Time to fulfil a muscle car fantasy. This is a real-deal 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible. Not only does it give you serious Mopar rarity, but also this example has its numbers-matching 440 V8 under the hood! Combine that with an awesome shine, complete vintage look, and an upgraded Six-Pack package, and this is the droptop that gets attention the moment comes into view.
The '70 Coronet is a very in-demand style. It has a cool dual chrome bumper setup that surround the headlights and give this intermediate the wide appearance of a full-size. It's one of the most aggressive designs of the muscle car era, and it was only offered for this year. Despite its sporty style, it's reported that there were less than 300 examples of its most potent droptop, the R/T convertible. This history and rarity is why they have made sure to only invest in keeping this looking good and powerful, but never straying too far from originality. For example, this was born Mopar's Bright Red and today it still looks vibrant thanks to a clearcoat respray. That big gloss is there to help highlight the superb fitment of the body panels. Plus, this muscle machine has a true dark side with bumble bee rear stripe and the blacked out rear panel joining the crisp back vinyl roof. And you have the best R/T performance features, like the fresh air hood scoops and side scoops that accentuate the bulge in the rear fenders.
If you like the way the black convertible roof looks against the exterior, then with a flip of a switch, it powers down to reveal an even more impressive black interior. There has been a careful eye inside to keep this looking era correct, right down to the premium wood trim and AM radio that's still on display. There's a wide dash and plenty of room for family and friends - once again reminding you that this classic intermediate Mopar really does have big full-size appeal. Even when you're just enjoying this one solo, the high-back bucket seat, sports steering wheel, factory tach, and center console w/floor shift offer a true driver's machine feel. There's even power steering to keep it feeling easy.
When it's time to go to the car shows, we know you'll be spending all of your time with the hood up. That's because within the bold red engine bay lays an even bolder Mopar orange beast. This was born with the mighty 440 cubic-inch V8, and the numbers-matching block is what you're still looking at today. Plus, the callout on the air topper isn't lying. This has the triple-deuce carbs mounted on an Edelbrock intake for the legendary "Six Pack". The whole engine bay has a very tidy presentation that tells you there was the proper care here, and it runs strong just like you want a big block to be. Plus, with the rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust, everyone will know your power superiority even if you haven't even come into view yet. And Mopar people know the Torqueflight A727 three-speed automatic transmission and 8.75 rear end are the kind of stout equipment you want for getting all that power to the pavement.
This is an exceptionally rare Mopar that's built to show off and enjoy. Something this unique can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so don't miss you chance. Call today!!!
