Unlike many cars that claim the ultimate unique status, this 1967 Coronet can be confirmed as the only one of its kind and it is now being auctioned off on the first app-based auction site.
Corroborating this 1967 Dodge Coronet R/Ts story is the fact that only three U.S. market Coronet R/T Convertibles were fitted with a HEMI in 1967 and only one of those was backed by a 727 Torqueflite aluminum cased transmission. Furthermore, the current owner knows this car’s full history well because it is not the first time the car was under the current owner’s care. This car also carries a stamp of approval from restoration expert Dave Wise, who has confirmed that the car has its all-original sheet metal, interior, factory correct engine bay, and undercarriage.
After spending nearly a decade on the World of Wheels circuit, the car spent time at the Atco Dragway. Throughout this time, the car wore a custom coat of green metal flake paint adorned with blazing red flames. Although the car does not seem to have been wrecked, a restoration was performed in 1983 which brought the car back to factory specs with a W-Code White finish, though the original floor pans still show signs of the previous green finish.
All one needs to do to know how well this car has been cared for over the years is look at the interior. Realizing that the patina is consistent with an unrestored interior, this rare Coronet is in very good condition. Everything is in working order and the 426-cid engine runs as the factory intended. Recent work includes a tune up, a new gas tank, and a new exhaust system. For more information on this car and how to register to place your bid click here.
