a mild cam, Edelbrock carburetor and an aluminum intake manifold and breathes via dual exhausts. Backing the motor is Chrysler's well-regarded Torqueflite (code T5) three-speed automatic transmission and a 8 3/4-inch rear end with Sure-Grip (code SG). Inside, this Coronet has received a fresh interior update in the form of reupholstered seats and new carpet. The red front buckets and rear bench are in great shape and contrast nicely with the white exterior. The red headliner, instrument panel and inner door panels are all original. A two-spoke steering wheel greets the driver and the instrument panel has a full array of ancillary gauges but the temperature gauge and odometer are inoperable. The center console, with its silver-lidded storage compartment and matching silver shift lever are high points in Mopar 60s design. A factory AM radio completes the interior. In 1966, Dodge was trying to build up a reputation for excitement and power, moving from its traditional place as the car between Plymouth and Chrysler in size and luxury - a relatively small niche. Completely restyled for 1966 and fully under the control of stylist Elwood Engle, styling was clearly related to the Monaco/Polara in back, but the grille treatment was more Chrysler-like. They were completely restyled for 1966 and were one inch shorter compared to 1965 and wider. The Coronet 500 included bucket seats, deep-pile carpeting, a center console, and a standard V-8 (the 273 was standard, but the 318, 361 and four-barrel 383 were also offered). The automatic had a console shifter; a four-on-the-floor manual was available with the 361 and 383. A huge number of Coronets were sold - more than two for one of any other car sold by Dodge; without Dodge's Charger, it was almost half. Documentation include the original factory Certicard and the original broadcast sheet. The Certicard identification card was initiated in 1965. It identified the vehicle VIN number, select option codes and the original owner's name, address and delivery date for warranty purposes. It was stored in a special black plastic holder in the engine compartment. Competition to this Coronet in 1966 was lengthy - Buick's Skylark, Chevrolet's Chevelle, Ford's Fairlane, Mercury's Monterey, Oldsmobile's Cutlass, Pontiac's Tempest and Plymouth's Belvedere. Mopar fans, fans of mid-60s American cars or anyone who's looking for a solid cruiser and a vehicle that will turn heads should stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check out this mid-60s Dodge Coronet.
