1965 Dodge Dart Review
273 is a powerful engine for this light weight car and 4bbl carb will snap your head back when you floor it!
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!
1965 Dodge Dart Review
Wagon. You could pack a lot of friends in there. It was cute in an retro sort of way.
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.

This machine was my first car. With $400 and buying it at night I actually came out on top. This car couldn't die, and had no ergonomics at all. No carpet, holes in the floor from rust. No trunk bott... Read More
