But first things first.
This is a 1969 Dodge Coronet a school in Maryland originally used for a local conversion project. They wanted to turn the Coronet into a drag car, but the project has never been finished, with the vehicle ending up abandoned in the storage in the condition you can see in the photo gallery here.
While it’s pretty clear this Coronet isn’t by any means a car in tip-top shape, it features the modifications made during the drag car conversion, including a roll cage inside.
The good news is the Dodge still runs, drives, and stops with a gas can, but have no worries; the fuel tank also comes with the car. And so do the heater box and a few other parts. Overall, it ships with the essential package to jump-start a possible restoration.
As you can easily tell by just browsing the pictures in the gallery, this Coronet requires plenty of fixes both inside and outside if what you’re aiming for is a full restoration to bring the car back to factory specifications. On the other hand, it might be a lot easier just to finish the project and turn it into the race car it was supposed to be, especially thanks to the 440 engine under the hood.
The price, on the other hand, might be a little bit too ambitious. The highest bid at the time of writing is $12,000, and the good news the Coronet can be yours as part of a no-reserve auction.
