SERIOUSLY FUN TO DRIVE DART GT! PROFESSIONALLY BUILT 368 V8, AUTO, MADE 2 CRUISE
Less weight is the same as more horsepower, so imagine the fun you can have with this cool 1967 Dodge Dart GT, which offers both. The compact Dart has a great look and is the ideal candidate for a performance makeover, and thanks to a 368 cubic inch stroker motor, it's got more than enough horsepower to humiliate bigger cars with bigger engines.
For a car that started out as a commuter car designed for economy, the Dart does a pretty good impersonation of a muscle car. Carrying all the usual Mopar performance design cues like a blacked out hood with a giant scoop, bumblebee stripes on the tail, and subtle V8 badges, there's exactly nothing subtle about this street brawler. Although the yellow paint doesn't scream at you, the combination of black graphics and black vinyl top against the yellow paint looks great. Paint and bodywork are extremely well done for a car in this price range, with good gaps, doors that close with a satisfying click, and no signs of serious issues in its past. The GT got a few upgrades over the base models, including the bright trim along the tail panel, something that's irreplaceable so it's a good thing this one is in such good shape. The vinyl top is in good order, showing off the handsome roofline and wonderfully funky concave rear window.
The Dart GT also looks the part of a performance car thanks to a pair of black bucket seats with the shifter living between them. It appears that most of the interior is new, with nicely done seat covers, new carpets, and door panels with correct Dart GT emblems. The steering wheel is standard 1967 Mopar and it got a pretty comprehensive set of gauges from the factory, which are augmented by a tach on top of the dash and the usual auxiliary gauges underneath. The gauges are probably original, so they're showing some age, but the speedo is remarkably clear and bright. A modernf AM/FM radio is tucked into the dash where the factory AM radio might have lived, and the fit is perfect so no cutting was required. There aren't a lot of options, which was the way the Darts were usually ordered (they were designed to be affordable), but the quality of the work is tangible everywhere you look. You also get a good-sized back seat and a massive trunk that's correctly outfitted with a reproduction mat.
The original 340 cubic inch V8 was no slouch in this lightweight car, but with this one punched out to 368 cubic inches, it's a different story entirely. It's a 1968 block filled with a Scat crank and rods, a Lunati Voodoo cam, 1.6 roller rockers, and a set of Indy LAX heads. Up top there's a Barry Grant 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock intake manifold and a complete MSD ignition system lights it up. It's nicely detailed with finned valve covers and Hemi Orange paint on the block itself, and you can tell that the guy who built it knew what he was doing. There's a new power brake booster and master cylinder for the front disc brakes and an aluminum radiator up front. The 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt 2000 miles ago and with a set of 3.91 gears out back, this car is insanely punchy off the line. Long-tube headers feed a custom exhaust system with cut-outs and it sits perfectly on those Torque Thrust wheels and staggered 215/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear performance radials.
With superior handling, a big dose of torque, and a cool look, this Dart deserves a closer look if you're a Mopar fan serious about going fast, especially at this price! Call now!
