I have owned this Dodge for over 14 years and have NEVER advertised it for sale. I bought it the FIRST day that it was advertised on the internet in 2003. The R/T was restored in 2002-03 just BEFORE I purchased it. Before restoration it was a NO RUST Oklahoma garage kept car. During restoration, it was completely disassembled (photos available). This is a very RARE car (verified by the fender tag and VIN- WS27). I have been to hundreds of car shows and have NEVER seen another convertible. I have seen a number of hardtops (total production of over 10,000 hardtops), but never a real convertible. There are some books that say they produced 628 —-1967 Dodge Coronet R/T convertibles. This number is apparently incorrectly reported. I have a letter from Chrysler Motors (plus other articles) that states that they only produced 196 R/T convertibles in 1967.
1967 was the first year of the Coronet R/T. The 1967 Coronet R/T is a one year only R/T body style. In 1968 Chrysler Motors changed the body style drastically. My 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T has the original engine (440-rebuilt-375 H.P.), automatic 727 (rebuilt) on the floor console, power steering, SUPER RARE FACTORY AIR (currently blows warm), RARE AM/FM, RARE factory Bendix power disc brakes (first year disc offered as option from Chrysler Motors), sure-grip, 3.23 axle, magnum 500’s, originally a bright red car with pearl white buckets (PP1 code verified by fender tag)—restored back to bright red exterior and pearl white buckets from Legendary interiors. I have won MANY first places with this car but I am most proud of a BEST OF SHOW with 232 cars present (see photo of 6 foot trophy). I can provide verification of the BEST OF SHOW (for the next years car show they put MY car on the front of the car show T-shirt. A NEW T-shirt goes with the car to the new owner). My car was also invited to be displayed at the (IL) Barrington Concours d’Elegance (only 140 cars were invited from all over the world.) Also, my car was chosen for the FRONT COVER of OLD CARS WEEKLY newspaper (Nov. 15, 2012 edition) which included a 4 page article covering this rare R/T convertible (possibly the only factory air Coronet R/T convertible produced). Who orders a 60’s Mopar muscle car convertible with factory air?? A copy of this article can be provided. The title of the article was RARE AIR. In addition, I have a standing invitation to display my car in the very limited BLUE RIBBON section every year at Iola car show in Iola, Wisconsin (over 4400 cars in attendance yearly at this show).
With the show condition of my car, its options, its rarity, its color, its awards, its publication recognition, and maybe most importantly the super rare factory air; I feel my car has a higher value than other 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T convertibles w/440 engines. However, if I can avoid the car auction circuit and avoid paying all those fees and the hassle and expense of shipping my car to the auctions, I will sell it below market value at $59,500. (rock bottom price).
