'69 340 Dart

Recommended Posts

This is a re-do of an older build...

I replaced the 383 big block automatic with a resin 340 4speed, and modified the interior to make it a non-console four speed hump.

I went with a Fireball Holley, a resin dual snorkel breather, some Fireball resin BFGs and a set of Cragars from a '66 Nova.

The old, too-thick urethane was stripped from the body, a vinyl roof was added and the Light Bronze comes from some thinned nail polish followed by a single coat of automotive clear.

The flat hood is a Hart's Parts piece. Wish it would stay flat... 

I spent waaaayyyy too long getting through this, but I'm happy how it sits. Built more as a Day Two car than a stock 340 car.

Comments always welcome. :)

Great looking car! Love the Cragars and the color! Clean build and it's a good color choice on a Dart.

Thanks for the comments. :)

Yup: the bumper guards are in the kit, and the carb is one of those excellent Fireball pieces, as are the tires.

The dual snorkel is one of many copies I made from the '71 Charger kit.

My cousin had one of these.  He was as wild as the car was.  Yours is a good re-creation.
