Custom Built Altered Wheelbase A/FX Coronet 511ci HEMI V8 Automatic Dana 60 ///
Rolling rough and tumble Match Basher mojo into a 21st century road warrior, this magazine-featured Dodge spent most of its life as a slant-6 Coronet Deluxe sedan. That is, until vintage Funny Car enthusiast Richard LeFebvre located it in early 2004 and kicked off an intense build that, with the help of an altered wheelbase, shaved a pair of the car's doors. That new 2-door profile capped steel doors, a steel trunk and a steel hood with composite fenders and composite bumpers. For the next 12 years, this MoPar roared along as a deliberately faithful tribute to moody racers of a bygone era. And in 2017, a professional freshening, conducted by Mike Mancini's American Muscle Car Restorations, Inc., totally refined the car into a clean, street-friendly marvel! Gaze into this classic's engine bay and you'll find 511 cubic inches of stroked Hemi big block that turns 93-octane pump gas into stout 10.5 to 1 compression and 488 rear-wheel horsepower. Bottom-side, a professionally massaged chassis rides a professionally massaged suspension. The Hemi twists power through a 1965 Chrysler A727 3-speed that follows a 2,500RPM B&M stall with a reverse manual valve body. That transmission twists torque through a tough Dana 60 axle, which spins a Sure Grip differential around buff, 4.10 gears. And everything rolls on timeless American Racing Torq Thrusts. The car's sparse but tasteful cockpit kicks off with retrofitted A100 buckets that are dressed in Dodge A990 vinyl. A fiberglass dash founds factory telemetry next to a Holley EFI screen, small accessory gauges and a large MQQN Equipment tach. And a “CORONET” branded steering wheel laps a factory shifter. Lust worthy, fast and capable of cruising Main Street, this awesome Dodge is an excellent combination of classic hot rod looks and incredible straight-line performance.
