Wrecks to Riches season one Barry's Speed Shop #10 L@@K for sale
Named the "POISON DART” during the filming of Discovery Channel's series “Wrecks to Riches” in 2005. Built by the famous Barry White and crew of Barry's Speed Shop SRRC in Corona. CA (supermusclecar. com/cars/dart/dart. html) and Ron Jenkins of Magnumforce Race Car Fabrication (magnumforce. com/magnumforce_tubular_kmember. htm); both very well known for quality craftsmanship. During the build. Rikki Rockett of the 80's rock band "Poison" autographed the center console and the "Poison Dart" name was born!
Started the transformation as a discarded 1969 Dart from Nevada with a solid. rust-free body that was stripped. blocked and painted a beautiful House of Kolor - Molly Orange with a matte black hood/scoop and trunk stripe. When it came to power. Barry replaced the stock 318ci for a Mopar Performance 472ci 550hp modern day Hemi! To deal with the extra heft and grunt. Barry called in Ron Jenkins to install one of his custom a-body tubular/racing k-members and weld in structural reinforcements and sub frame connectors to tie it all together.

Sold by Barry's Speed Shop in 2006 at the Russo and Steele auto auction to the sole owner since the build whom I purchased it from last year. In addition to the "filmed" $66. 00 auction price. the previous owner spent an additional $14. 00 by upgrading many of the off-the-shelf parts such as the exhaust with a fully hand welded work of art which included custom welded jet-hot coated headers. 3" custom welded stainless pipes with Magnaflow x-pipe and polished mufflers which not only looks awesome but sounds grrrreat and tucked up very nicely! He also added a much appreciated Gear Vendors Overdrive unit for effortless highway travel. cleaned up all the wiring. added subtle but necessary exterior touches and finally a set of Mooneyes tach. oil. volts and temp gauges.
Since I've owned it. I spent many hours and approximately $7. 00 perfecting an already close to perfect build. Most notably. the stock 727 torqueflight and B&M street converter were not up to the task. I chose LEVELTEN. COM performance transmissions to custom build the 727 to be a 900hp capable "bullet-proof" unit with a brand new billet 9" 3. 00 stall converter that really lays the power down.
Last but not least. I'm very particular about a clean and crisp throttle response so I contacted Hemi Specialist. John Arruzza who jetted and flowed a brand new pair of Edelbrock Thunder Series AVS 650cfm carbs specifically for my application as well as a fully blueprinted distributor. The end result is a crisp throttle response and excellent light to heavy throttle transition that's smooth and precise.
All this labor and attention to detail translates to a truly "turn key" custom built “Super Muscle Car” with all the top of the line parts. modern day comforts and the high quality fit and finish one expects from a “one off” custom muscle machine of this caliber and price point forever immortalized on film!
I have numerous magazines that feature the Poison Dart as well as the original framed hand drawn rendering with the autographs of all those involved in the build as well as a DVD of the episode and a vender presentation sign for car shows that goes with the sale.
