Hi y’all, Im Jason. I just bought my first Mopar project.

1968 Coronet 440 (4 door sedan)

it needs a lot of work, but it is 100% complete, 1 owner, all original except the wheels. The original owner even gave me a photo from its better days in the late 70’s or early 80’s


im glad there is a forum like this for new owners like me.

Great car, one of my favourite model/ years! How many miles and does that A/C still work?
I haven’t combed through much yet. I literally just bought it on Sunday. The owners wife said everything worked when he parked it 4 years ago. He passed away about a month after he parked it and has sat there ever since. Ill let you know when i get into it.
84k miles showing on the odometer. Probably rolled over at least once in 50 years

Since it is completely original, i hope to do a full restoration to its original condition .. although i am toying with the idea of a disc brake conversion
