In year 1966 the Dodge Monaco 500 Hardtop was the most expensive and luxurious model you could get for your buck. This particular example powered by the 383 Magnum V8 engine was sold for $3,604 and is still in fairly original condition. The Mopar has been repainted once, but in its factory Mauve color, the seats were redone, mufflers were changed and that’s pretty much it.
The Mauve 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 current owner is Frank Troost, who is a passionate classic car collector and inherited this beauty several years ago from his brother Robert. He shares some interesting details about the Mopar, shows some cool trunk treats to my frind Lou Costabile and starts up the 383 four barrel motor for you to hear its voice. If that sounds interesting, hit the play button and enjoy the story!
