1967 Dodge Coronet 440 R/T: Regular Car Reviews

Published on Apr 3, 2017 411,806 views

Edit: Sorry for misspelling and mispronouncing Coronet every time. Sorry. I have no excuse. We review one of the muscle car era greats: The Dodge Coronet 440. It is more a symbol of virility than a car

  • Kyle H
    Kyle H 8 месяцев назад I get why now it is helpful to include the liter conversion But when I look for anything for my 300ci. I6 (for my Ford truck), I don't even include the metric size because it's meaningless to me and the old car guys who help me source parts I know it's a 4.9 liter engine, but that's useless to me

  • Scooter George
    Scooter George 2 года назад Definition of liter :  a metric unit of capacity equal to one cubic decimeter — In the US of A it's spelled liter. Don't care how they spell it in France.
  • silicon212
    silicon212 2 года назад Actually, that's a "lighter". A "liter" is the North American spelling of litre.
  • bur1t0
    bur1t0 2 года назад It's a French word, it's also an international standard (Système international d'unités), that all of your scientists use, and spell correctly.
  • Anas Takiyudin
    Anas Takiyudin 2 года назад bur1t0 There's no difference in meaning between liter and litre. Liter is the preferred spelling in American English
  • bur1t0
    bur1t0 2 года назад A "liter" is what you use to ignite a cigarette, which then makes your "litre" of fuel burn your eyebrows off.
  • Scooter George
    Scooter George 2 года назад "Thumbs up for Cubic inch to liter conversion' I thought it was kind of dumb actually.  I owned a 1967 Plymouth GTX. The Plymouth version of this cat. Was even a 1967 but mine was 4 speed. And "liters" were never mentioned.
  • Los The Ghost

  • Howie Felch
    Howie Felch 2 года назад LOL. I had a Pontiac 455 in a 1971 Grand Ville. The teeth on the timing gears were made out of some kind of composite, and they would tend to shatter well before 100k miles. In my case, when the failure happened, they splintered into a bunch of small pieces that I was lucky to not have up my oil pump. Got it fixed and drove on. Lots of fun, but a sucky car by modern standards.
  • 3rd World Garage
    3rd World Garage 2 года назад Scott9084 Also left out: Chevy 400 small block (the original source of the 383 crankshaft) , AMC 390 and 401, Buick, Olds and Pontiac 455 engines, Ford 460, etc. In fact, the 440 was the smallest largest big block displacement from the big three (AMC had no big block, and technically neither did Pontiac so some would say they don't count).
  • silicon212
    silicon212 2 года назад The Chevy 383 was never a factory engine.
  • DonutVampyre
    DonutVampyre 2 года назад Scott9084 The Ford 427,428 and 429. Ford's 352, 406 tri power were left out too.
  • Scott9084
    Scott9084 2 года назад (изменено) Didn't we forget the Chevy and Mopar 383? How about the Chevy 396, the Ford 460? Didn't Cadillac even build a 500?
  • UCreations
    UCreations 2 года назад Liters are metric ;) 1 liter = 1 cubic decimeter = 1000 cubic centimeter. You see how easy the metric system is. Within seconds I can convert between metric units of measurements, you can't with imperial units of measurements.

