1965 Dodge Dart GT
1965 Dodge Dart GT
This 1965 Dodge Dart is an excellent example of the 1960’s transition into a new automotive era.
This marvelous little car exhibits the styling of the finned era as foreign competition forced American auto makers to think smaller and more fuel efficient cars are the future. This US example of a “compact” car still offers seating for 5 despite its sporty appearance with bucket seats and a front center console and floor mounted lever to control the 3 speed automatic transmission.
The transmission is coupled with the rock solid dependable leaning tower of power slant 6, 225 cubic inch engine.
The engine has been treated to all new gaskets, water pump and ribbed aluminum Offenhauser valve cover.
The engine was removed to allow the engine bay to be professionally cleaned and painted. The firewall was stripped of the heater box and factory installed air conditioning when the old system was changed out to the modern 134A system complete with all new components.
The original system is included with the car for the purest wanting to return the system to its factory specifications.
Overall vehicle performance is enhanced with a dual reservoir master cylinder, front disk brakes, aluminum radiator fitted with dual electric fans, aluminum 4 barrel manifold topped with Sniper fuel injection. Safety is further enhance through the use of 14″ whitewall tires riding on vintage Cragar SS mags. A backup camera has been added to increase this solid vehicles safety factor. Long trip comfort is eased through the added cruise control.
The interior is mostly original but has been cleaned up with a new headliner and front seat upholstery from Ledgendary Interiors. The radio is AM/FM 8 track.
Great for cruising or showing and reliable enough to use daily. This rare car would be great for an experienced collector or someone looking to start a collection or just get into the enjoyment of owning a classic.
It is always enjoyable to chat with the many folks who want to share their own memories of owning a Dart while you are building memories of your own with this outstanding piece of automotive history.
