Based on the crisply styled mid-size Coronet, the R/T was Dodge’s new entry into the late 1960s American supercar wars, purpose-built to trump Pontiac’s GTO. The standard R/T engine was the new 440 “Magnum,” featuring comprehensive high-performance parts and startling ease of maintenance. The 440’s rated 375 hp and 480 lbs./ft of torque were sent to the pavement by disarmingly simple but effective heavy-duty underpinnings. A choice of automatic or four-speed transmissions and a Sure-Grip rear end completed the mechanicals. External adornments were limited to hood louvers and the bold “R/T” badges that would quickly assume iconic status among muscle car enthusiasts.
Equipped with a four-speed manual transmission, bucket seats, console, power steering, tinted glass, and a Music Master AM radio, plus solid paint and a stripe delete, this 440 Magnum-powered 1967 Dodge Coronet R/T was built to perform. Following assembly at Chrysler’s St. Louis, Missouri, plant, this Coronet R/T was sold new from “Mr. Norm” Kraus’s Grand Spaulding Dodge, Chicago’s famous high-performance Dodge dealer. As offered, the R/T is very nicely presented and equipped with a period-appropriate Sun Super Tach and Sunpro gauges. In addition to a copy of the window sticker attesting to the R/T’s “Mr. Norm” heritage, the Coronet is complete with documentation, including brochures and receipts. Riding on a set of American Racing Torq-Thrust wheels enhancing its menacing presence, this 1967 Coronet 440 R/T marks one of the finest American muscle cars of the 1960s.
