This is a completely restored 1965 Dodge Dart Charger with only 480 being badged as Dart Chargers it is extremely
rare. There is only a hand full known to still exist. It has just 8 weeks been completed and has less than 1000
mile on the engine. I have tried to return this car back to its original condition as much as I could.
Drivetrain: Engine and transmission are the original ones. Rear end is not. I think it is from a late 60's Dart
or Plymouth A body but not sure. It has a 355 gear with Positive traction. It has all new bearings and brakes. The
engine has been totally rebuilt with .030 oversize pistons 9.8 compression ratio. ( original ones were 10.5 to 1)
The engine still has the break-in oil in it. Cylinder heads have hardened valve seats for use with unleaded gas
and have been completely rebuilt. Transmission has new synchronizers and bearings. It has a new clutch and
pressure plate. It had been converted to duel exhaust when I bought it and I returned it back to the original
single exhaust from Accurate Exhaust at a cost of $800. I repaired the original resonator which was supplied with
the car when I purchased it. Suspension: All new shocks. Complete frond end rebuild. All suspension parts bead
blasted and painted. The underside of the car looks as good as the top. Body: Sheet metal was in very good
condition except around the windshield. The rusted parts were cut out and new metal welded in to make the repair.
New windshield and rubber were installed. Driver and passenger floor pans were replaced. 1 small patch behind the
rear wheel opening was repaired. All other sheet metal is original. Vinyl top was replaced by the previous owner
before I purchased it. Not sure how old it is but looks new. The body had a few small dents but no other rust. Front and rear bumpers have
been rechromed. Taillight bezels rechromed. Interior: The dash pad has been recovered. It had a small crack
near the middle. The instrument cluster and all 4 trim pieces have been rechromed and detailed and looks awesome.
Door panels, Front seats and carpet are all new. The headliner, back seat and package tray are original. Arm rest
bases have been rechromed. Side and rear glass is original and in great shape. 4 speed shifter plate has been
rechromed and detailed. Shifter is original. Wheels: 14" X 6" Cragar SS. This car came from the factory with 13"
Cragar SS wheels which are unattainable at this point. Tires are like new.
All weather stripping has been replaced. It took me about 16 months to do the restoration.

Lackluster Dodge Dart sales trigger layoffs

Thu, 06 Mar 2014 14:00:00 EST

Hidden amidst the overall very positive sales figures that Chrysler released earlier this week were a few disappointments, the biggest of which may be the Dodge Dart. While Dodge sales in general were down 11 percent from a year ago, the Dart's poor figures stood out from the rest - with 4,888 units sold, the Dart was down 37 percent in February.
It comes as little surprise, then, that the automaker has announced layoffs at its assembly plant in Belvidere, IL. According to The Daily Herald, Dodge will temporarily lay off 325 workers "to balance vehicle supply with current sales demand." Put more simply, there are more Darts than buyers at the moment...
We don't think the Dodge Dart is a bad car, but it's playing in a market that offers a few standout sellers, like the Chevy Cruze, Ford Focus, Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla. According to AutoPacific analyst Dave Sullivan, as quoted by The Daily Herald, "great incentives on the Dodge Avenger" are also partly to blame for the Dart's poor showing.

Ron Burgundy calls Durango a 'terrible car,' yet his ads help sales climb by 59% [w/videos]

Fri, 22 Nov 2013 13:00:00 EST

Ron Burgundy was put on this planet to do one thing: to read the news. If that ever falls through, though, the womanizing, scotch-drinking anchorman could have a great career just as a Dodge salesman. Bloomberg points out that sales of the 2014 Dodge Durango have rocketed up 59 percent in the first month of Chrysler's funny new ad campaign (which began in early October). But then again, the entire year has been strong for the big SUV, with year-over-year sales increases in the double and even triple digit percentages - including an increase of 117 percent in August.
Of course, the Durango has also received a wealth of new content and a freshened look for 2014 in addition to the Burgundy campaign, and that has to be helping close sales, too. Whether or not the spots themselves are leading to more sales may be a moot point, since they are definitely getting plenty of attention. Almost two months into the marketing tie-up between Dodge and the movie Anchorman 2, Dodge's YouTube videos have received well over seven million views. More than just YouTube shorts and television commercials, the Durango has even received late-night attention, including when Will Ferrell showed up in character as Ron Burgundy on Conan earlier this week.
In the interview, he calls the Durango a "terrible car" that "cracked in half," a joke that probably had Dodge ad execs squirming uncomfortably in their Barcaloungers. Scroll down to watch the Conan interview as well as some of our favorite Burgundy-pitched Durango ads. And there's still plenty of time to "touch" Ron to win a new Durango.

Dodge Charger Pursuit nets quickest lap in police car test

Mon, 30 Sep 2013 17:21:00 EST

We wouldn't advocate trying to outrun the police, no matter what you're driving and no matter what they are. But if you see a Dodge Charger bearing down on you with blue lights flashing in your rearview mirror, you'd better think twice before attempting to flee, because the Charger Pursuit has once again emerged as the fastest police cruiser out there.
In the latest Police Vehicle Evaluation held by the Michigan State Police at Grattan Raceway, Dodge says its new Charger Pursuit AWD posted a lap time of 1:33.85. That's quicker than any of the other law enforcement vehicles present, but also makes it the quickest all-wheel-drive cruiser available to law-enforcement officials. That may not make it the quickest of all time, but that honor belongs to the rear-drive Dodge Charger Pursuit, which cuts a fraction of a second off its AWD counterpart's time with a 1:33.70. But in regions where the extra traction could come in handy, that's as negligible a difference as we've ever seen.
Of course, the annual PVE sessions held by the Michigan State Police take in to account a wide variety of performance tests, including top speed, acceleration, braking, handling, fuel economy and ergonomics. The MSP has yet to reveal its full findings from its 2014 model year tests, but we'll be sure to bring them to you when they are published.
