Auction Block: 1970 Dodge HEMI Coronet R/T

Jun 3, 2020

Category: Rides

More than a decade after the start of the pony car craze, consumers were still gobbling up American muscle cars like candy. However, some of the most exceptional examples to ever be built were also woefully rare. Take, for instance, this 1970 Dodge HEMI Coronet R/T. One of just four built, this classic car is now headed to the Mecum auction block.

Complete with matching numbers, this Coronet was the first of the four 425HP HEMI-powered, 4-speed manual, hardtop examples produced. And while that pedigree is enough to garner attention, it also recently benefitted from an “extensive rotisserie restoration” in 2014 to get it back into fighting shape with all factory and/or NOS parts. Furthermore, the engine was also completely rebuilt in 2000 by legendary drag racer Dick Landy. There’s not an expected price announced for this ultra-rare American legend, but we can’t imagine this beauty won’t get scooped up for a hefty fee once the hammer drops at Mecum’s Indianapolis auction in July.
