CLASSIC CARS: Father dissuades teen from buying 1968 Dodge Coronet ... for a while

1969 Dodge Coronet R/T convertible

Just 519 convertible Dodge Coronet R/T models were built to American specifications in the 1968 model year. Automatic transmissions were in 431 of the cars, while the remaining 88 were equipped with four-speed manual transmissions. Even more rare was the floor-mounted console between the bucket seats and the Rallye instrument package.

One of these rare musclecars left the St. Louis assembly plant wearing a coat of bright blue paint with white "bee" stripes stretched across the rear fenders and the width of the trunk lid.
