Just wanted to pass along that I am selling my "B" (with GREAT REMORSE!!!)...

1965 Coronet 500 426 Wedgie/727 automatic/323 gears...not a MAX but a "Street" wedge. I know it "only" has 365 H.P. and 410 ft./lbs. of torque...but I guess some of us have to be humble.

This car is NOT pretty, but it IS strong. Approx. 120k miles on it...

runs VERY well, is ugly up close...well, to the uninitiated it is...but it NEEDS paint, etc. VERY minor corrosion on spots where the paint has chipped...automatic, sure grips, etc. Sheetmetal is straight except for the hood. Prior owner "pranged it" and the salvage yard replacement is tweaked a bit. Replacement/fiberglass are in the $250.00 range.

Thanks, Jim.

I can see why you are reluctant to sell the car.

Ugly? NAH!

NO 426 Mopar could ever wear that description!

Someone else will surely have some fun driving this 500!
