BIG 360 V8, AUTO, GOOD VALUE PRICED CLASSIC CRUISER W/ A HEAVYWEIGHT DRIVETRAIN!
The best way to standout in the vintage car crowd is to find an uncommon classic with a big motor. Not only will this 1965 Dodge Dart GT get you all the attention you want, but it also does it at a value price.
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 maroon paint on this car looks out-of-the-world in the sunlight. It's the perfect framework for the chrome, and like any good 1960s coupe, there's plenty of it. Best of all, this increasingly hard to find brightwork is compete - from the Dodge hood emblem, to triple side ports, to the DART letters on the rear fender.
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 gold inside and out, but it has been switched over to the more modern maroon and black combination during a restoration. The door panels, carpets, and dash were all so expertly handled that they remain in pristine condition today. Plus, there is a center console for the automatic transmission, which is the hallmark of a true Dart GT. The seating has been updated to a cloth and vinyl two-tone combination 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 new GT steering wheel, and everyone gets an AM/FM/cassette player. But you might not want to use the radio at all. Keen eyes will notice the big Autometer tachometer, and triple set of new gauges all set in the middle of the dash. This is your first indication that this Dart might have a big motor, and a raucous exhaust note.
Wedged underneath the hood is a 360 cubic-inch Mopar V8. This is particularly special because those who know Darts remember that a motor this large would not be a factory option until the more sedately-styled next generation. In this car, it has been upgraded with performance parts such as an Edelbrock intake, fined valve covers, an Edelbrock air cleaner, and Hooker headers. All of this combined means this little dart pumps out a massive 325 hp. When you fire up this monster motor, the dual exhaust makes a roar that many might not believe is coming from this compact coupe...but Mopar fans know better. Even with all its street-eating power, this Dart is still a comfortable way to get around thanks to an automatic transmission and Hankook Optimo tires. This modern rubber provides exceptional all-weather grip on this classic, and the taller rear size gives this coupe a bit of an aggressive forward leaning stance.
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!!
