This 1969 Dodge Dart GTS Is One Of The Cleanest Restorations On The Market

-


The Dart GTS is one of the models that helped reinforce Dodge’s image as a performance-oriented brand among young vehicle buyers in the 1960s. Its 300-hp output was more than enough for its compact design and appearance.

Here’s a yellow 1969 Dodge Dart GTS that is lurking inside the Volo Museum in Volo, Illinois. Repainted to its original color, this Dart GTS still comes with a number-matching original 383-ci big block engine. It’s a great find for those looking for a classic Dodge.


Repainted To Original Yellow With Rare Bucket Seats

According to Jay Grams of the Volo Museum, this 1969 Dodge Dart GTS is a rust-free car with original metal. The compact muscle comes repainted in its original yellow smooth glossy finish, although a GT stripe has replaced its bumblebee decal stripe. Its vinyl top still looks great. Its original glass, bumpers, GTS rear tail panel trim, door handles, and grill are also all good. This Dart GTS rides on 14-inch deep rims with dog dish hubcaps.

Inside, this Dart GTS features bucket seats and a console, as well as a clean dashboard. Jay remarked that its bezels, heater controls, and factory AM-FM radio remain in excellent shape. Featuring a new glovebox liner, the car comes with a deluxe steering wheel with a vintage Moon tachometer. Its floor carpets are still in good condition, while its door panels and upholstery look new. Jay added that the car also comes with a replacement headliner.

383 Big Block Engine Rebuilt With Upgraded Transmission

Under the hood of this 1969 Dart GTS is a numbers-matching original 383-ci big block motor. Although it looks stock externally with the correct exhaust manifolds, valve covers, air cleaner, and carburetor, the 383 engine features performance internal upgrades, thanks to a rebuild.

Its distributor, alternator, and horns are still in good condition, and so are its original Mopar radiator, shroud, and Mopar reproduction battery. In addition, this Dart GTS features an upgraded 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission with a performance stall converter.

This Dart GTS also comes with a complete front-end rebuild kit. Its rear end features a solid dual exhaust with crossover pipe and factory-style chrome tips. Some parts are already replacements such as its brakes and fuel tank.

Meanwhile, the car features an immaculate underbody with solid floors, frame rails, rockers and lower quarters are solid. The trunk comes with the original mat, as well as a complete jack and spare assembly.
