1970 Dodge Coronet R/T convertible With its wild twin-nostril grille and integrated front bumper, the 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T is one of the most distinctive-looking muscle cars of the era. It’s virtually impossible to mistake the ’70 R/T for anything else—it’s that different.

Mechanically similar to its sibling, the Super Bee, the R/T was equipped with more comfort and appearance features, including a deluxe all-vinyl interior with carpeting, bucket seats and a centre console. Exterior extras included twin hood scoops and matching trim scoops on the rear quarter panels with red-on-chrome R/T badging. Unlike many high-performance muscle cars of the period, the R/T was also offered in an otherwise identical convertible model. A total of 296 1970 R/T convertibles were built with 60 of these destined for export/Canada.

This particular car is one of those Canadian export models and is fitted with the 440 ci Magnum engine and Torqueflite transmission. One of 5 (or 6) promotional models (each white, but with subtle cosmetic differences) these cars were delivered to different dealers in Canada to promote Coronet sales. Only three of these promotional models are currently known to exist, this one, one in Vancouver Island,Canada and one last seen in a scrap yard.
