5k: Sedantary Market: 1967 Dodge Coronet 500

You don’t need to be a comic book villain’s henchman to appreciate the allure of a 4-door intermediate sized  Chrysler product from the 1960s.  The big Dodge/Plymouth sedans are cool, but the market has been depressed for years, which isn’t a bad thing at all for someone who just wants a cheap useable classic.  Find this 1967 Dodge Coronet 500 for sale in Oakland, CA for $3,800 via craigslist.  Another tip from KBZ.

It isn’t just the Dodge 4-door market that has been low, just about any 4-door classic with a coupe version is worth scrap value when compared to the 2-doors.  Chalk it up to the fact that the 2-doors were less common when new and more desirable now and classic supply/demand economics dictates that the sedans should be cheap.  This should not pose a problem to the family man who just wants a fun classic for the weekend as at the end of the day for about $4k you can get this Dodge, a basket case inline-6 powered Mustang or DT’s own VW Beetle.

The 4 door version will give your back seat passengers are easier way in/out of the car and reduce the stress on your arm when swinging the doors shut, so it is win/win all around.  This Coronet is powered by a 318 cubic inch V8 that is have been rated at 230 horsepower and 340 ft-lbs of torque when new.
