Description for Dodge Coronet 1967

Talk about the Holy Grail! According to Galen Govier and documented & confirmed by his Physical Inspection Report.  this is one of only three 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T Hemi convertibles ever built. and one of only two with a 4-speed manual. A legion of classic automotive authorities repeatedly list this exact car as "The Rarest Muscle Car Ever Produced".  Start with Horsepower Magazine and then head in any one of a dozens directions and find this declaration emphatically stated pretty much universally. Restored to an incredibly high standard befitting a car of this stature. This car is amazing in every way. and there's no question this one is investment grade This might be the most unusual Mopar we've ever had the pleasure of representing at Harwood Motors. Correctly finished in original QQ1 Dark Red Metallic. the bodywork is exceptional. When restoring a car of this caliber. you can't cut corners. and it's obvious that hundreds of hours went into the finish work on this convertible. Panel alignment is exact. gaps are good enough to set your rulers by. and the two-stage urethane paint glows with the same subtle metallic shine as the original finish. And yes. before you ask. it has 100% of its original sheet metal. with no replacement panels used in the restoration. The unique hood was built before Shakers were popular. and without badges. there’s no way to detect the Hemi living under the hood unless you have a very finely tuned ear. The chrome and stainless has been beautifully restored. and the beautiful fine-toothed grille with matching rear valence are exceptional. This car is show quality in every way. Code P6X means a black bucket seat interior. made even more unusual by the absence of a center console. But when you spec'd a Hemi. convertible or not. there's really no question where the buyer's priorities lie: all-out performance. and a console was really just extra weight. Beautifully restored using the correct grained vinyl and accurate patterns. the passenger compartment shows as well as the bodywork. The black carpets are new. the door panels are exact duplicates of the originals. and the dash has a fresh pad that fits perfectly. Full of rebuilt gauges. the squared-off dashboard gives you only the basics. although the speedometer reads to 150 MPH. not a ridiculously optimistic number when there’s a Hemi under the hood. The original Music Master AM radio still lives in the dash and nothing says performance like that big 4-speed shifter jutting out of the transmission tunnel. A fresh black convertible top has been fitted. and unlike many restored convertibles where the tops were never intended to fold. this one operates as it should. In back. the trunk features a new mat and spare tire cover. and the undercoating on the inside of the quarter panels is proof that the sheet metal is original. Lift up that unusual hood and you'll find perhaps the most famous engine ever built: the mighty 426 Hemi. This is not the original engine. but it is a correct block that has been rebuilt and detailed to show condition. Wearing a bright coat of Hemi Orange paint. the small details are exact. including things like the overspray on the ground cable. properly marked hoses. and a proper ballast resistor on the firewall. The big chrome air cleaner above the matching Carter 4-barrel carburetors is beautifully finished and wears correct '426 Hemi' decals. If anything. the wrinkle finish on the valve covers is too perfectly done—it isn't unusual on original cars to see that the spark plug wires left marks in the freshly applied paint on the assembly line. It runs like a new car. starting easily and running a little rich—as all Hemis do--when it first fires. then settling into a rumbling. threatening idle. If you're brave enough to put your foot in it. you’ll be rewarded with an experience very few people ever enjoy: the wail of a Hemi at full throttle. the slewing of the rear end as the tires scramble for traction. and a giant. maniacal grin on your face that means too much is just enough. Slide underneath and you'll discover beautifully finished floors that are body color. not undercoated to hide detail. You'll also discover that this car still sports its original A833 4-speed manual transmission and 3. 54 geared Dana 60 rear end which is robust enough for the Hemi’s horsepower. The fresh exhaust system is correct—no goofy Flowmasters here—and dumps out with simple turndowns on either side of the gas tank. as original. The suspension and brakes have been fully rebuilt. and you'll be grateful that this one packs power front wheel discs as standard equipment. It rolls on a set of gorgeous Magnum wheels wearing 7. 75-14 BFGoodrich redline bias-ply tires. as original. Fast. rare. and with a top that folds. what else could you possibly need? They built nine 1971 Hemi 'Cuda convertibles. which have been recently changing hands for seven-figures. This one is even scarcer. carries the same firepower. and is fully documented in every way. The last time it changed hands. the price tag was substantially more so it’s now available at a significant discount. Words like "investment grade" and "no expense spared" get tossed around a lot. and maybe they don't mean much anymore. But in the case of this Coronet R/T. they're absolutely true. If you're a serious Mopar collector. rare finds don't get any more amazing than this. The January 2015 international auction activity point to rapid increase in price values for rare American muscle cars once again. This one is the most rare of them all. PERIOD.
