67' CORONET

Recommended Posts

This was a big build for me,  over 2 months,  i started with the Foose Coronet. 

Wanted to build a street monster, so i went with the kit 426 Hemi, and added a pair of monster turbo's, all the exhaust, intake and headers are scratch built.

Fabricated a rear wing, front spoiler, and molded a scoop to the hood, and covered the original fuel tank, and made some diffuses, to go with the theme i wanted.

Interior was subtly changed,  adding some piping to the seats and door trims, also sank the rears back, to make 2 rear buckets, added flocking and a hood lining.

Used the kit wheels, but utilized  a set of wide bands for the rears,  made a 4-link, and mini tubed it too , and opened the trunk, and made a fuel cell.

Paint is a mix of Dupli-color GINGER ALE, and MARTINI GREY, the body was painted 3 times before i got the SATIN look i was after.

That is a monster, how would you keep tires on a twin-turboed Hemi?  Beautiful concept and excellent overall build.  That color fits the theme very well.

I like all the modifications you did and the chassis and interior are nicely detailed. I like the WIDE rear tires but they don't look to be as tall as the fronts.

Great looking streeter.  Love the low stance.  Very sharp with the twin turbos, it would be a killer on the streets until it hits a "speed bump" .... Och.

“Monster” might be an understatement! Awesome, creative build.
