New front-end styling was the big story for
the ’70 R/T. The grille was split in two, the rear flanks gained nonfunctional
scoops, and the taillamps were revised.
The 1970 Dodge Coronet R/T 440 featured a new grille
and decorative side scoops.
In retrospect, the 1967-70 Coronet R/Ts balanced luxury appointments with the brute performance of Chrysler’s RB-Block 440 Wedge or 426 Hemi. A cut above the Super Bee, they offered more creature comforts for less than the cost of a Charger.
