Less than 100 feet from the forlorn Hemi Road Runner sits this stripped Coronet. At first, it looked to be a lowly Slant Six or 318 shell, but we know Larry Hauptman better than that. Yep, it’s a ’68 Hemi Coronet R/T. The pale yellow was sprayed over its original B5 Bright Blue Metallic and “bumble bee” tail stripe. The Coronet R/T languished in the shadow of the sensational new “Coke bottle” ’68 Charger R/T, and sales proved it. The ’68 Coronet R/T production was 10,558, versus 17,665 for the Charger R/T. Both shared the 375hp 440 Magnum as standard equipment. One detail that bolstered the Coronet R/T’s market position was the fact it was available as a convertible. Super Bees and Chargers were fixed-roof-only propositions in ’68.
