66 Dodge Coronet 500
I purchase this car approximately a 2 years ago, and i have no time to complete it. When I picked up the car it was sitting in a outside storage place, covered but outside, this car needs floor pans up front, and a trunk pan. Also the driver side frame rail has about 4-5 inches of rust that I would say needs repair. The body otherwise is ok, not perfect but, at this price it is a classic that can be done if you choose to do so. I have all the parts to put it all together. A lot of parts would need to be replaced if you want to make it a show car, but my plans were to make it a prostreet and race it on the weekends at a local track. The car was running when I purchased it and the motor looks like it just needs to be driven. It needs brakes, it needs to be gone thru to make it safe and driveable. It sounds like a mild cam someone put in. I have the original radiator, but I removed it, cause I was preparing to put another big block in it. All the tires are new and balanced. The interior needs to be redone, the dash is good the gauges are all in good shape, the seats are being reupholstered and will be done by the end of april, they will be the original white, with the 66 style trim, the door panels I did not remove yet..The original automatic shifter is there in good shape but no console, I was going to put a Hurst shifter in place of it anyway. I also have the mini tub kit, the leaf springs can be moved in for a fatter tire in the rear. Currently I removed the intake manifold and had it blasted and cleaned, its an orig Chrys Edelbrock intake that works great on the 400ci motor. I dont have the history on the motor but it sounds great. I was going to put this motor aside and use my 440ci i have.
please check out the pics
this car is in need of resto so please contact only if youre serious....
A new battery and several new parts are being included with the car. All 4 tires were just put on a few weeks ago. I also have a new windage tray, the one in the pic is trashed.
I have a video of the car running, but you may not be able to view it from your computer or phone.If you come to see the car you can watch and hear the video on my phone, its too large to attach to a text.

Watchers of the auto industry will notice a theme among the formerly bankrupted American automakers, General Motors and Chrysler. There are the post-bankruptcy vehicles, and the pre-bankruptcy vehicles. The former, in the case of Chrysler, include the Jeep Grand Cherokee, as well as the 200 and 300. For GM, there's the Cadillac ATS, Chevrolet Impala and Buick Encore, among others. These vehicles have the freshest styling, with sharp exteriors and well-crafted interiors, as well as advanced powertrains and well-sorted chassis.

As for the pre-bankruptcy vehicles, they tend to be easy to spot. Most suffer from inferior driving dynamics, cheaper interiors, poorer fuel economy and often homely looks (we know, there were some decent cars before the bankruptcy, but they were pretty heavily outweighed by the bad ones). Think late, last-generation Chevrolet Impala or Chrysler 200. Increasingly, though, we're seeing vehicles that split the balance between pre- and post-bankruptcy. Vehicles like the Dodge Journey.
The Journey debuted in 2007 as a 2008 model year vehicle, meaning it should fall into the latter category. But heavily breathed upon in 2011, it now enjoys a new, 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, a big, critically acclaimed touchscreen display and in the case of today's tester, a new-for-2014 Crossroad spec.
In Autoblog's recent First Drive of the 2015 Challenger SRT with the 707-horsepower Hellcat V8 we found its engine to be as brutally powerful as the numbers would suggest, even if it wasn't the best handler. However, the muscle-car-styling just isn't right for some buyers that need four doors and proper rear seats to haul around the family. It appears that Dodge has their backs, though, because the Hellcat is very likely on its way into the Charger in the near future. Imagine the looks on your passengers' faces when you stomp down on the throttle.

According to Road and Track, when Dodge submitted the Hellcat for engine power certification to the Society of Automotive Engineers, the company included the Charger on the paperwork. That showed that the automaker wanted the engine checked out for the sedan, too. R&T reckons the 707-hp Charger would hit the road about a year from now, clearing the Challenger for a year of exclusivity with the powerplant.
When the Charger SRT Hellcat does hit the road, it may carry a very special accolade. Assuming nothing beats it in the meantime, it might be the world's highest horsepower production sedan. Think on that for a second. Even a Mercedes S65 AMG only has 621 horsepower, though a good bit more torque at 738 pound-feet to the Dodge's 650 lb-ft. So while the beastly engine is getting put into other models, where else would you like to see it? The Ram? Grand Cherokee? Let us know in Comments.
A raft of important production models from the last hundred years were available for me to either drive or ride in.
Dodge is 100 years old this year. So, as happened on Ford's recent centennial, the 50-year birthday of the Porsche 911, and others, the company has an excuse to trot out the highlights of its history next to its upcoming model lineup, and declare that "these are the fruits of the Dodge Boys' tree whose roots have grown strong." Or something like that. Never so hampered by marketing skepticism that I'll pass up the opportunity to burn someone else's rubber, I was happy to drive out to Meadow Brook Hall in Rochester Hills, MI - former grand estate of the Dodge family - to hear the spiel.
