After a brief absence (1959-1965), the Coronet name was attached to the former fullsize models in 1965 to become Dodge's mid-sized car. It received a redesign in 1966, and a facelift in 1967. Larger, rebodied models emerged in 1968, with coke-bottle styling. A powerful 375 hp 440 model appeared for the 1967 Coronet R/T, upped to 390 hp with 3 2 barrel carburetors on the "Six Pak" version of 1969-1/2. Two-door hardtop and convertible models were part of the range.
Sales of the Coronet were fairly low from this point onwards, with around 80-90,000 produced each year through 1973 (compared with 196,242 as recently as 1968), due both to the fuel crisis and to a proliferation of Dodge and Plymouth models, and the growing effect of overlap with the other Chrysler Corporation brands.
1976 was the final year for the name; for the 1977 model year, Coronets were renamed Monaco.
