Thank you for posting pictures of the car, Can you continue to post details on this car or start a thread in the member build section? I also have a 66 hemi coronet and I am interested in documenting the details. A lot of the suspension components on my 66 were black. leaf springs, lower control arms, idler arm, pitman arm. I would also like to see the wheels and details of the stampings and if you remove the tires, details inside the band of manufacture. Really any details that can be documented the better.
Pete was very much about documenting hemi cars, the NHOA vin list that was published back in 1990 was a brain child of his. Today myself and a close friend with help from him and other try to continue that work. Awesome car!

Thank you for the kind words.

I remember going to Pete’s house once in 1988 and looking at trailer cache of parts he got from back east. I carried NOS alum 990 heads onto a self and he pointed out an extra 68 S/S A-body disk setup in the pile. Crazy stuff.

I plan on making a list of date codes and complication of markings. We are just caretakers of these cars.

The lower control arms are also black on this car. I thought maybe done when a bushing change took place. Now keeping a little open mind in that.

Heckuva car - I say you're doing the right thing there.
I still have a couple NHOA decals from back in the day - guess that deal folded up.
Judging by the gas pedal, looks like carb linkage is disconnected ?

I have a build thread in the members project section about my 66 if you have time check it out. I also see the grommet around the dimmer switch in the carpet that a lot of folks say were not used by mopar, but my 66 had one too.

There's one on Ebay right now - "Hemi Owners decal" is how I found it.
Only 2 hours left, but I don't know if you'll see this by the ending time.
So, I'm bidding on it and it's yours if I win - I'm at $5.51 max bid right now.

There are actually 3 of them . But I have it already. And didnt pay anywhere near $500 for it 2 years ago.
There is also a 67 Coronet hemi owners manual. All of them have been for sale for quite a while

the bottom of the pedal is bolted to the floor, and the top pushes on a roller wheel.
i agree the linkage is hooked up, but the camera angle could make it look like it wasn't.

I think this rubber access cover looks replaced with maybe someone from a later car.

What does the 1966 rubber cover here look like? Anyone with a picture of an original one

Looks like a forward cover - the rearward ones are larger.
Those little holes are for the cover clips.

EDIT: My 1st sentence is wrong wrong wrong - rt side is the smaller one, left side is the larger one.
Sorry for the brain fart.

Yes, That rear one looks like there was a different cover at one time that was attached to the little holes.

But does anyone have a picture of that rear one? So I know what to look for?

In the front, I have the traditional B/E-body black painted oval-ish metal cover held by two screws. That's all that goes up there, right?

I bought them last year and still haven't put them on.


But yes, only thing in the forward end are the metal ones held with 2 screws

Yup, I was wrong and have edited my post.
Don't know what I was thinking, sorry.
Smaller one is right side, larger is left, on my '68 & '69, which I think are the same as '66-'67 in that regard.
Neither is perfectly rectangular like the one somebody attached to that car.

Thanks,

So my front is good. Just has a very well defined line where the undercoating was masked.

I keep seeing red oxide primer on the side facing surfaces on the undercarriage. Like when they put the red primer down before paint, it blow over into the wheel well, rocker pinch weld, etc.

At first it looks like the red is over the grey dip. Which I would assume. But would like more proof.

Blacked dipped lower control arms and black centerlink, pitman, and idler. Mattmopars and two other people also have this with their 66's.

My front sway bar is also black with black sway bar brackets. I think this was dipped as an assembly with the bushings!

Tri Castle nuts on Idler and Tie Rod end still.

Original paint motor on bottom here?
