    1957 1957 Dodge

    fuel: gas
    title status: clean
    transmission: automatic


    Here's a nice, original and somewhat rare 1957 Dodge Coronet 2Dr Sedan.
    Sold new in Soccoro, New Mexico and it is now in Arizona.
    The original owner stopped driving the car 15-20 years due to him getting up there in age and he could not drive anymore. The Dodge has 84.100 original miles.
    There's service books dating back to the 60's in the glove box showing that he put most miles on the Dodge in the 60's. So the car has not seen many miles in the last 50 years.

    He ordered the car with 325 V8, 3 speed Torqueflite pushbutton transmission, tinted glass, dual exterior mirrors etc.
    The Coronet also has the rare see through plastic sunvisors, large DeLuxe stainless gravel guards and chromed exhaust outlets.

    Due to the lengthy storage I have done a lot of service work to the Dodge to make it running and driving again.
    Boiled out fuel tank, rebuilt carburetor, rebuilt brakes, new dual exhaust system, complete new interior, redone steering wheel, I had the rear bumper trippel show chrome plated, new tail light lenses, rebuilt water pump, new battery and on and on.

    The Coronet had rubber floor mats, not carpet and when water gets in under the rubber it takes forever to dry so I had to cut out a part of the inside floor and replace 50% of the floor using fresh metal.

    The white paint is original and from 1957, I added the red to spice it up a little.

    The Dodge is still mostly original and unrestored and pretty nice.

    Well yeah, TBH I'd prefer a hardtop over the sedan body too.

    Love it - I would go with blackwalls, dog dishes and trim rings, and a nice RB under the hood. I believe a 350RB dual 4 bbl was available, no?

    I don't mind the seats either, but if true correct covers were available I'd go with them.

    While I prefer hardtops too, the posts on these cars are nice and thin, and therefore don't detract too much.

    Great lines on that car, and it's beautifully straight. The way the body side trim lines up is among the best I've seen.

    If you're talking about the red and white one Mark I can take a look at it. I know the owner. His Name is Bo and he exports a lot of cars to Sweden.

    [QUOTE="Mike66Chryslers,
    *The 66 is an Ontario car with rotten body and frame, in case that's your issue, @Newport 66 .






    I'd have more of an issue with hacking up a perfectly good 59 Dodge like that. It's just fine like it is.

    Car in Post #1 looks great as is. I wouldn't change anything except the blue hoses.
