Dart values

Asked by Jun 11, 2011 at 04:51 PM about the 1970 Dodge Dart

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I have a four door dart that is either a 70 or a 72 - I'm not sure which because my owner's manual says one thing and the title says something else - I will do the research and find out what I need to know about the car, but I would like to sell this car, and I'm wondering where is the best place to find out what the value might be.  I don't know a lot about the car, although I've owned it for a few years, it was a car my daughter owned, and I acquired it as a payment of a loan, so I never felt a need to learn much about it.  Any advice would be appreciated!

The VIN is on the dash and on the inside of the driver's door somewhere. It'll start off L(x)41(x); the next character will be the model year. For example, LL41(x)2 would be a 1972, and so on. LH41(x- this positition is for the engine; most 225 slant sixes had a C here)3... would indicate a 1973, and such.

If you get me the entire vin (you can leave off the last six numbers if you'd like- that's the sequential production numer (i.e. 234567 meant it wsa the 234,567th vehicle produced at that plant that year) I can try to decipher the whole thing for you.

Thanks! LH41COR I hope I read it right - it's a pretty old windshield- Ann

The title should read the same as what you're seeing through the windshield- it's not beyond the pale for DMV to make a mistake, as they ARE government... it happens a lot. From the vin you gave, it's a 1970 model year.

Thank you Jay. I'm in the Pacific Northwest - do you have any suggestions as to where I can look to figure out the value?

As far as determining the value, it's only worth what someone will pay; check eBay and see what similar Darts- and Plymouth Valiants (basically the same car) are selling for and have sold for (the completed auctions option eBay gives you). Frankly a 4 door 1970 slant six Dart isn't going to be worth an awful lot- it's all going to depend on its condition; don't see one of the "hot rod" 2 door Darts, or even a fairly plain 2 door Dart that sold for big (relatively) bucks and think your grandma car is going to be similar in value- it won't be. A VERY nice one (and it's hard to say without seeing yours) might sell in the $4,000 range. A beat up, rusty, tired one might sell for $1,000.

Also, www.kbb.com and www.nadaguide.com can be helpful; both are used car value guides and they have sections devoted to old and collectible cars. :)

Thanks again Jay! I'll check out those sources, especially e-bay which I'm familiar with. I troll their Motorcycle listing frequently- I really appreciate the time you''ve taken to help!
