Does anybody know if there is a registry of 1967-1970 R/T Coronets?

http://www.dodgecoronet.com/coronet/

Not sure if this is the same as the old Coronet Registry?

When I looked on the link above, looks like it only goes back to 2013?
I know there was a Coronet registry way before that, but maybe it's the same and they archived the old stuff?

Yes, that is the same site.
The board was redone about that time.
It never evolved into a registry as originally envisioned.

Any idea on how many 1969 R/T convertibles are left? Looking for one without much luck.

It's hard to even find a '69 Coronet 500 convertible at a decent price.

Originally, I looked at a '69 500 with 318 that was cosmetically made to look like an R/T. Offers were made, but no deal. So I just keep looking (not real seriously) for many years. At the time, I did not care if it was a 500 or R/T, and finally found the car I have now. Just keep looking and asking around. On the other hand, there are a few restored ones that pop up at specialty car places, but they are big $$$$$

As I was writing this, I searched around, and there is not much out there. E-Bay has the Black R/T Convertible for $60K. Then there is a Green R/T Convertible R/T in CA, for $83K. Hemmings shows a Green 500 Convertible for $29,500, but looks like the spare tire bracket is in the wrong place?

I had my cars in the Coronet registry, and also sent the info to Galen Govier as he has a registry too.
My '69 Coronet 500 Hardtop had an extra build sheet. Same color combination car (T7), but a 383 and my car is a 318. The wrong build sheet was behind the rear seat. I sent it to Galen in case the cars owner ever contacted him.

I’ve tracked them and sought them out since 2002. These are my numbers and mine only from what I’ve found....

I have about 80 VINs on file. Of that maybe 30 are truly roadworthy. Another 10 to 15 need some serious work. The rest don’t really exist or can’t be saved.

A couple of the 30 have been seriously modified.

How hard do you want to look? whistling

thanks for the info Doug.

So out of the 80 VINs you have only around 45 are driveable or restorable?
So 35 cars are just VINs/Tags or condition "6" cars? Huge amount

Those are just WAG numbers off the top of my head.

I just checked, I have 86 WS27*9G VINs.

Yes, some are VINs of cars that no longer exist but were documented at one time.
