1968 Dodge Dart

This is a rare vintage 1968 Dodge Dart GTS ex - drag car project that was a regular 11 second runner at New England Dragway throughout the 1970's. It was taken apart in 1981 and left that way until now. Some of the parts were stored in a barn and others outside in the elements. The original 340 / 4 speed trans was sold off long ago. Let me point out that there is NO TITLE AND IS BEING SOLD ON BILL OF SALE ONLY. I will attempt to give a detailed description of the car's condition and what comes with it so that it is clear as to what it is all about. The original front suspension is complete and in nice condition. The K member has been notched with a torch in a couple of areas for drag oil pan clearance. The leaf spring hung rear axle is narrowed Dana 60 with aftermarket axles.I do not know whether it has a spool or a posi unit and not sure what the gear ratio is as I have never pulled the back cover. It has skinny Centerline front wheels / tires that hold air but have dry rot. It had rear Centerline's when it was raced but those have gone missing. The car is still wearing it's original red paint and has never had any bodywork so it is what it is. The front frame rails, firewall and cowl section are in nice condition with no rot or modifications. The inner fender wells have been cut for fender well headers. The fenders are straight but each have a rot issue in the lower dog leg area. The original GTS hood outer skin is in good condition except for the hole cut for a scoop but the inner structure is rotted badly. The grille and both bumpers are in good condition but the bumper chrome has patina. One of the headlight bezels is missing. The roof section is straight and rot free. The two doors are complete and are straight but have some rot in the lower inner panel corners. The two rocker panels are good and solid. The rear quarters both have rot issues and will need full quarter panels. The panels above and below the trunk lid are good and solid. The trunk lid outer skin is in good condition but the inner support is rotted and has been notched for some reason (see photo). The dashboard is complete but has a rot issue in the left bottom corner. An extra dashboard w/ dash pad that is in excellent condition is included. The rear window, quarter windows and door glass are all in very nice condition. The windshield got broken and tossed. The tail light assemblies are in good condition but the chrome on the bezels have some pitting...the lenses are missing. The floor has a good solid trans tunnel and the front floor section is good except for a spot in the heel area below the gas pedal. The floor section that would be under the bucket seats does have a partial rot issue as well as the pans between the front and rear seat. The floor under the rear seat is nice and solid. The trunk pan is also in good condition with some minor issues. As you can see in the photos..it has been tubbed to accomodate drag slicks. There is a factory bottom floor support on each side in the front seat area that is solid but was notched with a torch for header collector clearance. The vin # LS23P8B329957 is on the dash but the inner fender well tag is currently missing. As far as the interior is concerned there is one original bucket seat, (2) door panels that are shot but have the GTS metal badges and the headliner which is toast but all of the bows are intact. There is a pile of misc. parts that come with it that include the dashboard and seat I mentioned, dash panels & controls, AM radio, window trim moldings, quarter glass windows, hood & trunk hinges, rear panel molding, etc... Please look over the photos closely and feel free to contact me with any questions by message or you can reach me, Scott @ 401 624 8030. The car is located in Tiverton, Rhode Island and you are welcome to come look at it if you like. The $500 deposit is non-refundable and the shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. Thanks
