Description

The Dodge Coronet R/T offered a ready-to-run combination of upscale standard equipment and more than 400 CI in every available engine. Indeed, the 440 Magnum was the largest-displacement street engine offered from the Mopar syndicate in 1968. Substantially more expensive when new, convertible muscle cars have become increasingly more attractive to today’s buyers, as they were produced in smaller numbers than most of their coupe and hardtop counterparts, and, of course, offer their owners exciting, open-air driving experiences. The comprehensive restoration in 2008 by Blue Chip Street Rods in Madison, Wisconsin, shows from every angle on this gentleman-level option combination. One of 519 R/T convertibles produced with this engine, this car features its matching-numbers 440 CI Magnum powerplant between the front frame rails. Equipped with a 4-barrel carburetor, performance ignition parts and headers, this is a nice combination of factory appearances and day-two modifications. The matching-numbers TorqueFlite automatic transmission backs this engine up, and chrome exhaust tips send the music into the air. Ordering the R/T meant a special hood and rear panel, unique R/T badging throughout and chrome rocker-trim moldings. This car is painted in blue with a complementing black “Scat Pack” rear stripe, black top and black interior. That interior is wonderfully appointed from the factory with bucket seats, a center console, R/T trim, chrome floor shifter and AM radio. There is a Rallye dash in place with factory rocker-style controls, clock/tachometer and 150 MPH speedometer, as well as a set of aftermarket gauges for engine monitoring. Riding on chrome 5-spoke styled road wheels with Firestone red-stripe tires, the car will come with a photo album of the restoration. Driven only 3,000 miles since the restoration, this big-block Mopar convertible is equipped with power steering, power brakes and a power top.
