1965 dodge coronet

We wanted something different for a 2014 power tour car and found this in a building last winter. We bought it with a 2nd owner title in the grand sons name and a story of the 22,000 miles being right. I went through this car end to end top to bottom for mechanicals and was very careful not to alter the car in any way. the dirt and grease that was on it still is on it the dead wasps in the windshield all have names and are my cruising buddies. this car has not been cleaned since the 90's and won't be cleaned as long as I own it. I wanted a car to run a 2500 mile trip in the tour that looked like it was just pulled out of a barn for the ride. you can Fly in and DRIVE this one home. I have a clean and clear Kentucky title in my name and the car is plated, insured and driven.

complete new brake system  including all 4 wheel cylinders, new brake shoes, all steel lines all rubber lines, new rear drums,( front drums were reused but in great shape).and the parking brake works. the car stops great for a 4 wheel drum brake car.

motor work professionally  done  fresh full gasket kit including rear main and head gaskets there are no leaks , all freeze plugs, new cap rotor wires plugs points and condenser,  has a professionally rebuilt stromberg ww 2 bbl carb, all the motor mounts, hoses and belts are new, it has a new 3 core all aluminum radiator with a 10" electric fan, the transmission is un touched except for a fluid change and new front input seal and it shifts out great.

it has new dual exhaust from the manifolds to back of transmission and some used turbo mufflers on it sounds great but quiet. exhaust ends at axle. you do get a little exhaust smell in the car it needs tail pipes.

new wheel bearings and seals in the front all 4 ball joints are moog replacements that don't squeak like the old ones did. the steering is tight and responsive with a new pressure line and fresh fluid.

it has 4 decent tires on it. all tires hold air and are road worthy but were used. it has a rim for a spare in the trunk with the jack kit and 4 hubcaps.

it has a new fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel filter,  sending unit and fuel line. new carb see above  

the lights turn signals all that fun stuff works on the outside of the car. the interior running lights work

everything is there on this car except one piece of trim that goes on the driver's side rocker. i do not think this car has ever been apart except 1 fender was replaced in the 70's form a minor fender bender . didn't touch the grill, bumper or inner support structure. it was very minor whatever caused a fender replacement

on to the stuff that needs attention

the inside turn signal indicators do not work all the time the gas gauge does not work all the time. the Speedo jumps around some and whines sometimes ( common issue is dirt and a bad ground).the radio works but the speaker is dry rotted horribly. it needs 4 shocks . the cooling fan needs a automatic relay or temp sensor switch wired in (right now fan has a plug in that you have to manually plug in under the hood) .  

the seat covers are shot seat frames are good. the carpet is great but faded some. the head liner is gone but all the bows etc are still there to put a new one in.

the body is in over all great shape. there is a soft spot in the passenger side floor pan whir the exhaust used to run close , the front fenders need lower rear patch panels ( there $50 a side). it has 2 soft spots in the trunk floor that a dollar bill will cover. the passenger side trunk drop down needs replaced ( parts available) there is a rust spot on the outside of the pass quarter that is about 2" long from a scratch rusting, there is a 6 ft long 1/8" deep crease in the pass quarter that is real minor, the driver's side quarter needs a little love on the trunk drop down the trunk lid is rotted along the back from mouse p*ss. the car was undercoated and structurally excellent.

come by drive it. we will put it on a lift so you can check under it. I will take it to a Indy mechanic of your choosing within 50 miles for a inspection at your cost. The car is for sale locally. I reserve the right to end this auction. this is a 3 day no reserve auction. this car will NOT be re listed with a lower starting bid. $500 deposit due in 48 hours. the remainder will be paid in cash or postal money order on pick up or before releasing the car. I will help load it for free. shipping is buyers responsibility but i will be flexible and help loading. I will do whatever title work you need to transfer the clean Ky title in your state. I  can hang on to the car for up to 30 days. I can deliver the car to you within 250 miles from 41472 for $1 a mile but I am driving it there.   if you have any questions give me a call 606-495-6219 Jason G.

a close family member is ill and i am happy to sacrifice this car to help them make it day to day

