Can you believe you can get this cool cruising convertible for
under $25K?! But more than just price, we all know Mopars are the
rarest of Detroit's Big Three, and this 1966 Dodge Dart convertible
has been restored with a great color-coordinated package.
In 1966, the Dart was revised to have a more blocky stance to really maximized the space of Dodger's compact offering. This unique bodywork has remained straight and angular on this after all these decades thanks to a two-decade period where this was parked in a barn - far away from everything that causes dents and dings. It was resurrected and restored a decade ago, and so the droptop has a fresh appearance with great sheetmetal, mirror-like chrome bumpers, iconic Rallye wheels, and every piece of hard to find trim is complete and gleaming.
While the black roof looks great against the beige, with just a flip of the power top switch, an even more impressive two-tone interior is revealed. This black and beige is a custom leather setup has a terrific color-coordination with the exterior that tells you there was a lot of thought that went into restoring this barn find. So it's sure to attract a crowd. And more than just a show car, the A-bodies might have been Dodge's more compact offering of the time, but this Dart has belted seating for six. So it's that perfect cruiser to share with family and friends.
If you really want to understand the level of restoration on this Dart, all you have to do is lift the hood. The 225 cubic-inch six-cylinder looks as fresh as the day this car left Dodge's Hamtramck plant. That's because the engine was rebuilt during restoration, and it has only been driven a few hundred miles since then. The bold red block against the beige is a real standout, and this one is complete right down to the Super Six graphics on the air topper. This is a peppy motor that can move the lightweight Dart with ease, and since the three-speed automatic was rebuilt at the same time as the engine, you know this is a sturdy cruiser. In fact, you'll really love getting this great-looking droptop out on the road, and because of that, it has also been upgraded with front disc brakes and the modern grip of Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires.
Complete with the original warranty card and owner's manual, rarely do you get such a unique treat for such an affordable price. So hurry up and grab this convertible Dart before it's gone. Call today!!!

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.