  • Big block 472

  • Big block 472
    Big block 472 3 месяца назад Horsepower Garage 50 years later and not that much faster. Swap transmissions and tires and see who spanks who.
  • Big block 472
    Big block 472 3 месяца назад CC Ryder '88 Turbo T-bird? You're kidding, right? Another thing: These 440s were low 14 sec cars all day long with highway gears, slushbox trans and bias-ply tires. Manuals were 1/2 sec faster. Low 13's all day with radial tires, lower yet with drag radials.
  • Dave Wilson
    Dave Wilson 5 месяцев назад @Boom King76 Very true. My favorite saying is "trees don't pull out in front of you."
  • Boom King76
    Boom King76 5 месяцев назад Dave Wilson Yes that can happen with a dirt bike. But majority of the time it doesn’t. They are fun but yes they are more dangerous than anything with a cage “go kart or side by side” or a whole body around it a car or truck. But at least being off road you do not have to contend with big heavy cars going anywhere between 60-100 mph with drivers not looking up and driving with their knees if you are lucky.
  • Dave Wilson
    Dave Wilson 5 месяцев назад @Boom King76 I really want another bike but I feel the same way. Last year I only rode at like 10am on my days off and then sold that bike before winter came. Dirt bikes are cool but I actually think they're just as dangerous since most people push the limits on dirt vs cruising/commuting on pavement. I read a story about a guy that became paraplegic because him and his buddy were riding in a field and he rode into a small pothole in the grass, which caused him to get thrown from the bike. Plus I'd have to buy a truck just to haul it to the track so double fuck that.
  • Dave Wilson
    Dave Wilson 5 месяцев назад @Horsepower Garage Everyone says that but they fail to make it fair by also using the new technology on the muscle cars. Install a T56 and sticky tires on a big block Chevelle and I have a feeling it might be a tad faster than it was with a mechanical clutch and bias ply tires. Even if it still got spanked by a new V6 Camaro, I'd much rather lose in a $50,000 classic than win in a plastic POS.
  • Boom King76
    Boom King76 5 месяцев назад Dave Wilson I hear ya. Also I drive semis and if they will cut me off and do dumb things as though I’m not there. I love bikes too. But today the way things are? I’d ride dirt bikes again but have no real want to ride street bikes. I see it. No one is taking their snouts out of their phones anymore.
  • Dave Wilson
    Dave Wilson 5 месяцев назад Big fucking whoop. Ride motorcycles for a few years and then see how dangerous you think it is. I think everyone should be forced to ride bikes so natural selection can resume.
  • Boom King76
    Boom King76 5 месяцев назад Branon Fontaine Damn right! It’s like they want to complain. No air bags,no safety spot monitor,it will not hit the brakes for you oh No!!! What shall we do? How about actually pay attention and drive your car. That’s a good start!

  • J3rEmY17
    J3rEmY17 6 месяцев назад @CC Ryder Very true, but most of those old ohv v8 with some more modern parts replacements will stomp those old numbers. Mostly because we have much better understansing of head/exhaust design and flow. You can build a 400hp naturally aspirated Ford 302 nowadays.
  • StarEquipment1
    StarEquipment1 6 месяцев назад Why do people care so much about safety stuff in their cars? It makes everything so boring. New cars are round and bulbous with all kinds of iPads glued to the dash to add to to distraction of the driver that already has a cell phone in their hand. Drive safely and pay attention and you won't need all the BS the nanny state forces into your cars.

  • Austin Lucas
    Austin Lucas 2 года назад Add in that it probably also doesn't have safety glass, definitely doesn't have crumple zones and the steering column might impale you (I'm not sure when collapsible steering columns were implemented) and I haven't even listed all the other things old cars had that made them dangerous.

The Caddy Big Block makes most of its torque and horsepower way down low....effortless pulling around the 5,000 lbs....passes most modern high-performance vehicles going-up a steep Grade in 3rd Gear (direct-drive with stock 2.59 rear-gear)....while their vehicles Transmissions can't decide which gear to stay in to maintain or accelerate set-speed

    Jonny BigRig T800 Год назад I'm surprised he skipped over the 454!
  • Mr. Butterworth
    Mr. Butterworth Год назад B G - That probably has something to do with the fact that the Cadillac 500 is derived from the 331 V8 of 1949. In fact every size motor that Cadillac used between 1949 all the way to the 500 are various iterations of the same block. Which is also why you don't see too many modified 500s, because that was the absolute design limit of the engine. Smaller versions of the Cadillac OHV were quite popular with racers and hot rodders back in the day, a preferred motor.

