1966 dodge coronet
Here goes the story: I bought this car from a man the used it to chase car shows. Car was already painted and body is rust free and lazier straight.
It had a worn out 440 and drove bad and stopped worse.
Took it home and started building my dream car. Yes I'm not one to do like everyone else and wanted a good looking great handling powerful car.
I removed front end and welded in the shock tower stiffeners, lower radiator stiffener (ties the frame rails together) I bought everything Hotckins sells for this car.
Rear leaf springs, rear hangers, rear sway bar. Gas shocks. Front sway bar. Upper control arms. Torsion bars, torsion arms. Lower control arm stiffeners. Heavy tie rods. And their sub frames. Removed K section and welded it then stiffened the steering box mounts. Powder coated it along with all the other front end parts. Bought a firm feel stage 3 steering box. Ever part on front suspension is Moog (ball joints, bushings)
Installed a disc brake front kit with the drilled rotors and hawk pads. Replaced all brake hoses. Installed a hydro boost brake system with a B&M line lock.
Bought a custom built 502 cu in. Roller motor with he edelbrock heads and 6 pack carbs. Motor is all roller and everything is forged. 600HP 620 torque Only arp fasteners. High torque starter New power steering pump,high output alternator. Digital ignition systems with rev limiter and line lock rev limiter. Adjustable timing control box. Headers with Dougs electric cutouts. 727 transmission fully built, deep pan forged input shaft. Trans cooler, power steering cooler. HID headlights with glass lenses. Quarter stick shifter with line lock on handle. Post rear end 355 gears.. vintage air AC system with hoses in inner fender well. Autometer tachometer and gauges.. I could go on and on point is I have almost 50k in this car not including labor.
I've spent the last 3 years building this car and now I'm starting a new business and need to free up some capital. This cars got less then 10 miles since put together. Everything is new . Motor still needs to be tuned and I've yet to get front suspension aligned. It defiantlyrequires an alignment before putting it on the road. Car has a few nicks in paint and a ding in hood.
This will be a monster on the street that should run in the 11's and handle and stop like a modern car.
Not looking to get back what I've spent but not going to give it away either
Feel free to call me with any questions.
