Classic Spotlight: the Dodge CoronetJun 10, 2015
The Dodge Coronet, whose name translates as little crown, enjoyed quite the long reign, spanning seven generations of American automotive history.
This was Dodge’s postwar baby, designed in 1949 and released during the 1950s and beyond, right through the 1980s.
Just as the Coronet rolled from one automotive generation into another, if you were a kid in the 1980s, you could have been driving a newer model of the same car your grandfather was driving. Simultaneously.
A royal car for sure, you can still find used Dodge Coronets by contacting your neighborhood Miami Dodge dealer.
In order to fully appreciate the reign of the Coronet, let’s take a look at the generational breakdown.
The Coronet was the top of the postwar styles released by Dodge, with its lesser siblings, the Wayfarer and Meadowbrook not too far behind.
