RealRides of WNY #2302 - 1968 Dodge

I don’t imagine that the original buyers of this 1968 Dodge Coronet 440 ever thought their car would show up at a classic car show some 54 years later… but, here it is! We came across it a few weeks ago at the 2ndAnnual Dairy Queen Father’s Day Car Show in Eden. The 440 was right in the middle of the Coronet lineup — where a lot of 1960s families’ cars were — and it was the biggest-selling Coronet nameplate, available in two-door coupe and hardtop models, four-door sedan, and two- and three-seat station wagons. If you wanted a convertible you had to move up to the Coronet 500 or the high-performance R/T. Chrysler Corp’s mid-size cars, unlike those offered by GM, didn’t offer a four-door hardtop for MY 1968.
