Introducing the 1967 Dodge Dart GT, a sleek compact convertible. Amazing
how sporty and cool this looked back in the '60s. Sadly, by the '70s just
about everything cool from the '60s was revamped and ruined. In 1973 my
parents bought a new Dart, and it was the most boring conservative car
imaginable. Thank you, Chrysler motors.
Pamela Austin, the perky spokesperson, was the "Dodge Rebellion Gal" in
over a dozen television ads from 1966 and 1967. The campaign had a faint
"rebellion" theme to jazz up the company's stuffy image. Most of these end
with Austin shouting "The Dodge rebellion wants you!" She also did
commercials for the Charger, Polara, Coronet, Monaco, and even trucks and
vans. And all in the same turtleneck sweater ensemble.
Why she is riding a flat-car loaded with boxes of dynamite in this ad is
never explained. But TV advertising is not known for making much sense.
Perhaps the rebellion girl is on her way to blow up a Ford dealership or a
government building in protest of the Vietnam war.
The lovely Pam Austin had a number of acting roles. In "The Twilight Zone"
she was the model of the perfect girl in the futuristic "Number 12 Looks
Just Like You" (1964). She starred in "The Perils of Pauline" (1967),
appeared on "Laugh-in", "The Wild Wild West" and was also in "Evil Roy
Following the commercial I added two clips of her from "It Takes a Thief"
(1968) and Kissin' Cousins (1964) opposite Elvis and that other '60s siren,
(Have also posted ads for the 1966 Mustang and Pontiac GTO.)

Bill Bagshaw's NHRA Pro Stock "Red Light Bandit" 1970 Hemi Challenger
This 1970 Hemi Challenger was owned and raced by Bill Bagshaw in NHRA Pro
Stock drag racing from 1970 to 1973. The car made its debut in 1970 at the
NHRA U.S. Nationals, and won "Best Engineered" at the event. It was
featured in the November 1970 issue of Hot Rod magazine. John Gastman of
Roanoke Motors Chrysler/Dodge in Roanoke, IL owns the Red Light Bandit. He
purchased it from a private owner as part of a package deal back in 1994.
In January, 2011, Gastman called on Bucky Hess, and his son Travis Hess, at
Bucky's Ltd in Martinsburg, WV to restore this historic race car. Bill
Bagshaw, the original owner and racer, provided an enormous amount of
information to Gastman and Bucky during the restoration of the Challenger.
Bagshaw became part of the restoration team when he agreed to rebuild the
Red Light Bandit's 426 Hemi motor at Ron Shaver's Racing Engines in
Torrance, CA. Using pictures from magazine articles and build pics, Bucky's
fabricator, Cole McAllister, expertly returned the body to 1970 condition.
The talented artist Nelson Grimes re-created the lettering to "as raced"
appearance, using both gold leaf and white gold leaf materials. The final
product is stunning.

If you're in the market for a super-clean street bruiser that you can show,
build on and enjoy for years; why not kick the summer off behind the wheel
of some incredibly priced, old school Mopar muscle?
During a frame-off, rotisserie restoration, this Dart's mostly original
body was stripped to bare metal and fitted with new, high quality quarter
panels that, along with a thorough block sanding, ensured a virtually
flawless surface. Once that surface was completely clean and fully prepped,
a positively glowing coat of Chrysler code FJ5 Sublime Green was sealed
under a thick clearcoat shell which accents the car's no-nonsense, old
school looks with a glossy 21st century shine.
Under the hood you'll find a 500 cubic inch 968 Hemi that's been decked,
bored .030 over and completely rebuilt. At the top of that engine, a
polished air filter funnels wind through a reusable filter element into a
giant Holley 4-barrel carburetor that's cinched to a chrome intake,
polished stainless fuel lines and an underhood fuel pressure gauge. At the
sides of that intake, stock heads, which have been fitted with Hayes studs,
prop pristine chrome valve covers over a fully balanced rotating assembly
which includes JE 10.5 pistons with Hayes rings, shot peened and sized
connecting rods, an Eagle stroker crank and Hayes main studs. Fire is
provided by a Painless Wiring harness which sends spark through a Mopar
Performance ignition system to a Mopar points distributor and high
performance plug wires. Cooling is provided by a polished aluminum radiator
which sends water past two quick spinning electric fans and a polished
overflow tank to a high performance water pump. And lubrication flows via
an external oil system to and from a seven quart Milodon oil pan. At the
sides of the motor, ceramic coated long tube headers send spent gases into
a ceramic coated true dual Exhaust
system. And at the front of the motor, fresh V-belts spin a chrome
Powermaster alternator between billet brackets, a full set of billet
pulleys and a high quality Milodon gear drive.
The powerful Hemi engine sends its thrust through a new, race-prepped A727
Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission which has been equipped with a
manual valve body, a 2500-2800 RPM stall converter and an aluminum
transmission cooler. That transmission is connected to a traditional 8.75
Sure Grip rear end which has been narrowed by 11/16ths on each side and
stuffed with a limited slip differential, Dutchman axles and solid 3.55
gears. Exhaust is handled by a ceramic
coated true dual system which is complete with an X-pipe crossover and
great sounding Flowmaster mufflers. Braking is handled by traditional
manual front discs and rear drums which have been rebuilt all the way up to
their fresh stainless lines. And power flows to the ground through 14 inch
front American Racing Torque Thrust IIs which wear 195/75 Signet DSR
radials and 15 inch rear American Racing Torque Thrust IIs which wear
28x11.50 D.O.T. approved Hoosier Quick Time slicks.
One glance over this Dart's Sublime Green doors reveals a bright white and
black vinyl interior which presents just as well as when it rolled off the
showroom floor. The correct front bucket and rear bench seats feel almost
as good as they look and provide a firm plateau for both cruising and
spirited driving. And the fade-free dash has been retrofitted with a
standard three pack of Auto Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges. Between the
seats, a pristine full length console props a large Auto Meter Sport
tachometer in front of a super cool pistol grip shifter. And at the sides
of the seats, custom Sublime Green door frames highlight correct "GT"
emblems and fresh white panels. At the bottom of the car, new black carpet
is protected by color-keyed carpeted mats. At the front of the car, a
classic Mopar Tuff wheel sits atop a tilt steering column. And at the back
of the car, a fully restored and freshly carpeted trunk holds an Optima gel
If you're looking for a top notch muscle car that you can keep, show and
enjoy for years to come, you simply can't go wrong with this '69 Dart GT
convertible! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more
