After much commercial success in the early 1960’s, Dodge revamped the Dart in a major way with the GTS for ’67, ’68 and ’69. The Dart received a much larger engine for compartment to make room for the new V8 option which included a variety of trick GTS V8 options. The GTS weighed in at less than 3,000 lbs and could be had with the 383 engine with a 330 horsepower version available in 1969. Take that, Nova SS! These specially equipped cars came with highflow exhaust systems, the Rallye suspension and the unique color palette available with the MOPAR line up. Dodge made some suspension changes to the GTS when the 383 was ordered including a larger front torsion bar and front sway bar, as the power was on the high side for these smaller bodied cars.
This 1969 Dodge Dart GTS is a super sleeper equipped with the potent 383 CI 330 HP engine, heavy duty 727 transmission and 8/34 rear end. The car has just test miles on it since a complete rotisserie restoration back to original specification. It is beautifully finished from top to bottom and ready for your collection. The car comes with the build sheet and original fender tag.
The GTS is finished in Dark Green Metallic over a body that was stripped down to bare metal and completely redone on a rotisserie. The paint is a base/clear job that has a fine polished shine to it and the body is very straight. The chrome on the car is new, and all of the trim which was removed for paint was polished before it was put back on the car and looks wonderful. Even the often neglected wing windows were rechromed. All of the rubber trim on the vehicle is new from front to rear and the doors and trunk close with ease.
The engine is not the born-with motor but is date code correct for the car. The motor was just completely rebuilt as was the 727 transmission and 8 3/4 rear end. The engine compartment is immaculately detailed and features all of the correct lines, hoses, clamps and finished. The VIN of the car is stamped on the radiator support.
The interior is all new and features the correct factory color. The car was originally ordered heater delete from the factory! I guess someone was going straight to the track! The seat covers have excellent fitment as does the headliner and dash. The car has the correct solid state AM radio as it did from the factory and it is in good working order. All of the gauges work as they should as do all of the interior and exterior lights.
