Thanks all. We oiled the cylinders, gapped the plugs, and changed the points and condensor, and boom fired right up. It took about 10 min. for a lifter to quiet down. Ran it for 15 min. changed the oil, topped of fluids, fired up again and that motor purrs quiet! Trans went right into gear no problem and no banging in the rear. Now it on to the brakes.

I will trade you a set of 15x7 Magnum 500 wheels for the wheels on the Coronet.
Then your 68 would look more factory correct,
and my 80 Lebaron Coupe would look more Factory Correct.
or did you take them off your Cordoba to roll it around?

To me, the car is just beautiful. One of many in that time period where the Chrysler/Mopar desginers were turning out some really great looking cars. It doens't bother me that the car isn't an FMJ, but I am only speaking for myself.

Well, the coronet is gone. My oldest son is going to college this fall and one of the cars had to go. I put both up for sale, and said I would keep what didn't sell. To be honest though, I was more partial to Modoba.

I'm impressed. I can't part with anything. I'd sell my kids before my cars.

This is my son's car. He bought with his own money. He is the second owner, and quite proud of his little"Mopar"

It's a 85' plymouth Turismo 2.2 auto. It's actually a great little car to drive. Spent most of it' life in vegas.

Nice looking ride. That was the forerunner to the Sundance. My Beautiful Bride had a Sundance. It was a fabulous machine. We hated to part with it, and wish we still had it today.

I completely agree. I'd leave it just as it is. I love stock. Not particularly interested in fast or loud. Great find!

It seems the Coronet has moved on.
