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. :)

Over the years, we've seen some nicely restored Darts. Vanguard Motor Sales
in Plymouth, Michigan is proud to debut one of the most spectacularly
restored Darts we've ever seen! The previous owner purchased the car in
2005 and went through the process of fixing, cleaning and replacing
everything. There are only 500 miles on the car since the rebuild.
Let's start with the exterior. '67-'69 Darts have always had a purposeful
look, and the '67 is the cleanest of all with no side marker lights, a
cleaner front grille and uncluttered taillights. The beautiful Hemi Orange
paint was done in 2005, and looks near perfect today. Both bumpers were
re-chromed in 2006, so you can imagine the way they shine. All of the
window molding was replaced in 2011 and the glass looks brand new. It sure
is pretty but you'd be crazy to tangle with this bad boy on the street!
Lift the hood of this Dart and you'll find a 340 cubic inch 4 barrel out of
a 1971 Plymouth Barracuda. An electric ignition gets her fired up and fresh
headers with electric bypass were also included in the rebuild. The 4 speed
transmission, out of the same 1971 Barracuda as the engine, does not
disappoint. It all ends up with a stock Mopar 3:90 gear rear end and 2 ½"
stainless steel Exhaust with electric
outlets, which sound amazing opened or closed.
Inside, the newly upholstered black bucket seats, door panels, trim and
dash looks right at home. This is a cool car to just sit in and look
around. New and re-chromed shiny stuff abounds while a single aftermarket
tachometer sits on the dash. Neat stuff!
Throw the car on a lift and take in the details. There are all new
bushings, suspension shocks, front disc and rear drum brakes. The
undercarriage and trunk are both super solid. Show or shine this is one
heck of a car!
If we had one car in inventory right now that is the perfect combination of
show/cruise and hold for the long-term, this is it. This is one of the
finest restored Darts on the planet, with all of the right stuff. Don't let
this one get away! Call Tom Today! 248-974-9513
