Thanks for chceking out thisgenuine 1969 M-code Dodge Dart GTS, actory-equipped with a 440ci engine. Factory B5 blue, lack interior, tripe-delete. This car is one of 640 NHRA homologation cars produced with a 440 engine for 1969 only, nd one of less than 40 M-code Darts currently known to exist.This car was purchased on May 20th, 969 at the Dick Landy Drag Racing Clinic at White Bear Dodge in St. Paul, N. From day one it was used as the factory intended - for the sole purpose of drag racing. I am just the second documented owner of this car, nd posses a clean Colorado title in my name.This Dart is 99% rust-free. Despite being a Minnesota car, t's never seen a snowflake. The odometer shows just 39,984 original miles.Sale includes extensive documentation, ncluding the original 1969 invoice, riginal 1969 registration card, riginal owners manual, olor copies of the previous title in the original owner's name, he original fender tag, oads of time slips, ewsletter articles, ace history, lass-champion plaques, tc. This car's original is original owner is well-known in the Midwest and is still building and racing some of the baddest Mopars in the country.The car was recently awoken from a deep 30-year sleep, nd is still unrestored per se. However, ver the course of the last three years it has received a $40,000 rebuild/refresh with preservation and period-correctness in mind. A few liberties were taken with respect to drive ability - factory Kelsey-Hayes disk brakes were added, or instance - but not many.The car presents itself very well, nd with its documentation, lows minds whenever shown - though cosmetically, he car remains unchanged with respect to the way it looked as it was last raced. The car still wears most of its mid-70's paint, nd is a spectacular example of an original, s-raced M-code... chips, ents, ipples, odifications... warts and all.Here are some details regarding what has been done to the car:Engine: 100% fresh 1969 440 w/ dated HP block, 06 heads with hardened seats, anley valves, RW pistons, V oil pump.

All machine work done right by Total Engine Service in Bloomington, N. Runs on pump 91. Original factory motor mounts (chromed in the 70's by original owner) with new isolators. This engine is correctly dated and numbered, ut is not the original motor to the car... please keep in mind that this car was competitively raced - The original block is long gone.Exhaust: New TTI chrome 2" x 3 1/2" headers. New complete TTI 2 1/2" system out the back. Sadly, do not possess the original exhaust manifolds.

Fender-well header holes were patched, ll incorrect holes filled, hen body worked and painted to match exterior. Another factory GTS hood located, ody worked and painted black; I still have the original hood but it has a "shaker" cutout in it as it was run in 1970. Complete firewall gasket kit installed. The wheel wells had been widened (not tubbed, ut stretched) by the original owner.. This work was undone - the wheel houses sliced and returned to stock width. The quarters are not perfectly straight as a result of this work and would need to be body worked to be perfect. But they are certainly authentic to the time period. Wheel lips cut and rolled also, nd decklid extensively lightened.Other: No heater; delete plates are riveted in place just like they were in '69. Original exhaust tips are included but not installed. New trunk mat. New Year-One 440 hood callouts. New hood weatherstrip @ rear.

Is it perfect? Not at all. But if you like old race cars, t is close.
