Classic Car Overview
Big block Dodges are always in-demand. Thats why this 1969 Dodge Coronet 500 built to be a mean R/T tribute is so alluring. With its big 440 V8, distinctive red interior, and street-eating presence, its what Mopar muscle is all about. The Chrysler B-bodies of this era seemed to follow a variation on Theodore Roosevelts adage of, Speak softly but carry a big stick. You see it immediately in the way the subtle white paint hides the bodys wide and dominating presence. But it doesnt use big ornamentation to show its aggression. Instead, it carries a simple wide chrome bumper that looks like the huge grin of a man who knows he can beat up every last person in the joint, but hed rather just enjoy his beverage... for now. But a car this cool cant hide all of its street-eating nature. Thats why you have the dual hood scoops, hood pins, rear stripe package, and an R/T badge in a shade of red that looks ready to draw blood. And no muscle car appearance is complete without iconic Mag wheels. That hint of aggressive red in the R/T badge is also a preview of the interior. There have been nice investments to keep this one feeling crisp and comfortable, and theres also an extra hint of uniqueness. This one has a very cool atmosphere that reminds of a coupe that would have been upgraded back in the day. For example, you get the premium Coronet 500 pieces like the low-back bucket seats and wood-like appearance on the dash and door panels. Plus, there are cool old-school touches like the AM radio and separate 8-track that are still on display. But the upgrades like the B&M shifter, wood-rimmed three-spoke sports steering wheel, auxiliary gauges, and large tach mounted next to the original instruments are all the kinds of upgrades that feel like the Dodge visited the hot rod shop. Open the hood, and the bright orange V8 radiates from the clean white engine bay. And while this looks quite factory-like, youll also notice nice upgrades like the Mickey Thompson valve covers and an electric fan on the radiator. The 440 Magnum V8 is one of the best powerhouses of its day, and this is further enhanced by an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and long-tube headers. Combine that last feature with the H-pipe dual exhaust, and youve got an unmistakably mean sounding machine from the moment the big V8 fires up. But more than just providing some of the best muscle car power for the streets, the Magnum was known to be one of the easiest to live with, too. This is backed up by great driving features such as the Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes. This Coronet is powerful, distinct, and all-out mean. Its the Mopar muscle package youve been waiting for, so dont let it slip away. Call today!!!
