Lot #746 - 1966 was an interesting year for collectible dodges.. The biggest news in the performance arena for 1966 coronets was the availability of a 425hp 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, after all a two 4bbl solid lifter detuned nascar engine and most american car buyers needed something a little more versatile. In hemi muscle, author robert genat claims that with the street hemi, "dodge now had a full-fledged muscle car". 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 warrantee card. What a rare find in the 1966 dodge coronet 500 hemi!
