Vehicle Description

Vehicle Specifications:

     1969 Dodge Dart Swinger 2dr Hardtop V8 2bbl 273 cu in. (4.5L) 190 hp with 3 speed automatic transmission assembled in Los Angeles county, California at the City of Commerce plant located at 5800 Eastern Avenue and Slauson Boulevard. The plant was operational until 1971. The original color was a gold exterior with swinger accents black vinyl hardtop with black interior. The odometer reads 38,027. the mileage is 138,027, however due to the limitations of a 5 digit odometer it is true mileage unknown.  

Vehicle History:

      The Dart was bought new by Georgette of Long Beach residing on the corner of W. Lincoln st. and River ave.  Georgette was well to do and did not work outside of the home.  The Dart remained there garaged as a secondary car for 28 years until her passing in 1997.  The Dart was sold by the brother of Georgette to a neighbor two houses away on W. Lincoln st., Ray who kept the Dart for one year and then sold the Dart to my wife, Angela who lived directly across the street from Georgette on W. Lincoln st.. My wife Angela has retained the Dodge Dart for the last 21 years.  The Dart has been driven sparingly given its 50 year history due to the first owner not needing to work and the third owner my wife, unable to work due to disability. The Dart has never left California, never been in an accident, never been neglected, and spent the vast majority of its life on the same block here in Long Beach, CA.  The Dart is still in Long Beach in our garage 2.7 miles away from her original home.  Weather permitting, we still drive it to Pacific Baptist Church on Sundays located 1.9 miles away.

Vehicle Repairs:

     The engine was rebuilt in 2005. In 2017 The brake master cylinder was replaced. In 2018 the transmission was rebuilt, the carburetor replaced, and a new front windshield. In 2019 we painted it a  two tone  of silver and black, new wheels and a tune up.  As needed, I have done general maintenance and repairs over the years with my favorite shop in Long Beach. It has an Alpine stereo that we use bluetooth combined with Spotify to play Elvis Presley.

Vehicle Condition:

     The Dart runs and sounds beautiful and I have taken good care of my wife's baby.  I start it up several times a week to keep her happy.  The paint is new, there are no dents or scratches.  The interior is exceptionally clean.  No one has sat in the back seat for years.  I believe a big selling point of this car is that it is versatile.  The choice is for the buyer; make it completely stock, or make it a muscle car, or turn it into a show car, or just drive it once a week like us for a trip down memory lane. Wherever you drive this car people will ask about its specifications, give a thumbs up or a big smile.

Vehicle Sale:

     I currently work as a manager in the oil pipeline construction and repair  performing resource management of crews and equipment for the field, additionally I provide computer aided design for schematics of repairs and maintenance for estimates of upcoming projects.  Due to advances in technology I am able to do the majority of my work remotely.  We would like to use the opportunity to do road trips.  We are not going to tow this Dart behind a motorhome, and we do not feel comfortable leaving this at home for extended periods of time.  As our golden years approach it is time to find a new home for this pampered Dodge Dart.
