Dodge had an interesting time trying to find the right formula for this Dart. First it was big, then small, then replaced, renamed, and redesigned until they landed on this one, which was just right. It was an instant market success and remained extremely popular for many years to follow.
Considered a "compact" car in its day, these cars were roomy on the inside but considerably smaller than most of the other American cars of the day, so were easier to drive and find a parking spot with. Today, this car's styling is delightfully 1960s in its factory correct White paint dressed up and highlighted in chrome. The hood slopes down smoothly to a crest near the front. The grill has a horizontal band in the center that has Dodge lettered through it with vertical bars above and below it. Single headlights are perched on the front of the fenders and a simple chrome bumper underlines everything nicely. A Dart badge appears on the front fenders and a line of chrome runs down the side from front to rear. The back of the car looks stylish with chrome trimming out the rear window and flowing along the top edge of fenders to the round taillights. Another sharp looking bumper underlines the trunk and Dodge is lettered into the trim just above it.
Open the door and you will find a stock interior in the factory correct color of Red that is most likely original to the car and is still looking good. The door panel is sharp sectioned in Red and White with chrome piping outlining it nicely. A red two-spoke steering wheel is wrapped with a white cover and has a semi-circular chrome horn ring. Behind it the dashboard is red on top with an aluminum and chrome panel containing the gauges and controls. On the left side you will find the cool Push Button controls for the automatic transmission. 1963 and 1964 were the only compact Darts so equipped. There is an "all transistor" AM push button radio still in resting in its place in the dash and an Audiovox FM radio mounted under the dash along with a dealer installed A/C system. Bench seats both front and rear are in good shape and comfortable with breathable cloth seating surfaces and smooth vinyl trim.
Under the hood is an engine with a reputation for being probably one of the most reliable engines of all time, the 225 cubic inch slant 6. This one starts and runs great and seems to be exceptionally strong. These engines are easy to maintain in part because you can actually get to everything easily. A simple air cleaner feeds the stock carb and intake while the plugs and oil filter are easy to reach too. Power flows back through that Push Button Torqueflite automatic transmission to the rear wheels mounted on leaf springs. Up front, torsion bars work through upper and lower control arms and radius rods to provide good handling and maneuverability. The rubber meets the road through white wall tires with chrome wheel covers that look just right on this car.
These cars were popular back in the day because they were the right size, comfortable and easy to drive. Today, nice examples like this one are appreciated for their 1960s styling as well as all those things that made them popular in the first place. Come on down and take a look at this one for yourself.
