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.

For nine years, Diesel Power magazine has run the Diesel Power Challenge, this year's grindfest being "a week-long torture test that features seven events, nine trucks, 8,000 horsepower, and nearly 15,000 pound-feet of torque." The road to being crowned "the most powerful truck" starts with a dyno run, and then continues through the completion of a CDL-style obstacle course, an eighth-of-a-mile drag race while towing a 10,000-pound trailer, a quarter-mile drag race without a trailer, a fuel economy test in the mountains and finally a sled-pulling test through a 300-foot-long packed-mud pit.

What kind of trucks get into such a fight? Last year's winner, for instance - who upgraded his truck this year to prove he didn't "luck into the win" - drives a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with a 6.4-liter Power Stroke V8 upgraded with a custom intake, Elite Diesel triple turbos and a two-stage nitrous system. Another competitor has a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 powered by a 5.9-liter Cummins inline-six, upgraded with Garrett turbos, dual-stage nitrous, a seven-inch exhaust stack and twin fans built into the bed to cool the Sun Coast Omega transmission. The numbers on that truck: 1,255 horsepower, and 2,063 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Naturally, as the image above might suggest, things don't always end well.
You'll find all five videos covering this years challenge below. A scene in the dyno video sums it all up perfectly: a competitor leaves his nitrous on too long and the crew is treated to some ominous poppings, he leans out the window, throws both hands up and shouts, "Amer'ca!"
With more than 200,000 units across six separate recalls and almost all of its brands, it appears that Chrysler has officially jumped headfirst into the recall pool this month. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued three official recalls for the automaker, and The Detroit News is reporting that the automaker itself has announced three more.

The biggest of the recalls applies to about 120,000 Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger and Chrysler 300 models for 2011 and 2012 due to faulty wiring harnesses for the seat-mounted side airbags, which could lead to these airbags not deploying in the event of a crash. A little more than 60,000 two-wheel-drive versions of the 2007-2008 Dodge Nitro and 2008 Jeep Liberty SUVs are being recalled due to a heat shield that could cause the driveshaft to break, which if that isn't bad on its own, could then hit underneath where the airbag sensor is mounted, causing the airbags to deploy. Wrapping up NHTSA's recall notices, about 20,000 Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass models for 2012 are also being recalled due to a problem with the fuel tank transfer tube that could lead to the vehicle stalling. The LX car recall campaign is going into effect this month, while the other two will start next month - all three notices are posted below.
In addition to the official NHTSA recalls, The Detroit News is also reporting that Chrysler is recalling more than 16,000 Ram trucks and a small number of Dodge Dart sedans. Around 6,500 2013 Ram 1500 trucks will be recalled due to an improper adjustment of the parking brake cable from the factory, while 7,000 Cummins-powered 2013 Ram Heavy Duty trucks are being recalled due to an engine cover that does not have as much heat resistance as it is supposed to. Finally, a total of 46 Dodge Dart sedans are being recalled due to a problem with the brake calipers and/or parking brake.
Chrysler is adding a third shift at its Warren Truck plant to meet demand for the new 2013 Ram pickup. And with tight supplies of its Pentastar V6, the company is also boosting output at its Mack Engine plant.
The expansions will add 1,250 jobs and are part of a $238 million investment by Chrysler in the Detroit area. Warren's third shift will begin work sometime in the spring, a Chrysler rep told Automotive News. Mack's increased Pentastar production a could include both 3.6 and 3.2-liter engines.
The company says it also plans to invest $40 million in its Trenton Engine plant to allow for production of a 3.2-liter V6 as well as the Tigershark inline-four for the upcoming Jeep Liberty replacement.
