The year is 1962, US President John F. Kennedy imposes naval blockade on Cuba, beginning the missile crisis and Dr. No, 1st James Bond film based on the novel by Ian Fleming and starring Sean Connery and Ursula Andress, premieres in London. That same year this beautiful Dodge Dart 330 rolled off the assembly line. Since then she has been meticulously maintained. Only 50,534 original miles. All original interior, and repainted about 10 years ago. The 413 CID Golden Lion V8 topped with dual four-barrel carbs is backed by a cool push button Torqueflite automatic. 1962 being the first year of the second generation of the Dart. The Seneca, Pioneer, and Phoenix trim levels were dropped; trim levels became Dart, Dart 330, and Dart 440. The Polara 500, offered in 2-door hardtop, 4-door hardtop, and convertible styles, was dimensionally identical but not officially a Dart by dint of its Polara 500 badging. The Polara 500 was not built or sold in Canada, and the Dart models were the same as in the U.S. except that the base model was badged Dart 220. The 1962 Dart, like the Plymouth, was on a new lightweight unibody B platform, featuring Chryslers well-received Torsion-Aire torsion bar front suspension and asymmetric rear leaf springs. The rigidity gained through the nearly pure unibody platform combined with the suspensions low unsprang weight and near-ideal geometry provided sound handling, braking, and acceleration; the latter especially with the mid-year 415 HP Ramcharger 413 CID V8 which was aimed primarily at sanctioned drag racing, where it quickly broke performance records.
