1973 Dodge Dart Swinger
Alright, now before a bunch of people start flipping out at me for abusing
this dart, realize its NOT your car. I won this car on ebay in 2005 for
230 bucks. And We had some fun with it, put a small dent in the door, the
ball joint went, then i sold it for 230 bucks to some dude who's gonna put
a ball joint in it, fix the rust, and possibly throw a 440 in the beast.
This dart is a stock 318 with a 904 behind it. Its nothing special, and
really rusted out. Especially the floor pans. I'm really not that big of
a fan of the body style, especially compared to the 63-66 body styles. I
really like the 64 and 65 darts. I sold my 64 dart in 2010, and still have
my 65 dart gt convertible 225 manual on the column. I got lucky and won
this car on ebay, and pretty much just bought it to use in the most fun
ways possible. We are NOT the kind of people who buy cars to restore, to
have these immaculate, shiny show pieces, that we hardly ever drive, that
we only take out so people will look at them and think, wow, that dude has
a nice car. We don't buy things so that other people think cool things
about us. we liked the car, and used it the way we like. And it did not
destroy the car. A few burn outs, locking up the brakes, a little water,
and some wobbly driving can't hurt a car. Thats one of the points of this
whole video, and something i think alot of people really need to learn.
This was a tough puppy. :)
Control arm repair
Many Mopar lower control arms have a lot of slop between the torsion bar
pivot and the body of the control arm. This doesn't seem to cause a major
problem, but there's no reason not to fix it. The fix is actually quite
simple if you have a grinder/cut-off tool and a welder. Some arms were
actually more spot welded so they have to be drilled out. If I come upon
another set of those I will update the video or add a new one.
