1 of only 55 Coronet 500s made with a 383 Magnum and a 4-speed! We have the original fender tag and build sheet to document the car. A collector purchased it in 2014, it was an unrestored but solid car with the matching numbers motor. He spent 2 years giving it a high quality rotisserie restoration. Only 3,800 miles since finished.

EXTERIOR: It was stripped to a bare shell and put on a rotisserie so every angle could be easily finessed. It required very little body work. All original metal except an NOS fender. Repainted its original Dark Burnt Orange poly color. The paint is laid out evenly and the clear is polished smooth and glossy. The white Bumble Bee stripe and top really pop! Both look like new. Windshield was replaced. The chrome was replated, stainless was polished. Weather strips and seals were replaced. It is rolling on a set of BFG radial redline tires and painted rims with poverty wheels.

INTERIOR: I swear it\'s as close to brand new in here as you can get. From carpet to headliner, it is mint and it all fits right too. In front of me are factory rallye gauges and they look new along with the instrument panel, knobs, gauges, heater controls, dash pad, steering wheel, glove box etc. The door panels and armrests are excellent. The seats feel good, the upholstery and headrests are bright white. Down on the floor the carpet and mats look like new, the best part is the bench seat shifter sticking out of the hump. Overhead has a new headliner, visors mirror and dome light. The seat belts look like new. It has a retro stereo in the factory hole. Everything functions properly: tachometer, key buzzer, clock, interior lights, heater blower etc.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: This has the N code 383 high performance Magnum engine. It is original number match to this car. The motor looks all stock except for an upgraded dual feed Holley carb. It\'s very obvious this engine compartment was completely disassembled and properly restored. Every component looks clean and proper. Squirters are hooked up, battery is bolted down, it has hood insulation, correct hose clamps. It features power steering and brakes.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Wow, it\'s beautiful in here too. Pristine metal and it\'s all painted and clear coated smooth and glossy. It\'s detailed: the marker light housing, tail light housings, the latches, wiring all look like new. Reproduction weather strip, seat divider and trunk mat. It has a matching BFG radial red line on a painted rim. Complete jack assembly.

UNDERSIDE: It was flipped on a rotisserie and every component underneath the car was removed. Extremely clean original rust free metal. The frame rails, floors and rockers are dry and smooth. They were prepped and painted a semi gloss black. The steering and suspension have been completely rebuilt. Front and back shocks were replaced. The brake system was completely replaced and upgraded with disc at all four wheels. It has a custom e-brake assembly. The fuel system was completely replaced including the tank. Great sounding dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers and the correct square tips. Looking up at the motor it is still spotless, new high torque starter. It has the correct casting codes, dates and the VIN number by the oil pan matches the car. It was born a 4-speed car and has a correct trans. The linkage looks new. 8 3/4 rear with 3.55 Sure Grip gears.

SERVICE: We inspected the car and adjusted the choke, rotated the tires, repaired the passenger door lock and adjusted the e-brake.

This car is extremely impressive. The fit, finishes and functions are at the level we are all in search of. It will make its new owner very proud. The poverty wheels really are the perfect choice for this non R/T sleeper. Someone ordered this car to either win some street races or outsmart the insurance company.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car\'s condition in detail. **These cars are displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car, your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year membership.
