NO RESERVE!!! BID TO WIN!!!
Up for sale is my 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 2 door Coupe. The car is a matching number, factory big block 330 HP 383 car w/ Factory Air Conditioning. The transmission is a 727, 3 speed automatic. She is also equipped with power steering and variable speed wipers.
Dodge did not stamp VIN numbers on their engine blocks until 1968. What proves the engine to be original are the following facts:
Engine casting date is 3/30/1965 Engine install date on pad next to distributor is 5/14/1965 (Also stamped HP- see photo)Production date on fender tag is 5/20/1965
This is a fairly rare Mopar. Dodge only built 4,704 383 ci Coronet 500s in 1965, and most of those were not equipped with factory A/C.
Being a 500 model, the car came from the factory with bucket seats and console with floor shift. The car is mostly original and unmodified, with only 1 repaint. As stated, this is a factory air conditioned car, and the system is complete, but it is not currently functional. It may just need a charge of Freon.
I've recently installed new tires, new fuel tank, new fuel sending unit, new metal fuel line from tank to pump, new fuel pump, and new starter relay. I've also rebuilt the original Carter 4BBL carburetor. The car is equipped with dual exhaust, which has obviously been replaced at some point, since it has a cross over or H pipe installed to improve performance.
The car has lots of torque and is really fun to drive, but she's not perfect. She is nearly all original with just under 115,000 miles on her. The engine leaks some oil and so does the transmission. The radiator is original and also weeps a bit. I just check the fluid levels once in a while and enjoy the car as is.
The car has been repainted and the paint and body work are driver quality. There is some filler in the lower fenders and quarter panels behind the wheels. The chrome could also use some attention.
Clean Colorado title in my name. Car is garaged at my home in Peyton, CO, just North West of Colorado Springs. Shipping is the responsibility of the winning bidder. I can make myself available to meet a transporter and assist in any way that I can.
This is your opportunity to own a rare, early muscle car that is already weekend-car-show worthy! As I said, she's not perfect, but she can be driven and enjoyed as is, and is definitely a car you will be proud to own!
I wouldn't be letting this one go if I didn't need the $$$.
PLEASE feel free to ask any questions or request any photos of any areas. You are also welcome to schedule a time with me to inspect the car in person. This car is being sold at NO RESERVE, and I want her new owner to be happy with their purchase!
I require that the winning bidder pay a non-refundable deposit of $500 within 24 hours of the auction's end. The remainder is to be paid by certified cashiers check or cash in person.
