In 1967, to combat the strong line-up of GTOs, Chevelles and Gran Sports from GM, Dodge had to do something to get eyes on the Coronet.  Their answer…the R/T!  The styling and lines were favored as were the standard 440 cubic inch motor with 4bbl carburetor producing 375 HP!  The standard A-727 TorqueFlight Automatic Transmission was upgraded to 4 clutches when mated to the Coronet R/T 440 engine.  Underneath the car, the R/T benefitted from what Dodge called its Police Handling package–heavy-duty (.92-inch) torsion bars, ball joints, one-inch shock absorbers, a .94-inch front anti-roll bar, and six-leaf extra-heavy-duty rear springs.

Inside, b
ucket seats and carpeting were integral to the R/T package.  The exterior presented itself well with R/T badging, louvered scoops on the hood, a special grille treatment, tail lamps hidden in the louvered trim and fine body-side pinstriping is used to help emphasize the Coronet’s Coke-bottle sides.

The car presented at auction is fine example of 1967 Mopar.  The car has had a re-paint and the exterior and white interior show very well.  The numbers matching engine and transmission were rebuilt in 2010 with approx. 1000 miles since the professional rebuild.  The suspension is stock to the car with the exception of a disc brake conversion on the front.  The car came with Factory Air Conditioning but is not currently hooked up.  The original parts are available.
