I’ve never been much of a Mopar guy, but this old-man-gold Coronet is pushing my buttons. The boxy lines, body-color steel wheels with dog dishes, and brown interior with a horizontal speedometer all scream “sleeper” to me, even if it only has the small 318 V8. I think part of the appeal is that Dodges tend to have more overt styling, but this is restrained and handsome. Price is a little steep, especially since the front seat needs recovered (likely a victim of the “western” sun), but it’s definitely a great starting point for a fun car.
