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. :)
1968 Hemi Dart
In 1968 you could walk into a Dodge dealership and if you knew who to talk
to, you could buy essentially the same car. 500hp right off the
assemblyline. A completely done dragcar that could be taken to the
dragstrip the second it was delivered and win.
The best musclecar ever made? No.
The baddest? Probably.
1968 HEMI Dart Super Stock - Real Car

Heading up to get the Tom Karay Memorial Award at the 23rd Annual Muscle
Car Classic Car Show 8/02/09. This car was absolutely perfect in every
detail. A true pleasure to view and hear. Copyright 2009
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!
Jimmie's blown 572 dart
Jimmie's (blown572dart) on moparts.com latest project is this wicked street
driven 68 Dart. It has an EFI Screw Blown 572ci Hemi built by Dram, full
tube chassis, a slick black paintjob. After 3 years it is finally finished,
tagged and insured. Fastest Street Car?
The 1974 Dodge Dart Swinger (before the paint job)
It's my first car. It's got a 318 4-barrel carb. Gold paint. Very
comfortable seats. Fun to drive. Update: 3-14-11, I recently found out
that the 318 in this car isn't original because I checked the engine block
casting # and the heads' casting #. But I also found out that the 318 is
from around 1985 or so. This might not seem like much unless you know that
around 1985 the 318 were given smaller combustion chambers: also known as
"Fast-Burn" heads (which gave them 9:1 compression), revised spots of the
spark plugs, and even roller lifters. To verify that I actually had roller
lifters, I myself personaly, pulled of the intake manifold and to my
surprise, there were roller lifters. Pretty neat huh.
