1965 Dodge Coronet

1965 DODGE CORONET RETURNS
The Coronet had a long history with Dodge, dating all the way back to 1949 when the Coronet was one of Dodge’s first post-war designs. It served through 4 generations, as a full-sized car until 1959. Then, the Coronet nameplate went away for several years. But when it returned in 1965, it wasn’t as a full-sized car anymore. Now it was an intermediate, or what we call today a mid-sized car, based on Chrysler’s new B-body platform. It had clean lights, and was big and boxy just like a mid-60s car was supposed to be, and it sold very well, 209,000 units in its first year, and a home run for Dodge.
1965 DODGE CORONET MODELS
They came in 3 flavors, the base Coronet, the Coronet 440 and the top-of-the-line Coronet 500. The full range of engines were available on all trim levels. Coronets came in a wide range of body styles: 2-door Couple, 2-door Hardtop, 2-door Convertible, 4-door Sedan and 4-door Wagon. The 500-series was only available Hardtop and Convertible form. The mid-line 440 could be ordered at a Hardtop, Convertible or Wagon. The 440 designation had nothing to do with the engine displacement, it was purely coincidental, and referred to an earlier Polara series.

The performance engines started with the 383 big block V8 with both 2- and 4-barrel carburetors, and the 426 Wedge (the 426 wouldn’t become a Hemi until 1966).
