Details: Less weight is the same as more horsepowerand#44; so imagine the fun you can have with this cool 1967 Dodge Dart GTand#44; which offers both. The compact Dart has a great look and is the ideal candidate for a performance makeoverand#44; and thanks to a 368 cubic inch stroker motorand#44; its got more than enough horsepower to humiliate bigger cars with bigger engines.

For a car that started out as a commuter car designed for economyand#44; 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 scoopand#44; bumblebee stripes on the tailand#44; and subtle V8 badgesand#44; theres exactly nothing subtle about this street brawler. Although the yellow paint doesnt scream at youand#44; 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 rangeand#44; with good gapsand#44; doors that close with a satisfying clickand#44; and no signs of serious issues in its past. The GT got a few upgrades over the base modelsand#44; including the bright trim along the tail paneland#44; something thats irreplaceable so its a good thing this one is in such good shape. The vinyl top is in good orderand#44; 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 newand#44; with nicely done seat coversand#44; new carpetsand#44; 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 factoryand#44; which are augmented by a tach on top of the dash and the usual auxiliary gauges underneath. The gauges are probably originaland#44; so theyre showing some ageand#44; 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 livedand#44; and the fit is perfect so no cutting was required. There arent a lot of optionsand#44; which was the way the Darts were usually ordered (they were designed to be affordable)and#44; but the quality of the work is tangible everywhere you look. You also get a good-sized back seat and a massive trunk thats correctly outfitted with a reproduction mat.

The original 340 cubic inch V8 was no slouch in this lightweight carand#44; but with this one punched out to 368 cubic inchesand#44; its a different story entirely. Its a 1968 block filled with a Scat crank and rodsand#44; a Lunati Voodoo camand#44; 1.6 roller rockersand#44; and a set of Indy LAX heads. Up top theres a Barry Grant 4-barrel carburetor on an Edelbrock intake manifold and a complete MSD ignition system lights it up. Its nicely detailed with finned valve covers and Hemi Orange paint on the block itselfand#44; and you can tell that the guy who built it knew what he was doing. Theres 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 backand#44; 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 handlingand#44; a big dose of torqueand#44; and a cool lookand#44; this Dart deserves a closer look if youre a Mopar fan serious about going fastand#44; especially at this price! Call now!
