Not very often would a 1969 Dodge Dart be referred to as rare and unusual, but here’s one that most certainly is.
For the 1971 model year, Dodge got its hands on the two-door hardtop bodywork of the Duster model that Plymouth had introduced the previous year.
If a jack-o-lantern swallowed a race car, the byproduct would be this 1972 Dodge Demon. Essentially a standard Dart sedan with a sporty two-door resemblance to the Plymouth Duster.
I was attending a monthly meeting of the POC and one of our members brought to my attention that in a national magazine someone was selling a Dodge Dart convertible with a SC area code.
The Dodge Dart actually started life as a smaller, full-sized vehicle for 1960 and 1961.
