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.

Progress continues on this gorgeous 70 Coronet. Engine is completed and installed and we are wrapping up the details to get ready for the first drive. Looks amazing.

January 2021

The car is all finished up and as you can tell, it is absolutely stunning!

1970 Dodge Coronet R/T Convertible

This was another major restoration project for us. A 1970 Coronet R/T convertible 440-4 barrel with a pistol grip 4-speed tranny. What made this car even more rare was that it is a real air grabber with a 4:10 dana rear end. Only sixteen(16) 440-4 convertibles with a 4-speed were made and only 2 came with an air grabber and only 3 came with a 4:10 dana and no other one was known to have been made in this color. Yes, this was a true one of one car. The restoration had been started a few years before we got it but the work that was done was poor quality. It came with a build sheet and Galen documentation. It was a total basket case given to us with a heap of parts but hey, for a car like this, no problem! The color is dark tan metallic (T6) with black interior, black top and a black bumble bee stripe. Unique.

1966 Coronet 440 Hemi

This is an original 1966 Dodge Coronet 440 with 426 Hemi. It is a column shift automatic that was a former weekend drag strip car. As such, there were only 11k original miles on the car. Luckily the car had not been tubbed or cut and there was very little rust. The car had been sitting for many years and was not running when we got it. The car has the original fender tag as well as certicard, and it has been verified that it is an original Hemi car. When we finished the restoration we sold the car. Yes, it is an original triple black car with bench seat (all Coronet 440’s had bench seats). All of the sheet metal work was done with factory original parts, nothing after market was used. 

1968 Dodge Coronet R/T 440

This is a 68 Coronet R/T with 440 Magnum and automatic transmission. The current owner has owned it since 1978. It was blown up in that same year and had not run much since then. It was taken apart years before we got it for a paint job and resto but got stuck in the middle. The paint was applied over 5 years before it came to us and had to take it from there and make it look as nice as possible.
