1970 Dodge Coronet R/t Hardtop 2-door 7.2l on 2040-cars
Nineveh, Indiana, United States
You are bidding on a 2 owner 1970 Coronet R/T ( yep, a real one). Records I looked up show just a little over 2,100 made in 1970, a one year only body style. I have had this car since 1976 when I bought it from the original owner. Currently in the car is a big block 400 ( I have the matching 440 magnum motor for the car), mild comp cams camshaft (.545 hyd), 516 heads with 906 size valves, (I have the factory 906 heads) 8 3/4 with 4:10 gears and spool, 742 case( I have the factory 489 case posi w/3:55 gears). Has moser axles ( I have the factory axles with the adjusters), MSD 6AL ignition system ( I have the factory points distrib), aluminum radiator( I have the factory one), aluminum water pump housing( i have origanal) 727 tranny with full reverse valve body. The stock shifter has a different plate so that it works with the reverse pattern( have factory plate). Has 3,000 stall converter. Hooker headers with Flow Masters 3 inch exhaust ( I have 2 sets of the factory exhaust manifolds) edelbrock intake with 650 dbl pump holley ( I have the factory intake and carb), I think it's about a 12 gallon fuel cell in trunkl( I have the factory gas tank), duel batteries, holley blue pump. I have raced this car in sportsman class ( runs 13:30's to 13:50's depending on weather) past two years. Car is uncut, no roll bars or frame ties, wanted to keep it as close to factory as possible.All lights, wipers and horn works. I have the factory key set that came with the car. The entire front end, tie rods, ball joints, A arm bushings, ect are PST kit. After buying the car in '76, it was my daily driver. After getting married in '81, didn't drive it much, In the late 80's, I took the factory motor out, (it was still running fine), and disassembled it, to put a different motor in it to go racing, I didn't want to blow up the factory one. In early 90's, I pulled that motor and parked the car inside where it remained until the fall of 2012 when I got it back out and ready for racing again. I have the factory build sheet and the fender tag is still in place (see picture). Along with the car, if you win the bid, there are years of carburetors, tranny coolers, pulleys, kick down linkage, fans, aluminum fuel lines, 2 Pistol grip shifters ( one for B body and one for E body ) another fuel cell, aluminum bug catcher, stainless trim wheel rings different sizes, another 440 short block with steel crank, stock tranny valve body, several pairs of big block heads (452 and 516), intakes, a set of 2.14 intake valves, plus more, This will be a Package deal, no separate sales, I don't need all the parts if I sell the car and need the parts if I don't sell the car. There is a reasonable reserve on it and to give some who might really be interested an idea, last Sept, I was offered $17,000.00 for just the car because as the guy said, he has not seen an untouched car of this year with such a great frame, floor and trunk. It will need new rear quarters as the picture shows, unless you just want to fill them in. This car was originally light green and in late 70's, I had it changed to black ( was a light sanding and painted over original paint). There are places on the car where you can see the original color if you were wanting to paint it back to that color. It also is a factory vinyl top car but that was in bad shape so I took it off, sanded the roof and it is in black primer now. Selling because I have came to the wakening that I am most likely never going to strip this car down and do it back up ( no time, space or the money). I have 2 choices then (1) just keep it, race it till I wreck it or it does rust away (2) sell it to someone who will strip it down and restore it back to it's former factory glory. So, thought would try the second option first. The Mopar Nationals are coming up, so, if you wanted, you could buy this package deal, set yourself up a swap meet booth there to recover a considerable amount of the price and put it back into the car, just a thought. This is AS IS/ WHERE IS purchase, ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY IMPLIED OR GIVEN. NO OVER SEAS SALES. CASH ONLY UPON PICK UP. NO DOWN PAYMENTS THEN REST LATER ( bad experience with that) You must at least meet the reserve price to win the car, otherwise, no sale.( thought would add that because a friend had someone that was highest bidder but didn't meet reserve threaten to sue him because he was high bidder and thought that alone entitled him to the item, even though he did not reach the reserve) It is for sale locally also so the bidding maybe cut short. Any questions, firstname.lastname@example.org.

When Chrysler rolled out the first-generation 200 to replace the Sebring range in 2010, it included replacements for both the sedan and the convertible. The Sebring Coupe, however, was left out of the mix. And now that the second-generation Chrysler 200 is descending upon us, Auburn Hills is paring things down even further. But this time, it's the convertible that reportedly isn't making the cut. Shame, too, since the rendering above shows what could have been quite an attractive droptop.
As our compatriots at Edmunds point out, sales of the convertible model accounted for less than five percent of overall Chrysler 200 sales, and at those numbers, the considerable cost of engineering a new drop-top couldn't be justified. With the Toyota Camry Solara and Volkswagen Eos also gone from the market (well, the VW isn't gone quite yet), the discontinuation of the Chrysler 200 Convertible leaves the affordable convertible segment largely to the sportier likes of the Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro and smaller European offerings like the Mini Cooper and VW Beetle.
The Chrysler 200 Convertible isn't the only derivative being left behind with the new model: so too is the Dodge Avenger. That will leave a glaring hole in the Dodge lineup, with nothing to bridge the gap between the compact Dart and the larger Charger. Whether the Dodge brand has any plans to replace the Avenger with another model, not to be based on the 200, remains to be seen.
What do the Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Ram 1500 all have in common? Yes, they're all Chrysler products, and two of them are based on the same platform. And we're sure you could find more similarities between them all, but the common trait we're looking at here is that, while they all come standard in rear-drive form, they're also available with all-wheel drive. And it's the transmission in those models that's the subject of the latest recall notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The output shaft on the eight-speed automatic transmission supplied by ZF to Chrysler for the AWD versions of the 300, Charger and Ram 1500 is apparently prone to fracture. That in the end could leave the vehicle without power and could, according to the NHTSA investigation, increase the chance of a crash. The vehicle could also roll away if even if left in Park without the handbrake applied.
That's why Chrysler is calling in 4,194 examples of those three models from the 2013 model year. Dealers will be responsible for inspecting the transmissions and, where necessary, replace the entire unit. See the full recall notice below for all the details.
When people ask us what car we would recommend for them, it's usually not easy to answer. To make a useful recommendation we must consider which of the numerous vehicle segments fits their needs best, and then choose one of the many vehicles offered in each segment. For some people, new cars don't meet their expectations of value, because they lose so much of it the moment they are purchased and driven off the dealer lot. For them, there's always the used-car market, where great deals can be found, but cars' histories of reliability and maintenance records - and perhaps that Certified Pre-Owned warranty - become ever-important factors playing into purchase choice.
To help out, Edmunds has done us the favor of assembling a list of the best used vehicles money can buy, covering model years 2006-2011, according to what it considers the most important criteria when shopping for used autos: reliability, safety, value and availability. That means unreliable, unsafe, super-expensive or limited-edition models don't appear on the list, but instead cars from each segment that are more likely to satisfy the general population.
There are some real goodies on the list, including but not limited to vehicles such as the capable Honda Fit, the cultish Honda Accord coupe (which can be had with a 240-horsepower V6 and a six-speed manual transmission some years), and the powerful Chevrolet Corvette. While Edmunds' choice of the Volvo C70 for best used convertible baffled us at first (not that it's a bad car), it redeemed itself by stating that the Mazda MX-5 still is an unofficial top choice if you don't require more than two seats.
