PROJECT MISSION: This page has been created to chronicle the restoration of one of Dodge's finest muscle car performance automobiles, the 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T. This project has a start date of Feb 9th 2004, and the car itself was a gift from Robert H.Mitchell, III (RHM III) to his father, Robert H.Mitchell, Jr. (RHMJr.) in celebration of his 60th birthday. 

Here you will find a complete timeline of events, "how to" restoration tips, classic pictures from 1968, a list of leveraged resources, and all things related to the 1968 Coronet.
