1964 Dodge Dart 270 Wagon
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer this cool and super rare Dart Wagon. The current owner has preserved this wagon and made it his own. The original motor has been replaced by a stedfast 318ci V8, rebuilt and ready to roll. Speaking of rolling, the rear window mechanically rolls down, offering plenty of storage and/or tailgating in the back. The chronological list of work done to bring this vintage Dodge back is impressive, as are the distinctive looks of a model rarely seen anymore. The work includes items easily visible in the more than 150 high-resolution photographs of this car on GarageKeptMotors, as well as less visible, but extensive upgrades to the car's internals.
From 2010 to 2011, The car received an 8.75 A-Body Mopar rear end; new brake hardware; new wheel cylinders; turned brake drums; new polyurethane leaf-spring bushings; new rear air shocks, lines and valve; installation of a shortened drive shaft with new universal joints; new Cooper 5/8-inch whitewall tires; and all-new brake lines.The 318 V8 was installed with Summit chrome hardware kit; Summit braided hoses and ends; Summit chrome fuel pump; new timing chain set; Spitfire custom A body headers; Thrust chambered mufflers part of a 2 1/4-inch dual-exhaust system; 190-degree thermostat with chrome housing; new electronic distributor; Summit chrome high-performance coil; 8mm red sparkplug wires; new carburetor heat shield and spacer; new dual oil filters; custom-made high pressure/high temperature oil lines; and a new aluminum radiator. A 1969 727 TF transmission was rebuilt, upgraded, and installed by a veteran Chrysler mechanic, that included Kevlar clutches; “Hemi” 4.8-to-1 kick-down lever; braided stainless kick-down and throttle cables; TCI manual/auto valve body; B&M 2200 stall and SFI-approved flex plate; ARP torque-converter bolts, transmission cooler, and new lines; B&M shifter cable and more. The dash received a new three-gauge cluster and billet specialty steering wheel, upgraded upholstery, and a custom audio system with cargo-area-mounted subwoofers (fused amplifier is installed beneath the rear seat). On the outside, vintage aftermarket hubcaps with “bullets” were added. In 2012, the car's exterior was professionally renewed. Its exterior sheet metal was completely sanded, primed, sealed, and painted with three coats of white and three coats of urethane clear. Wheels were primed, painted (silver), and clear-coated. All exterior chrome trim was polished. New headlight bezels were sourced and installed.
This Dart Wagon is ready for the road, including heading for cars-and-coffee shows unlikely to be displaying a comparable model. So, the new owner better get ready to field questions and admiring stares. Have you ever seen a roofline as cool as this?!?
