    My friend Tom (member cudajunction ) pulled this thing out of the pines and knows how much we love 66-67 b-bodies.

    It is an original silver 383-4 barrel car with power steering, remote side mirror, and lots of character.

    We talked about parting it but it is too complete and straight so plans are to get it running and driving... for now.

      Looks very nice. But as has been pointed out to me, I don't know anything about Mopars, so I could be wrong. But I do like it.

      Wow! You'd have to be half-nuts to part a car so solid and complete. That Dodge would have been long rotted back into the earth by now if it was in my neck of the woods. Good find! Let me know if you/your buddy ever fathom the idea or parting that out. I'll take it off your hands and put her back on the pavement.

          It's junk. I'll take it off your hands. Actually I love the '66 coronets. I have a sickness where I get more excited by cars needing restored than cars that are already done.

          I have yet to figure that out. I think the master cylinder went bad. There was a master cylinder rebuild kit on the front seat and the pedal is frozen and on the floor. Time will tell.

          Thanks for the compliment I am very excited to hear it run!

          The guy in Texas that had my 66 said they just drive them until they quit, drag em around back, and go get another one.

          Must apply to washing machines and other appliances as well. I saw lots of those sitting "out back" on my trip.
