A practically flawless American vintage compact car with magnificent appearance and alluring driving characteristics
The Dodge Dart is a challenging vintage American automobile to analyse since its size and design
It began life as a full-sized sedan in 1960, evolved into a mid-sized multi-body for the 1962 model year
Dodge had already remodelled it once more as a more compact size. In three years, there have been three separate generations.
Despite Dodge's early indecision, the Dart would stay a compact for the remaining thirteen years of its production,
V8 to increase its competitiveness against rivals like the Ford Falcon, Mercury Comet, and Chevrolet Nova.
The 1964 Dodge Dart GT stood apart from the rest of the lineup, which included the entry-level Dart 170 and the mid-range 270
for two reasons: first, it was only offered as a 2-door hardtop or convertible, and second, its interior design was unique.
In terms of engine options, consumers could choose any of the three available engines for their Dart GT as long
The base engine was a 2.8-liter slant-six with 101 horsepower, and while it performed admirably once it got going,
Darts equipped with this engine took more than 20 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph.
The next slant-six in line had a 3.7 litre displacement with a combined output of 145 hp.
