1965 Dodge Coronet Convertible: Farm Find

Dodge Coronet Farm Find

There are times when I’m compelled to research a seller’s claims to see if they hold water. This is especially true when it’s clear that the car was recently discovered and quickly put up for sale, such as in the case of this 1965 Dodge Coronet 500 Convertible here on craigslist for $17,500. After doing some digging, the seller is correct that just over 3,000 of these were made in 1965, so it’s definitely not a car you see every day. With minimal rust, a Hurst shifter and a great color combination, I’ll bet this car was a blast to drive on warm summer nights. The seller makes no mention of whether it’s numbers matching, but given it looks like the farmer he bought it from has a few other classics laying around, it may be worth a call to find out the details on the Coronet and what else he may have picked up. Do you see any other specimens in the pictures you’re interested in?

    I spy a bat wing in the background. I love the 500 but that bat wing is something special.

    Love this car, wish I had the extra cash to pick it up as I just live a 3 to 4 hour drive from him.

    Hmmm. First pic; dusty barn, jeep, old Malibu, 70s Vette, and the top down on a clean shiny car. Staged…..

    This exact model was used in a Doris Day movie “Glass Bottom Boat”
    I recall this with fondness as I had almost the same car, mine was a Coronet 440, however, not the 500 pictured here.
