    Hi there folks. Trying to ID the year and model of this Dodge.

    The car belonged to my Father in Law (middle picture) when he was stationed in Japan (Navy). Over the years when he brought up this car he would say it was a Satellite with a V8.

    Unfortunately, he passed in February and this will be the first Father's Day my Wife will have without her Daddy (she is a Daddy's Girl). This Sunday our church is having it's annual car show/Dad Fest so I thought I would paint up a frame to match the Barracuda and have a picture of him with his Dodge sitting on top of the air cleaner to show some respects and maybe surprise my Lady and help her get through a rough day.

    Anyways, any info about this car would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Seabee

    It looks more like basic 1968 Dodge Coronet!

        By the round side marker lights, I'd say it's 68

          I was thinking Coronet as well, but the side molding and headlights look different.

          After searching some 1968 Coronets I found a few with that side molding. Thanks for the help guys.

            68 coronet 440. Looks like a pretty basic model.

              68 Coronet 440 model. Hardtop.

              Don't see 383 badges or plug wires in front of air cleaner- likely 318.

              I'd drive it

                68 Coronet 440 - that's the model, not the engine size.
