1965 Dodge Coronet 500

1965 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible Orginal 383 V8 Automatic Power Disc Brakes PS

Here we have a 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible for sale. This is factory 330 HP 383 Big Block car that is done in its original color combo with lots of options. 1965 was the reintroduction year for the Coronet and what better way to equip it than with a Drop Top and Big Block. It features the original 383 Big Block and is believed to be only a 3-owner car with documentation back to the 70's. From our research it's believed there were only around 400 of the Coronet 500 Drop Tops offered with the 383 making this a stunning collector. The body on this car is in phenomenal condition and it's clear that the previous owners took excellent care of it. All the gaps look excellent on it, and the hood, doors, and trunk all open and close with a great fit. It's been repainted in the factory optioned Medium Blue paint that has been polished to a gorgeous finish. The paint lays on a straight body with gorgeous body lines and styling that are iconic to this reintroduction year for the Coronet. We can see that all the chrome and stainless on it has a brilliant finish and the fit is even more impressive. The side stainless flows flawlessly from the front to rear and the trunk stainless is stunning. This is a factory Power Top Convertible that has had a new top installed, but it was done in the factory option of Blue that compliments the paint perfectly. To finish off the look it's sitting on the factory style wheels with the correct Spinner Style Hub Cap along with White Line Tires.
Next, we will look at the interior. On the inside it follows suite with the exterior as it done in the factory blue option as well. This is also having a factory bucket seat and console car. It also came factory with the Power Windows. We believe a lot of this interior is original to this car and is in phenomenal condition for its age. The seat covers are done in the White and Blue that provided a beautiful compliment to the exterior and it also has the matching white boot for when the top is down. All the door panels look original and are in great condition and feature the Power Windows. Looking at the dash you'll appreciate how timeless the design is. The stainless accents look excellent, and the gauges are beautiful along with the factory steering wheel. Inside the trunk is all rock solid with all the trunk pan looking excellent. It does have the trunk mat along with spare and jack.
Finally, we will get to the driveline of this Dodge. Under the hood it's powered by the Original 383 engine that is detailed just like the way it would have been when coming off the showroom floor. It mated to the correct 727 Automatic Trans and 8 ¾” Rear End. The 383 is set up with the Edelbrock Intake and Edelbrock 650 Carb that's dressed in the 383 Magnum Air Cleaner. This Coronet 500 comes with Power Steering along with Power Brakes with Disc on the front. For exhaust it has manifolds with dual pipes and Dynomax Mufflers. When you look under this Dodge its clear that it has always been very well cared for. It's a unibody car with no signs of abuse or damage. All the floor and trunk pans are original and still show the factory under coating. The gas tank has been replaced along with the fuel lines. Under the front all the suspension looks excellent with the bushings and ball joints appearing to have been replaced. On the highway this is a sweet driving classic. Don't miss this gorgeous muscle car that represents the start of an infamous era in American Car History.
