Description for Dodge Dart 1968

1968 Dodge Dart GT tagged and titled in Oklahoma in my name. Power steering, manual front disc brakes, rear drums. Originally a small block, now has a 440/727 auto, and a b body 8 3/4 rear end with a 3.91 Sure Grip. The 440 has Edelbrock aluminum RPM heads, Lunati Voodoo 60303 cam, Crane roller rockers, Edelbrock CH4B aluminum intake manifold, Shumaker headers into 2 1/2" mandrel bent X pipe exhaust with Dynomax Ultraflow welded mufflers, and a Street Demon 750 carburetor. The rear tires are Mickey Thompson 28x10x15 drag radials. The engine has more than enough power for the street and has proven reliable.
The car had original paint until 2010 when I had it painted. The paint looks very nice, but does have some imperfections. When I had the alignment done, the left front tire caught the fender and bent it in (see pic). Also it looks as if the painter got too rough with the buffer on the right rocker panel. It originally had a vinyl top, but I chose not to install another one after painting it. I kept the stainless trim and it goes with the car.
The interior is very nice, the carpet is new, the seats have been recovered, and the seat tracks powdercoated. Everything else is original and in very good condition. I installed Eastwood's Dynamat type sound deadener under the carpet and back seat. The doors and windows operate like new. There are 2 holes in the headliner above the sunvisors, the rest of it looks great. CD/MP3 player installed with dual dash speakers and 6x9 in the rear. There's a CD that won't eject in it, so it's limited to radio and AUX input. I rebuilt the heater/A/C box and controls, just needs a "firewall forward" kit to have air conditioning. All of the old engine A/C components come with the car minus the compressor.
The car is fun to drive and everything works except the wiper squirter (needs reservoir and squirters), speedometer (fluctuates over 40 MPH), and the flashers. I made a short video of start up and walk around here:
