1964 Dodge Dart GT: The Right Stuff

1964 Dodge Dart

There are some cars that just seem so “right” to me. I didn’t wake up today wanting a 1964 Dodge Dart GT convertible, like this example here on eBay with one bid at $1,950 and no reserve in sight. But for a cheap entry to cruise nights that you can enjoy all summer long, there’s a lot working in the seller’s favor. He claims to have owned it for the last 14 years, a rarity in today’s flipper market, and it seems like he used just as I’ve described here – fire up the 273 V8, pick up some friends and go for a ride. And while it hasn’t been restored by any stretch of the imagination, does it even need it? The interior is basically new, making it a pleasant place to spend a few hours, and the replaced gas tank means you’ll actually arrive (assuming other mechanical systems check out). I wouldn’t even worry about the rust for the time being if it continues to be stored indoors. The styling is a matter of personal taste, but I see some references to the Chrysler Turbine cars in the front end – not a bad thing, in my opinion. If the auction stays under $3,000, this looks like a deal to me – anyone agree?

    A beater without a top with a v8 for under 3k! Can’t beat it with a stick!

    I’m not a fan of these but a V-8 ragtop that runs n drives?..looks like phun to me….

    Great car to cruise around in. I love the torsion bar front ends on these.

    Really good value even with it now up to USD 2,000 – great looking car.

    Looks like the rust “repair” amounted to slathering Bondo until the hole was covered. As it sits, maybe 3K-3.5K would be it. Always remember the rust you see is only 1/2 of what is there.

    That said it’s definitely worth saving. So do I pass on the Rouge and follow this one?

    Sigh. Decisions

    Darts and Valiants in this era were notorious for windshield leaks. Check the floors, I’ll bet they are rusty.

    I bet someone pays way too much for this collectible.

    Those ford wires ought to be worth a few bux

    I had one of these from ’05-’12. Great car, and the 273 was a respectable V8. A very comfortable cruiser to be sure. But 3K tops on this example.

    I had the exact twin to this car during my high school years, 273 V8 & all, same color & all. It’d be a pisser if this is it.

    Yes, I do agree. I had a 64 Dart sedan a few years ago and what a fantastic car that was! It was a 225, push-button automatic car. I’d love to have a GT.

    Link says it’s sold now.
