Dodge was deciding on whether to phase out their slumping Lancer model for the re-incarnation of their Dart nametag and with a last-minute decision, the Dart went into its third generation in 1963. The newly designed and released Dart was an instant success as the sales went higher than the Lancers of the previous year. They were given the marketing term “senior compact” as an attempt to describe its longer wheelbase of 111 inches, although the Wagon was to keep the same as the previous Lancer of 106.5 inches still. Three trim levels were offered: the low-spec 170, the high-spec 270, and the premium GT, which was available only as a 2-door hardtop or convertible.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this well-worked and performance-minded example of the 1966 Dodge Dart 270 Wagon for your consideration. Making a monster out of a wagon model is quite the unique idea but with a shorter wheelbase than the others, a more tuned suspension and plenty of room for modifications, the Dart Wagon became the popular choice since inception and this is a shining example of that! From the outside, this ride keeps a great deal of its originality intact with its classic lines and design untampered with except for its Mopar hood scoop. The rich, dark blue used has a great metallic flake to it, the wheels have been replaced with a great set of off-set American Racing Hobster wheels which have an extra inch in the rear but overall this vehicle is very much a sleeper. The performance end was certainly the focal point to this body-up restoration. With a beefy 378 engine with its 750 Holley 4bbl, Mopar aluminum intake installed, a 590 solid lift camshaft and a great set of Edelbrock ported, polished and flowed aluminum heads installed, this vehicle is believed to be able to push over 450 hp! Also added to this great ride was a set of Dougs ceramic headers, electronic ignition system, Mopar performance valve covers, front disc brakes, a manual valve body transmission with the 9” converter, aluminum radiator and even an aluminum water pump, no corners were cut and many other great installs have been completed in this build.

The interior is also a very nostalgic feel as the dash is kept very original but with a nice set of Sun gauges and a VDO tachometer installed, the seats are spread with a wonderful blue cloth fit to perfection, the roll cage is about the most distinguishing thing that may give you away but also allows for some track time if you have the plans to do so! Many more great things to be said but not enough room, call or email us today for an even closer look at this beautifully built Dart Wagon!
