“The 1967 Coronet R/T is a car that can never be replicated today, that's a key aspect as to why people still lust after them” - HotCars website, February 2021
Another enthusiast website, HorsepowerMemories, provided the '67 car's history: “The Coronet was completely restyled in 1966 under the direction of Chrysler's Chief Stylist Elwood Engel. Engel's designs had remedied the mediocre styling of previous Chrysler products and the Coronet's design was no exception. The new R/T was available as a hardtop coupe or a convertible for those willing to whip out a little extra dough. The Coronet R/T featured Charger-inspired grille work, nonfunctional hood scoops, and louvered tail lamps. R/T badging is prominently displayed on the grille, rear quarters, and tail section. Chrome bumpers and mirrors along with brightwork on the window trim, rocker panels, and wheel wells add a little extra flair to this pavement pounder. Mag-type wheel covers and chrome Magnum 500 wheels were also available as options. Red Streak tires were standard issue on all… wheel choices."
Offered here in dark red over black, is an exceptionally well-maintained, survivor '67 Dodge Coronet R/T. Correct down to the red-stripe tires and accompanied by original documentation, this is a numbers-matching investment-grade Mopar muscle car in exceptional condition. Showing just 61,556 miles on its odometer—or just over 1,100 miles per-year on average—this is a true, very-low-mileage survivor.
The exterior dark-red metallic paint is original and was an excellent choice to highlight the attractive fastback roofline (preferred by many over the Charger's extended version) and nicely sculpted flanks. All the tasteful chrome body work is in near-showroom condition, as are the bumpers and dual-exhaust outlets. The vertically segmented front grille is complemented with a similar full-width treatment on the rear deck (taillights are “hidden'). All bespoke R/T badging is original and in place on both the car's flanks, the rear deck, and prominently on the driver-side of the front grille. The individual D-o-d-g-e lettering is centered on the hood. Cabin glass is clear and undamaged; lighting lenses are free of cracks. The original, optional, styled-steel wheels wear red-stripe tires as would've been the case from the factory.
Inside, vertically pleated black-vinyl upholstery on the front bucket and rear bench seat shows virtually no wear; only the driver seat cushion shows a minor seam separation. Black carpeting covers the floors with the front carpeting protected with “R/T"-embroidered mats. “Coronet R/T”-badges are present on the nicely trimmed door panels (also free of damage or wear indications). The black dash features a 150-mph speedometer, engine-monitoring gauges, and an analog clock. The leather-covered steering wheel center-cap shows the Dodge Division logo of the day. The automatic-transmission shift lever is column-mounted. A Kenwood audio unit is mounted in the glove compartment while the factory radio remains in place in the dash. The car's trunk is pristine with the original jack and the correct plaid-pattern vinyl floor covering over the spare-tire well (and the red-stripe spare).
The muscle is located under the hood: The 440 Magnum, 375-horsepower V8. How'd it perform? HorsepowerMemories: “For the January 1967 issue of Super Stock Magazine, famed drag racer 'Wild Bill' Shrewsberry was asked to put the Coronet R/T through its paces. Shrewsberry's car was outfitted with the 440 Magnum and TorqueFlite 3-speed transmission. Several drags were made with the car which resulted in the best time recorded at 14.35 seconds running 99 mph.”
The engine bay is very clean and orderly, and nicely showcases the V8 with its “440 Magnum”-labeled air-cleaner cover, chrome valve covers, and blue engine-block paint. All components, wiring, and coolant hoses are properly located. Viewed from below, the chassis is remarkably clean for its age.
The car's original VIN plate remains factory-riveted in place, and the data tag for the build is also present.
While the more than 165 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '67 Coronet R/T in detail, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
HorsepowerMemories concluded their take: “Fast forward 46 (now 54) years and the R/T name is still legendary. Today, the badge is proudly displayed on the modern day interpretations of the Charger and Challenger.” Legendary indeed. The '67 Coronet R/T will always hold a special place in muscle-car history. Chances are, this exceptional dark-red R/T will also hold a special place in the heart of its next fortunate owner
