Last weekend I had the grill out of my 67 Coronet 500. I am putting in a tranny cooler and had to weld in some brackets.
Anyway.... I was looking at how dingy and cruddy my grill Looked... I painted it using that fake chrome spray paint. It looks good. Yet not earth shattering.

Here is the crazy idea... Lets Swap out the Coronet grill for a Charger grill with hide away head lights?
I bet that would look so cool!

To do it proper you should change your front bumper to match or you will have four running/turn lights :0

All 1967 Coronets built in Mexico for the 67 model year in both the 440 and 500 series were built with the Charger hidden headlight grille. Only 4 door sedans and 2 door hardtops were built. Over the years, a few 66 & 67 Coronets have had the Charger grille installed.

This sad looking Mexican 67 Coronet with the bent up Charger grille, is the only 67 I found for sale in Mexico today. Usually you can find a few 67's for sale in Mexico on Autoclassico.

Just my opinion, but the Charger grille and wheel well openings are 2 of the best looking modifications one can do to a 66-7 Coronet..

Just add the 66 to the others you're leaving to me in your will. Oh, and just a suggestion, but if you start gifting them to me one per year now, it would avoid alot of inheritance tax later.

I wanted to put a charger grille in my 66 coronet but they cost more and are harder to find in good shape than the stock grille, plus there is a lot of parts. Never found one at a good price so I cleaned the stock grille and in it went.

In the 80s I was junkyard scrounging and found a Charger that had the rocker mouldings that I was missing and it also had nice headrest to replace my junk ones. But I noticed the grill was cherry and I thought how cool that would look. I never did it though.
