1966 Dodge Dart 270
The third generation Dart, produced from 1963-66, was a very popular car for Dodge. Referred to as the “Senior Compact” car due to its longer wheelbase, the Dart used the same A-Body suspension as the larger Valiant. The longer wheelbase provided additional rear seat leg room, driving comfort and the car enjoyed great popularity compared to its Ford and Chevy competition. The Dodge Dart 270 was the high spec model of the product line with an available 273 cubic inch V-8.
The car presented at auction is a low-mile and numbers matching 1966 Dodge Dart 270. Sold new in South Dakota, the car changed ownership in 2011 and titled in Montana at that time. The odometer currently shows just under 32,000 miles! Important work was recently completed on some mechanical components including the following:
– New radiator
– New water pump, hoses and fan,
– New starter
– New voltage regulator
– New battery
The 273 V-8 motor, while not rebuilt, runs great. Two pumps on the accelerator, turn the key and the engine fires right up every time! Under the hood is clean and presents very well. The original service card is found under the hood.
The interior is all original and shows well. The front and rear bench seats present very little wear with no tears or rips. The headliner is in excellent condition and the sun visors, while slightly worn, are all original. All the components works just fine including the horn, lights, blinkers, cigarette lighter and gauges. The steering wheel is solid with no cracks present, same with the dashboard which is original. The original owners manual is present in the glove box. A modern “vintage” radio provides great sound either from the airwaves or your device.
The body, free from rust, was re-painted approx. 5 years ago to a deep Metallic Blue. All trim pieces adorning the 270 models is present on this car and in very good condition. The original chrome bumpers shine bright and are free from dents and dings. The trunk is solid with the original jack and lug wrench perfectly in its place. Chrome Crager Wheels with BF Goodrich Tires sets this car apart and provides a great stance.
This fine Dodge Dart will provide excellent classic car driving fun for years to come! She drives like a Mopar should and will give you much driving pleasure.
