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.

Are you hesitant to pull the trigger on a brand new Dodge Avenger in hopes that a new one will be coming? Well, don't hold your breath. According to The Detroit News, Chrysler will be extending production of the current Avenger sedan through the end of 2015.
Sun, 17 Mar 2013 21:20:00 EST
Originally, we heard that the company would kill the Avenger to better focus its midsize sedan efforts on the Chrysler 200 replacement. But then new reports stated there would indeed be an Avenger successor, and that we could see it as early as next January. This Detroit News report cites supplier sources confirming the extension of Avenger production, though Chrysler has not released an official statement on the matter.
These same suppliers say that the current Jeep Wrangler will live on through mid-2018 - that's right, another five years. The Detroit News reports that a replacement for the iconic, go-anywhere Jeep was due in mid-2016.
Chrysler has issued a recall for the V6 version of the 2013 Dodge Challenger (as pictured above in 2012MY) over the possibility of a wiring harness that could short circuit and lead to a fire. Owners of these V6 Challengers built from November 2012 through January 2013 are being urged to contact dealers immediately and, in the meantime, not to drive their cars or park in or near any buildings.

Chrysler estimates around 2,500 potentially affected Challengers are in owners' hands, while another 1,900 are still sitting on dealer lots. The total number of recalled vehicles is 4,459.
So far, Chrysler says that seven fires have been reported - none resulting in injuries. The company is instructing vehicle owners to contact their dealer to find out if their vehicle is included in the recall, but owners can also find the build date information of their vehicle by checking the label in the driver's door jamb.

It became the flame that started the fire of belief in the next life of Chrysler.
I just sold a car. Nothing new. Millions do it every day. But my car was a 1995 Dodge Viper, so maybe it was a bit more unique since just 12,000 were built. And like others selling a car that's been a part of the family for close to 20 years, this was a confluence of emotions for me. I was sad to see it go, but happy to have the cash and one less big, shiny, under-utilized object in my life.
