1970 Dodge Coronet Convertible

S&S purchased this 1970 Dodge Coronet convertible from southern California several years ago after it had been sitting in a barn for many years. Registration showed the last time it was registered was in 1982. The car was a very good solid convertible and we got it back on the road as a daily driver with some interior work and just a light tune up. We even installed a new top. This cool car started life as a 318 and 3 speed on the tree. Early on in the 1970’s it had been converted to a 4 speed but never was fully finished. We finished the conversion and installed the proper pistol grip. What an awesome car and fun to drive. We had told a friend about the car and it was sold to him to become a Hemi conversion with a color change that will make it incredible. Watch the total transformation into an amazing recreation of a Hemi car that you will ever see. With only 3 real Hemi convertibles produced there are not many to choose from. This car is being built as if our customer ordered it himself.

15 Dec 2018 – The paint is finished and the red bumblebee stripe has been added and interior work has begun. We have also started working on the convertible top. Take a look at some of the paint pictures and you can see the mirror like reflection in the paint. Black is the hardest to paint, but man, when you nail the body work, nothing looks better.

Jan – April 2019 – Work has moved to the interior and getting everything put together there. Front end is complete as is the rear end.

October 2019 Update – The dash board and gauges have been completely rebuilt and installed. The seats, carpet and other interior pieces are all done.
