This example is a fresh restoration and high performance built 1969 Black Dodge Dart Swinger restomod. This sinister black Mopar is outfitted with a built 360 V8, 4 speed console mounted transmission, upgraded suspension, 4 wheel disc brakes, a stiffened chassis, fresh sound system and this Dart sounds absolutely stunning with its dual exhaust and performance headers! Dressed in correct X9 code black with the red Swinger stripe adorning the rear end, this car's paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. Its body is straight and solid and has been stiffened with steel gusset plated shock towers, connected frame rails and a driveshaft loop, the engine bay is extremely attractive, the battery appears new and has new chrome bumpers that contrast perfectly with the fresh black paint. This Dart rolls on BFGoodrich g-force sport radials, size 225/50ZR16 in front and 255/50ZR16 in back. Each tire is mounted on an American Racing Torque Thrust five-spoke alloy wheels. The wheels and tires are all in very good condition. Under the hood is a 360 CID V-8 rebuilt in 2019, breathing via dual exhausts with performance headers, a Comp Cams Xtreme Energy Hi-Lift Camshafts with Hydraulic Flat Tappet, Duration 275/287, Lift .525/.525, Edlebrock 4 barrel carb, Procomp intake, upgraded front and rear sway bars and a Flame Thrower Billet Distributor full ignition system. Married to this motor is a four-speed manual transmission. With the increase in speed, this Dart takes advantage of the benefits of front and rear disc Wilwood brakes (self-adjusting, ease of inspection, better cooling, fade resistance, freedom from pull, and self-cleaning). Driver convenience features includes power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. Inside, the car's black interior has been augmented with several new parts. There are newer front bucket seats that look very comfortable. The matching black carpet is in very good order, as is the black headliner and three-spoke aftermarket steering wheel. At the driver's eye level on the left is an AutoGage tachometer and there are three aftermarket ancillary gauges mounted below the dashboard. The inner door panels and dashboard are in similar condition. There's a Hurst shifter in the center console and a modern Pioneer AM/FM/USB stereo with CD player in the dashboard and four speakers. The two-door sedan was dropped at the end of 1968 and replaced with the Swinger two-door hardtop for 1969. Also added was the Swinger 340. The entire 1969 Dart range received trim updates including another minor revision of the grille and a return to rectangular park/turn lights. The 1968 round side marker lights were replaced with rectangular reflectors. Head restraints were optional equipment until January 1, 1969, when their installation became mandatory under federal law. For 1963, Dodge made a last-minute decision to drop the Lancer name in favor of Dart for Dodge's newly designed "senior compact," a marketing term referring to the wheelbase having grown to 111 inches from the Lancer's 106.5 inches. This longer wheelbase used the same A-body suspension of the Valiant and defunct Lancer and would underpin all Darts from 1963 to 1976 except the 1963-1966 station wagons which used the Valiant's (106-inch wheelbase) and the 1971-1976 Demon/Sport which used the Plymouth Duster's 108-inch wheelbase. The longer wheelbase gave more rear seat legroom than the previous Lancer or its Plymouth cousin, the Valiant. By 1967, the Dart was available as a two- or four-door sedan, a two-door hardtop coupe, a two-door coupe and a convertible. Competition to this Dart in 1969 included AMC's Rambler, Chevrolet's Nova, Ford's Falcon and new-for-'70 Maverick and Plymouth's Valiant.
