Description
Lot #971 - 1966 was an interesting year for collectible Dodges. It was a transition year of sorts, and it was the final year of any residual style ques left over from the Virgil Exner days. The 1966 Coronet was competing head to head in the mid-size market with the American Motors Ambassador, the Oldsmobile Cutlass, the Buick Skylark, the Pontiac LeMans, the Chevrolet Chevelle, and the two Ford Motor company entries, the Fairlane and the Mercury Comet. The Dodge, despite some tough competition, did well in the sales this year. The car was handsomely styled and it was all new. The lionshare of Coronets built in 1966 were fitted with 273- 2bbl and Poly 318-2bbl engines, but 361's and 383's were also available. The biggest news in the performance arena for 1966 Coronets was the availability of a 425 horsepower Street Hemi 426cid V8. It certainly garnered the most press attention, but the production figure of 740 units wasn't staggering by any means. It was, afterall a two 4bbl solid lifter detuned NASCAR engine and most American car buyers needed something a little more versitile. In Hemi Muscle, author Robert Genat claims that with the Street Hemi, "Dodge now had a full-fledged musclecar". This completely original Coronet 500 Hemi has the Dana rear end, and the Rock crusher 4-speed transmission. It comes with the original factory Broadcast sheet, and is matching numbers along with all factory trim tags, the original build sheet, and original owners manual warrantee card.
