Original 1970 R Code R/T 426 Hemi Coronet Numbers Matching Drive Train

I can't help it, I always wonder why people restore a car then put load assist shocks, shock extensions, or air shocks on the rear. Just buy new springs people.

Yeah, or if you absolutely had to have the original springs, you could take them to a spring shop and have them recurved.
Plenty or repro or incorrect parts on this car anyway, new springs wouldn't hurt it. shruggy

Is that hood correct? Black scoops on a white hood? Did Chrysler really do that?
I'm sorry, without some stripes or something to blend them in, they look like warts. down

The color of those wheels doesn't look like body color.
Is that just the light in the picture, or is that Krylon white on the wheels?
Too many little things cheaped out on, to be trying for $100K.

What a turd. Car is loaded with parts store electronics, hoses, etc. Trans stamp is pretty fresh looking, engine stamp pic isn't too close, but appears to be crisp/straight. I'm guessing a re-stamped warranty block and machined/stamped transmission.

Is that the correct place for the air grabber cable?

No, that is where the tach wire (if optioned N85) would be located. I've seen two locations for N96 equipped '70 Dodges. One is just under the voltage regulator and the other is where you'd find the N96 hoses on a Plymouth come out of.

Super Track Pack, but is that a drum brake m/c? The black scoops look awful. What a cool car, though, issues aside.


Earning every penny of that moderator paycheck.

It's where the vacuum lines for the headlights came through on my superbird too.

Yeah it’s a turd! What were they thinking?

I like the door latch hardware, CLASSY!
And the high dollar wiper motor restoration.

That second tag was not factory installed...I used to get them off 80's NY state retired trooper cars with just those two lines or 4 lines...gave many away to friends.

Agreed,

The trans is obviously a restamp. the engine I would prefer to see in person before passing judgment
The car has its issues and not knowing what the reserve its hard to say if its overpriced or not.

1970 Hemi R/Ts don't pop up very often so I couldn't say if its overpriced or not.

But most of the issues I see could be easily corrected without spending a ton of money.

Now, That said. I have always liked the 70 Coronets . But Would I trade him straight up?................. NOPE

Wrong year hubcaps and little stuff here and there. Worse offense for a car in that price range is the painted bottom. Rest looks ok to fixable with a few weekends worth of tinker work if you wanted it more '1970 correct'.

Just as easily being selling off spare parts from a parts car ( not uncommon at all )

Like I said if its legit its a pretty rare car and would need ckd out in person before any money changes hands . ESPECIALLY at this price point.


And to think I almost bought a limelight version years ago . ( like well over 30 years back ) Owner wanted something like $12,500, I offered 10k

and walked away from it. Yeah,I know that was a ,,HUGE mistake .

Guy had a limelight 1970 Coronet RT and a bronze 1969 hemi Charger RT. Best I remember he wanted 25k for both cars
