green with black vynl top and buckets with center armrest, front seats are immaculate but backs could use some work! good carpet all through out and just minor dents and some surface rust on her, but all in all she is deffinitly worth every penny i paid, and a big thanks goes to the elderly women that held it for me! even got perfect tires with white walls all the way around only missin some trim on the wheels wells! the undercarrage is yet to be inspected but i speculate that its in better condition my first coronet!
OK! im finally about to start drivin the coronet again and im selling the 76 beetle, and im gettin another 73 coronet that green with black vynl top and green interior with my favorite the 318 engine! :D:D:D
I SHOULD HAVE PICS UP BY SATURDAY!
Also check my 76 beetle!
STARTING TO STRIP THE CORONET OF ITS TRIM AND CHROME BODY ACCENTS AND SOON THE VINYL TOP AND ALL TRIM FOR THE BODY WORK!
BODY WORK COMING SOON!!
TOOK THE TRIM OFF AND I THINK IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD BUT IM NOT SURE WHETHER I LIKE IT BETTER WITH OR WITHOUT??
CLEANED THE ENGINE AND WILL PAINT THE VALVE COVERS SOON BUT LAST TIME I TOOK THEM OFF I BROKE THE FAR RIGHT BOLT IN THE HEAD AND HAD TO TAP IT OUT AND USE BIGGER BOLT SO NOW IM WORRIED THAT IT WONT GO BACK ON RIGHT IF I MESS WITH IT AGAIN?
the only thing i can think that is making all the tappin would be the lifters or a bent push rod, so i will check that out next, but besides that SHES RUNNIN GREAT! LOOK AT THE VIDEOS ABOVE PLEASE!!
well scratch the seats i had ready for the coronet, i gotta find some more now.. so if anyone knows of tan bucket seats i can get cheap lemme know?
SIDE SHOT! STILL NEED MORE TIRE ON THE BACK ONCE I GET POSI'S
I THINK THEY FIT VERY NICELY!!!???
while i did the breaks i thought i should put the new wheels on too!! off a 80's ford ranger! cleaned up and painted nicely! 15's with lower profile tires on both front and back but i want more tire on the back soon.

original coronet rims and hubcaps still on till tomorrow :D
AFTER I SET THE TIMIN!! and adjusted the fuel to air mixture screws!
Before i set the timin!!! lol it ran out of gas in this vid, which is good cuz that gas was pretty old..
Found wat my little tickin noise is! i believe its a lifter but we'll see and ima set the timin and see wat that helps!
if u could, please rate my coronet wat u honestly think of her and the potential of my project restomod! i like to know wat yall think! thanks for stoppin by!
hah just a cell phone pic while cruisin, she was my daily driver until the power steering went out, it was hit by a hit and run while i was at work, and she hit a sign on the passenger side;( now the bug is the daily driver!
she needs a new top really bad too and will be gettin one with the body work but ill have to get that surface rust out from under the old top first:/
as u can see the paint isnt that bad except for some spots that are normally wear and tear from over the years, oh and the huge dent in the door!
my coronet is on the other side of my little bro's tricked out s10.
this pic doesnt do the car justice AT ALL, she needs a good washin, but im glad to say shes gettin paint and body work real soon!
IM HOPIN THE FRONT SWAY BAR WILL BE MY SAVIOR FOR THE FRONT END BEIN SO LOOSE AND ALL OVER THE ROAD.. IF U KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS, I COULD USE SOME HELP! THANKS
ALSO FIXED THE ORIGINAL POWER STEERING PUMP TODAY! TOOK IT OFF AND TORE IT DOWN, CLEANED THE HOSES OUT AND THEY WERE FILLED WITH FILTH AND WAT NOT! HAD A PAIN GETTIN IT BACK ON THO BUT IT WORKS GREAT NOW..
The exhaust sounds great .. i will have a video soon as i can get a good one done!
SHE NEEDS A NEW VINYL TOP AND SOME DENT REPAIR!
THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THE INTERIOR IS THE FRONT BENCH SEAT! IM THINKIN OF GOIN TO BUCKETS THO.. NOT SURE YET..
WELL CARPET COULD BE PUT IN TOO THO..
THIS IS MY DOG MOJO!
HE HELPS OUT ALOT!
I TRUELY DO OWE CREDIT TO MY BRO DAVE FOR HELPIN WITH GET THE EXHAUST BACK ON TO THE MANIFOLDS.. A REAL PAIN IN THE ASS WITH ONLY SMALL JACK STANDS AND ONE 1973 BUMPER JACK!
NEW: I GOT SOME LEAF SPRING HELPERS TODAY AND THREW THEM ON RIGHT AFTER I PUT NEW MANIFOLD GASKETS ON AND THAT SOLVED 90% OF MY LEAKAGE PROBLEMS!
NEW GASKETS, THERE WERENT ANY ON BEFORE! I THINK THEY DISINTIGRATED OVER TIME SINCE THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN 35 YEARS OLD LOL!
BEFORE AND AFTER THE LEAF SPRINGS!
THESE PICS WERE TAKIN ABOUT A YEAR OR SO APART BUT U CAN SEE THE DIFFERENCE IN THE RIDE STANCE!
Update: took the stock manifolds off and they were leakin bad.. im thinkin either flowtech headers or hooker.. cuz i already have true duals!
im plannin on puttin some cragars on her later these came off a chevy and dont fit.. FOR SALE!
i took the cover off of her and took a good look at the dents and body work needed..
the hit and run is wat got me so down, i parked her and got somethin cheap on gas!
basically a pretty straight body.. no rust except for the chassis wich has substantial amounts of rust which helped my dicision to park her for a while!
i think i need to find another chassis for a 70's b body that i can put my body on!
she is still my favorite car of all time when i get her back to how i want her!
sorry for the poor pics.. all these were takin with my camera phone i will get some with the digital soon!
she needs trim all around wich i can get off a parts car close by!
gotta love that front end.. she is still beautiful!!
