Sometimes it seems the Mopar guys are so busy chasing Chargers and Daytonas that they forget about Dodge’s equally awesome, and often more exclusive, Coronet R/T. Available with the same ground-pounding big blocks as its brothers, the stalwart Coronet was the fratzog brand’s reasonably-priced alternative for buyers who wanted big performance for not a lot of money. And ultimately, when it comes to modern day collectability, living in the shadows of those more famous brothers was a great thing for cars like this sinister, HEMI-powered convertible. As one of only eight HEMI/A727 Coronet drop-tops built, and one of only three known to still exist, this square-jawed land rocket is an incredibly rare car that’s freshly restored, highly correct and fully documented from its Chrysler broadcast sheet all the way to its 2012 Galen Govier visual inspection, which landed the car a 1.1 score by Mr. Govier. If you’ve always wanted the chance to own a top notch, investment grade Chrysler, but don’t really care for all the over-hyped ‘regulars’ that seem to dominate the hobby, you’re looking at your next trophy winner!
