Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this 1968 Dodge Dart Pro Street "Indy Cylinder Head built the Dart". It has a Hemi -- 605 cubic inches monster engine! That was reflected on the dyno sheets that Indy supplied with the engine: 836.8 horsepower and 752 lb.-ft of torque. The Hemi was teamed with an equally stout J.W. Performance Transmission-built 727 with a 4,200-stall converter and a narrowed rear end equipped with Strange axles and a Detroit Locker that are up to the task of taming all that Hemi power. Outside, what was left of the original Dart's body structure was plenty enough to build from, once the floors and quarters were replaced with new steel. AAR Fiberglass' bolt-on hood, bumper, front fender, doors, and decklid reproductions -- plus a '68 Super Stock-style hood scoop -- were fitted and installed before the two-stage Sikkens Viper Red enamel went on. Inside, it's a combination of race-car safety hardware and high-end cruiser, with leather covering the SCAT racing seats, dash and door panels, and custom carpets on the floors. As for a sound system, the Hemi's custom-fabbed exhaust system is for that purpose. Engine: There's big, there's huge�and then there's this Indy Cylinder Head-built Street Legend Hemi. Displacing 605 inches, it features Indy's aluminum 41/2-inch bore block, with a forged Callies crankshaft and Eagle H-beam rods, forged 10.75:1 compression Wiseco pistons, and a Comp Cams solid-roller camshaft. A pair of Indy's 426-1RA heads, ported Indy intake with a 1050-cfm Holley Dominator, MSD ignition, and a custom-built exhaust system finalize the overgrown air pump. Transmission: J.W. Performance Transmission-built 727 with a reverse-manual valvebody, 9-inch/4,200 stall convertor with a trans brake, B&M shifter, and a Gear Vendors overdrive. Rear: Narrowed 9-inch is filled with a 4.56-geared Detroit Locker differential and Strange axles. Suspension: (Front) Art Morrison's Super Strut, (Rear) X-link with Strange coilovers and ladder bars. Brakes: Four-wheel discs with Wilwoods in front and Strange Engineering rotors and calipers in the rear. Wheels/Tires: Welds and Mickey Thompsons (Front) 15x4�-inch wheels on 26x7.50x15 M/T Sportsman tires, (Rear) 15x14-inch Double Beadlock wheels on M/T's 32x17.50x15 ET Streets. Paint/Body: Original unibody had its floors and trunk replaced before it was fitted to the round-tube frame. AAR Fiberglass provided the hood, front fenders, trunk lid, and bumpers, and Rick Perry (aided by Don Reese and Ron Sheed) got it all ready for the Sikkens two-stage Viper Red enamel. Interior: Fernando Torres custom-stitched the SCAT Sportsman race bucket seats, door panels, and dash pad in tan leather with matching suede inserts. Steering wheel is a repro Tuff one on a Flaming River tilter, and tan/brown carpets cover the floors. This is one serious bad boy, gas sucking, tire evaporating machine! She will really get up and go! This car is truly one of a kind. This is the one you want to own.

Not very often would a 1969 Dodge Dart be referred to as rare and unusual, but here’s one that most certainly is.
For the 1971 model year, Dodge got its hands on the two-door hardtop bodywork of the Duster model that Plymouth had introduced the previous year.
If a jack-o-lantern swallowed a race car, the byproduct would be this 1972 Dodge Demon. Essentially a standard Dart sedan with a sporty two-door resemblance to the Plymouth Duster.
I was attending a monthly meeting of the POC and one of our members brought to my attention that in a national magazine someone was selling a Dodge Dart convertible with a SC area code.
The Dodge Dart actually started life as a smaller, full-sized vehicle for 1960 and 1961.
