    • 3). Install the R/T and the Super Bee badging on the hood, the front quarter panels and in the interior of the Coronet.

    Other Hot Rod Options

    • 1). Rebuild your Mopar V-8 with aluminum heads, intake and carburetor to shed weight and increase performance.

    • 2). Install a 727 transmission with a two-stage shift kit for efficient shifts and increased power transfer from the engine to the rear wheels.

    • 3). Mount aftermarket Rally- or Crager-style wheels.

    • 4). Integrate an electronic ignition system to improve spark in your Mopar engine.

    • 5). Replace the stock hood of your Coronet with a cowl-induction hood or a hood that features a ram air induction scoop. There are numerous aftermarket manufacturers that supply these hoods for every model year of Coronet.
