1967 Dodge Coronet 500 Restoration Story

Without exception, this car has gone from being in the worst condition to the very best condition.  Arguably the worst condition donor we have started with.  90% of the sheet metal has been replaced on this vehicle.  The motor was even rusted into one large mass!  Undergoing our meticulous tear down process it was determined that a parts car was in order to pillage some unobtainable items from.  What could not be gotten from the parts car was hand fabricated.  Of course, the body was treated to a basecoat clearcoat finish in PPG black.   The engine bay and all other aspects of the restoration were done with factory correctness and longevity in mind.  The results speak for itself, but winning best of show at Houston Autorama the first time out isn’t bad either.
