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,

Dodge is only building 500 examples of the black-and-blue Mopar '13 Dart, but the majority of them are now being recalled. Part of the Mopar upgrade included replacing the stock seat skins in the Dart with black and blue Katzkin leather, but the seat-mounted side airbags were reinstalled improperly during the upfitting process, which could affect the performance of the front seat side airbags.
Wed, 24 Jul 2013 15:32:00 EST
According to the official National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin, a total of 374 Mopar '13 cars are being recalled due to side airbags that might not deploy in a side-impact collision. There have been no reports of the airbags not going off, but Chrysler will still need to reinstall the bags to ensure proper deployment. The recall notice is posted below, which gives information for Mopar '13 owners to contact Chrysler and NHTSA.
Are you hesitant to pull the trigger on a brand new Dodge Avenger in hopes that a new one will be coming? Well, don't hold your breath. According to The Detroit News, Chrysler will be extending production of the current Avenger sedan through the end of 2015.

Originally, we heard that the company would kill the Avenger to better focus its midsize sedan efforts on the Chrysler 200 replacement. But then new reports stated there would indeed be an Avenger successor, and that we could see it as early as next January. This Detroit News report cites supplier sources confirming the extension of Avenger production, though Chrysler has not released an official statement on the matter.
These same suppliers say that the current Jeep Wrangler will live on through mid-2018 - that's right, another five years. The Detroit News reports that a replacement for the iconic, go-anywhere Jeep was due in mid-2016.
Okay speed freaks, it's time to update your cheat sheet of police headlights, as Dodge has just unveiled the new 2015 Charger sedan's police variant, the Pursuit.
Like previous Charger Pursuits, the 2015 model is based on a modified version of the civilian sedan, featuring the same basic batch of mechanicals and sheetmetal, while adding a number of items specific to the five-oh.
For 2015, cops can select from the same 3.6-ltier V6 and 5.7-liter Hemi V8 available to the civilian population, with former turning out 292 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque and the latter packing 370 ponies and 390 lb-ft. Even loaded down with equipment, Dodge claims the Hemi-powered cop car can hit 60 miles per hour in under six seconds, while both engines are expected return 26 miles per gallon on the highway (thanks to the V8's four-cylinder mode). Rear-wheel drive is standard with both engines, while V8 Pursuits can be fitted with all-wheel drive.