  • Alan Maier
    Alan Maier 2 года назад (изменено) The catch here is, I am old enough to remember those engines and those cars when new. It was just a matter of the auto makers building bigger and bigger to compete. The auto makers were having a field day building larger engines... Ford topping GM with the 460 while GM topped Chrysler with their 454/455's (not counting Cadillac) and hoped nobody would actually pay attention to the power curves - just a numbers game. It's like Cadillac having the 500 engine for the Eldorado when the Toronado did just fine with a 425. Ford actually had a 501 "just because" for the Lincoln line, but the fuel crisis stopped it from going into production. Sad fact is, the last of the large Ford engines for the Lincolns was actually a truck spec that redlined in the middle 3000's, which is why the HP rating was so incredibly weak. OH - indeed GM definitely had a motor mount issue! I had a Buick V6 in my '79 Cutlass (bought new) and the motor mount on the drivers side had to be replaced more than once. They at least built in a safety stop after the massive recall they had.
  • Alan Maier
    Alan Maier 2 года назад But back in the middle 1970's, a Chevy 350 managed to squeeze out around 150 - 160 HP on common form as installed in a typical family car. Fuel injection made a world of difference in the 1980's. Fact is, the humble 305 at 140HP actually had more output at a given RPM... it had a much lower redline and thus the numbers were skewed a bit. Lay the power curves over each other (as a large banner in the dealership actually did show) and the 305 was stronger for typical driving. This is where the Buick and Olds engines had a definite edge over a Chevy back then... but the Chevy 350 could rev much higher - it was a tradeoff.
  • silicon212
    silicon212 2 года назад You can learn a lot on the Internet. Like a Buick 430 was damaging to engine mounts and they discontinued it because of that. * Actually, it was superseded by the 455. Similar to how the 427 became the 454. If the 430 killing engine mounts was enough to discontinue it, why replace it with a torquier and more rubber separating 455? God love the internut.

    Novusod 2 года назад There was another displacement war in the early 1900s but it was mostly confined to Europe. Mercedes Benze, BMW, and FIAT all made 20+ liter engines (1100 cubic inches in American)
  • Alan Maier
    Alan Maier 2 года назад Actually I have to stand corrected first up - the Olds big engine was the 425 and Buick had the 430. All of the divisions upped their displacement to 454 for Chevy and 455 for Pontiac, Buick and Olds. As memory served, 1968 was the year when the 350, 400 and 454/455 engines were phased in. Chevy was a bit delayed and kept the 307/327 around a bit longer and were actually offering the 327 and 350 at the same time. Indeed both Olds and Buick were known for very high bottom end torque. When horsepower is calculated, this really went against the lower revving engines, and most younger people don't know that when they compare a 150HP 5.7L engine to a 150HP micro engine in a Kia. Aint gonna see a little engine move an old Olds 98 or Buick Electra!

    Alan Maier 2 года назад (изменено) That was fantastic. Catch with a lot of the middle 1970's cars was axle ratio. You could have a total screamer or a total dog with the came car and engine. The idea was to put "highway gears" on cars to improve the EPA economy numbers, and if you ordered the towing package or simply selected a performance axle ratio - WOW! What GM did with Olds engines was put crazy and insane rear ends in them - like 2:24 on some models as the Olds engines had so much bottom end grunt, but after the launch it got a little sluggish. We had a '72 Delta 88 that would throw stones at the cars behind without trying.... but that run through 1st gear sure got slow once that tank was rolling. A different axle ratio would have really fixed that. Bought that car new and it was passed down from person to person!!! Didn't owe a thing when it finally rusted completely apart... yet the engine was still fine.

    DrewLSsix 2 года назад Alan Maier. i worked on plenty of those caddies, mostly pains in the ass and a lot seemed to have the flat lobe issue. but on the enthusiast side I actually became interested in them through the Fiero crowd, the 4.9 short block with the top end from an Alante makes for something comparable to the ford and chevy 5 point oh's of the time but much lighter. like most of the off brand engines in the past the real drawback is the lack of parts.

