From Steve W. – I have a 1951 Dodge Coronet in extremely good condition (except for the engine) that I bought from someone in Pennsylvania. I live in Naples Florida and I was impressed with the condition of this vehicle. It has everything offered by Mopar – fog lights, spot light, sunshade and the interior is in very good condition with radio, clock, electric wipers, turn signals and more.
The headliner is like new. All the glass is in perfect condition and all window and doors work perfect, including the small vent windows. It was repainted years ago and was parked in a solid garage since 1990/91. There is NO rust whatsoever. The previous owner only drove it in the summertime and the car is heavily undercoated.
When I first got the car I did a compression check (the engine turned over easily) and I only had good compression in one cylinder and partial on another, so I pulled the head and discovered most of the valves were stuck so I proceeded to tear the engine down in preparation for a rebuild. Not long after that I had a serious fall and consequently had a pacemaker installed so I’m not in any condition at this time to continue with this project. Therefore I’ve decided to put this car up for sale. I’m asking $3,500. My number is 239-598-4623. I have many more pictures and will be glad to talk to anyone interested.
