The car was an original gold exterior and black interior. It was purchased from the second owner who had it since the mid 1970's. The paint is old and the body needs work but is still good. We will include a fresh rear quarter. The paint still shines but is old. There are many little dings,scratches and rust. The old bondo is cracking and pulling away. There is rust under the vinyl roof which was replaced and is a non original type. The front bumper is original. The rear is a replacement and in good shape. We supplied a new aftermarket rear valance for the R/T model. The frame is good. The trunk is clean with a few small openings at seams. The interior is good. The seats are ok with the exception of a few seams splitting from age. The carpet looks to be showing some aging. Its clean but looks like it might have been dyed black. The headliner is good. The dash board is cracked in two places by the center speaker. The dash board instruments are clean. The gas guage just stopped working and the speedometer crapped out when the new rear gears went in. The lights for the instrument panel are out. The ignition switch is new with a new set of keys. The front end has not been worked on. It will need attention but is fine for cruising. Power steering (very small leak). Manual drum brakes. All work well. The car drives well. The motor is very strong and reliable. The car is fast and sounds great. The car isn't perfect but has major potential. From a mechanical point it is strong. From a body condition state..it needs tlc and body work if you want a show car. For a cruiser and street machine its perfect. Build sheet is included (Broadcast sheet).

DART SWINGER: Blue on Blue. This vehicle was purchased from a very old German lady (94 yrs old named Cookie). She was the original owner of the Dart. I have her bill of sale and build sheet( Broadcast sheet). I took over at 24,500 miles and the odometer reads 38,000 today. She kept the Dart in a garage and waxed it three times a year. I kept it in a garage for a few years but unfortunately have not in the last three years. The Challenger wins that battle. I do keep it very protected but (Betsy...Cooky named the Dart this) would like to go back to a garage. The Dart Swinger has the most desirable paint code (GB5) as we all call  it B5 BLUE with a blue vinyl interior with wood grain steering wheel. There is no bondo on the metal. There are the usual issues with paint fade and a few small dings Cooky did while getting in and out of the garage. I recently sanded down the trunk lid and sprayed it with primer. The paint was fading down to the bare metal. The wheel wells are clean and the trunk is very clean. I show in one of the photos an area behind passenger side front wheel (small rust hole) where I sprayed a rust prevention application just to stop any future problem. This I did very lightly in two other areas known to rust in these models. The bumpers are in good shape. They still shine and are straight with an exception of one small ding Cooky did. The engine compartment still has assembly line # marks and sticker. The vinyl roof is original and in very good shape. The 225 six has a Holley one barrel which was professionally rebuilt and painted. The exhaust manifold was replaced with an upgrade for a Super Six set up. The original manifold was cracked. I upgraded the exhaust system from front to back with a 2 inch stainless steel set up with a little growl on the single muffler. This was done by American Muffler a few years ago. The valve cover was replaced and a new battery was just put in. The car has the original box A/C and it blows cold. I did replace the heater core. The heat blows hot and the defroster works well. The AM radio works great. The interior is mint. There is one small (1 1/2inch) tear on the backside of the drivers side seat which is hardly noticeable. The carpet is blue and in good shape. Original hub caps and radial tires with plenty of life in them. The power steering is working fine. The all around manual drum brakes were just serviced and all is fine. This car is ready as it is. It is so reliable and easy to drive. With the A/C working I would use this car in the warmer months and shut it down for the winter. The Dart can be taken very easily to show car quality or it can be cloned into a muscle car monster.

The two cars are not show cars but are very nice drivers. I am only interested in the sale of the two cars....not one. I am only going to respond to offers for the two cars. I am not supplying storage or shipping. Both cars were not damaged or affected by super storm Sandy. I am a car guy and want to sell these cars for the right price. I will be glad to answer questions....please post them through the Ebay message forum. I was limited to 24 pictures and chose the ones I used for the best exposure of what I have for sale.

