1968 DODGE CORONET 440 R/T CONVERTIBLE - 58,214 MILES SHOWING
Before there were Charger R/Ts or Road Runners, the Dodge Coronet R/T was introduced in 1967 and was loaded with nothing less than a 440 Magnum engine.
An early and quite rare muscle car from the USA, this example in yellow with complimentary black interior trim, is one of only 513 made. The present owner imported the car from Las Vegas about 10 years ago in a restored condition. Not satisfied with it's condition, the owner has proceeded with additional expense and upgrades to the car to bring it to current status.
They include a new LSD differential, new brakes, new power steering box, front suspension rubbers, shock absorbers, 4 new power window motors, new HD engine fan, air cleaner, many new electrics, tyres, switches and a new period correct woodgrain steering wheel.
Build date was the 2nd of April 1968.
Powered by a 440ci (7.2Lt) Magnum engine, it produced when new 375bhp (279Kw) of power, delivered to the rear wheels via a 3 speed Torqueflite 727 transmission. Performance was rated at 0.100kph in just over 5.0 secs and a top speed near 210kph. Very quick in the 60's and still very respectable today.
