This 1965 Dodge Dart is a non-running project that was acquired by the seller in 1996 and has remained stored outdoors since 2017. The car is finished in blue over a blue interior and fitted with a replacement 373ci stroker V8 mated to a 904 three-speed automatic transmission, which are said to have been installed in 2012 but have not been operated. Equipment includes an 8¾ rear axle with a Sure-Grip differential and 3.91:1 gears, a Mopar aluminum intake manifold, Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads, Doug’s Headers manifolds, relocated rear leaf springs, a B&M shifter, and an AM radio. It is unknown when the car was last run and further sorting of the drivetrain, cooling, fuel delivery, and braking systems is required. This Dart project is offered at no reserve with spare parts, service records, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The car is finished in blue and features polished body-side trim, V8 badging, a locking fuel cap, and chrome bumpers. The paint is bubbling in several areas, and the roof finish is peeling. Rust is visible in the drip rails,and the mirror glass is missing.
The car wears three polished steel wheels and an alloy wheel that are mounted with older mismatched tires. A set of chrome wheels and aluminum wheels are included in the sale. The rear leaf springs have been relocated, and the car is fitted with four-wheel drum brakes.
The cabin features front and rear bench seats upholstered in blue vinyl joined by a matching carpet and door panels. Equipment includes a B&M floor shifter, an AM radio, lap belts, polished door sills, and a dash-mounted ignition switch. The driver’s seat cover is torn in several places, the carpeting is soiled, and the headliner is sagging.
The leather-wrapped steering wheel frames a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for fuel level, coolant temperature, and battery charge. The five-digit odometer shows 47k miles, approximately 70k were added by the seller. Total mileage is unknown.
The 373ci stroker V8 was machined, bored .030″ over, and assembled by ALC Machine of Santa Rosa, California in 2007 with the following components:
- 340ci V8 engine block
- Edelbrock aluminum cylinder heads
- Mopar aluminum intake manifold
- Keith Black forged pistons
- Hughes rocket shafts and spacers
- Mancini Racing windage try
- Aluminum roller rockers
- ARP rod bolts
- Lunati camshaft and lifters
- Melling high-volume oil pump
- Summit harmonic balancer
- Doug’s Headers exhaust manifolds
The engine has not been started, and the cooling and fuel systems are missing.
A 904 three-speed automatic transmission and an 8¾ rear axle with a Sure-Grip differential and 3.91:1 gears are fitted. There is no driveshaft or exhaust system, and the fuel tank is damaged and will require repair.
A collection of spare parts including a Holley carburetor, a Hayden transmission cooler, Mopar electronic ignition and a distributor, Wilwood front disc brakes, Taylor ignition wires, mufflers, and KYB shock absorbers are included in the sale.
