Wearing festive Christmas like colors, this gorgeous 1953 Dodge Coronet sedan is ready to make your holiday season one to remember. Needing nothing other than a new home, this Dodge has been lightly modified. With a stunning appearance, and a great deal of maintenance, this Dodge is offered at $7,300. Find it here on craigslist out of Wichita, Kansas.
You’re a mean one, Mister Grinch, powered by a 241 Hemi, with a 3×2 Stromberg Carb set up, and some wicked side pipes, Mister Grinch! There are powder coated items in the engine bay, although we are unsure what is specifically coated. The core support, fire wall, and inner fenders are all beautiful with no evidence of dust or dirt, and you can forget about any corrosion anywhere in this engine bay.
Inside of this Dodge is nice as well. The front seat is covered, but we are unsure if the bench seat is damaged. The rest of the interior looks very nice, so we hope the front seat is merely covered for protection. The door panels look fantastic, as does the dash and steering wheel. There looks to be some dust on the steering column, and a little dirt on the driver floor area, but if that’s the worst of it, then that is great news.
Rear seating in this Dodge is just as nice, and there are some lovely added seat belts. You can see the front belts are mounted firmly to the floor with high grade hardware. The only thing to really nitpick about the rear seating area, is the door trim around the door opening that is lightly frayed.
The exterior is beautiful, and we always get excited to see cars that have been given the love they need. The owner splurged to get the bumpers re-chromed on this Dodge. All of the trim is present and shiny, and there is not a dull spot in sight. There is no evidence of any rust, and this Coronet is a beautiful ready to roll driver. You would be hard pressed to replicate this car, for the asking price. We think “Grinch” would be a great custom plate for this one, though we would opt to bring the joy of Christmas with this old Dodge, versus taking it away like the Grinch initially did. Would you bring the roast beast to Whoville in this 1953 Dodge Coronet?
