Dodge Coronet 1968 Description

Well, he time has come to part ways with my beloved Coronet. My father and I have owned the car for about 13 years. The car was originally a 318/904 car painted B5 Blue. The car now has a 400/727 combination. The trans has a fully manual reverse pattern valve body that was rebuilt buy a professional mechanic. The engine was rebuilt about 12 years ago with a stock bottom end and a Mopar Purple Shaft Hydraulic cam .509/.509 lift 292 duration, delbrock Performer RPM intake and a Holly Carb. The engine runs great without any issues. While I was in the military my dad had body work done and the car painted. It's painted Plymouth Prowler Orange Pearl Coat with a Super Bee Strip (not a real Bee). This was about 10 years ago now and it's starting to show in some areas. Mainly the hood scoop, hich is fiberglass riveted onto a steel hood and then the seam was glassed and it is now cracking. I stored the car a a friends one year and on the hood the paint was doing something weird in an area. The tail panel around the taillights is also starting to bubble. The floors are solid, know there is one small patch on the drivers side. The car will need a trunk floor and the frame is solid except the trunk extensions which can easily be replaced. The carpet is faded and it currently has E-body seats in it. The drivers seat is torn. I have original low back B-Body seats that will go with the car. I have been gathering parts to one day restore it. I have inner and outer wheel housings, oors from California an extra tail panel (I started restoring this and have the tail light buckets off and trunk latch), runk lid (trunk lid was forced open and I cut the bent sheet metal out), nterior parts, 440, nd sub frame connectors that go with the car. Feel free to ask any questions if you are local and would like to see the car please contact me. I can also take more pictures for anyone that is seriously interested (Please contact me if you are interested). The car is a real head turner and gets thumbs up everywhere I take it.
