If you follow the site then this Dart might look familiar. That’s because it’s one of my cars! You can read more about the day we bought it here. Unfortunately, it’s time to thin the herd now. This thing was a base model 170, but it left the factory with a 273 V8, 4-speed manual, and a Hurst shifter! If that doesn’t make it cool enough, the previous owner fitted a 360 V8, suspension, and brakes from a newer Dart. It’s located in Boise, Idaho and I’m asking $4k.

We didn’t have to do much to make this one a driver. Four new tires replaced the cracked front and studded rear rubber. Mechanically everything seemed fine, but it did need some cosmetic attention. After a little cleaning and polishing the paint shines again and the interior is bearable.
It still needs some new seat covers, a dash pad, and the headliner installed. We have a new one, but never got around to installing it. The windshield was badly cracked when we bought it, but luckily we were able to find a replacement here locally. You can see the Hurst shifter, tach, oil pressure gauge in this shot.
As you can see, there is some rust in the rear quarters. We haven’t found any other major cancer though. The paint and body definitely aren’t perfect, but I really hope the next owner leaves the exterior alone. It has an awesome look to it just the way it is. I’ll probably regret letting this one go because it’s not everyday you find an affordable V8-powered manual shift Mopar!
Here’s a short walkaround video of the car. This thing has an awesome presence and I’m sure the next owner will have a lot of fun with it. You might want to that open diff though unless you’re okay with huge one wheel peels…
