Convertible HEMI Restomod
Take an ultra-rare Mopar droptop, and then add in a modern fuel-injected Hemi heart, upgraded suspension, six-speed stick-shift, and a terrific A/C interior. All of this and more makes this 1970 Dodge Coronet Convertible HEMI Restomod such an amazing machine that can come home with you today.
The '70 Coronet is a very in-demand style. It has a cool dual chrome bumper setup that surround the headlights and give this intermediates the wide appearance of a full-size. It's one of the most aggressive designs of the muscle car era, and it was only offered for this year. Despite this appeal, there were less than 1,000 Coronet 500 convertibles produced in 1970, so it ensures this is always going to be desirable. Its history is why this example was treated with such respect and over $30k was invested to make it such a great restomod. It means you get a modern metallic blue that has a terrific luster in the sunlight – exactly what you want on a sunshine-friendly droptop. And this one really drives home the sporty performance with the right R/T upgrades like the white bumble bee stripe across the trunk, wide rear spoiler, and side scoops that accurate the bulge in the rear fenders. Plus, those modern American racing polished alloys (17/18-inches front/rear) not only add to the performance appearance, but also hint at the modern upgrades beneath the skin.
If you like the way the white convertible roof looks against the exterior, then with a flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive white interior. There's a wide dash and plenty of room for family and friends – once again reminding you that this classic intermediate Mopar really does have big full-size appeal. Even when you're just enjoying this one solo, the high-back bucket seat and center console offer an individual level of comfort. There has been a careful eye inside to keep this looking era correct with only the right subtle upgrades. For example, the radio is a modern AM/FM digital tuner, but it still has a retro knob-style appearance. The upgraded three-spoke sports steering wheel has a wood rim to coordinate with the rest of the trim inside. Plus, modern R134a air conditioning means you get to stay cool and enjoy top-down motoring long into the summer season.
While there have only been subtle hints of modern upgrades on the exterior and interior, the engine bay screams restomod. The fuel-injected 6.1-liter HEMI V8 is directly related to the ones you find under the hood of new SRT Challengers and Chargers today. This has been upgraded further as it inhales deeper with a cold air intake, and it exhales from TTI headers feeding the Flowmaster H-pipe dual exhaust. The full package is estimated at 450 horsepower, and you have complete control over it thanks to a Tremec Magnum T56 six-speed manual transmission. It's a strong setup with a special trans housing from Silver Sport Transmission, 3.91 limited-slip rear end from Mancini Racing, and 489 nodular case. The suspension includes a full tubular front end upgrade from Gerst Fabrication. Plus, rack & pinion power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires compete an outstanding total restomod driving package.
Complete with build receipts and the original bill of sale, this is exceptionally rare Mopar that's built to show off and enjoy every day. Something this unique can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so don't miss you chance. Call now!
