1965 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible

I bought my Coronet convertible it on E-bay without knowing
very much about the car. There were very few and rather bad
photos online, and no facts on the engine and options.

But I struck gold (LOL) and got me a real nice car w/60K
on the odometer, a 318 engine, 727 Transmission, and new top,
(the seller he didn't even tell me that!).

The Dodge is in a very good shape, almost "untouched
by human hands," with just a repaint in 1997.

I put in 11 inch cop brakes and a new carpet, nos rear bumper,
and rechromed the front bumper; that's it.

The Dodge drives like a dream, no rattle or wind noise with the
top up.

This is one out of two 1965 Dodge Coronet convertibles in Sweden.
The funny thing is at the same time I imported my car, another
guy imported a 1965 'vert, same color, same interior, built one
week after mine. We just happened to meet each other at a car meet!
Not a single 'vert '65 in the country for 40 years and suddenly
there are two!

Thanks, Ralf!

You certainly did strike gold! Mopar gold, that is!   smile!
