1968 Dodge Dart GTS It all happened in February 1968, when Dodge dealerships across the U.S. received promotional materials containing Chrysler\'s intention to sell factory-built Dart dragsters equipped with the company\'s most powerful V8.  It was assigned production code LO23, and it was built to meet Class B Super Stock racing specifications. Yup, it came with a no-warranty disclaimer.  But while Dodge\'s regular-production Hemi cars were put together at the company\'s plant, the Hemi Darts had to go to Hurst Performance in Madison Heights, Michigan, for the finishing touches. In reality, Hurst did a lot more than that because the Darts reached the company\'s conversion facility as partially assembled chassis.  In theory, the Hemi Dart was based on the GTS hardtop, but it went through radical modifications to become an LO23. While the Dart was already lighter than the Charger and the Coronet, Dodge took the opportunity and shaved even more pounds off the compact.  The regular steel fenders and hood were replaced with fiberglass panels, while the acid-dipped doors featured thinner glass and lacked window mechanisms (they were strap-operated). For consignment, a subdued appearing but extremely beefy Dart from the white hat guys.  This example is in excellent rust free condition with just a few cosmetic flaws from previous times showing up intermittently.  Awesome power thanks to a Ray Barton 528ci Hemi, and a racy interior with a non nonsense overall look and a roll cage, grab this one before it flies out the door, I\'d consider it a hat trick on the old circle cork board.  Topping it off is a great back story... Sold new at Jenkintown Dodge in Jenkintown, PA  to a machinist who enjoyed it as a street car for its first 2 years of existence, then pulled off the street to become a dedicated track only drag car.  As was the norm for the day, different parts and combinations were tried until success was met from the 340ci V8 with a tunnel ram and a Clutchflite transmission.  At this point the car was capable of clicking off low 11 to high 10 second passes in the 1/4 mile.  Come 1977 the owner retired from racing and the car was safely tucked away for the next 20 years.  Now presenting in the street legal GO FAST iteration before you, make sure your belts are tight as it\'s going to be one seriously fast pass. Exterior Straight steel panels rock your world painted in Medium Green Metallic which our consignor states is all original with the exception of the fiberglass hood and front fenders.  Speaking of the hood, it\'s a full pin-on lightweight variety in satin black with a tall and proud Hemi scoop giving a nod to the factory 1968 Hemi racers.  On front is a simple grille with a single headlight on either side and on the sides are round marker lights with doughnut shaped bezels on the rear which are kind of an iconic feature to these cars and up front we are sans markers on the fiberglass front fenders.  A thin white decal stripe graces the slab steel sides and sports a HEMI cutout on the front quarters.  Thin chrome trim graces the wheel openings and we note the rear wheel wells have been slightly opened up to accommodate much larger than stock tires.  On the B pillars is the quintessential Fratzog badge mounted securely to the consignor stated factory installed green vinyl roof.  One can then look slightly forward and see the rear curved in glass with small flying buttress B pillars.  On back a trio of horizontal tail and backup lights flare out to the sides and play off a central DODGE badged rear trim piece in aluminum and black paint.  GTS badging sits atop the trunk lid.  Wheelie bars peek out from underneath to help keep the front end from going completely skyward.  Old Skool Kewl 15-inch chrome Cragar wheels are wrapped in 195/65\'s up front and in the rear are massive 275/60R15 Mickey Thompson ET Streets.
