With this bicolour Dodge Coronet four-door sedan, a striking full-sized American road cruiser is coming up for auction! Built in 1958, it is a 4th generation Coronet with an unwarranted mileage of 38,800 mls, which according to the previous owner may well be original. The car comes in what’s stated to be an unrestored original condition inside and out. It still bears most of its original paintwork in bright and dark grey and its original trim. The front left wing has a visible dent. At the rear section, traces of not expertly repaired previous damages remain.
In accordance with the taste of its era, the Dodge is heavily decorated with lots of chrome, which is in good condition. It also features the characteristic swept-wing design, which was only used on the 1957-1959 Dodge models.
According to the previous owner, the 5.9 litre Firebolt V8 engine is installed, which produces up to 227 kW (308 hp) of power. The advertising brochure claims that it “unleashes a hurricane of power” and “tames a tornado of torque”… This Coronet comes with the “TorqueFlite” 3-speed automatic gearbox which is controlled by push-buttons to the left of the steering wheel.
To quote the brochure once again: “You rule the road in a Swept-Wing Dodge”.
