CRUISIN CLASSICS is very proud to introduce our newest arrival. This is a very spectacular 1968 Dodge Dart GT Convertible upgraded to GTS Specifications. Under the hood you will find a true star. The 340ci Chrysler small Block. Originally a clean Texas GT with a 318 and a column shifted automatic, this car was transformed with horsepower a stick shift and a bright B5 blue paint. The sheet metal on the car is all original including the floors and trunk and is in excellent condition following a cosmetic restoration. Panel gaps and alignment are factory or better and the paint is glossy and bright with a deep shine to the base/clear system used. The builder was shooting for a great driver that could be shown and enjoyed at the same time. He Nailed It!! The 340 was unique in Detroit as there weren't any low performance models in that displacement. Every 340 came with good heads and at least a 4bbl and a decent cam. It automatically said performance and this cars engine is no exception. It's original intake was an Edelbrock but due to technology getting better, it now has a Edelbrock Performer RPM Air Gap in place and a natural for the 340. The chrome and other bright pieces were redone during the restoration, while much of the other trim was properly restored, including the beautiful grill and headlight surrounds, the GTS specific hood inserts and the tail panel. Some other honorable mentions include a new vinyl convertible top (professionally installed) and new chrome latches. The glass other than the windshield (replaced in 2007) is original and in outstanding condition with no damage. The transmission is a 4-speed manual in place of the original Torque flight automatic and that's exactly what you want in a hot cruiser like this one. It's topped by a Hurst Shifter and it's placement is nothing short of perfect. Underneath, the bushings and other hardware were replaced and the steering linkage is new. The factory undercoating was touched up and ready to go for another 40 years. The deep rumble is courtesy of a TTI 2.25" true dual exhaust system with Dynomax mufflers. The 8.75" rear is stuffed full of fresh 3.73 gears for potent acceleration in this lightweight package. There's a Sure-Grip in the housing out back and a sway bar up front. Both items you will find in the majority of the GTS's. The interior is all fresh with new vinyl, carpet and a wood grain steering wheel to compliment the shifter. The power steering is a plus that makes cruising effortless. Out back you will notice the original floors and the trunk painted in the same shiny blue as the exterior. Documentation includes an original owners manual and several decades worth of maintenance receipts on the car dating back to the 70's, as well as a detailed ledger that details the date, mileage and type of every service that the car has had since that time of the previous. Receipts for most of the restoration, dated from 2007, are also included. This is certainly a special car that everybody should appreciate as a car person. This quality is rarely seen in restorations and should be admired by all.Mileage is N/A.If you have any additional questions, please call one of our friendly sales staff.
