1964 Dodge Dart GT
Fratzog (1962-1976): A fractured deltoid shape commonly compared to
a rocket or triangle, was named the Fratzog. If you're wondering
what that word means (it sounds German, doesn't it?), it's totally
meaningless. The designer made up the gibberish term due to being
obligated to come up with a name. There are still many conspiracy
theories about it...
This piece of Dodge history is like greased lightning. It has a
small production aluminum block form 1962, and other work and
attachments aplenty. It retains its original look from 1964, and
sports 11" Cop Car wheels. There are lots of other goodies so read
A black canvas convertible top with a clear plastic window tops
this car off and moves up and down with ease. I'd personally prefer
it down, because the car has a nicer line with it that way. Bathed
in very nice red paint, just a few faults throughout, but mostly
unremarkable. Upfront the round single headlights and bezels flank
a narrow horizontal grille with a spaced DODGE badge in the center.
A nicely preserved bumper is just below, and this has 2 round turn
signal lights hanging from the bottom. The chrome trim with the GT
badge frames the slight bump in the hood. The rear of this car also
has 2 individual round taillights from which emerges just a hint of
a tail fin topped in chrome. Steel Cop Car wheels with a dish outer
ring, and small chrome inner cap has a black Fratzog logo in the
Simply elegantly done, this interior is pristine. Front buckets in
black vinyl have inner horizontal ribbing with smooth outer
bolsters. White piping and a perfectly preserved Fratzog also in
white is seen in the middle of each seat back. The front buckets
also have nice chrome trim supporting the bottom and back outer
corner of the bolsters. The rear bench is also as close to
perfection one can get and emulate the styling of the buckets.
Between the buckets is a wood topped Mopar pistol grip shifter
which sits proudly in a sea of very clean black carpeting. A look
to the dash and we see the true to 1964 restored dash, in beautiful
black steel and horizontal ribbed aluminum front. A vintage Sun
Tach is mounted to the column right behind the original steering
wheel. Lest I forget, the trunk deserves a word, with perfect
interior red paint, and the checked vinyl liner straight and
Popping the hood, we are met with polished aluminum heaven. 225
Cubes in slant 6-cylinder form, and the aforementioned 1962 cast
aluminum block. Inside there is an Erson cam, a polished aluminum
intake, and an Edelbrock 500 CFM 4-barrel carb to feed the slanter.
Also, of note the large intake valves and the head have been
ported, and smoothed. An A833 4-speed with overdrive manual
transmission is bolted to the back. Polished Jack Clifford headers
wind their way past the intakes and form a neat bundle before
exiting out to the 2-1/2" pipes and hi flow mufflers.
Very slight surface rust on the usual steel characters, but mostly
black undercoated, no rust floorpans, and rockers. Nary a drip to
be found anywhere, this undercarriage is tight! An 8.75 Challenger
rear with 3.50 gears, drum brakes in back and disc brakes in
As I slip into this great interior, I'm amazed how good it looks! A
turn of the key and she fires right up and has a sound that makes
it sound like it has a much larger engine. It drove smoothly, no
power steering, and brakes were excellent. Shifting was a breeze
with the pistol grip, and it has plenty of power.
All sorted out direct from 1964 Dodge boys, this simple design,
great restoration, and dazzling polished aluminum mill, you will be
assured of getting plenty of looks at the show or on a jaunt down
main street. As I said, "Greased Lightning!"
