If the thought of a highly-documented, numbers-matching 426 Hemi coupe didn't already have you drooling, then just take a look at the mileage. Yes, this 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T has actually traveled less than 20,000 miles in its lifetime. Now is the chance to get your hands on the possibly the best surviving Mopar that has barely seen the road.

The Chrysler B-bodies of this era seemed to follow a variation on Theodore Roosevelt's adage of, "Speak softly but carry a big stick." This coupe has a wide and dominating presence, but it doesn't use big ornamentation to show its aggression. Instead, it carries a simple wide chrome bumper that looks like the huge grin of a man who knows he can beat up every last person in the joint, but he'd rather just enjoy his beverage... for now. This same attitude is easily seen on the only real modification of the car, a protective respray of the factory silver paint. It looks nice from across the show field, but the closer you get, the more you notice the hint of sparkle and how this highlights the sheetmetal that's gone unmolested for 47 years. A car this cool couldn't hide all of its street-eating nature, and so the Super Bee-inspired quad strip was added. Plus, you know this car draws blood with its standout red color reserved only for the original R/T badging and redline tires (originals included).

The upscale black bucket seat interior looks as fresh as the day this pillarless hardtop left the St. Louis factory in 1968. It comes with plenty of the desirable options like the center armrest and AM/FM radio, but what you'll really notice are the performance-oriented upgrades. Your right hand gets to grip a four-speed manual transmission. Your left hand gets the wood-grained three-spoke steering wheel. Your eyes are keeping track of the full Rallye gauge package, including the tic-toc-tach.

We don't have enough space to describe how excited we get when we see a numbers-matching 426 cubic-inch Hemi V8 under the hood. No matter how stout this powerplant is, these motors were often eaten up by making a hard living in-between the stoplights on Saturday nights. Instead, this Coronet R/T carries just about every original nut and bolt because no one ever abused this one. The key to this preservation is this silver bullet might be nearly half a century old, but it has traveled only 19,871 documented miles (averaging less than 425 miles per year!). Beyond the rare motor, this coupe is desirable for being great on the road. Besides the abovementioned four-speed manual, this one still has appealing performance features such as the original factory dual exhaust and mufflers, coilover suspension, and a Dana 60 Sure Grip (limited slip) rear end running a versatile 3.54 ratio.

This is the Mopar that steals the show, no matter if it's a survivor category, or just straight out American muscle. When you buy this Hemi Coronet R/T it comes with a host of original parts as well as a ton of documentation (literally a suitcase full), including the original window sticker, factory build sheet, dealer invoice, bill of sale, owner's manual, and warranty card. Every license plate ever on the car is even included. This car has been cared for and recognized for its uniqueness enough that there were also meticulous maintenance records kept, and it's Galen Govier documented. Yes, you've found the Holy Grail Mopar, but act fast because this is no longer a secret. Call today!!
