1968 Dodge Dart GT Convertible
Yearning for a member of the Scat Pack? Do the current market
values of a Charger R/T and Coronet R/T have your wallet screaming
with agony? Don't worry-you can leave that 401K untouched, since
the fine folks at Dodge offered a third, and often forgotten,
member of the Scat family: the Dart GT Sport, also referred to as
the Dart GTS. Thx to Hemmings for help on this intro!
For consignment, a 1968 Dodge Dart that has undergone a 383ci Mopar
Performance restoration. From the cam to the torsion bar suspension
all Mopar parts were used for the redux. A larger rear axle,
1973-1976 single pin disc brakes, and a freshly rebuilt A-727
Torqueflite transmission. Oh, and the green metallic paint and
convertible top aren't too shabby either, as well as the interior.
I'd say the whole white hat boys' package is all here in the East
Hallway (for now).
In 1968 the front of the car had a single headlight on either side
with a slightly smaller signal light nearby. The Mopar grille with
its 4 central open sections and a center horizontal bar gives it
the Dodge look in front. A dual side vented hood, nice front and
rear quarters, which are adorned with a centrally located trimming
that starts just behind the grille runs around the wheel wells and
top the back of the car breaks up the Metallic Green paint. Gazing
at this paint is almost hypnotic as you will become mesmerized as
to its depth. The black vinyl top goes up and down very smoothly,
and when down this car is late 1960's cool. A white boot covering
adds to the mystique. Wide stainless trim surrounds the windshield
and surrounds the remainder of the glass. A side view of this car
looks like they just drew a straight flat line from the hood to the
trunk deck and save for the windshield is flat as a board. On the
back angled taillights are on each corner and a large ribbed
aluminum panel with a D O D G E badge in the center grounds the
lights in the corners. A shiny bumper is below, and this car just
glistens in any light. 14-inch Mopar road wheels are on all 4
corners, and all are wrapped in new 205/70R14 rubber.
With the top down we can see miles of white vinyl covering all
surfaces. Door panels with their GT badges and shiny handles, and
low back buckets in front which are just pristine and white. A rear
bench is in, and this looks very good as well just like the
buckets. Green seat belts add some contrast to the white, and this
can also be said for the dash which has a padded green dash top and
black and chrome trimmed horizontal band for the dash front. A very
clean 60's design not unlike the ties of the era, sleek and thin.
In the center of the buckets is a stylish console which begins in
the form then widens as it races to the dash. It is molded charcoal
gray vinyl and has a ribbed aluminum panel on its top. Just in
front of the polished ash tray sliding cover is the chromed gear
shift lever more 60's styling. Black carpeting is on the floors and
this dash and seating could not get any better!
Under the hood is a 383ci V8 bathed in sky blue paint. It has an
Edelbrock 4-barrel 750 cfm carb feeding it and an Edelbrock intake
manifold. On back is the newly rebuilt A727 Torqueflite 3-speed
automatic transmission, which pushes power rearward to an 8-3/4
inch 2.75 Sure Grip rear axle.
Underneath some patina and road dirt and slight surface rust on the
frame but all unremarkable. New single pin disc brakes are now up
front, and 10 inch rear drum brakes bring this beauty to a stop.
Mopar Performance big block torsion bars are upfront and leaf
springs in back. Dual exhaust makes its way through new stainless
A quick starter, and smooooooth runner with great acceleration,
fine handling and bias free panic stopping. All was well with the
transmission and other functions of this car including the power
A recently completed restoration, now a turnkey car with a 383ci
V8, 750cfm Edelbrock carb, and Torqueflite tranny. A like new
interior, excellent paint, just put the key in the ignition and
drive to a show, win an award and then go home. Or take a retro
road trip and turn heads for miles and miles.
