67 dodge dart

I have come across a 67 dodge dart, the body and under carrage is in good shape, it has the original slant six and trans, it runs (OK). The interior is shot, i think with a littel elbow grease and paint job it would be a pretty clean car, my question is would it be worth (value) my time. thanks for your help.

The value has to be determined by you. Dollar wise, probably not as far as I can see. Not really a collectors item. But then, I have seen everything considered by someone to be a collectors item.

A good friend had a 383 version of that car in HS except with a 440 transplant, that thing hauled the mail!

Go for it! the car is a classic in it's own right and your only a K member and big block away from a serious boulevard cruiser, forget originality...rod it!

I've always liked the small Chrysler cars; my '65 D-Dart was a screamer (until I lunched the rear end)! I'd say, "Go for it!". With a 360 and a four or five speed, this thing would be a ball!

Thumbs up 67 Dart - to build or not to build

Go for the lil Dodge build, I just built a 70 Duster and put a 13.5 / 1 383 dual 4 barrell screamer in her with 4 speed..Got 3:91 possi gears in an 8 3/4 and it hauls. It was an original 6 banger car also. Did body work myself with a little help and turned a car worth about $2500 into one that I just turned down $6500 cash.. The Lil Dart is a great car to build whether you're a Mopar head like me or not...still lots of stuff out there to have and most reasonable...If you can find a 340 engine reasonable, go for it...cheaper to build and they put out mucho ponies...The old A body mopars; Darts, Dusters, Deamons, early Cudas are becoming collector cars very rapidly...GO FOR IT!!! and good luck...hollor if you need a tip or two...

Leroy,

Gotta go with DaHammer. Build you a little 340 and go blister some 'Rice. Down in LA there should be plenty of old MoPar iron sitting around. Find you a 340 and just go back mostly stock and you can put up some serious numbers.

Hammer,

How in the Hell do you get that Duster to hook? Sounds like a trip to me.

Wink Hook'n up an A Body Mopar

Cudabob,
Gett'n a sassy big block A Body Mopar to hook and still stay basically stock is like try'n to get a blue oval to break loose! He He He He....(Joke) very hard thing to accomplish..but can be done..Gotta get the right possi gears for the motor along with the right torsion bars up front (slant six cars have the ones needed) gotta find the softest compound, widest tires available that fits under the car...Mother Mopar built in the best hooking suspension a poor hotrodder like me to ask for, Don't need to go crazy with a lotta add on bars and such....when a Mopar raises in the *** the wheels are try'n to go south...that's good!!! Mopar wisdom is to launch quick and get her in the big gear asap and let the torque and ponies do the haul'n...the old 8 3/4 rear ends from Ma Mopar are bullet proof for the most part and do as good (to me) as the much used Ford 9 inch...make sure your HP rear springs are set at no more than 22 inches in front of the axle mounts...there is a ryhmn to the madness and this stat makes the lift happen..I've found that traction bars only help mopars if by some rare chance you get wheel hop..early A833 4 speeds and 727 T.Flights have great stock gears..Later !!spank:
