66 Coronet Hardtop

Average User Rating:
  • new wheels.jpg View attachment 676284 View attachment 676281 Fell in love with the red paint and white stripe and roof, no rust issues with body or frame. Hoping to replace front bench with factory style buckets and center console. Dash needs work but its all there. 383 was built by prior owner and seems healthy, my guess a moderate cam, Edelbrock intake, Holly carb, Headman headers with very nicely built dual exhaust with cutouts. Will be adding a 67 3.5 inch hemi hood scoop. The new photo above is with 15x4 wheels and MT front runners and 15x8 with 275-60-15 MT DOT Sportsman slicks.

    I think it's beautiful! Love the white and red. I'd keep the bench and have the interior done in white vinyl or leather....just sayin'.

    Like the red/white. I bought aftermarket buckets from www.onlineupolsteryandmore.com and are pretty happy with them. They recline and vinyl is holding up well. He put pics on his website of them (white with headrests) and they are also in this site under Faux Coronet RT pics if you want to search. Good luck.

    Very very nice - beautiful red. I would think the scoop should be white. Maybe with a large white stripe down the middle of the hood that is the width of the scoop? Please post pics of the engine and interior.

    I would go red. If you want some white, then 2 stripes following the contours on top.
