1957 Dodge Coronet, The Engine is the tried, tested and reliable 230 Cubic Inch flat-head six-cylinder that produced 138 horsepower. with a single barrel Stromberg carburetor, producing 103 horsepower. The stock Dodge Coronet was a smooth-running car, and the six-cylinder engine could power the car to 90 mph. Chrysler’s advanced new three speed Torqueflite automatic transmission joined the two-speed Powerflite option. Both transmissions utilized “push-button selectors” on the instrument cluster/dashboard. The entire line up of Chrysler Corporation cars were upgraded in 57. Virgil Exner led the design team. The 1957 Dodge Coronet received a drastic new design. “Forward Look” styling, dubbed “swept wing”, featured tall, sweeping fins, copious amounts of chrome trim, wraparound windshields, and exhaust-style taillights. The cars were also long, low, and wide, distinct from any other car manufacturers were manufacturing. Featuring several exterior changes: new dual headlamps & dual hood ornaments. The Dodge Coronet of this era and future years were terrific sellers and sought by many. Superior handling over other '50s cars. Torsion-Aire Ride (torsion bar) front suspension and a heavy-duty suspension with heavy-duty shock absorbers and a heavy-duty leaf-sprung rear. A 3.73:1 rear axle was standard. Paint and body. 2 tone Dodge Tropical Coral and Glacier White. Upper and lower 2-piece chrome bumper. The top dipped down allowing a nice front and center space for branding, and the lower piece was split in half by the license plate. Hooded (The top of the fender came over the top of the single headlight and the fog lamp). Beautiful lines, body fit and gap plus the alternating 2 colors made a sleek & elegant body design. Your eyes naturally follow one shape into another. Very cutting-edge look that put the other big 2 on notice. Interior: A leather topped, almost houndstooth, like fabric in the middle and leather siding on the bench seat were a focal point of the interior. Power windows were a new standard feature. The fourth generation of styling and mechanical improvements was introduced in 1957 and would continue through 1959. Dash mounted rear view mirror. 2 tone steel dash Gray on top and repeated Glacier White on the face, etc. Original push button 80 M radio. Once again, this is a museum car and whether the radio works or not would require a new battery. The speedometer was wide and centered with the steering wheel and underneath was a blacked out, chrome trimmed gauge cluster. A black painted glove box door created an elegant symmetry. Red horizontal stitched leathers door panel tops with a vertical lined trim strip split the Red from the Black bottom of the door panel. Longer than typical door levers provided both form & function as this is a large car with large heavier doors. Stopping power was by 12-inch diameter drums, and 13 optional rear axles were available, ranging from 2.92:1 through 6.17:1. Suspension upgrades included a Torsion-Air Ride setup in the front, along with heavy-duty shocks, and a heavy-duty leaf-sprung rear. 7.60x15 tires on 15x8-inch wheels, with wide white walls.

Thank you for your interest. This vehicle is either classic, antique, exotic, super rare, or all of the above. This vehicle is on consignment from a very large collection of vehicles. They are being sold as museum quality cars which means they may not run or drive and may not have run or driven in numerous years. The vehicles are of a condition where they would be on display in a museum. As museum pieces we were required to disconnect or remove batteries and drain fuel tanks. Once again, these vehicles have not been driven, or even started in quite some time.
