I don’t know about you, but when I think of Dodge Dart, a lot of things come to mind, but the 1962 model is not one of them. Thanks to this example here, though, maybe it will in the future. Here, then, for your consideration is a car that might make you rethink the Dart. Check it out.
The second-generation Dart is an interesting interpretation of early 60’s car styling: it sits low, with plenty of glass all around, but with complicated body lines and shapes that evoke the big cruisers of the previous decade, along with those stacked taillights. There was definitely a shift in consumer taste, and the Dart was right in the middle of it.
This one lead the charge for Chrysler with a “Poly” V8 of unknown displacement under the hood. Caveat emptor, though:
From the ad:
All glass is very nice,body is great,chrome is nice and all there,trunk is nice with original jack and still has card board in there,motor is #s matching and was running when parked 10 yes ago,all original and low 65xxx original miles,original keys,complete dash,has push button automatic, original hubcaps there,rolls and steers,interior all original in decent shape,these are rare and in great shape 1 owner car but no title if he finds it buyer will get it ,this cat is cheap so come get it it has amazing body lines cash only call
Yep, ran when parked. Judging by the tires, I’m curious as to how it was driven when it was parked. As the seller mentions, the interior is actually in decent shape for its age, but it will need a lot of work.
It’s kind of amazing that this car only exists because of some bad intel from someone eavesdropping on GM execs. To my mind, this is a full-size car, no matter how big the other guys were doing them. The snout on this second-generation Dart is almost as long as the rest of the car, and the interior is comfortably sized, to say the least.
But that’s just me. Is this a nice price at $1500, or is this RWP just too much work?
