Mr.mk1's Mopar or No Car '70 Dodge Coronet


Recommended Posts

 

Jolly good show Josh!

That manifold is so old that they were offered as a factory performance part from Direct connection. (I have one too) The general consensus over at F.A.B.O (which is where the really clever mopar gurus are) is that they're really good, and actually preferred over the newer Edelbrock Performer manifold. I asked my dad to bid on one on ebay (before I found mine on trademe of all place) and he got into a bidding war. Exceeded my NZD max budget in USD, (and then some) but was still outbid by someone who wanted it more/had deeper pockets.

Yes!!

Congrats. That will be a nice car when it's done. I dont think I've ever seen a hood like that on one of those 

 

Looks like it was originally the same green as my plymouth

Cheers! It looks like you could order any hood you wanted and change the badge. I’m yet to decode and see what it was supposed to have. The pinstripes are LOL but old and aged, probably 80s mod.

yea same green, green interior and a green vinyl top! Nice colour but there’s so many wild factory colour codes to choose from!

Shame the tag is so rusty it’s a struggle

Good stuff mate, I had a SuperBee for a wedding car. Frothing hard!

No honeymoon means I've been looking on ebay at all sorts. Main thing is you've got it.

From what I can read of your vin cause I enjoy decoding the muscle cars;

W - Dodge Coronet ("B" body)

H - High (Price Class)

23 - 2 door hardtop

G - 318 1-2BBL 8 Cylinder "LA" engine

0 - 1970 (Model Year)

C - Jefferson, Michigan or could be G - St. Louis, Missouri

Remaining Six Digits indicate Serial Number

I could be wrong but I think that all corresponds to the build plate. 

The door & door jam all the same numbers as the build plate - so at least its "numbers matching"

Also I'd take the build sheet and  laminate it or put it in a clearfile
