Offering a 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T 440 4 speed car project
Still has the numbers matching engine in it ( have not checked the vin on transmission yet )
Has Dana 60 rear end
After checking the engine over and turning it over by hand to be sure everything was free
Cranked it over with just the starter to get some oil up into everything
I started the engine just to see if it will run by topping up some gas in the carb fuel bowls and a little down the intake
Ran a wire from battery to coil and jumped the solinoid on the starter
Cranked over and started and ran till the fuel was gone

Over the years the car has had several owners but the ownership is still in the orignal owners name as no one ever transfered it
I found the original owner and paid him a visit as he is still alive and now 79 years old and we talked about his old car
He did mention he had it up to 145 mph once and the car was still climbing but was running out of road :)
He also pointed out if it was still his old engine it would have the dual point set up in the distributor and sure enough it still does when I checked later that day
The engine was never apart and he never had to change the clutch
Odometer reads just over 82 000 miles now

At one time the car was in poor shape but now has had most of the bad metal replaced
Now has all good floors and frame rails
Full driver quarter has been replaced with a southern quarter
Passenger side has a partial skin replacement
The inner fender needs repaired or replaced under the battery tray area (car comes with new AMD inner fender)
Bottom of one rocker has a small hole and the lip of back window opening on passenger side needs a little work
All the glass is here

About the only main thing missing is a 26 radiator , fuel lines , brake lines kind of little things that should be replaced for safety reasons anyways

Comes with lots of extra parts
Better pair of 68 front fenders
Better pair of 68 door shells
A better set of 68 tail lights and center trim
The piece that goes between the grill and front bumper ( the one on the car has a bend in it )

The car comes with a pile of orignal paper work
Has ownership card
Fender tag
Build sheet
Has the glove box owners manual with the blue Certi card still in it
A few of the first oil change records are filled in on the pack pages of manual
Has the order form he filled out at the dealership when he ordered the car
Base price was $1949 and he added about $200 worth of options to bring his price up to $2157.75 plus tax
Also looks like the original window sticker is here

The car was ordered with
440
4 speed
Dana 60 with 354 limited slip rear end
Power steering
Power disc brakes
Black vinyl top
Bucket seats with buddy seat in the middle
QQ1 paint colour

The car is located close to Toronto Ontario Canada

I am asking $22 000 Canadian which works out to about $16500 US with the current exchange rate
Do I have to sell it ? No I do not
If I do sell it it will be very hard to replace such an interesting project with original engine and interesting paperwork
But I do have 2 more second gen B bodies I could use the funds from this sale on
I will consider a trade towards a 1968 Dodge Charger only
If it does not sell I will just store it in a barn till I get time to work on it
It could be a great barn find in the future :)

I have more pictures if there is something you would like to see just ask

Update Nov 23

I have had a couple messages and I might be wrong on what the original price of the car was when new
The yellow order form paper also says something about a 66 Dodge trade in so the end price is the difference of the trade and new car price
No where did it say what the original price was for the coronet
Sorry for any confusion

Maybe you said it but i missed it. What is original factory exterior color? Interior color?
 
In the ad it says QQ1 for the original paint colour which is very close to B5 blue in 1969 colour codes

The car was originally blue outside and blue interior

.............
Just send me a private message if you are interested in buying the car and what you would like to know about it

I have had a few ask about the car and does it have a Title with it
Yes it does have the Title card with it
Around here we call that piece of paper the ownership but it seems I can not go back and edit my original post to fix the wording
 
Well today was the day to move the car from the shop to the barn for storage
Before I moved it I jacked it up and confirmed it is the numbers matching transmission in the car
Since there is no glass in the car at the moment I tarped it down to help keep all the extra crude out of it
I have been having good luck keeping mice out of my cars with some of those smelly scent booster you put in the washing machine so I put a few trays with some here and there in the car . Tarp helps keep the smell inside the car also :)

So what's the laws these days entering Canada with my truck and trailer???

I'm not vaxxed... n sure and hell won't be.
 
I googled it and this is what it said


Return or travel to Canada​

COVID-19 emergency border measures have ended

  • Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is not required
  • COVID-19 pre-entry and arrival tests are not required
  • Quarantine after you enter Canada is not required
  • Using ArriveCAN is not required
    • To save time at the border, you can still use ArriveCAN to complete your customs and immigration declaration before flying into Canada. Visit ArriveCAN: Advance CBSA Declaration for the list of participating international airports.

  • avoid taking public transportation
  • check provincial or territorial requirements for what you need to do if you’re symptomatic or have tested positive for COVID-19
 
As long as you've never been convicted of a crime, or have been pardoned for same, you're good...

Thank you. Very hard to know whats what these days. Who knows, they'll be changing these rules next week

In NYC, especially impoverished areas, they are back to masking up again.
 
Don't bring any firearms or ammunition either.
