1969 Dodge Coronet

Up for sale is a 1969 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible,  , cloned to resemble an R/T. It is not a true R/T Coronet Convertible. but less than 2000, 69 Coronet Convertibles made, It has new power steerin, new brakes with front disk with stainless steel lines . left the factory as a 318 car. PA title exempts the milage. All of the bodywork, trim, chrome and interior work, were as you see it, when I bought it. All of the glass appears origional and in decent shape. The interior appears mostly origional and decent also. The top doesn't seem too old and look OK. the zipper needs replaced, This car is over 50 years old so don't expect the craftsmanship of a new Challenger. The car has a couple hundred miles on it since my updates were done.when this sits over winter (trickle) of anti-freeze runs down the exhaust pipe on the left side of the car. through a exhaust bolt but stops after a drive or two until next winter . All indicators like engine temperature and oil pressure were great, and there was no smoke from the exhaust, miss, It ran and idled beautifully! I did pull the valve cover and everything looked perfect. The heads were checked before the new valves were installed and there were supposedly fine. Now for the good stuff. Updates I did to the car were:Engine - Replaced the 383 with a 1971 440 from a former Virginia State Police car. Just a few of the engine rebuilding highlights included: boring it .030 over and fitting it with new 10:1 pistons, balancing it, giving it a mild hydraulic cam, reworking the heads with stainless valves, new fuel and oil pumps, and topping it off with an Eldebrock high rise 2-4s manifold with a pair of 550 CFM Eldebrock performer carburetors. Other stuff too numerious to mention.Transmission - Replaced the stock 727 transmission with a TCI 727 Streetfighter transmission and a B&M torque converter.Rear - Removed the stock 8 1/4 rear and replaced it with an 8 3/4 rear with 11" drums and a rebuilt center section with 4.10 gears and positraction. Replaced the stock leaf springs with a pair of Hemi leaf springs.Miscellaneous - Installed a pair of factory HP exhaust manifolds and a "TTI" 2 1/2 inch exhaust systems with turbo mufflers and stainless tips. Removed small wheels and tires and replaced them with wider, slotted style police wheels with dog dish hubcaps, trim rings, and 4 brand new Cooper white lettered tires. Installed KYB gas shocks all around. replaced the hood with an aftermarket fiberglass lift-off hood. Converted the ignition to a single wire distributor. Installed a non-rally type dash tachometer. Replaced both of the convertible top hydraulic lines and 1 lift cylinder.1 pair of ceramic coated big-block Hooker Competition Plus headers, never used.MORE NEW STUFF