REASON SELLING: I own six cars and have one garage. Its time to slip into the next stage of my love affair with the automobile. I will be selling a 1967 Cadillac Coupe DeVille after this Mopar package goes. Then I start my new treasure hunt. Which I haven't figured out yet.

Dodge Journey gets more SUV-like look with new Crossroad model

Fri, 31 Jan 2014 14:29:00 EST

Looking to play up its aging three-row crossover, Dodge will introduce a new model for its Journey franchise at next week's Chicago Auto Show. The 2014 Dodge Journey Crossroad will be a new trim level positioned between the SXT and Limited, and it will be distinguished from other Journey models thanks to a handful of styling add-ons.
Plucking a page right out of the appearance playbook of the Ford Explorer Sport, the Journey Crossroad gets a meaner, more SUV-like demeanor. The Journey has often straddled the line between tall wagon and crossover, but this new trim goes a long way toward skewing its visuals toward the utility vehicle end of the spectrum. That's thanks largely to the Platinum chrome exterior trim on its roof rails and side sills, unique fascias, smoked headlights and taillights and, of course, those black 19-inch wheels. Inside, the Journey Crossroad will get a similar treatment, with darker, Liquid Graphite accents throughout the cabin, and the model will also come standard with leather seats (which Dodge says are a new design), and Chrysler's giant 8.4-inch Uconnect screen.
The 2014 Journey Crossroad goes on sale this spring with a starting price of $24,995 (*not including $995 for destination) for the four-cylinder, front-wheel-drive model, but Dodge says that the model will also be offered with more power and capability from the optional 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 and all-wheel-drive. Scroll down for the full press release, and check back next week for our live coverage from Chicago.

Dodge Challenger spied exercising supercharged Hellcat Hemi V8

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 14:28:00 EST

One of the prime complaints against the Dodge Challenger is that, even in SRT8 guise, its 470 horsepower is responsible for hauling over 4,200 pounds of vehicle. For comparison, the 420 hp in the Ford Mustang GT only has to deal with 3,618 lbs. Things only get worse from there, as the higher-performance variants of both the Mustang and the Chevrolet Camaro are far more powerful than an SRT8 without adding on much heft.
So what is Chrysler to do? The correct answer is add a whole lot more grunt to its hefty two-door and even the odds. That's where the all-new Hellcat engine comes into play. We reported on this engine in May, and suggested that the Hellcat, a supercharged powerplant based on a 6.4-liter V8, would easily generate 500 to 570 hp and could likely arrive boasting more than 600 ponies.
Chrysler's ace in its sleeve has now been spied testing, with a number of Hellcat-equipped Challengers running the potent new engine both in more urbanized areas and under the sun of Death Valley. The hoods on these testers have been raised to accommodate the engine, and that camouflage over the fascias of these prototypes is there to hide a larger air intake. We also note what appears to be a new split grille under wraps. As for power output, our spies are now suggesting a Viper-equalling 640 hp from the Hellcat-equipped cars.

2013 Dodge Dart gets all Moparized

Fri, 08 Feb 2013 18:31:00 EST

Last year, Chrysler announced it would be offering more than 150 Mopar parts and accessories on the 2013 Dodge Dart, and we got a look at some of these parts firsthand at the Chicago Auto Show. Showing off all the optional parts at once would surely create a gaudy monstrosity, so Chrysler chose to equip this particular Dart GT with just a handful of Mopar goodies, which still gave the car a nice and tasteful custom look that is available straight from the dealership (and with a full warranty, too).
Decked out in a factory color called Header Orange Clear Coat - also a very appropriate show car hue - this car added exterior styling parts such as the vented, carbon fiber hood, the bolt-on front chin spoiler and a matte black decklid spoiler. Looking inside the car, you'd think the red-accented interior is part of the Mopar parts bin, too, but this is actually what the standard Dart GT cabin will look like when it goes on sale.
