Yes, "None" existing is pretty rare smile

*1970 Coronet Hemi R/T convertibles? 2 known to exist so that's 1 too many for the title.


Isn't one of those supposed to be a re-body?

I don't know Morty, I just know there were two at one time, Torino's FT6 example and an FJ5 example. Which one is said to be rebodied?

For me the rarest and desirable would be a 1970 Monteverdi, only 2 made with the 426 HEMI, how many other 426 HEMI powered cars can lay claim to have factory Chrysler AC as well?


There has to be some unique pulleys on that baby


Wonder what the VIN stamping on that block looks like....

Scott I have a VIN at home of a 67 Hemi satellite that was sold new at the dealer I work for. The car still exists and the owner found us, i’m just curious if it’s one of the “known” cars or if It’s someone who doesn’t internet. I’ll email you when I’m home from vacation.


Also I’m assuming the car currently on eBay is one of the “known” cars. RP23J71122477

I can say with certainty, not the FT6 car....picture as found in Quebec yard, pretty solid car, missing a few items and drivetrain components most of which were re-united in a timely manner.

The FJ5 car has certainly not been re-bodied as its full history is known and it has never been fully restored. I have seen it numerous times and have never heard its originality being questioned. I have never seen the FT6 car but there have been rumors of it being re-bodied for years (that does not mean it's true).

Yes the ebay car was a known example. It is one of the two known automatics, there are also at least 3 known 4 speed hard tops, and two known convertibles

Can you tell us the history of this car and how it was found ?

It would take too long here but I believe it is well documented if you google it.
Long story short..a lady in Quebec got tired of seeing it sitting on her lawn, and after hounding her 'sketchy' son to get rid of it or she would, finally called a wrecking company to come get it which they did.
Yard owner was trying to shoehorn the motor into his wrecker, had sold off dana and trans, hood, fender a few other things...
Ray D and Jerry L, friends from Ontario got wind of this car in the yard, bought car, talked yard guy out of motor, retrieved dana and the rest is history.
I sold Jerry an NOS bare hood with scoop provisions and saw the car when delivering hood.
Jerry did well with that car purchase.

Thanks, thats more info for that car then I have been able to find online. Wonder who the first owner was. Was it a Canada car ?

Some have said there was a 3rd one from Ga that was scrapped out. one story it was white, another blue.

In regard to the Ray DuPois car, I had heard the original owner was a doctor. I remember seeing it & talking with Ray back in one of the first or at least very early Mopar Nationals in Chelsea. Always loved that car & realized it rarity after Mike Updike's list was published.

Yes you are correct, I recall them finding that the original owner was a doctor.
Ray Dupuis didn't own the car, Jerry Lefevre bought it from the yard and restored it.
Jerry had taken Ray with him after initially hearing about the car.
Ray got the dana back for Jerry from the guy who bought it from the yard.
Jerry found the original 4 speed trans but try as he may he could never get it back for the car.

The RUMOR was that it was the FT6 car back when Otis Chandler had it. However if Terry knows the car I will go with what Terry says ever time.

That Coronet R/T Convertible you posted Terry is a 440 4bbl auto car from the yard you go to all the time. My friend Rick M took it in the 1990's.

I think someone on Moparts actually bought it as it was advertised on here as found a few....well over 10 years ago.

Here are some more pics of that yard...does it look familiar Terry?

You're right Dave...too many pictures and too much time lapsed,
I posted the wrong one...they were very similar.
I'll have to see if I have another one
