The Coronet was a full size car from Dodge and what started off in the mid-50's as the lowest trim line available eventually became the company's premier line and then eventually transferred to Dodge's mid-size entry. The top-of-the line model was the 500 and was only offered in a two-door or convertible.
The 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible offered here is powered by its 318 v8 paired with an automatic transmission. The car runs and shifts as it should and goes down the road smoothly. The car has been owned by the same owner since 2004. According to the owner the engine has been rebuilt although we do not have any receipts to support this. The car is not numbers matching and the engine came out of a different 1965 donor car they had. It is estimated by the consignor to have roughly 5,000 miles since the rebuild. The car spent much of its life in California and Texas. The car shows some age cosmetically but overall still presents well. The interior has a rips in the seats and some of the chrome shows pitting. Other highlights include power steering, owners manual, AM radio, bucket seats and center console. It rides P215/75 tires mounted on 14 steel wheels.
