    1968 Coronet Body Plugs

    Does anyone reproduce the special body plug that goes in the radiator area, left and right, where there is a large hole (larger than the other body plug holes) and has a hole in the middle and split up the hole. It allows the wires to move from under the hood to into the fender area to get to...

    Hood Insulation

    '68 Coronet. I ordered this from Classic: It is nice but it is not really like the original. It is sort of "crispy" like foam core material. The original was more "fiberglass" insulation like. The Coronet hood...

    68 Coronet Hood Seal

    anyone have a photo of the orientation and direction of the molded ribs (towards the hood or radiator support) of the seal that clips to the hood? It has two notches that look like they should allow the hood bumper to pass through but it just looks wrong. Thanks Jim

    Restoring a '68 Coronet 500. I realized yesterday that the left fender has been replaced through a few clues (no under coating and a big part number stenciled on the inner surface). Next I realized that the left side did not have a Pentastar Medallion on it and the rocker moulding clip is...

    Let the Restoration Begin, NOOB questions...

    I got my '68 Coronet 500 home tonight, with a little drama. The J hooks/chains on the flat bed crumpled the gas tank and now I have a varnish (I mean gas) leak. The car has not been driven since 1984 so that gas is _really_ old. This may have been a good thing so I can get a new tank from the...
