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.

It was the Ford Mustang that kicked off the retro-styled muscle car renaissance back in 2005, but it was the Dodge Challenger that served as the movement's poster child, with its unabashedly retro looks. Over the years, though, as the Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro were freshened and upgraded, the look of the big Dodge has remained largely consistent since its 2008 debut. For 2015, the Challenger has received a big freshening, boasting strongly revised front and rear ends and (finally, finally, finally) a redesigned interior.

Let's talk about that new cabin first. It's basically been plucked directly from the redesigned Charger, and boasts the same seven-inch IP display. The center stack's miserable, last-gen display has been replaced by an expansive, 8.4-inch UConnect system. Material quality should see a solid boost with the new cabin, as well.
The exterior, meanwhile, sees a revised front fascia with LED halo lights, as well as new grille inserts. A functional shaker hood scoop is a must-have extra on the V8 models, while the back of the car is highlighted by a new set of LED taillights that don't use the "Racetrack" design of Dodge's other models.
In a show of generosity in mid-August, Detroit's business leaders donated $8 million to the Police Department and Fire Department in order to buy 100 new police vehicles and 23 EMS ambulances. But now officers have discovered - and complained - that the police vehicles have glaring safety issues, Deadline Detroit reports. It is not made clear what models of the fleet vehicles - which include police versions of the Ford Taurus, the Chevrolet Caprice and the Dodge Charger - are affected by the safety issues.

Officers reportedly have complained that the Plexiglass partition separating front-seat officers and back-seat prisoners is easily breached, and that the front passenger seat is installed too close to the dashboard. Prisoners who manage to writhe out of their handcuffs can bend the Plexiglass and reach into the cockpit, and sitting too close to the dashboard can render airbags more dangerous and make officers more vulnerable to injury in a crash.
Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association, received the complaints and reportedly said the vehicles would get safety updates addressing the issues. But Deadline Detroit reports that it checked some of the offending police cars and, as of the last few days, they hadn't been updated.
Chrysler's Jefferson North Assembly Plant opened in 1992 for production of the first Jeep Grand Cherokee, but in the subsequent years, the Detroit plant has gone on to produce some of the company's biggest SUVs including the Jeep Commander and Dodge Durango. Earlier this week, the plant produced its five-millionth SUV, which, fittingly, was a Grand Cherokee.
Celebrating the plant's five-millionth unit, the silver 2014 Grand Cherokee was promptly donated to the USO. In addition to this milestone SUV, Chrysler also had a near-perfect 1993-95 ZJ Grand Cherokee on hand for the photo op. Scroll down for the Chrysler press release as well as a video showing some of the speeches from the celebration.
