Found a Home for my 512-(Coronet 440)
      #6208952 - Tue Sep 21 2010 12:57 PM Attachment (285 downloads)

I found this nice 67 Coronet 440 for sale and once I looked at it I has to have it. It is a rust free CA car with a few dents on the passenger side. Has the original drivetrain in it (318 2bbl)and was owned by a fellow MOPARTS board member. I have been looking for the right car to put my 512 stroker motor into and this will be the one. I have stripped the original interior out of it and will post some progress pix along the way.

that's sweet! I'd drop the engine in the boday as is and have some fun for a while. better than worring about scratching fresh paint.

The color is going to stay as I like it too. I am thinking about doing the interior and cleaning up the engine bay and leave the body work for later as it not too serious.

My grandson came over today and we pulled the 318/904 out of the Coronet; 1st time it has been out of the car since new. Engine bay looks fairly good.

Looking good Larry. You mean the engine is coming back to Mn? Glad you're happy with the purchase of the car. While you're that far into it I'd check out the power steering box. That one always seemed a little over-sensitive to me but I never tried adjusting it. I had similar issues with the 67 Fury you looked at and finally changed out the steering box many years back.

Best wishes as winter sets in too quickly this year.

Larry

Larry, I plan on pulling the steering box as it was leaking a bit after I got it home. Now is the ideal time to take care of the little things. I am completely satisfied with this Coronet; as I disassemble it, I am amazed at the great shape it is in. I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Well I pulled th leaking AC/Heater unit out; definitely a job with many battle scars and a few new swear words. Lots of holes to weld/plug.

The trunk was in remarkably good condition and kept that way by the previous owner. He sprayed the whole trunk with a rust preventative or undercoating. It took a lot of cleaning solvent to remove all of the tarry coats and with the exception of some minor surface rust around one of the drain holes; everything was rust free. I wiped down everything with naptha and sprayed it with a left over can of 620 medium copper that matched fairly well.

The passenger side floor had no rust at all but had a few bare spots to where the leaking heater core removed some of the paint. I had a little paint left over from the trunk and used it on the floor. The driver's side has some surface rust that I will need to remove, treat and paint before the carpet goes in.

New carpet and headliner; seats are still presentable. Maybe covers down the road. I ordered a headliner from Yearone and it came in very light color; no where near the sample I got. So I am either going to install it or have SMS do a corect color; only downside is that SMS is going to charge me 4 times what I paid Year one for their headliner...

Interior is close to being finished; new headliner, door panels and seats cleaned up nice with upholstery cleaner and a new dark saddle carpet. I pulled th instrument panel out, cleaned and got all of the lights to work. Installed a replacement front dash speaker and now the radio works. MOPAR MIKE is sending me some small items to complet the dash.

Had a shop take a digital pix of my gas filler door and they matched the paint exactly. I cleaned, prepped and sprayed the engine compartment. Got a few runs but I think the engine should hide them. Starting to put back the basic items in the bay.

Removed springs, shocks and complete differential. Cleaned and undercoated back half of the undercarraige. Wound up replacing the stock springs with XHD springs as I didn't want the car to sit weird with the SS springs. New spring hangers and hanger reinforcement plates from Mancini. Cleaned, painted and reinstalled differential housing with new U-bolts and shocks. Bought a refurbished 742 3.55:1 posi unit from a fellow MOPARTS member. Installed all new brake shoes and hardware along with new lines and emergency brake cables. Removed the trunk trim panel and polished it and re-shot the black. Located 2 NOS tail light lens and reinstalled. Next I will continue on underneath to clean and undercoat the rest and work on some frame connectors. I still am going to put it all back together and drive it before I address the 3 or 4 dings on the body. Car was completely repainted in 2007 and still shines nicely. I'll try and post some pix today.

Looks like it's comming along nicely, can't wait to see pics with the engine installed. It's hard for me to imagine a 43 year old car could be so rust free. I have a 2000 Jeep with more rust issues that your car, I guess that's one of the down sides to living down under.

Well with the help of QUICKD100 we were able to get the 512 on the dyno. With problems of bad gas, timing and a lean Demon carb it finally came to life with a Holley carb. After breaking in the cam and making 6 dyno runs with various carbs and timing settings we went back to the Demon carb, after Dave massaged it. We bumped the total timing up to 36 degrees total. Final numbers were 621 ft lbs of torque at 3666 rpm and 562 hp at 5551 rpm. It will be a torque monster. Here's a link to the complte story.

Doug's headers showed up today; nicely polished ceramic coated. Had to reposition the dipstick and will have to do a little spark plug wire rerouting to the back 2 cylinders.
