1962 Dodge Dart 440, 3 spd PB auto tranny, 4 Dr Sedan. Showing 55000 mi.
with about 7000 mi on overhauled 313 cid V8 "Semi Hemi" which is
running good. The vehicle was retrieved from farmers field with around
48000 showing in 2002 after sitting there since 1974. It was not well
preserved in fact quite ugly however the resurrection went quite well
and the car has been my regular ride since summer of 2012. The
restoration was done by vintage enthusiast who are not "professionals"
so it is not perfect. The running gear, steering, drum breaks, dual
"Cherry bomb" exhaust etc are all recent. No pwr for steering or brakes.
There is minor rust, I think the trunk floor is worst. I have added new
15" aluminium wheels and have the original 14" wheels & tires. The
heater box control shaft is siezed but system does work. The clock
adjusting shaft has broken off. Turn signals are not "auto off". There
is a "Retro Radio" installed. I have history since it's return to
service including original owner info and some pictures as it was being
recovered from boon-docks. I've owned it for last 4 years and drive it
regularily, even today. It does need some professional touches but has
the potential of a real "Classic". Regular service and maintenance all
done by pro shops since taking ownership.