  • ronmancvu
    ronmancvu 2 года назад Exactly how heavy do you think this car is? According to Google it's just over 3700lbs. This car doesn't have coil springs like a GM or Ford, it has torsion bars. And with a 440, it's already got the biggest ones they made. A fully-trimmed 440 weighs HALF of a Cummins. Just the head off my 5.9 weighs almost 200lbs, and the complete engine is over 1300lbs. Don't forget, it's also a unibody car, so there's no easy way to reinforce it to hold all that extra weight.

I don't get that. Seems a diesel would be a better engine for a Coronet then a rat rod. And sound is subjective, so who knows about that?

  • 177SCmaro
    177SCmaro 2 года назад (изменено) DrewLSsix Of course they do, they are 500ci engines compared to ~350ci sbf! A 351W making 500HP would be about like a 500ci cadi making a little over 700HP.  With 500 inches you don't even have to try to make hp. I'm not saying it's a sure thing that cadi or Pontiac blocks fail, it's just 1. you don't see many of them taken to high power levels (over 500-600hp+) and 2. just looking at the casting the valley is quite open and the webbing is pretty thin (compared to big block chevy, ford, mopar). If people are building OEM cadi and ponti blocks to higher power levels then I think that's great. I just don't see it hardly ever at the drag strip in the years I've been doing this. They're usually all aftermarket blocks.
  • DrewLSsix

If I remember correctly, it was originally intended to be put in Lincolns to compete with the 500 Cadillac, but the gas crisis hit and they scrapped the idea of putting it in factory cars and sold it as a marine/crate engine.

I dare you. the advantage American cars have is that its super cheap to make huge power because they were so limited from the factory. slow burning torque monsters.

    Jimmy870 2 года назад Ever see the maintenance costs of a Euro car? Not practical at all. Japanese cars can be more practical, but the gas mileage for how small their engines are is dissappointing.

  • Kip Amore
    Kip Amore 2 года назад ootdega snark aside, to my way of thinking there is nothing that modern car has that this doesn't. Aside from any hop ups he's made, a stock coronet starts every time, idles fine, handles fine, even stops acceptably even with drums. I drove cars like this all through high school well into my 30s, and aside from intermitent wipers it's fine. It's a car. It was a car then, roads havent changed.

    TheRoadDriverly 2 года назад I mean hey it was free when I got it. Unfortunately I wasn't prepared for that kind of financial burden, a family member died suddenly and then I had a giant money pit. Had a swapped in 350 instead of the factory turd that made noise and nothing else. That thing was fast as shit, though. I think I eventually got it running well enough compared to when I got it but it was still pulling like 8 city 12 highway. The 30 city/45 highway my Civic pulls is seems almost too good to be true in comparison.
  • Kip Amore
    Kip Amore 2 года назад TheRoadDriverly The "hopped up" is what killed your mileage. But bone stock that car propably got 14 city and 20 highway. That's about the same as a modern F150 or Tacoma or any SUV. That Coronet, bone stock, probably gets 13/18.
  • Sean Hart
    Sean Hart 2 года назад ledzeppelin27 It sucks by modern standards sure, but you could daily drive this if you really wanted to. Tons of passenger room, more than enough torque to get up hills, auto gearbox makes city driving a breeze, not much driver assistance so you have to pay attention when driving it, and finally the trunk. You don't fully realize how fuck huge the trunks were in these old cars unless you see it in person. I'm not joking when I say you could fit two dead bodies and a week's worth of groceries in the trunk of this beast.
  • TheRoadDriverly
    TheRoadDriverly 2 года назад My first car was a hopped up 85 El Camino (this was 2012). Loved that piece of junk. 330 at the crank, incredibly comfortable, sounded like sex (there's a vid on my channel actually) Unfortunately 6mpg city and monthly breakdowns isn't exactly an appealing aspect when you have to pay for food, medical expenses, rent, etc. Plus, a car like my Elco simply couldn't keep up with the Texas heat anymore.
  • Kip Amore
    Kip Amore 2 года назад Oh you young whippersnappers. You have no idea what you are talking about. That car is perfectly livable as a daily - millions of people dailied them in the day, after all. I'd be delighted to daily that right now, carbs and all. The mileage is the same as a modern SUV (look it up, bitches...same). What you don't know is just how comfortable and quiet a car WITHOUT a sway bar and WITHOUT radials is. You can drink coffee without a lid in a car like this. Yeah it won't carve up a canyon, but I don't WANT to carve up a canyon - I just want to squirt light to light. You youngins also don't know how comfortable it is to hang your arm on the window, and have low back seats. Or how comfortable a real bench seat is. Or how magical a pillarless coupe is. Because of the wing windows, air conditioning isn't needed unless you live in Nevada. You also don't know how nice it is not to have that fucking seatbelt cutting into your neck. Or the joy of sitting 3 wide in front, 3 wide in back.
  • ledzeppelin27

