GREAT V8 MUSCLE CAR, 318CI MOTOR, AUTO TRANS, POWER STEERING, FRONT DISCS!
The best way to standout in the vintage car crowd is to find an uncommon classic with a big motor. Not only will this 1966 Dodge Dart get you all the attention you want, but it also does it at a value price. With a bright red paint job and classic Mopar design, this little Dart is sure to turn heads everywhere it goes.
Dodge was particularly bold with this generation Dart by giving it the pod styling that came from Chrysler's futuristic turbine-powered cars. Today the design has appreciated into a retro-cool reminder of the jet age. That's a good thing because the red finish on this car looks fantastic in the sunlight. Perfect it is not, but at this price a driver-quality paint job that shines as nice as this is all one could ask for. It's the perfect framework for the chrome and brightwork, and like any good 1960s coupe, there's plenty of it. Best of all, this increasingly hard to find brightwork is compete - from the front grille, to the side ports on the front fenders, and to the molding that wraps around the car. Take a step back and take it all in, this is a beautiful car!
One look at the interior, and you'll know there has been some money invested in making this Dart feel right. This car was originally red inside and out, but it has been switched over to the more modern gray and black combination inside during a restoration. The door panels, carpets, and dash were all so expertly handled that they remain in great condition today. Plus, there is a center console that splits the modern buckets, a modern convenience the driver will quickly be thankful for. The seating has been updated to a gray cloth that is much more stylish than what the factory was offering. More importantly, the new high-back bucket seats are a much more comfortable way to cruise on a Saturday night. The driver gets a newer 3-spoke steering wheel, and everyone gets a Pioneer AM/FM/iPod compatible stereo to blast tunes through. But you might not want to use the radio at all, and instead listen to the rumble of the V8 under the hood. Keen eyes will notice the array of white-face gauges embossed in the custom bezel that now sits in the dash, and a matching tachometer is installed underneath the dash, centered for a clear view for the driver. This is your first indication that this Dart isn't just some six-bang grocery-getter. Out back is a very spacious trunk with plenty of room for car show accessories, finished off nicely with a reproduction mat.
The 318 V8 under the hood means this car is no slouch, providing plenty of pop to move this little B-body around. OK, it's not a big block screamer, but there's plenty of torque at any speed and it feels like there's a cam tucked in there to give it a little extra oomph. From the chrome Holley air cleaner to the blue paint on the block, it has a very tidy look, although it is not currently dressed for show. The giant aluminum radiator dominates the engine bay, but if you look closely you'll see blue valve covers, a Weiand intake, and an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb. More recently it was given a new dual master cylinder, and the motor runs and drives great, and stops just as it should. The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission snaps off gear changes without hesitating, and the original 8.75-inch rear end carries street-friendly gears. The dual exhaust sounds fantastic thanks to a pair of rumbling Flowmaster mufflers that provide the perfect note for the 318 up front. Chrome Keystone wheels wrapped in 195/60/14 (front) and 205/60/15 (rear) blackwall radials round out the list of street-ready features.
Chrysler always produced fewer cars than the others in The Big Three. So now you're looking at a lower volume classic that offers big speed for little money. There's no better way to define value. Call now!!
