The Dodge Dart Page

Introduction

The compact Dodge Dart (based on the Chrysler A-body) was produced from 1963 to 1976, although there were larger Dodge Darts built prior to 1963. Approximately 3.7 million compact Darts were sold, and the car rapidly gained a fine reputation for durability and longevity. Dodge Darts were sold and driven all over the world, and country-specific versions of the Dart were sold in Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, and Australia, among others. Body styles were varied, including two- and four-door sedans, two-door hardtops, two-door fastbacks (the Demons and Dart Sports), and convertibles. Even a station wagon was produced from 1963 to 1966. Engine choice was broad as well, ranging from the fabled slant-six to some very powerful V8 engines, which could move the relatively small Dodge Dart with alacrity. Three- and four-speed manual transmissions were available, but the most popular transmission was the three-speed automatic Torqueflite. See Valiant Varieties (non-local) for additional historical information on the Dart and Valiant.
