If you insist on a muscle car with a pedigree this 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T is an awesome choice. Sporting its matching-numbers 440 cubic inch V8 ice cold A/C and an awesome Mopar look it gets everything right. Add in some important documentation and you have a high-grade Mopar with a bulletproof background. Dodge never gave this awesome shade of blue an exciting name but B5 Blue is indeed this Coronet's real color. It's also a real R/T and the hardware it packs puts it near the top of the pecking order when it comes to fast vintage muscle. Befitting a car with an awesome set of stats like this it has a show-quality paint job in the original B5 Blue that's so fresh it looks like if you touched it your finger would get wet. In the finest Mopar tradition it's both purposeful and entertaining to look at from the subtly sculpted bodywork (laser straight) to the domed hood that suggests serious blasting powder underneath to the white bumblebee stripe around the tail there's just nothing else like it on the road. It comes by the R/T emblems honestly as it's a legitimate R/T model and the finish work is beyond anything they were building at Chrysler Corporation in the '60s. You're going to love the look. It's also got beautiful chrome bumpers a correct grille up front and a beautifully fitted white vinyl top that is not only in excellent shape but adds some contrast that's just period-perfect. Buckets and a console are a welcome sight in anything wearing the R/T insignia and the interior is as nicely finished as the bodywork. Correct reproduction seat covers fit extremely well and have the government-mandated headrests that were standard equipment in 1969. New carpets door panels and a fresh dash pad all keep it looking showroom fresh and the wood appliques on the dash console and door panels have been replaced. Factory gauges include a somewhat rare factory tachometer and the original Music Master AM radio is still in the center of the dash although an upgrade would make this the ideal cruiser. Someone has installed an aftermarket A/C system but the vents are so discreetly placed that most purists won't notice and it makes a big difference in cruising comfort on warm days. Embossed rubber floor mats give it a heavy-duty look and the trunk is correctly finished with a full-sized spare and a plaid mat. That's the original numbers-matching 440 cubic inch V8 living under the hood and during the restoration it was rebuilt to stock specs inside. Externally it looks OEM but there's a Holley carburetor living under the factory air cleaner and an upgraded intake manifold hides in plain sight. Other details like the wiring ignition system and even the red-cap battery contribute to a factory-correct presentation that's worthy of its pedigree. Power steering and power front disc brakes are very welcome on this heavy cruiser and the stock-style exhaust system runs Flowmaster mufflers for a bit more attitude. A TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission channels power aft to a Dana 60 rear end with 4.10 gears and a Sure Grip inside suggesting that this Coronet was built for combat. Floors are original but quite clean so you won't worry about driving your high-grade Mopar now and again. Industrial-strength painted steel wheels and dog dish hubcaps are the perfect rolling stock and they're now wrapped with oversized 215/70/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials. With a factory build sheet build receipts and maintenance records this is a matching-numbers Mopar you can buy with confidence. Given that level of authenticity and the quality of the restoration the price sure looks like a bargain to us. Call today!
