1965 Dodge Coronet 500 History The Coronet was a full-size car from Dodge in the 1950s, initially the division''s highest trim line but, starting in 1955, the lowest trim line. In the 1960s, the name was transferred to Dodge''s mid-size entry. After a brief absence, the Coronet name was attached to the former full-size models in 1965 to become Dodge''s intermediate-sized car. For 1965, Dodge sold slightly over 209,000 units, making the Coronet the most popular model sold by Dodge that year. Trim levels initially were base Coronet including a Deluxe version, Coronet 440 and Coronet 500. The base Coronet and Deluxe were available as two-door sedans, four-door sedans and station wagons. For 1965 only, Dodge also sold only 101 units of a modified wheelbase version of the base Coronet two-door sedan and 440 hardtop used for NHRA drag racing. The top of the Coronet line-up was the Coronet 500 and was available only as a two-door hardtop or convertible in 1965. Slightly over 33,300 units were sold in 1965 and included as standard, a V8 engine (273 cubic inches), exterior trim and badging, bucket seats, padded dash and chrome floor console. Coronets were manufactured at Chrysler''s Los Angeles assembly plant and at Lynch Road assembly plant in Detroit. VIN W455177758 Airzona car, built at the Los Angeles, California plant.
