1969 Dodge Dart. I bought it from the original owner in 1990.
This vehicle came from Atlantic Dodge in East Los Angeles where my father was the service manager in 1969. The odometer went around once but engine was replaced at a little over 100,000 miles. It has power steering, power disc brakes (from 1975 Dart) and factory air conditioning. 360 V-8. Erson 260 degree cam. Edelbrock Performer dual plane intake manifold, Carter (600 cfm) AFB carb, mechanical secondaries and electric choke. Headman headers. Mopar electronic ignition with chrome ECU. Torqueflite 727 transmission with shift kit and lock up torque converter. Mopar 8.75 rear end (from B Body), 3.55 gears, posi and 10" rear drum brakes. Wheels are steel 15" with 4.5" (Mopar/Ford) bolt pattern. 15" x 6" Front and 15" x 6.5" rear. 1969 Dodge Polara/Monaco full hub caps. Tires are BF Goodrich Radial T/A P215/65R15 front, P235/60R15 rear. Includes 15" full size spare.
