Hey all -

Happy to be here! I grew up around B-Bodies my whole life. Here's my dad's "triplets" for your entertainment. Here's a quick breakdown:

2-Door: 68 R/T - HEMI 4-spd - Bought in 2015
4-Door: 68 440 Sedan - 318, 3 on the tree
Convertible: 68 R/T - 440 4-spd - Dad bought this in 1972. It's the "baby" of the family. I've only been able to drive it within the last few years, and I'm 33!

Welcome. I take it B5 blue is his favorite color? Not a bad choice at all.

Here's a few pics of the girls. About 5 years ago, I had a 1/24th scale model commissioned for my dad. Attached a few pics of that - they even recreated his keychain!. Also - a good friend of mine sent me the collage pic below - for many years, the only time I was able to drive the "baby" (the 'Vert) - was during my home town's parade. (Because I couldn't go faster than 10 mph :lol:)

Welcome from NY.
Wow never seen a collection of 68's like that.
:thumbsup:
I have 2 66's but one's a Dodge and one is a Plymouth.
And oddly enough they are different colors as well.

Welcome to FBBO from Ontario, Jimmy. That is a fine collection of '68 Coronet's your family has. It doesn't look like you are going to have to do much parts searching.

Nice! I see your addicted like me. I wish my '69 Coronets were in the great shape your '68 Coronets are.
Have: '69 Coronet R/T Convertible. Originally B5 Blue, 440 4-speed. Bought with a different drivetrain, and now has a 505" stroker 440 and 5-speed OD trans.
A '69 Coronet R/T Hardtop. This one is pretty rough condition. Again, did not have original drivetrain when I bought it. Likely to get a GEN 3 Hemi Swap.
Then the '69 Coronet 500 (model) Hardtop. Just a 318 car, but in pretty good condition. Might put a 360 and 518 trans in it?

Also have the '71 Charger 500, and a '73 Jensen Interceptor.

Welcome from Fredericksburg, VA. Beautiful cars! Looks like blue is a popular color in the household.
