Description for Dodge Dart 1963

Now...before you get too excited, this car doesn't actually exist. 4 door convertible???!! How could that be? Here's the story: I've owned this thing forever and a day, since before it was "classic". It was just cheap reliable transportation when i was younger. Then I turned it into a summer only car in the 90's, kept it in the barn. About 15 years ago I was hopped up on coffee and decided one weekend to cut the top off and make a poor boy convertible. I filled in the jagged spots with bondo and sheet metal. Added a bar behind the driver bench for door stability.The rest is history. We mostly drive it short trips... back roads to the lake, grandma's camp etc..The thing just won't die!! Slant six starts right up. push button auto on dash. Runs and drives great. It is not a safe car however. It would surely fold in half in a collision. If you're a kid looking to drive the interstate to College, this is not a good choice for you! Ideally it would be for parts (great drivetrain), for parade float use, or backroad cruising for crazy old guys like me. Please be sure to understand what you are buying here. Buyer responsible for determining the legality and inspectibilty of the vehicle per local laws. Seller makes no claims for this being roadworthy. I've often wondered if it could be turned into a real car again through superior welding attempts( e.g) weld both doors closed? Weld rails underneath, or weld a custom frame for a cloth top. (No top included in sale). I almost just filled it topsoil and planted flowers in the driveway. But it runs too nice for that. Will need tires, they are old and one has damage, but they do hold air and roll smoothly. Brakes work, but just barely. Need pumping. Master is leaking, needs constant pumping and topping off. Wheel cylinders are probably shot too. Overall body is solid. paint is just Rustoleum with plenty of drips, but looks decent enough. Can deliver within 200 miles or so for a small fee. Can help coordinate with your shipper too. Call with questions - Jim 802-345-4857
