    Garlits had both the white one and the red one the last time I was in his museum.

    Pretty sure he only owns one of them, though.

      Garlits has a white 66 Coronet, Not 100% sure if he owns it or not.
      A guy I know in north eastern Ohio owns a gold Coronet

      I know of a red one that was out west last I heard . And and I cant remember the color of the 4th right now. But I want to think it was also red.
      the Belvedere in Europe was a medium blue . and best I remember was a 67

      I think,,,,,,,,,To the best of my knowledge ALL were / are bench seat column automatic cars


      EDIT, In regards to the Belvedere in Europe. The last I heard was not confirmed without a doubt it was in fact a factory built Hemi car. It is not known if it still exists or not.

      my memory isnt what it used to be so I may have some details off

      I was told in 2007 about a 66 hemi Belvedere that Tom Hover was testing one in 65 ,his neighbor rode in it with his brother driving. Hover gave them the keys and let them take it around the block crazy stuff.Last night I was on a test drive in my 65 dodge and I stopped at hogs in dogs for some dinner and a guy came up to me and was taking about my car and said back in the late sixties he had a light blue 66 Belvedere 1 with a hemi in it and in the glove box was a sticker that said factory test car or something . Crazy I my car reminded him of that !

        Not too many 66 4 door B body cars built without a bench seat and column shift IIRC.

            For the longest time Garlits thought he owned the 2 of 4 known to exist,untill one was found in Bracebridge Ontario Canada, and was sold to someone in the States n I think this was the red one.Google it there is a big rite up on it.

              The one from Bracebridge Ontario is light brown or beige. I believe it did go to the U.S. at some point. I have a photo of it from 1980 7076380-HemiCars-FrontShot-SaubleBeach1980.JPG

              It is second from the left. These are all Hemi cars in the row, Sauble Beach Ontario.

                  The red Coronet 4-door was displayed at Carlisle indoors one year. I talked to the owner and said there was a gold one up in Ontario, where I live. He said he had recently bought it to restore. The red car went through a Barrett-Jackson auction and sold for $660,000. The owners were hoping for $1,000,000. The red and white cars were originally found quite close to each other in St. Louis, MO. After Garlits acquired the white car, he built a clone of it to drive to car shows and cruise nights. I have personally seen three of the four Hemi Coronets known to exist.

                  There is a 1963 Plymouth Fury Max Wedge 4-door sedan that is known to exist. It was in a few Mopar magazines a few years ago.
