Mr. Norm: ’66 Dodge Coronet 426ci Hemi
There are a lot of reasons to take notice of this rather ordinary looking Dodge Coronet. It is a factory 426ci Hemi engine car with all of the paperwork to support it. That makes it possibly 1 of 136 Hemi-powered street Coronets ever built. And to top that off, it is said to be almost in total original condition. that means paint, interior and powertrain. When the 426ci Hemi was made available to the general public for the 1965 model year, it could be ordered in any Coronet model or trim level. As we stated earlier, a total of just 136 Coronet 500 Street Hemis were built for 1966. Beginning in 1967, Chrysler decided that the Hemi should only be available in only their badged muscle cars: the Dodge Charger and Coronet R/T and the Plymouth Belvedere GTX. The car started life in Iowa and somehow made it to Pennsylvania where it was drag raced. Apparently Mr. Norm worked on the car at sometime and that must mean something to folks who know more than we do! It lives in California today and the seller says everything works including the AM/FM radio. We have a dilemma of sorts because the Sports Car Market Price Guide says they built 711 of these. That’s far more than the Dodge Coronet Hemi site states. SCM has these valued at a low of $51,000 and a high of $83,000. The seller has a $42,500 price tag so this could be a bargain for a muscle-car collector in waiting. Click here to contact the seller.
