This 1967 Dodge Coronet 4dr Hardtop is a SUPER-CLEAN project that should only last about 45 days! 2 0f these cars with 426 Hemi's were actually sold to the government. The previous owner purchased expensive upgrades for the car including every clip, nut, & bolt and never got a chance to finish the project. I am going to assemble the car over the next 2 months and sell it to the new owner, whom ever that might be.
The new owner will have the chance to control the final price and quality of the finished piece by interacting with me as I move forward. I will be posting pictures daily. Currently, this car was delivered without the front clip installed. My 1rst order of business is to install the front clip and make the car run and drive. The engine is new with Eldebrock Performer heads and a bunch of other goodies,.
