    Hello everyone! I'm a mopar head from Germany and I'm driving currently a 67 Coronet since about 12 years and a 79 Ramcharger since about 3 years. It is a 4WD with a 360 4bbl.
    First trouble was to get a permission for the german streets. Now the car is licenced and on the road.
    First jobs were electrics, some less body work and the transmission. Next jobs were getting parts like a soft top or some highbacks. Really difficult was getting a fitting hitch. That was a sadly a real problem in Germany. For the next season I will recondition the interior.
    I sign up here to meet more like-minded guys.

    many greetings

          Welcome aboard from NJ. You can also join FBBO for help with the Coronet. As requested a picture of that would also make us happy!

                A few pics of my `67 coronet 440.

                The first pic was made after the transfer from Redwood City. It was a one owner car for more than fourty years. It was originally equiped with a 383/4bbl and a TF727.

                The second one after about one year with me.

                The third pic is mouch newer.
                Meanwhile many little things have changed. Electronic ignition, a NOS antenna, original Mopar road wheels, TTI exhaust system, firm feel stearing gear, a new block with little more displacement, a stronger transmission from Hughes Performance, etc.

                Forgive my off topic in your truck forum. ;)

                best regards

                  All is forgiven, the car is very nice! Still have the original engine stashed away?

                      Yes, I have stached away both, original engine and transmission. Both belong to my Coronet.
                      But the original engine is still completely disassembled and waiting for a rebuild sometime.
