Vehicle Description

The words “Hemi Dodge” ring with authority in the automotive performance world, with a heritage that dates back to the 1950’s. So Maxmotive presents this 1955 Coronet Custom with a 331 Hemi beneath the bonnet. Those glorious valve covers with “Chrysler FirePower” stamped on them will quicken the pulse of any performance enthusiast or historian. And that’s before you fire it up. When you do, the big motor speaks with authority, just in case every head hasn’t turned when you arrived at the show. It’s fed through an Edelbrock carb on an aggressive Hot Heads aluminum intake. It looks great underneath the custom air cleaner by the way. A complete MSD ignition system – including the distributor – gets everything started. In true hot rodding tradition, the transmission and rear end are the best from the “other” manufacturers. A Turbo 350 automatic and Ford 9-inch limited slip rear make up a worthy driveline team for the Hemi. The car has been tastefully restored with the original body lines and character intact. Deep black PPG basecoat/clearcoat paint shows off the sheetmetal and the body prep. It was stripped to bare metal and meticulously messaged before the color coats were applied. To further highlight the paint, the bumpers and all the trim were re-chromed. With the chrome Ridler wheels, the effect is striking. Sabatini Coachworks in Nazareth PA (the home of Mario Andretti. Just sayin’) stitched up a phenomenal custom red leather and suede interior with bucket seats. Prepare for war with the unique morningstar shifter. A modern but classic-style 3-spoke steering wheel feels and looks great. The modern/classic theme continues with the gauges. All the gauges are Auto Meter except for the original speedometer. You’ll also notice the tasteful hand-applied pinstriping by Coopstriping. Everything rides on a FatMan subframe with stainless upper and lower control arms. More modern upgrades include power rack and pinion steering and power front disc brakes so the driveability keeps up with the massive Hemi power. A killer stance comes courtesy of an Air Ride suspension that allows you to go almost to the ground up to near stock ride height. You read it right. You can have a slammed in the dirt Hemi hot rod with a brand and period correct power plant, foot-deep black paint, plus modern driveability and sound system. Cars equipped like this can be priced two and even three times as much. And you know the time and effort that would be required to build it yourself. But this one is done. And it’s available for you now at Maxmotive.

We recommend that all buyers who are unable to view a vehicle in person have a pre-purchase inspection done prior to purchase. Inspections can be performed by an independent party selected by the buyer.
