|Bernie's 67 Hemi
Dodge Coronet R/T
Purchased in 2013, this 1967 Hemi Coronet is one of 10,181 Coronet R/T's
built by Dodge. Of those R/T's, Hemi-powered cars numbered 61.
27 with Torqueflites and 32 had 4 speeds. My car was built on January
5th and shipped January 26, 1967.
A Dodge executive ordered this car and drove it himself prior to being
dropped at the dealer. That dealer being Hub City Dodge in Marysville,
My Coronet was featured in "Automobile Quarterly" in October 2008. She
is a 55,000 actual mile, original sheet metal and numbers matching car.
The Coronet R/T was Dodge's first muscle car. Plymouth's version was
the GTX. It's finished in the original color of GG1 Dark Green metallic. It
has power windows too! I've added 15 inch magnum 500 wheels to
replace the original 14's, because all the car did was spin those all the
way down the road!
My car is documented by it's IBM card and was decoded for me by
Daimler Chrysler. Plans are to show it this summer and just have fun.
