AJ's Car of the Day 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T 426 Hemi Convertible

Car: Dodge Coronet R/T 426 Hemi Convertible

Year: 1968

What makes it special: It is a rare car, with only 9 ever produced. In fact, they are rarer than the famed 1970 Hemi 'Cuda convertible. For 1968, the car received updated exterior styling. Gone were the straight lines and sharp edges, replaced by a rounder, more "Coke bottle" look.

What made it famous: For the 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T, engines ran the gamut from mild to wild, and the Coronet could be as heavy-duty as buyers pleased. Your top of the engine line choices were the 440 standard and the optional 426 Hemi V8 with dual 4-barrel carburetors. TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmissions were standard.

Why I would want one: It's rare in the 426 Hemi convertible platform, but even with the more standard V8's, it's still not very common on the road today. It's got very appealing body lines, and an aggressive look to it's front. Very cool.

Fun fact: Today the Coronet is best remembered in its tire smoking R/T and Super Bee trim, and is one of the better expressions of pure American muscle Mopar put on the street.
