These two cars are compared by a Chevy guy and a tuner kid. Hmmmm… Well, anyway, check out the video after the jump!
Street Legal TV has a nice piece on the Dodge Coronet R/T, model years 1967-70. Click after the jump to see a 1970 Coronet R/T with the 440 Six Pack–one of only 194!

A true A/FX Super Stock race car, this Coronet was first raced as JC Penny’s “Penny Pincher.” Reggie Jackson was a former owner and the car has spent the last ten years at the World of Speed exhibit at Wayne Lensing’s Historic Auto Attractions Museum in Roscoe, IL. It appears this car was recently purchased at Barrett Jackson’s Scotttsdale auction in January 2014 for $73,700 and is now for sale with an asking price of $150,000.

Recipe for a car to run moonshine: 1. A big block Mopar (of course) in a nondescript color. 2. Extra rear leaf springs to maintain a stock ride height when laden down with moonshine. 3. A rear light disconnect switch for running in stealth mode. Bring A Trailer is featuring this 1966 4-speed Hemi Coronet that once belonged to moonshine runner Wily Clay Call. The 426 is not original but all else appears to be. Now I’ve got that Steve Earl song in my head. Find the original ad DC Classic Cars. More pics after the jump!
Bring A Trailer has located a pair of Mopars for sale on eBay; a 1969 Dodge Coronet R/T and a 1978 Chrysler Conqueror 115 boat!

Curbside Classic has located this 1966 Coronet on a used car lot. The author, a self-proclaimed fan of mid-sixties Mopars, takes issue with the many “custom touches” this B-body has been subjected to. We tend to agree. From the bumblebee stripe, 90’s seats and console, black grill and rather unique color, this girl needs saving! However, at an asking price of $11,000, that day may be later rather than sooner. Find more info at Curbside Classic. More pics after the jump!
Check out this awesome new feature on Speedhunters on “The Coroner” located in Sweden.
“In essence, what he’s done is take a 1968 Dodge Coronet with a 1969 front end, plus a 2007 Dodge Charger, and blend them together to create something that looks old from the outside, but has all the luxuries and performance you’d expect from a modern muscle car at its core.”
