“Put a bigger, more powerful engine in a smaller, lighter car… and you will almost always have a faster trip down the strip.” – Hemmings, February 2018
Here's how Chrysler Corporation described its new, '67 Dodge Dart GT in a magazine ad back in the day: “There's a new way to go. Big-new, all-new Dodge Dart GT for 1967. And if its obvious beauty and fresh styling don't turn you on, maybe this list of standard equipment will. An all-new vinyl interior. Bucket seats. Carpeting, front and rear. Retractable front lap belts. Redesigned, recessed instrument panel. Curved side glass. Unique, concave rear window. And more… much more luxury than you'd expect from a car carrying a compact price. Add to this a choice of Six or V8 power and a dozen or more safety features, and you've got quite a car. … The Dodge Rebellion wants you.”
Offered here is a beautifully maintained and perfectly refreshed 1967 Dodge Dart GT 2-door hardtop in a striking color combination: metallic burgundy over white. The car's odometer shows 82,448 miles, or just over 1,500 miles per-year on average since new. This is muscle-car-era MOPAR performance in a smaller, but potent package.
Thanks to a highly professional re-spray, the car's exterior metallic-burgundy paint is in near-showroom condition, uniformly glossy and deeply reflective across the entire body. There are no dings, no dents, no noteworthy flaws on any body panel. The factory's restrained use of chrome trim made for an appealing, restrained design; some chrome shows light patina from age. The recessed front grille and chrome bumper are in perfect condition. Bodyside trim emphasizes the horizontal body lines and graceful roof profile. Rear-deck metal trim and chrome bumper appear close-to-new. The “GT Dart” white stripe horizontal across the rear deck leaves no one mistaking what model just passed them. Dual rectangular chrome exhaust tips add emphasis. All factory emblems—“Dodge” letters on the hood, “GT” emblem in the front grille, “273” engine badge and “Dart GT” front-fender emblems, and another “Dart GT” emblem on the rear deck—are all in place. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are virtually perfect, clear and free of cracks. Simulated 5-spoke full wheel covers feature the Dodge Division's logo. Period-correct red-stripe tires are mounted.
The car's interior could not have looked much better the day it rolled off the assembly line. Fold-forward front bucket and the rear bench seat are upholstered in horizontal-pattern white vinyl, with brushed-metal trim pieces in each seating position. Door-panel trim mirrors the upholstery design and adds burgundy exterior-body-color painted metal (a design component most Chrysler cars of the period featured), and tasteful, brushed-metal “Dart GT” emblems. Side vent windows are push-pull; cranks operate the roll-up glass. The dashboard has an attractive horizontal-look design with a padded burgundy top. A handsome sport-design steering wheel with woodgrain rim and three chrome spokes frames standard factory instruments, with a column-mounted Sunpro® tachometer and auxiliary oil-pressure gauge below the dashboard added. The factory “Dart All Transistor” AM push-button radio remains mounted in the center-dash position. The shift lever for the 4-speed manual transmission is floor-mounted. Burgundy carpeting covers the cabin floors.
Under the hood, a pristine engine bay houses the perfectly clean, original 273 cubic-inch small-block V8. A chrome air cleaner identifying the engine as a “Charger 273 Four Barrel” and finned valve covers as well as other chrome bits add flair to the presentation. All components are present and correctly installed; all hoses and wiring are properly routed. Viewed from below, the car's chassis appears nearly perfect. The full-length, free-flow exhaust system is properly routed and pristine.
While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this Dodge Dart GT in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
This Dart GT is ready for show or go. And if a cars-and-coffee show or MOPAR-enthusiast gathering is the destination, don't expect much competition for stares and compliments. This is likely to be the sole Dart GT around, and will almost certainly be a crowd-pleasing star among all the muscle-car entries.
