For Sale: 1969 Dodge Dart in Sioux Falls, South Dakota


Vehicle Description

The Dart was originally sold new on December 12 1969 to a gentleman in St. Paul Minnesota. The original owner had a passion for racing, and traded in his 1965 Mustang on this Dart Swinger. He Bought the Dart for the sole purpose of taking it to the drag strip on the weekends in the summer months. During his time racing, he did a few aftermarket modifications to make the car go down the strip. These modifications included installing a new camshaft, racing headers, a ram air hood, racing gears, and widening the rear wheel wells by about 3 inches to fit a bigger set of tires in the rear. However, in the mid 70�s, the drag strip that he was so accustomed to travelling to on the weekends closed. Instead of selling his car, he stuck it in the corner of his garage and threw a cover over it. The car remained there until September 23rd of 2013 when the original owner�s son sold the car to a gentleman who worked for the local dodge dealer, and saw the car pull in one day while he was on shift. This was the first time the car had been out of the original family and it had never been touched since the drag strip closed, but he wanted to have the ability to drive the car, so he reinstalled most of the factory parts that the original owner had kept. This included putting new correct size rear tires back on the rear, reinstalling the original hood, installing a steering column mounted tach, and putting stock gears back into the rear-end. The car still has the aftermarket cam-shaft installed, along with the racing headers and exhaust, with the original cam-shaft and headers included with the car in the boxes that the aftermarket parts came in. Along with that, the car also has all of the original paperwork; that being things like the receipt of delivery, the window sticker, vehicle trade-in invoice, owners-manual and books, plus a selection of pictures of the car and the original owner at the race track in the early 70�s when the car was new. Being stored for most of its life a
