Great Mopar — I like this car but would really like to talk to the previous owner to get the details on the motor. Over all it is a great car and a ball to drive and join my Mopar buddies at cruises and car shows.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Wish I Still Had It.. A Sleeper — Dark Tourqoise metallic with factory white vinyl roof... It was the 500 series... Loved the roof line to the trunk... My first car in 1972...Only had a 318, but that was enough... Bucket seats, big trunk for hiding friends into the DRIVE IN MOVIES !!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Built for the drag strip, easy and cheap to work on at 43 years old

Cons

inadequate brakes, some important parts were 1-year only items

A Big Block Mopar From The Super Stock Era Is The Way To Go — The '62-'65 cars aren't as popular as the '66-'74 cars most people think of as true muscle cars, but this is how it began. Styled in the interim years after Virgil Exner left but before Elwood Engel fully took over, they're a little plain but that doesn't matter much when you're packing a 426 Max Wedge. They're more go than show with a certain sleeper aspect (The Little Old Lady from Pasadena drove a '64 Plymouth). Once you upgrade the brakes to handle the weight and power this car is great, reliable, and fast, though watch out when cornering. There's a lot of weight up front so wet roads and a limited slip can make any intersection feel like Dead Man's Curve. Still, they're smaller than '66-up Mopars so they'll hold the road better when it's dry. Aftermarket support of the '62-'65 Mopars has really hit the scene in the last 5 years making them a good choice for restoration, racing, or daily commuting.

The Bluesy Bunch. By falconhead

This wagonis unbelievable! It has factory air and runs like the day it was born. I've driven it on a couple of 2000 mile trips without a single issue. I think it deserves a set of custom wheels. C... Read More

Great Overall Car And I Wish My Dad Didn't Back In To It And Destroy The Door By Scott

I love my coronet because it feels great to drive and has classic American styling. It's cool yet practical, fun but not excessive or wasteful. It's been reliable and never really lets me down (except... Read More

I Built This By fhpautomotive

I got this car from my brother and completely rebuilt it a couple years ago after pulling it from storage, where it had sat for over 10 years. I love this car, almost as much as the roadrunner I used... Read More

Dodge By Chris

Big ass Dodge. I liked it, even if it wasnt a Chevy. Big and ugly, so people got the hell out of the way when they saw it coming. The 318ci motor was not bad, but not as strong as a lot of Mopars. Read More
