Dodge Coronet 1965 Description

I built this car to spec according to the Mopar guidelines handed out to racers back in the day. Essentially, a Dick Landy '65 Dodge Coronet with a Lee Smith Plymouth paint job. The rear suspension is a super stock spring 4:10 gear Dana 60 moved forward 15 inches. Front suspension is a Speedway axle Wilwood disc brakes, Vega steering moved ahead 6 inches. Rules did not allow for engine setback so the Dodge guys moved the wheels forward. I cheated a little and moved the motor back approximately 2 inches from stock. I made everything period correct as possible. Radio and heater delete. Van seats. Winter shifter. Metal flake steering wheel. Red tint windows. Moon tach. Vintage wheels and tires, etc. The motor is a 511 ci Max Wedge, 440 block with 1964 top end, 10:1 compression ratio, pump gas, roller cam. Dynoed at 597 hp, 640 torque. Built 727 trans, 3000 stall converter, reversed valve body. Street legal-ish. Has mufflers and the lights work. Only a few hundred miles on it since completed. I drive it to the track once in awhile, have fun and then drive it home. Runs mid to upper 7's in the 1/8 mile.
Reason for selling is wife wants a bigger house - one of the toys has to go!
