This is an original 340 Dart GT with A/C P/S P/B. All Vins, and stamps in rad support and body panels are present. I know us mopar guys like to know what they are getting so I decoded the fender tag for you at the bottom..
We have had this dart for a few years. It was complete and we have not done much to it. The body is very straight and solid. I donít see any notable issues with the paint. All the body and door gaps are very even and look good. The glass all around this car is in excellent condition. One of the notable things that could be addressed are the GTS and 340 emblems on the hood and fenders. I would say they are good enough, and may not have been noticed, yet they are not perfect. The door jambs are all nice and show no issues. The bumpers are in nice shape and dont have an bends or issues. I would say a 9/10. The wheels and tires look great and have no issues at all.
The interior is beautiful, The door panels, seats, and headliner have no issues what so ever. The seats were rebuilt with much nicer foam and you can tell. They are comfortable. Seat belts are all aftermarket and matching and look nice. The dash and gauges are all in nice shape. The windows all go up and down smoothly.
The engine and trans feel good. Although this isnít a ĎFastĒ car, it feels great. It really is a joy to drive. There is no fuss what so ever. The transmission goes through all gears seamlessly. It really has been a car that I donít hesitate to jump in and drive without thinking twice. The A/C is cold and the blower is strong. The brakes feel good and the car stops great. The power steering is smooth and makes the car very easy to drive. The trunk is very solid all the way around. The spare tire and jack are all mounted. All of the lights and gauges work as they should. The radio even works. Tach in the center console works and looks very good!
This is a great car for a first classic car or a weekend car that you will actually not worry about and be able to drive every time.
The car has been great to us and I know it wonít disappoint its new owner. I welcome and encourage you to come see the car before you bid. Please ask any questions you would like to have answered.
Please donít bid unless your ready to win this auction.

You ever hear a story and start cringing before you hear the end because you know how it's going to turn out? That could very well have been the case with the story from a few weeks ago in West Valley City, Utah, where a 14-year-old kid stole his grandfather's Hyundai Veloster and took it for a joyride - through a park full of children. But instead it turned into a heart-warming tale of heroism and a community banding together to do what's right... and then some.
Bryson Rowley was that hero who identified the danger and, rather than sit idly by and watch the joyrider potentially run over a child, got into his truck and drove it into the menacing runaway hatchback. The collision caused some $7,500 to his 2008 Dodge Ram 2500, but instead of getting stuck with the bill - one which his insurance may very well have refused to pay since the crash was, technically speaking, intentional - his community pitched in a helping hand.
Bryan Ellison, who owns West Valley Carstar with his brother, saw the news on television and wanted to help. So he brought Rowley a rental car, picked up his truck and brought it back to his auto repair shop. People from around the community donated parts, and when all was said and done, some $15,000 of work and upgrades were performed on the Ram that was returned to an overwhelmed Bryson Rowley better than new. Watch the video below for the full story.
Motorweek's decades of history on television make it the perfect medium to look back into the automotive past and see how things are different now. It recently added old road test videos to its YouTube channel of the Acura NSX and Toyota Supra, as well as the Ferrari F40. For one of its newest flashback clips, Motorweek has exhumed an affordable five-car challenge of 1986's premiere hot hatches.
By today's standards, this is an eclectic field that features fondly remembered classics like the Volkswagen GTI 16-valve and Acura Integra. However, it also throws in some nearly forgotten contenders like the Dodge Colt Turbo and Ford Escort GT. The angular Toyota Corolla FX16 GT-S rounds out the group.
It's fascinating to watch Motorweek run the quintet through the slalom, down the drag strip and on various roads. What's most striking in this clip is the difference in the definition of a performance car between then and now. With its 16-valve, 1.8-liter four-cylinder, the GTI is the burliest of the contenders with 123 horsepower, but it still takes 8.8 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour. By today's standards, that would make it a plain-jane economy car, and not even a particularly quick one.
Being in business for 100 years is a HUGE milestone, so we hope Dodge has more in mind to celebrate its centennial than just a special edition package for the 2014 Charger and Challenger. Called the 100th Anniversary Edition package, this collection of cosmetic enhancements will be available in limited quantities for both cars at a cost of $2,500.
Ordering a Charger or Challenger with the 100th Anniversary Edition package means starting with either a V6-powered SXT Plus or V8-powered R/T Plus model. They can each be ordered in many colors, but only the High-Octane Red Pearl Coat above is an anniversary exclusive. Each car also comes with an anniversary-exclusive set of 20-inch, five-spoke wheels with what Dodge calls "Granite Crystal pockets," a texture that's also mirrored on each car's grille.
Of course, there are commemorative badges galore affixed to the exterior of each car, including "Dodge Est. 1914" fender badges and "100" logos on the center caps of each wheel. The styling theme of each car's interior is a bit more interesting, with Dodge designers trying to evoke "the patina and machinist legacy of John and Horace Dodge," the company's founders. To that end, the leather interior can be had in Molten Red or Foundry Black Nappa, and each features a custom cloud overprint that makes the hide look like a working man's dirty dungarees. Designers also used brass-colored accent stitching on the interior's leather trim pieces, and affixed more "Dodge Est. 1914" badges to the front seat backs and floor mats. We do like the flat-bottomed steering wheel, and the Challenger 100th Anniversary Edition gets exclusive white gauges faces and the Charger black. The "100" on each car's speedometer is also highlighted in red.
