N-Code Wagon: 1971 Dodge Coronet Crestwood

1971 Dodge Coronet Crestwood

Finding an old wagon in original condition is not as hard as say a sports car. The average buy of each car was different. One was sensible and the other just wanted to have fun. I tend to jump back and forth between the two camps because I can appreciate what each has to offer. So, even though I drove the MGB to work this morning, I wouldn’t mind having this 1971 Dodge Coronet Crestwood Station Wagon tucked away in the garage. That title was a mouthful, but perhaps it’s fitting because this is one big car. With a jump seat out back, this thing has seating for nine. Even more exciting though is the fact that it has a high performance 383 four barrel under the hood! That was probably as close as you could get to Hemi power in a family hauler so perhaps the first owner knew how to have a little fun too. Find it here on eBay out of Broomfield, Colorado.

    Wow how did it survive not being used in demolition derbies

    Someone w/ more knowledge than me can de-code the fender tag, but there are some interesting things going on here. The 150 mph speedo (if original to the car; it looks like it)has got to be super rare on a wagon, the miles “could” be original, almost looks like it, and the 383-4 in this car might as well be a unicorn. Nice to see this kept pretty intact.

      The speedometer and gauge package is correct to the car. Anything that had a 383, 400, 426, 440 etc. had the package. The seats, dash and most covering is the same package found in the Sebring and plus models. Even some of the road runners.

    Being a Coronet made it a mid size wagon, did anyone really need a bigger wagon ?

    Saw and almost bought a really nice 72 Plymouth Sport Suburban Wagon a few yrs back that was originally sold to a NY Fire Dept had a 440 4bbl just couldn’t come to a price.

    this has been repainted as i see overspray on some of the moulding. at the buy it now price it would need a very good PI. if is all there and no rust what a fun driver it would be even with the automatic. i too hope it does not get parted out. great find

      The side chrome also suggests this car was built with wood grain trim. Removed when repainted maybe?

    Not everyone is as well versed as we are so I give some leeway however, why describe faults such as the front seat upholstery and dash without photo evidence? There is also belt line trim missing on the drivers front quarter. And if the car HAS been resprayed it would be nice to know.

    There are far more survivors than this seller thinks, and how might they determine the rarity of the paint if there are only a “handful” left?

    Seems a tiny bit evasive, which doesn’t sit comfortably, but it IS awfully clean, and unique.

    I love wagons.

    Great submission!

    Quite possible it was only painted in area where wood grain was removed.

    from the rear 3/4 view its amazing how much this looks like a vista cruiser wagon. i like this much more than any of the dodge, plymouth cars typical of the era. nice lines, lots of room, good times.

  9. Charles

    It could be a fun car.

  10. Leon

    was it this model Dodge wagon ? or which model that had the rear wipers disappear down into the tailgate ?

    I took my drivers test at age 16 in one just about like this one. It belonged to my uncle that raised me. It had the 383 four barrel engine. Also had the 150 mph speedometer as well as a rim blow steering wheel. It also had the am/fm stereo radio with the cassette player/ recorder that set on the floor. Very nice car, also had power windows.
