    I disagree that the car was ANY bigger in ANY of the trim packages! The base car was a 1969 Dodge CORONET (spelt correctly) and ALL were of the same size and wheelbase, the weight however was different, even with the same engine as the intake on the underside of the hood weighed more then that of the SAME car without it…. Then you had the engine option the 440 as well as the 426 Hemi. The same car with the 426 Hemi weighed MORE then the same car with the 440…..
