1969 Dodge Dart Gts Convertible 2-door 340ci on 2040-cars
Houghton Lake, Michigan, United States
On Feb-01-14 at 10:33:50 PST, seller added the following information:
1 of 417 made (including the 50 export). 340-4bbl, 727
auto, all matching numbers. Total restoration in 2004. Most Every nut, bolt,
washer either replaced or redone. I'm the 3rd owner. Car is originally from mid
Ohio. The 1st and 2nd owners were best friends, so I have the complete history
on the car, including the original window sticker and broadcast sheet.
I've owned it since March 1995. I had a 68 Dart 170/6 in
high school and fell in love with the 69 GTS then. I started looking for a 69
GTS convertible in 1987, wanting a white top, white interior and white stripe.
I didn't care what the body color was as long as I got my white. It took about
8 years for a white top/interior to come up for sale. Currently has about 121,000 miles. Engine was
rebuilt to stock by Muscle Motors. They did go .030 over and did some
head/valve work. Original exhaust manifolds, but a 2 1/2" exhaust. The
only original sheet metal on it now is the hood and the doors. Everything was
shot. After taking the car down, the body man called me, had me look at it, and
asked me, "Am I sure I want to go thru with this on this bad of a
car?" By this time, I knew what I had, being all matching #s and as rare
as it is, I figured, let's do it! The front fenders and truck lid came from a
rust-free California 6 cyl Dart. The rear quarters are reproduction. I did the
complete disassembly and re-assembly, but farmed out the body/paint and
rebuilding of engine and trans. I even bought a buffer to buff all the
stainless trim myself.
The front grille and wheel covers are original and were
restored by Totally Auto in PA. They told me I have the 'most expensive set of
wheel covers in the country'.
It was invited to and shown at the 2007 Carlisle
All-Chrysler Nationals held in Carlisle, PA.
It was awarded 3rd Place at Autorama 2008 - Detroit
It was invited to the Willistead Classic Concours
d'Elegance in Windsor Canada on August 24th 2008.
It was in the July 2009 edition of MuscleCar Enthusiast,

As a reporter covering an auto show, the one opportunity you never want to miss is going to the Sergio Marchionne press briefing.

"This undertaking to bring Alfa back is a one-shot deal... We are not going to do this twice."
There just aren't that many real characters left in the auto industry. Marchionne, who sits atop both Chrysler and Fiat, is not only one of the smartest execs in the business, but also the most frank. Herein, a sample of the quotable always-sweatered executive:
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is hauling a multitude of modified models to the annual SEMA show in Las Vegas this November, and the company is releasing the first teasing sketches of many of them.
Mon, 08 Sep 2014 16:00:00 EST
Unfortunately, FCA isn't giving many solid details on any of the concepts other than saying the vehicles from Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram and Fiat all benefit from tuning from its Mopar performance brand. The teaser photos include a sinister-looking Chrysler 200S, Fiat 500 Abarth with two-tone paint and a scorpion on the hood, a red and black 500L, seemingly two different takes on the Jeep Renegade, a green Dodge Challenger wearing the T/A badge, an orange and black Dart, a very neon Charger, just the outline of a red and black Viper, a Ram ProMaster in Mopar livery and a Ram pickup called the Outdoorsman.
Take a look through the gallery to see what you think of the sketches for these concepts, and scroll down for the full announcement from FCA.
The 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat has sucked up a lot of air in the automotive news world this summer, so it's good to know that you can actually go out and, you know, buy the sucker. With 2015 models headed for your local showroom, Dodge has seen fit to also pull the wraps off it's latest Challenger configurator, complete with the supercharged Hemi V8 option that we just can't seem to get enough of.
We're still enamored of the $58,995 starting price for the 707-horsepower SRT, but the online tool finally gives us a chance to see just how optioned up our dream super-muscle coupe can get.
Buyers can choose from three interior treatments and nine paint colors, with two hues (Ivory White and Phantom Black tri-coats) coming for a $500 premium. For $1,795 Laguna Leather SRT bucket seats can be added in place of the (very nice) stock chairs, and a fancier infotaiment system with navigation and HD radio runs $695.
