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.
1968 Super Stock Hemi Dart from Hurst First Drive
The first drive of Troy's 1968 Super Stock Hemi Dart recreation. This car
is a recreation of how racers originally recieved the cars from Hurst
Corporation. Skinny tires, primer paint, transistorized ignition, heater
delete, outside mirror delete, rear seat delete, no seam sealer, no sound
deadener, no undercoating, and many many other tricks!
The rolling burnout in this video was truely not done on purpose. Just
bliping the throttle with those skinny bia plys will that!
It's a correct looking 472 Hemi with the new TTI Hemi A-body headers. No
need to have expensive custom header made for your car anymore! The rest of
the Exhaust is straight back to
glasspacks as delivered by Hurst. This was THE car TTI used to prototype
and create the jigs for A-body Hemi Headers. This car has a 1968 idler,
pitman, centerlink, with manual brakes. Motor is positioned as called out
in the TTI instructions.
Troy did extensive research and work to complete this project that took
under 2 years to complete. Final paint application, engine machining, and
seat covers, where the only 3 items he did not do in his 2 car garage!
