The Coronet was an American car that was built by Dodge between 1949 and the 1980s. The 5th edition cars, built between 1965 and 1970, are the ones that are most appreciated by collectors and fans. They came in several configurations including: 4-door wagon (1965-70,) 4-door sedan (1965-70,) 2-door sedan (1965-67,) 2-door coupe (1968-70,) 2-door hardtop (1965-70,) and a 2-door convertible.
This edition of the Coronet received a complete redesign. Like the Plymouth Belvedere and the Dodge Charger, the new Coronet used the B-body platform. Trim package versions included the base model Coronet, Coronet Deluxe, Coronet 440, Coronet 500 and Coronet R/T. In 1968 they added the Super Bee, which was nearly an identical car to the Plymouth Road Runner.
The Coronet had a variety of engines available, but the most impressive were the V8 440 cu in with 6 barrel carburetion and the 426 Hemi. The Super Bee with the 440 engine had a “6 Pack” decal, which referred to the three two-barrel carburetors that pumped up the power output.
The Hemi was well loved by drag racers. It had a top speed of 142 mph and it had a 0-60 speed of 5.2 seconds. The base model of the car was fairly inexpensive for its day, but the Hemi engine option was quite expensive. Since so few original owners ordered the Hemi, it is exceedingly rare, making it highly sought after by collectors.
