eBay template information@RKMotorsCharlotte. com 5527 Lakeview Road. Charlotte. NC. 28269. US 1967 Dodge Dart GTS Documented Numbers Matching West Coast Body Dart GTS 383 V8 A727 3. 23 Sure Grip Year: 1967 Type of vehicle title: Clear Primary color: Red Mileage: 87364 Transmission type: 3 Speed Automatic Engine: 383 V8 Interior color: Black Vehicle Info While they were offered as Dodge's compact econo-cruiser. something about the Dart's angles begged for a high-performance treatment. As a result. a lot of guys have thrown 383s. 440s. and even 426 HEMIs in six-cylinder cars with impressive results but the elusive factory big-block Dart is still the closest thing you'll find to a blue chip A-body. This award-winning 1967 Dart GTS is just such a car - one of only 229 to house the marriage of a 383ci V8 and a Torqueflite automatic. Thanks to a pampered California life. the car retains all of its original sheet metal which. thanks to an extensive restoration. is now topped with an impressive mix of original and difficult-to-find NOS pieces. Fully supported by its broadcast sheet. Certicard. and documented owner history. the car has past you can trust and a future full of trophies. If you're ready for a pedigreed Mopar without the six-figure price tag. take a closer look at this Dart GTS. We'll get started by decoding the VIN and highlight the car's factory options:LP23H72291XXXL: DartP: Premium23: 2-door hardtopH: 383-4 HP V87: 19672: Assembled at Hamtramck291XXX: Production sequence numberShipped date: March 13. 1967Options:Paint: PP1 Bright RedTrim: P6X Black. all vinylTransmission: 5 TorquefliteAxle Ratio: 3. 23 Sure GripEngine: 62 383-4 HP V8Tires: 28 Red streak D70x14Radio: 1 Music MasterPower: 1 BrakesClean Air Package: 1 California Only.

If you believe everything you read in used car ads. just about every car without visible rust is an "original California car". This Dart makes that claim too but backs it up with an owner history that dates back to its original buyer a Los Angeles realtor. The car was fortunate enough to trade hands between a small number of owners who understood the car's rarity. making the restoration process a little smoother than most. Stripped to bare metal. the all-original body required no major repairs just careful prep work for the fresh coat of PP1 Bright Red paint. It's a flattering color for the car's straightforward lines and one that shows especially well thanks to the contrasting black vinyl top. With laser straight panels. impressive fitment. and a great factory color. the car makes a great first impression. While the paint and body work is a good indicator of the caliber of restoration this car received. the details back up that idea in a big way. Every piece of trim on the car is either original or NOS. creating the closest thing you can buy to a brand new Dart GTS. At the front. a rechromed factory bumper rides below the handsome GT-badged grille. The fenders are capped by NOS turn signal indicators while. further back. the windshield has been upgraded with a '68-style gasket and trim set. The side view is filled in with crisp GTS badges. dent-free rocker trim. and driver-side remote rear view mirror. Otherwise. the bright red paint is left to speak for itself. Step around to the back of the car to admire the NOS taillight lenses capping the quarters while a factory valence sports a Dart GT badge above a rechromed rear bumper with NOS reverse light lenses. The big engine/little car formula seems like standard muscle car era practice but. in '67. the Dart was just starting its performance journey. Lift the hood to find this A-body's original 383ci "B" series V8. which produces a factory rated 280hp and 400lb-ft of torque. The foundation is a 2468130-12 block that hosts a balanced bottom end with new pistons. reconditioned rods. and a fresh crank. Further north. an updated cam works alongside rebuilt factory heads and a single Edelbrock carburetor to create the driving experience you would hope for from a car like this Dart. The intake manifold and valve covers are all both original pieces while the engine is crowned with a correct snorkel-free air cleaner added as a part of the California-mandated Cleaner Air Package. As you might expect. there isn't a lot of room up front so the accessory drive spins little more than an alternator. fan. and water pump. The water pump housing is another original piece which sits opposite a high-efficiency three-row core radiator and matching shroud. To support those original pieces. fresh hoses and wires run throughout the bay while reproduction decals and inspection marks complete the look. Shine a light under this compact Dodge and you'll find a rock-solid undercarriage ready for sunny-weather cruising. The K-frame has been powder coated. a new fuel tank lives out back. and everything else has been treated with the same level of care the rest of the car received. Behind the 383. an A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic takes care of gear selection while an 8. 75 inch rear end puts the power to the pavement through 3. 23 gears. Around that drivetrain. an OEM-style chassis remains in place with torsion bars up front and parallel leafs out back. As an original big block car. power steering is out of the question but the brakes are power-assisted. clamping down on front discs and rear drums. The dual exhaust system flows down the center of the car to factory-style mufflers and bright stainless tips. At the corners. virtually impossible-to-find original GTS wheel covers front a set of 14-inch steel wheels wrapped in 205/75R14 BF Goodrich red-line tires. The theme of originality continues between the doors where a restored black vinyl interior offers exactly what the fender tag claims and nothing more. For you Mopar diehards. we'll cut to the chase and verify that the steering wheel is an original wood-grain unit recalled by the factory due to safety concerns. It's completely unrestored and that's totally understandable as the idea of boxing it up and shipping it to a stranger seems unthinkable. Behind the wheel there's a mint factory dash with all original instrumentation supplemented by a optional console-mounted tachometer. All the light and wiper controls look showroom fresh and the Dart Solid State radio still hangs in its factory spot. Down the center. a stainless-trimmed factory console makes room for the shifter. an ashtray. and plenty of storage while the bucket seats (with headrests!) look and feel brand new. The door panels sport Dart GT badges above the armrests and the black paint on the upper door frames looks every bit as nice as the exterior work. The Dart Light Package is a great touch as is the black vinyl headliner that stretches across the cabin. Behind the backseat. the trunk offers correct details. roadside tools. and a fresh trunk mat to match the quality passenger compartment. The sale of this rare GTS includes all the documentation you could hope for. The most important pieces include the original and well-maintained broadcast sheet. the original fender tag. the original Certicard. and Chysler historical documentation. Beyond that. vintage Chrysler corporation marketing. a Dodge Dart owner's manual. a DuPont paint chart. an owner history. a wiring diagram. and receipts round out the rest. As mentioned. the car has already received plenty of attention. claiming accolades such as:Chrysler Plant Car Show. August 26. 2012 Best A BodyMopars at Bakers.
