The 1969 Dodge Dart is a terrific muscular-looking compact, and so it's the perfect place to invest $$$$ thousands into making it a serious supercharged Pro Street machine. But more than just pure power, they also took their time to make this coupe a looker.
The Darts really had a terrific body. There are crisp lines with blocky styling, and the fenders extend an extra few inches front and rear. The result is a coupe that looks larger and more imposing than the rest in its class. And highlighting these lines is a newer application of Omaha Orange. It was part of a comprehensive restoration/transformation investment that was done over the last dozen years while this hardtop has been under quality care. You can tell they took the time to prep the body before the first drop of paint when on by the car's overall crisp quality. And it looks so distinct that other elements like the bumpers and shin spoiler were painted to match. But there's also a dark side to this one. After all, we all instantly noticed the lightweight fiberglass hood with the scoop so big it looks like it wants to inhale all the lesser cars on the road. And the black here nicely coordinates with the rear GT stripe, blackout front end (with LED headlights), and blacked-out rear panel for a very uniform and sporty look.
The interior has plenty of race-ready style. There's a full roll cage, five-point racing harnesses, full AutoMeter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges, and a Precision Performance Products Kwik-Shift shifter. And we particularly like the leather racing seats borrowed from a 2nd gen Dodge Viper (keeping it in the Mopar family.) There is an impressive level of fit and finish on this one. Full carpeting, a nice headliner, a clean back seat delete, a finished trunk, and well-done upholstery are not what you find on many pro street builds. Even the dome light is working. So while you already know there's a monster under the hood, this one also has a pleasantly surprising level of civility. You can tell it was built with care.
The engine bay may have serious power, but your first impression might just have you thinking about all the car show awards you're going to win with this one. And beyond the style is a ton of substance. It's a 383 cubic-inch big block stroked to 438ci total. It's a fully built setup that includes a Comp Cams camshaft, Comp Cams solid lifters, ARP bolts, 440 Source's Stealth aluminum heads, a Mopar M1 single plane intake, and topped with a Holley Sniper electronic fuel injection. Plus, a Paxton Novi 1500 supercharger means serious added power right from the start. It's supported by the right pieces, including an MSD ignition, an aluminum radiator w/electric fan, a high-flow water pump, an Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator, and a 20-gallon fuel cell in the rear. There are even provisions for a NOS system! Equal-length heads snake their way under the car feeding into the Flowmaster mufflers and out the wide side pipes. The Torqueflite 727 A transmission is said to be rebuilt and fortified to handle up to 1,000 horsepower, and it has a reverse manual valve body for the ultimate in control. This feeds into a Ford 9-inch rear and Strange Engineering axles. And making sure the power meets the pavement is a ladder bar rear, a custom Panhard bar, and its tubbed to fit those massive Mickey Thompson E/T Street tires.
This was a passion project, and so we have a detailed list of the quality components and receipts that went into this build. We'll be happy to share all the full info about this special Dart and all the magazines it has already been featured in. Cars of this level rarely leave their creator's hands.
