This Coronet does not just look very appealing, she also has the mechanical and interior work done at the same level of quality. A labor of love went into every inch, and it shows. She drives and shows beautifully. There are receipts for everything that went into the build. One of the iconic muscle cars of the 60's, its hood scoop gives it that aggressive look all muscle cars have. The paint is called Mitsubishi Rotor Glow, it was a color used on the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer. Because the car was stripped down and prepped, the paint is in excellent condition. Keystone Wheels are wrapped with BF Goodrich Radial T/As, 15X6 front and 15X7 rear.
The interior remains quite original. The seats were recovered, new headliner and carpet, but the door panels and dash are original. The engine was completely gone over. The block was bored and cleaned. The heads were resurfaced, valves ground, and the engine was balanced. There was a new cam lifter installed new rings, a high volume oil pump and new 2M 692 Rings and KB237 Pistons were installed. Aluminum radiator with dual Spal fans for additional cooling. Trunk area has no rust issues as it was also focused on during the restoration. As you can see, the undercarriage is as clean as the rest of the auto. The headers were ceramic coated. The transmission is the widely popular 3 Speed Automatic A727 later renamed the 36/46 RE, used with the 440 engine.
We have extensive photos and CDs of the restoration. There is no rust left on this car. wherever there was any, it was cut out and replaced with metal pieces. The rear wheel wells were tubbed just about 3 inches. Shocks have been upgraded to KYB front and rear, and front brakes have been converted to upgraded disks. This rotisserie restoration was fully documented both in pictures and on CDs. 100's of pictures were taken during the process. There is also a book full of original receipts showing money spent on this labor of love. All of this and 3 folders of receipts go with the car.
