1968 Dodge Dart GT, Convertible, 340, Auto, Rotessorie Restored
Restored about a year ago, this 1968 Dodge Dart GT Convertible is the perfect top-down summer cruiser. Built by a master body man and nationally published builder, this Mopar A-body is a no-excuses, turnkey, and all new. If you are looking for a small block convertible to enjoy at the local cruise-in drive the family to the beach, this Dart GT hits the target.
BODY and PAINT
Taken down to bare metal and brought back up, long-boarded and finished to show mirror shine, this car has never looked as good as it does now. Floors, doors, fenders, trunk floor, and trunk lid are all OEM Factory Metal. Quarters, trunk drops and the GTS hood are brand new AMD units. The bumpers, grill, lights, front glass are all new. Side glass and all the stainless trim have been polished are in like new condition.
The engine bay is stock appearing and shows like new. The factory 271 was jettisoned in favor of a stock built, hydraulic cam 340 4bbl engine assembly. The radiator, master cylinder, wiring harnesses, and pretty much everything else is brand new.
The convertible top assembly is completely rebuilt, the frame blasted and painted, new soft trim and mechanicals included. The interior wiring harnesses are all new, gauges and bezels are rebuilt and restored. The dashpad, carpets, front kick panels, door panels, seat cushions and covers are all new, made by Legendary Interior. The rear interior panels are not reproduced, so the originals were restored and look fantastic.
This is where most people cut corners, not on this one. Finished is a stone chip resistant flat black, the undercarriage was also taken down to bare metal and worked to perfection like the rest of the vehicle. The suspension was completely rebuilt, using Hotchkis Springs and Shocks. The 727 Transmission and 3.23 8 3/4 Rearend were also mechanically and cosmetically restored to as new condition. The braking and fuel systems were also rebuilt and restored, including all new hard lines and fuel tank. No corners cut here.
A Dart may still be considered a budget Muscle Car, but this is no budget build. If you are looking for something that is both affordable and high quality, look no further, this is the one for Summer fun!
