Description for Dodge Dart 1968

This car originally came from the Southwest, was virtually rust free and still retains all of its original panels. The body was media blasted top and bottom. It was painted in PPG DBC base and Concept clear, QQ1 color code and black in the engine bay and trunk. The bottom of the car is painted in grey single stage urethane to resemble the original primer color these cars came with. Almost all surfaces were either gun painted or powdercoated. As can be seen by the VIN number this car is not one of the original 80 Hemi Darts. It is simply the best, most correct real clone done to date.

The motor is a correct date code 1966 426 Hemi block. It was rebuilt, is .030 over, never windowed,cracked or sleeved. New pistons, standard crank, completely rebuilt heads with all new components, new cam and lifters, new pushrods, original magnesium crossram intake, original carbs-rebuilt and perfectly tuned, original correct numbers aluminum water pump, original 033 radiator with new triple core, original one year only Super Stock NOS mechanical drive dual point distributor, original correct pulleys, original valve covers, rebuilt correct alternator, seven blade aluminum clutch fan, Hemi K-Frame powdercoated, MSD 6al-digital hidden behind glove box. Motor was broken in on a dyno and made 552hp @ 6500 rpm with 500 ft. lbs. of torque.

The remaining highlights are as follows: 8 ¾ rearend-4:10 gear-pinion angle set for car-perches moved for the offset leaf springs, new super stock springs, wheel wells and driver shock tower modified to match original Hurst work, superstock battery in trunk with correct trays and tie downs, original style battery terminals, all new brakes-drum rears and disc fronts, big bolt pattern front spindles, passenger side under dash air box is original and quite rare, new ⅜” fuel line and sender, new brake lines and hoses, new shocks, original Hemi Dart seats and brackets,original factory mirror delete plate, correct radio and heater delete plates, Stahl period correct mechanical tach, rebuilt the 727 tranny-upgraded to handle engine horsepower and more,Cheetah shifter-reverse manual pattern,front wheels are original Hurst 5 spoke-serial numbered, Goodyear front tires 7.50-14, rear tires are Mickey Thompson Radirs-30x10.00-15, rear wheels are 15x7 powdercoated, mini starter, front end completely rebuilt with Moog parts and aligned for no bump steer, rechromed bumpers,master cylinder relocated and installed as Hurst did it. As much as possible I used all original correct fasteners-yes a couple are not, there is an original “blue box” transistor ignition box mounted on the firewall under the dash-it is for looks only, interior has all new carpet and headline, fenders from AAR and hood from Cynergy Composites. I’m sure I’ve missed some things, happy to answer any serious inquiry.
