  • POLISHING THE GOLD

    This magazine-featured Dodge spent most of its life as a slant-6 Coronet Deluxe sedan. That is, until vintage Funny Car enthusiast Richard LeFebvre located it in early 2004 and kicked off an intense build that, with the help of an altered wheelbase, shaved a pair of the car's doors. The new 2-door profile capped steel doors, a steel trunk and a steel hood with composite fenders and composite bumpers that were ordered directly from the pros at Fiberglass Plus, Inc. And naturally, a distinctly '60s profile looks best in '60s pigment, which is why 1965 Dodge Gold worked so well under vintage, hand-painted graphics. For the next 12 years, this MoPar roared along as a deliberately faithful tribute to moody racers of a bygone era. But then, in 2017, a professional freshening, conducted by Mike Mancini's American Muscle Car Restorations, Inc., totally refined the car into a clean, street-friendly marvel that's both sorted and reliable. Today, this Dodge rocks as a dreamy pavement pounder that's poised to claim trophies and sure to turn heads!

    Thanks to an acute attention to detail, this Coronet certainly puts the “hot” in hot rod. At the front of the car, a black-trimmed grille hangs a MQQN Equipment catch can between clear parking lamps, a painted bumper and halogen headlights. Behind that grille, 15-inch, Ramcharger-style ram tubes front a stainless-trimmed greenhouse that's lightened by plastic side windows. At the sides of those tubes, a clean profile is devoid of everything but factory door handles. And at the back of the car, a Dodge-branded trunk bends around stylish taillights, a small kill switch and a second painted bumper.
