    Wouldn’t that be a Diplomat car or some kind of Limo used for US bigwigs while in Tel Aviv?

    Plymouth Fury iii Eight Passenger for sale: photos, technical specifications, description

    Flathead 230 six?

    The Coronado 8 passenger sedan was first built in Rotterdam in 1958.Allpar.com has the only article on the web about them. They were built on a 142″ wheelbase, reinforced frame, and other heavy duty components, and powered by either the 230 inch flathead six or the 318 poly V8.

    Looks like they ditched the old RV2 unit for a Sanden unit.

    Who needs a/c with that windshield-less body? That '88-era Silverado C-30 steering wheel!
    Might be an easier restoration?

    Looking closer, I realized that is a stretched Fury I 2 door sedan.
    Remove the stretch and you have yourself one rare car.

    The front of the car, to the back of the front door looks like a 4 door sedan. The DV door looks 2 door. The back looks 2 dr sedan. The slant looks 80s with the ac compressor and pcv breather. The carb looks to be the emissions variety .

    Considering that Chrysler Corp build 8-pass cars for limo and taxi use prior to 1955, in Chrysler and DeSoto models, might the "Coronado" name come from the DeSoto line, with the "Coronado" trim level? On whatever base large vehicle line was chosen in the international market? In the later cases, Plymouth?

    Interesting link. Thanks.