  • ledzeppelin27
    ledzeppelin27 2 года назад Vincent Baelde-Millar I'm going to explain this slowly because apparently I have to. the dude said I wouldn't spend time and money building a 50 year old car. I proved otherwise with a video on my channel. being a burnout video is irrelevant, but it's the only video I have of my car. make sense now? do you need me to spell anything else out for you or some context clues.
  • ootdega
    ootdega 2 года назад (изменено) It's a 67 American car. It's floaty. Everything was. That has nothing to do with the handling or steering. You can have a floaty squishy rolly land boat and still outcorner a Civic if you do it right. Especially because Civic owners like to ruin their car's handling via Ebay. Everyone needs to grow up and stop being so asshurt over things. Jesus fucking Christ.

    01trsmar 2 года назад Coronet was not floaty,these are tight awesome handling cars...This one is in need of work..steering box I would guess and the front end sits too high,need to adjust the torsion bars..5 minutes you can raise/lower the front of the car..It sits too high,front fender needs to be on top of the tire then it handles like its on rails...even Big Chryslers handle awesome these years,not floaty,steering is precise !

  • Sedan57Chevy
    Sedan57Chevy 2 года назад Take a Japanese car from 1967 and it'll ride and handle and be just as practical. You trade fuel economy and some semblance of handling for straight line speed and a lot of usable space for passengers or cargo. People compare Japanese and Euro cars from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s to American Cars of the 50s and 60s. It's 2017 and every single 50 year old car 'sucks'. That's why people have preserved cars like this Cornet for half a century.
  • ootdega
    ootdega 2 года назад (изменено) You certainly wouldn't spend several months and thousands of dollars building one that's 50 years old. It also has a 5 liter small block. Not a 7.2 liter big block. It also has 4 doors. Don't let that whole "logic" thing hit you too hard though.

    Matt Farah's Million Mile Lexus 2 года назад I don't think anyone in the world gets into a '67 Coronet with a 440 and expects it to handle anything like a newer car or have any kind of road feel. Drum brakes, pencil-thin swaybars and torsion bar suspension aren't of this era. That said, these cars are a blast to drive, you just enjoy them for what they are, and not what they can't be.

  • nlpnt

  • 504RoadTrips
    504RoadTrips 2 года назад Their idea of small and mid-sized were a bit askew. In 1975, the first B-Body with the Chrysler name was the Cordoba, and it was advertised as the first small Chrysler. Compared to the A-Body Dodge Dart of the same year, they were huge. But I guess they were comparing them to the big C-Body land yachts, and they were indeed dwarfed by them.

  • osp80
    osp80 2 года назад dodge/plymouth had a shit load of mid sized cars. their "full size" cars debuted in '62 as a b-body that includes the car here. their actual mid size styling didn't go over well with many buyer so they released the real full sized c-body in 1965. the smaller "mid sized full size" mopars were great for racing though. you had the full sized dart, savoy, belvedere, coronet, 330, polara, fury, and satellite just between 62 to 65.
