What a rare and beautiful example! The fact it's a four gear car is wild(er) too. I just love the white strie, the wheelcovers and the whitewalls, a terrific car, we're lucky to see it weekly at the Kanata Cruise.
Mr. Norm Interview, Pt. 2 - The New GSS HEMI Dart!
Yes, it LOOKS like a '68 Dart. But that's where the similarity ends. Hemi
engine, 4-wheel disc brakes, modern suspension and transmission, chrome
rims on low-profile PZero tires and just about any performance and comfort
option you could want.
The car shown here, owned by previous ShowYourAutoTV interview subject Bill
Sefton, is one of 40 being made, after which production ends for good. To

1968 Dodge Dart GTS 440 V8 Four-Speed at Passing Lane Motors
I thought you might like a look at this super clean 1968 Dodge Dart GTS.
It's powered by a high-performance 440 V8, equipped with an aluminum
intake, 4 BBL carb, and coated headers. All that power is being sent
through a four-speed manual transmission. This really is the nicest Dodge
Dart that I've seen yet. The paint is slick, the interior looks like new,
and it's really jaw dropping under the hood. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for watching!

Mr. Norm Interview, Pt. 1 - How the '68 Dart GSS Was Created
Patrick Krook, CEO of ShowYourAuto.com, interviews legendary
high-performance Dodge dealer Norman Kraus (Mr. Norm) on how his Grand
Spaulding Dodge created the Dart GSS, a fire-breathing compact muscle car
with a 383 c.i. engine that Dodge's engineers claimed couldn't be built.
Ironically, this car inspired the factory-built Dart GTS with the same

If you're in the market for a super clean street bruiser that you can show,
build on and enjoy for years; how about an old school drop-top that
combines an invigorating driving experience with a top-notch restoration
and unmatched exclusivity?
The beneficiary of a high quality frame-off restoration that was conducted
sometime within the last few years, this stunning one of forty-four Dodge
Dart GTS convertible has been fully rebuilt from its frame rails all the
way to its correct white roof. Take a good look at our high definition
pictures and you'll see one slick drop-top that's obviously logged very few
miles since its thorough shakedown was completed. The car's sculpted Mopar
body has been massaged and finessed until its panels were as straight as
anything that sits on a modern showroom floor; and since they knew it would
be getting A LOT of serious scrutiny at shows, the guys in the body shop
went the extra mile to make sure everything lined up correctly. On the
outside of those panels, two-stage urethane accurately reproduces
Chrysler's code T Medium Green Metallic finish; and on the outside of that
urethane, a correct white bumble bee stripe perfectly frames the car's
razor-sharp quarter panels.
If you build a classic drop-top that draws this much attention, you'd
better be able to back up its good looks with some serious firepower!
Accordingly, this buff compacts restorer's dipped into the Mopar parts bin
and served up a date-correct 340 cubic inch V8 that wears a 2780930 casting
number and thumps to the motto: bigger is always better! At the top of that
legendary Chrysler mill, a large 4-barrel carburetor is sandwiched between
a correctly branded organisol air cleaner, a cast iron factory intake and a
pair of traditional, stamped steel valve covers. Behind those valve covers,
a familiar points distributor sends fire through a fresh set of Chrysler
Corporation Electronic Suppression plug wires. And beneath those valve
covers, cast iron heads dump incinerated dinosaurs into a free-flowing true
dual Exhaust system via restored cast
iron Exhaust manifolds. Cooling for
the big engine is provided by a heavy duty 26 inch Chrysler radiator that's
cinched to reproduction Chrysler hoses via correct squeeze clamps.
In 1968, if you were a true car guy, the only transmission you wanted in
your Dart was a factory-issued A833 4-speed; and the 23 spline unit in this
cool drop top can turn even the most mundane errands into a clutch
slammin', gear grindin' good time! Naturally that high performance engine
and transmission combination feeds a fully rebuilt front torsion bar and
rear leaf suspension that's shackled to a correct power steering system and
a rebuilt rear end. Cool and confident stops are provided by a correct
power drum brakes at all four corners. Exhaust flows down the center of the car through
true dual pipes that run to factory replacement mufflers and traditional
stainless tips. And power flows to the pavement through factory steel wheel
spin F70-14 Firestone Wide Oval Super Sports around simulated mag wheel
This Dodge's fender tag says it was originally equipped with a black and
white interior; and accordingly, the car's cockpit was correctly restored
all the way down to its bright white door frames. The front bucket and rear
bench seats are firm to the touch, and feature correct white covers that
show no signs of tear or separation. At the bottom of those seats,
fade-free black carpet is protected by stylish "Dart" branded floor mats;
and between those seats, a factory correct console frames a double-bent
Hurst shifter in bright chrome trim. The car's pristine padded dash hangs
an old school horizontal speedometer beside a correct Dodge Solid State AM
radio. In front of the driver, a restored steering wheel spins stylish
satin spokes around chrome trimmed foot pedals.
Just looking at the quality of this Dart's workmanship, you know its build
probably cost twice our asking price. In the meantime, it's also fast,
comfortable, and stylish, which are all attributes shared by the very best
hobby cars. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today for
