Pros

Very nice appearance and this same style of car was used on Dodge Dart's advertising brochure.  It was a real classy car. Dodge called it their "Little Imperial".

Cons

Because of it's reliability, it was driven to death; often abused and left as is until it was hauled off to the junk yards.  Rare to find one in good condition.

A Dependable Chyrsler Product — This car was my graduation present from my folks who bought it from Doering Dodge of Milwaukee, WI. Never gave me a bit of trouble and I could always depend on it starting up, even in the coldest winter day. Although it was purchased in WI it was a CA car and when I retired from flying it came to CO with me to spend the rest of it's life coddled in my garage and wrapped in a warm blanket now. This has been a loved and well cared for auto. Hard to believe its going to be 50 YEARS OLD next year. Fun to drive, place in shows and certainly holds its own right next to the Mustang of its day. Matter of fact, it much more of a rarity to own.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros

273 is a powerful engine for this light weight car and 4bbl carb will snap your head back when you floor it!

Cons

Tortion bar suspension is not such a good deal, can get springy on corners. 9 inch drums are not so hot with this much HP, disks were available then and should've been included.

I Call It My "not A Mustang" (nothing Against 'tangs But They're Everywhere) — You don't see these everywhere, especially w/ all this trim. They are essentially Barracudas but don't get the same love- and I like the underdogs. Even stock I can smoke most cars on the street including the new Chargers! (That was FUN!) There are no seat belts in the back seat so I'm going to add them, easy job. Not as easy as switching front drums for disks will be. Engine runs cool at prolonged high speeds, (San Diego to L.A. at 90-130) Temp gauge never went over 1/3 and car practically floated, loves the highway! Always gets thumbs up from strangers everywhere it goes. Fun car!

Pros

Wagon.  You could pack a lot of friends in there.  It was cute in an retro sort of way.

Cons

Lots of miles.

My First Car... — My first car...Dodge Dart Wagon...manual transmission (3 on the tree)...just $150 back in 1984. Loved the car in despite the clutch linkage breaking 4 times, replacing the transmission, windows were shot out, etc. Of course it had 300,000 miles on it but, it was good deal even back then. I sold it to a friend for $75 who drove it across the US and back.