Watch this Dodge Viper get clawed to death

Tue, 07 Jan 2014

There's a scene in the James Bond movie, Casino Royale, where Daniel Craig's Agent 007 is captured by villain Le Chiffre, played by Mads Mikkelsen. Le Chiffre tortures Bond in a scene that is rather difficult to watch (especially for blokes) and impossible to describe on these digital pages (Google at your own risk). This video is the automotive equivalent of the Casino Royale torture scene.
It shows a Dodge Viper - a late, first-generation GTS judging by the center-exit exhausts - getting assaulted by a giant piece of heavy equipment. The large claw shows no mercy on the V10-powered sports car, rending its muscular curves into pieces and then running it over, just for good measure. It's a painful video to watch (and hear!), made worse because we don't know what the Viper did to deserve such a fate. About a third of the way through the video, the cameraman indicates that the man with the claw is a new operator from Chrysler, and it appears there may be some fire damage, but beyond that, we don't have much to go on.
Scroll down for the video but be warned, it isn't for the faint of heart.

Dodge whips covers off 2013 Blacktop series

Thu, 10 Jan 2013

Dodge introduced us to its Blacktop model lineup a year ago with the 2012 Charger and followed up with more recently with the 2013 Challenger and 2013 Avenger. Now the automaker will be applying this ominous-looking treatment to the Durango, Grand Caravan and Journey models for 2013 as well. These models will be unveiled next week at the Detroit Auto Show, but Dodge has released most of the details for these new products including pricing and availability.
If the Grand Caravan R/T (aka, the Man Van) wasn't aggressive enough for you or its $30,000 starting price was a little too pricey, then the 2013 Grand Caravan Blacktop could be the ticket. Starting with the SXT trim level (which stickers at $19,995), the Blacktop package costs only $595, and adds unique features such as blacked-out headlights, grille and fog lights bezels and an all-black interior. The van rides on black-accented, 17-inch aluminum wheels. The Grand Caravan Blacktop is only available in monochromatic paint schemes limited to Billet Silver, Brilliant Black, Maximum Steel, Redline Red and Stone White
Likewise, the 2013 Journey Blacktop is offered only on the SXT model (starting at $18,995) with all of the crossover's normal options such as four- and six-cylinder engines, five- or seven-passenger seating and front- or all-wheel drive. The Blacktop package adds $995 to the Journey SXT's price and features many of the same black accents as the Grand Caravan like the headlights, grille, door mirrors and lower fascia. Exterior colors are limited to Bright Silver, Bright Red, Brilliant Black, Brilliant Red Tri-Coat, White, Pearl White Tri-Coat and Storm Grey, and the package's 19-inch wheels come in Gloss Black. Inside, the Journey Blacktop comes standard with black cloth seats and Chrysler's 8.4-inch Uconnect touch screen, but black leather is also available as an option.

Roadkill builds crazy-cheap 1968 Dodge Charger rat rod using an old motorhome

Tue, 24 Dec 2013

Certain requests for description simply cannot be fulfilled, like if someone asked you to describe Picasso's Guernica or Gilliam's Brazil. There is only one appropriate answer to such entreaties, and that is: "You just gotta see it." That's where we are with the latest episode of Roadkill, wherein Messr's Freiburger and Finnegan dig out a 1968 Dodge Charger that Freiburger acquired in exchange for a set of cylinder heads, and intend to stuff it with the big-block motor from a long-bed, three-quarter ton Dodge pickup.
Only the pickup is too nice to tear apart, and the Charger needs a whole lot more lovin' - and parts - than initially expected. Enter, stage right, the Class A Dodge Pace Arrow motorhome with a 440 big-block purchased for $1,000, and a retired Plymouth Fury from a previous episode.
What ensues over the course of the 40-minute installment is more cuttin', yankin', leakin', stallin', hammerin' and smokin' action than you've seen in a long time, and some techniques that would have made even Cooter wonder, "I'm not sure if we should do that." By the end, though, the payoff is good enough to make you think about perusing AutoTrader for a '68 Charger just to see if maybe...
