Back in the 1990s and 2000s, it seemed there was some sort of competition among the automakers to see who could run the most boost through their engines.
Well, the same phenomena occurred in the late 1960s, except instead of forced induction, manufacturers were battling over pure displacement. That is how the Dodge Coronet 440 R/T came about.
It all started with the original Mustang’s 289 cubic-inch V8. This engine started the displacement war with Chevy and Mopar, culminating in this, a Coronet 440 R/T. A monstrous 7.21-liter V8 sat under the hood, giving its lucky driver all the torque they would ever need.
Mr. Regular got behind the wheel of the Coronet R/T, and he found out having the torque converter automatic sending power to the rear wheels is a welcome addition. All that low-down power means even breathing on throttle will light the rears up.
Watch the video below to hear more of Mr. Regular’s thoughts in this latest Regular Car Review. I would like to see a ’67 Impala, definitely for comparison sake, and not because I am the Supernatural fan or anything.
