This 1967 Plymouth GTX 440 as posted on Bring A Trailer is said to be a very solid car with a rebuilt, numbers matching 440, an older repaint and some upgrades to the wheels, driveshaft, final drive gearing and ignition but they had the presence of mind to keep the original parts. Check it out on eBay! Priced at $27,500. Is it a deal? More pics after the jump!
In an article entitled Muscle Cars You Should Know, Street Legal TV is featuring the Dodge Coronet. They outline the history of the Coronet line with a focus on those powered by the mighty 426. Gotta love a Hemi-powered B-body! See the story at Street Legal TV. More pics after the jump!
I know nothing about this car. Just saw it posted on Facebook by Mopars United. Looks killer with the Keystones!
Now this is a very cool story. Check it out:
So back in 69 my dad bought this car used in saskatchewan. He and the car came to alberta and he drove it all year round until 1977/78 after a couple of (in todays terms) a minor rear end accident. It was written off by the insurance company due to the cost to fix being more than the car was worth (imagine that). My dad sent it to be fixed at some point but the guy doing the work never finished so it came home and driven some more. It got rear ended again this time with less damage but it was parked and stayed inside except for about 3 hours in 1993 when we pushed it out to clean the garage. Its a 99% complete numbers matching car save for some of the trim pieces at the rear.
I bugged my dad for this car from the time i was 12 years old but he was going to fix it up (uh huh). I finally bought the damn thing off him in 2009 and brought it home into my garage, got it running with new plugs a new battery and a quart of oil down the carb. Got it going on 7 cylinders but she was an oil burner and wasn’t coming back to life without some $$. So at this point the incorrectly painted hemi orange 550 hp big block is now going in. This is the single most expensive engine build Ive ever done at $13000. I could have had the car painted or bought a hemi for that but thats another story.
Plans from here are some aftermarket wheels for the street and another set of original wheels for shows but all original paint color, decalling and no repro parts if possible. Still hunting for a good tail light panel. The original engine, which is not the hemi orange one, will be built to factory externally with some internal mods for strength, durability and future upgrades.

It’s the wrong year, has bondo, a 360 and Vectors with too many spokes but hey, it’s orange with the 01 and confederate flag–“close enough” as the seller says–and it’s no reserve so it will sell! Currently north of $15,000–how high will it go? Check out the full auction with more pics and details on eBay!
Update: looks like the auction got shut down early–after more than 40 bids? Wonder what gives?
This 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T was parked in the woods in Ohio in 1974 and hasn’t moved since! GuruRanger posted the full story on Moparts:
About 15 years ago, I got information on a ’67 R/T that had been parked behind a barn since around 1974. I followed up and found the car, but the woman who lived in the farmhouse said it was her brother’s car, he lived in Florida, and she wouldn’t give me any information on how to contact him. Instead, she wanted to be the middleman and gave me the runaround. This week, I was in the area and noticed that the house had been torn down and no one had been on the property in quite a while. I checked the woods behind the barn and the R/T was still there! Complete, it’s a 1967 Coronet R/T, dark green with a black vinyl top and white bucket seat inteior with console automatic. The engine is still there, air cleaner to oil pan and it still has it’s Certicard. The car even has its grille centerpiece and factory mag-style hubcaps. I wonder who owns the property now.
Think it will ever get saved? More pics after the jump!
The guys over at Hot Rod Magazine are working with Intellichoice’s Real MPG powered by Chevron to get baseline MPG numbers for their 1968 Plymouth GTX. It’s a fairly stock 4-speed car (though it’s running a 800cfm Edelbrock Thunder AVS carb). Just 41,000 miles on the odometer. Guess what the MPG is and then check your answer (and see more pics) after the jump!
When buying a numbers matching, Hemi powered anything, one has to be prepared to spend some serious coin. If said car has been burned in a fire then flattened by the resulting collapsing building, that is generally reflected in the asking price. This toasted Charger is currently over $13,000 but has yet to hit the reserve price. See the story at Bang Shift and check out the eBay auction. Is it worth it? More pics after the jump!
Editor’s note: this is the second badly scorched Hemi Charger to be listed for sale recently. Remember this burned 1968 Hemi Charger we posted last year?
