Pinky's Coronet Convertible

1966 Dodge Coronet 440 383 4-bbl / Automatic

*1 of 134 Convertibles built *

Special Ordered, highly optioned and not sold at a dealership ( Dodge Promotional car? - see second photo )

Options : Light Package ( glove box, trunk & E-brake warning ) 3.23 Sure grip, Cleaner Air Package ( California ) Bumper Guards, Power brakes & Steering, Electric Clock, Retractable Seat belts ( front & rear ) Tinted Glass, Sport Wood Grain Steering Wheel, Power Windows and Rare Blue convertible top

I believe the lead car in this photo from the 1966 NHRA Winternationals is Pinky's convertible.

Interesting facts
Pinky bought it in 1976:for $125 ( I still have the cancelled check )
Restomodded in 1980:only driven 10,000 miles since 1980
Front brakes converted to later model disc:done in 1980 - maybe the first to ever do one?
Pinky is my Dad:He died in Sept '09 @ 61 years of age ( way to young )
TTI Performance Exhaust :This car was used to prototype TTI's B-Body exhaust system
American Racing S200:These wheels have been on the car since 1979

Nice to see such documented history. Sad to see the owner wasn't able to enjoy it into his late life.
