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.

Chrysler is recalling 780,000 of its Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans from the 2010 to 2014 model years due to the possibility of circuits overheating, which can lead to a fire. Of the 780,000 total vans being recalled, Chrysler estimates that 644,850 are in the US, 106,980 are in Canada, 8,009 are in Mexico, and 20,638 are in other markets. All of the affected vehicles were built between August 25, 2010 and October 31, 2013.

Chrysler's engineers discovered that beverage spills or exposure to moisture (from rain, snow, car washes, and the like) were linked to circuits shorting in the window switch assembly. Short circuits can overheat, and thus, cause a fire.
Chrysler will contact owners and let them know when they may schedule service, at which point, the window switches will be replaced. In the interim, the automaker says that owners may visit their dealers after May 14 to have the switches disconnected.
I can pinpoint the exact moment when I fell in love with this car. It was starting down a nearly straight entrance ramp at 15 miles per hour when I buried the throttle. In a moment, I was thrown back into my seat as the big SRT8's engine came to life with commensurate sound, fury and force, bringing me up to 75 mph in what felt like two blinks of an eye. This thing feels so much quicker than its 470 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque would lead you to believe. And mashing the right pedal never, ever gets old.

But beyond sheer speed, I found a whole lot to like about the Charger SRT8 during my week with the Pitch Black test car here in Detroit. And while the whole Super Bee kit isn't really my style, it's really easy to overlook those badges for a package that offers so much for so little.
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.
