    I'm a Coronet Virgin!

    Hello everyone,
    Last October I drove from home to Philadelphia (800 miles) to purchase a 1965 Coronet 440 4 Dr. Sed..I found it through the e-mail club list at the 62 to 65 Mopar web site. It has 86,000 miles, 318, auto trans, PS, and factory A/C. I trailered it home and as I got close the gas tank sprung a leak.
    So the work began!
    I replaced the tank with the one from my 65 Belvedere ( after painting and lining ) and refurbishing the sending unit.
    Rebuilt the springs, added a second #2 leaf and new anti friction pads, eye and shackle bushings.
    Drilled, drained, tapped and plugged the axle for a lube change.
    Cleaned and repacked axle bearings. Set end play.
    New shocks all around.
    Welded a patch in the left rear inner wheel house (right by the seat back lower hold down clip).
    Pulled transmission and rebuilt (added part throttle KD).
    Rebuilt a 60 amp alternator for the car.
    Bought a new RA electronic distributor and added a HEI module to the bottom of the housing.
    Added a electronic voltage regulator. CONTINUED
