RARE GT LANCER, FACTORY UPGRADED 225CI SLANT 6, BELIEVED TO BE ORIGINAL PAINT!
Rare, interesting, original, and exceptionally affordable, this 1962 Dodge Lancer GT is a showstopper and is sure to attract tons of attention.
Get your survivors awards ready because that glossy black is believed to be original. Then again, it's hard not to get excited about this Lancer, in total. Only on sale for two years, Dodge would get their own version of the Valiant under the Lancer name. And sticking true to the adage that classic Mopar are the rarest of the vintage set, there were only 14,140 of these GT models (with their exclusive hardtop style) produced in 1962. But more than just rarity, when you can find an example like this one, it's time to take notice. The convex grille, wraparound chrome bumpers, plenty of bright trim, and tailfins that give this compact an extended profile, it is a true automotive gem. This car feels highly original right down to the Lancer factory hubcaps.
That blue streak running below the doors and around the cowl on the outside is a cool preview of the interior. That light blue paint matches the door panels, dashboard, and special bucket seats. You can see all of this clearly thanks to the original-style interior remaining in stellar fashion. The driver gets to take full command of this Mopar with the two-spoke blue and chrome steering wheel providing an excellent view of the full panel. Not only does this house the usual pieces like the large speedometer and secondary gauges, but also the heat/defrost controls. Plus, mounted here are the nifty push-button controls for the three-speed automatic transmission.
Lift the hood and see a very honest and original-style engine bay. The big red valve cover, intake, and block really add some aggressive distinction, and the GT model earns this characteristic. It was the top-of-line trim and one of the most expensive Lancers, and it was the only one to get an engine upgrade. So while its siblings received 170ci six-cylinder, this GT model was upgraded to the 225 cubic-inch unit. Dodge claimed these larger powerplants were good for a 40% increase in horsepower, and it is surly felt on the road. The compact and lightweight Lancer GT moves with confidence and pep. In fact, this very American coupe feels a bit European in its manners.
A cool coupe with survivor qualities that's a rare sight at most cruise-ins and events. We bet you're intrigued, and at this affordable price, you're not the only one. So hurry up and call today!
