DESCRIPTIONIf you're looking for a classic car that hardly anyone will have seen you should take a look at this neat Dodge. The 1953 Dodge Coronet Eight Convertible was the collectible soft-top model in the series that ushered in Dodge's first V-8. The famous Red Ram was essentially a scaled-down version of the Chrysler Hemi, with smooth manifolding and porting, jumbo valves set well apart, excellent thermal efficiency, and considerable high-performance potential. The V-8 cars performed well, yet offered good economy. One returned 23.4 mpg in the 1953 Mobilgas Economy Run, while other Red Rams were in the process of breaking 196 North American stock car speed records at Bonneville. 4,100 convertibles were built. 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive. New white convertible power top. Beautiful red and gray interior. The interior looks great including the dash and steering wheel. You will not believe how nice the black paint is. Chrome is beautiful. Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with wide white tires. The engine runs so quiet. Another thing I like about this car is its size...it's not a giant. You will like the way the Hemi runs. Very smooth and quite. The working overdrive will give more MPG. The radio does not work. Heater controls are not hooked up. power top works fine.
