There were 483 made in '69. Of those, 317 were 440/automatics sold in the US.

Welcome to the site and please post some photos of your car. Worthless Without Pi

My advice is to treasure this beautiful piece of Mopar history. ;)

I track info on 69 Coronet R/T convertibles (about 75 on file) and would be interested in hearing more about your car.
As stated above, its probably one of about 317 made for sale in the US.
B5 is probably the most common color found on R/T convertibles.
It appears to have nice options but, frankly, nothing that really pops out to distinguish it from other R/T 'verts.
Cruise and the 8-track would be fairly low percentage options.
Stripe delete isn't that common but it's not 'rare' either.
Dash should be black pebble, not wood grain like a Charger SE.
Standard hood.

More pictures? :)

Here's mine:

I was told at a mopar event in Tennessee that the car was probably a dealership showroom car. The rubber bumper guards are on the front and rear. The few cars I've seen with bumper guards only have them on the front. It also has the chrome on the wheel wells and chrome piece that runs under the door. The tach is in the dash.

I sure like that white :)

Here is my R/T my friend owns it now and restored it, I saved it from a junkyard crusher. 440-auto pw,pb,cruise,a/c, and more hours from being crushed and bought it for 1,200.00




Lets see some pics Jonathan and welcome

What triggered the showroom car statement?

About 1/3 of the cars had bumper guards on the front and 1/3 had them on the back. I don't know how you would find out how many had both.
Chrome molding pieces were standard on R/T verts.
Tic-toc-tach was standard with optional Rallye dash in the R/T.

Sounds like a nice car.

The showroom statement was just what I was told. It was an older gentleman who said dealerships would sometimes order them with unique options to put them on their showroom floor. I would post a couple pictures I have on my phone but I'm not exactly sure how to. I dont have a computer just using my phone.

Welcome Jonathan, I under stand what you're talking about, down at Harold Meadow Dodge here in my town (no longer in business) had a 67 R/t in red/black interior, 440, 4speed on the showroom floor, it had a console, front and rear bumper guards, am/fm radio, reverb, rear speaker and head rests! I ask one of the guys there about it and was told they ordered it in like that to create more traffic in the showroom.
