Up for auction on eBay, this ‘67 Coronet likely comes with the same gold paint that was applied “at the St. Louis factory over half a century ago,” the ad reads. But this doesn’t stop here.

The seller says the car, which is actually a barn find that was stored by a woman for over 20 years, comes with almost every single original part that it was equipped with when it left the factory.

The restoration job that it received was minimal, they guarantee, and with a professional respray, it should easily be brought in nearly mint condition.

It was resurrected and overhauled only replacing the components that were needed to make it a confident cruiser. So almost everything you see is believed to be original, including the full trim, factory wheel covers, and big chrome bumpers,” the seller says.

It’s believed the V8 engine that powers this Coronet is the original one that was fitted by the manufacturer. New parts, like an aluminum radiator, a replacement carburetor, a battery, and a brake line have all been installed.

This all makes for a particularly strong-running survivor. And this Cornet was already built to be good cruiser thanks to the a A727 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes,” the seller says.

The interior has been well preserved despite spending so many years abandoned in a barn. The Dodge steering wheel, the two wide bench seats, the dashboard, the door panels, and the carpeting are all believed to be original.

There are even provisions for nice extras as the AM radio is still on display, and while the air conditioning system is currently disabled, there are many of the major components still in place,” the company that sells it explains.

The car has only 45,714 miles (73,569 km) on the clock, and it’s believed this is the actual mileage and an odometer rollback is very unlikely.
