Description for Dodge Coronet 1965

I'm listing our 1965 Dodge Coronet 440 two door hardtop. My son bought it in 2012 to work on while in Technical College. but it's not really what he wanted so it's up for sale. It had been sitting under a shelter in central Georgia for 25+ years when the guy we bought it from got it. He painted everything under the hood black. red. and silver for some reason. and the wheels blue. He also removed the gas tank and strapped a 5 gallon gas can inside the trunk. At least he ran a vent line outside the trunk! The original motor was gone when he got it and it has what is believed to be an early 70's slant six in it now. Our plan was to put a 383 in it and convert the three on the tree to a floor shift four speed. but it never happened. It is a driveable project. but at a minimum it needs brakes. floor pans. a gas tank. and new metal fuel lines to be road worthy. Odometer now reads 6105. but actual mileage is unknown. According to the Fender Tag it was originally a 361 big block car with 3 speed manual transmission. It has a three speed manual on the column. It is a manual steering. manual drum brake car. It has the factory remote driver mirror. and variable speed wipers. The variable speed wiper motor works the driver side wiper. but one piece of the linkage is missing from under the dash that works the right side. The taillamp lenses are cracked. It still appears to have what's left of the original Dark Turquoise Metallic and White paint. It need a complete restoration to be nice. but it is the most solid unrestored mid 60's Mopar I've seen in a while. The passenger compartment floors are in poor shape. but AMD makes a correct reproduction one piece floor pan for this car (or individual patch panels could be used). It had some import bucket seats. but I bought a 63 Polara split bench seat to go in it. Both rear quarters need patch panels where the quarter panel rolls under to the trunk drop-off. The front fenders have a very small amount of rust on the lower rear of the wheel openings. and there are a few very small holes on the top of the driver fender. The trunk floor and the rest of the body is solid. but there are some minor dents and dings present. There is surface rust on the hood with some pitting. but I couldn't find any holes. Underneath the hood (including the front lip) is clean and solid. There is no broken or cracked glass. but the windshield is fogging around the edges. The grille will need to be repaired or replaced. The decklid has a dent and the rear lip of it is badly rusted so it will need to be replaced for anything other than a ratrod. The bumpers would be good cores for rechroming. The tires have held air ever since we got it and it rolls very easy. but the tires are dryrotted. It has a set of 4 dog dish hub caps. but the right rear wheel has a smaller pattern for the mounting ears and hubcap won't stay on it. I had the door and ignition locks rekeyed so they match and work smoothly. We have a clear Georgia registration for the car in our name because Georgia doesn't require a title on a vehicle this old. I have sold quite a few old vehicles to title state buyers with a notarized bill of sale and a copy of my Georgia registration and none had any problems getting the vehicles titled in their state. nbsp; so getting a title in Florida or another title state won't be a problem. Although the car runs and drives. I would recommend trailering it due to the bad brakes/tires. A deposit of $500 through paypal is required within 48 hours of auction end. and balance due within 7 days. I will accept personal check for the balance. but neither the car nor the paperwork will be released until the check has had sufficient time to clear the bank. I would consider delivering the car up to 250 miles from Statenville. GA 31648 for $2. 10/loaded mile. I will be willing to store the car for up to 30 days after auction end as long as it is paid for according to the terms of the auction. If you have any questions or would like to see any other pictures let me know. Thanks. I have a pair of NOS taillamp lenses that the buyer of the car will have the option to get for $150 for the pair. I also have a 1966 Monaco with a 383 that has been off the road since 1978. My plan was to rebuild and use the 383 in the Coronet. The 383 is available to the buyer of the Coronet as well for $550.
