This low mileage 1974 Dodge Dart Swinger is highly original - right
down to the numbers-matching V8. But they still made the right
investments in quality, like with the newer paint and R134a A/C
interior. The result is a hardtop classic that delivers the vintage
feeling but with true cruiser style.
This Dart was already born a deep shade of Lucerne Blue, but what
really makes it look extra bright today is the investment in a
modern clearcoat respray later in life. It's not so electric to
take away the vintage feeling, but it certainly gives it a great
glow of nostalgia every time the sunlight hits it. And more than
just the paint, this one really get the classic attitude right. It
has averaged less than 1,200 miles annually, which demonstrates a
well-respected life. So the sheetmetal is exceptionally straight,
and elements like the full-length body crease and sharply-pointed
front end remain crisp. The black vinyl roof was also updated later
in life. It's a great way to not only highlight the pillarless
hardtop profile, but it also goes particularly nice with the black
steel wheels and cool factory dog dish hubcaps.
Inside the sea of blue continues. Everything looks highly original,
so it's believed to be a survivor-grade setup, right down to the
artful texture of cloth seat inserts. There's more evidence of the
well-respected life with the level of detail on this classic. It's
everywhere from the premium wood-like accents, to working dome
light, to the AM radio that still powers up. While these were
smaller cars by 1970s standards, today they feel quite spacious to
accommodate family and friends. Plus, the factory air conditioning
has been converted to R134a to keep everyone comfortably cool. But
even when it's just you going for a drive, the split front bench
has a fold-down armrest to make it feel like you're in a high-back
bucket seat. So you'll love cruising this hardtop ant any time, no
matter how many come along for the ride.
Under the hood, you can tell there has been plenty more invested in
this Dart. The clean and tidy engine bay shows off the original
numbers-matching 318 cubic-inch V8. They've made some nice upgrades
in power with and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and intake. This
also adds to a nice tune out of the H-pipe dual exhaust. Plus,
power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, and front
disc brakes are great features you want for a classic like this.
The solid feeling it has on the road reminds you of the solid
investment in this coupe.
