14. Just One of Two Produced
They presented the Coronet nameplate in 1955 on full-size cars as the highest trim level. But in the mid-60s, it moved to the mid-size segment, becoming Dodge’s most successful product. Coronets were attractive intermediate cars for family buyers that came with a large selection of engines and trim levels.
So Dodge offered the famous R/T trim package on two-door coupes and convertibles, too. This meant those more ambitious buyers could get a 440 V8 or the famous 426 Hemi engine in their Coronets. The Coronet R/T was Dodge’s answer to the Pontiac GTO, Chevrolet Chevelle and the intermediate performance cars. But the car most fans remember is the super rare ’67 Coronet R/T Convertible with a Hemi engine.
They only built two of those cars, which makes this Coronet the ultimate collector’s item. The Coronet R/T buyers in those days opted for the more reliable and almost equally fast 440 Magnum engine and closed body styles. Whoever bought that plush Hemi convertible must have been looking for a powerful cruiser with a lot of options. They never intended this car to be a stoplight terror, but more as a summer night’s express.
