1969 Dodge Dart GTS
The Dart again, but running. Powerful engines in light cars. It's simple
laws of physics that makes Darts and Mercury Comets quick. Taken at
Abingdon, MD Lowes.
1969 Dart GTS 340 Burn Out
A burnout video as promised. Here is a big thanks to all the folks at
http://www.forabodiesonly.com/ who helped me turn a trailer of parts into
this restored 1969 Dart GTS. Those were some sticky Mickey's after that.
AAR Cuda Mopar 340 TA Engine block
In 1969-1970 Chrysler made a special 340 engine for the AAR Cuda and the
T/A Challenger. These engines were different than a standard 340 used in
other Mopars. The TA engines had the designation embossed on the block,
driver side. If you're buying a TA 340 also check the heads by removing the
oil cap on the passenger side. With the cap off look inside and the rear
rocker should be offset. You may need a flashlight to see it.
If you scattered the original engine you may have received a standard 340
replacement block. I've heard stories both ways. My buddy back in 1970 went
through 3 warranty transmissions before they said enough.
Some of the later blocks which were left over made their way into 1971 340
Road Runners and other cars. If you're looking at a 340, look closely
because the TA340 are still around.
I hope you enjoy the video and it helps you.

68 Dart 340 4 Speed Run
My 1968 Dart after I transformed it from a slant 6 auto to a car with a
1968 340 that I built myself, 4 speed manual trans., and an 8.75, with 3:91
ratio limited slip diff. In the beginning, the first car you see pass by
is a COP! I waited a few seconds for him to get down the road a ways
before I took off. Sorry about the poor sound quality from the camera.
