1968 Dodge Dart GTS for sale
I reserve the right to yank the listing if it sells locally.
In 1968. Rudy Claar walked into his local Dodge dealership and ordered this car when he was 57 years old!
I rather think he had good taste in his color choice and was a good steward of this car holding on to it until he was well into his 80s. He must have been a man who loved this machine.
It was finally sold to a man who intended to restore it after his purchase in the 90s but lost interest in it eventually and sold it to the man who did restore it having completed it in 2015.
Shortly after completion. it was placed in competition by him at the 2015 MOPAR NATS in A BODY ORIGINAL and it took second place in that class with 510 points.
I acquired it after that and have done very little to it. I've only driven it about 20 miles and it's only been driven about 60 miles since being restored.
A body Darts are SELDOM found restored to this standard. When found. are they EVER found in this color and/or at this option level?
The car is equipped with front and rear bumper guards. fender mounted turn signals. light package. dual side view chrome mirrors. and tinted glass as well as the aforementioned options above.
The stripe was deleted by Mr Claar at the time of his order and it WAS devoid of any stripe when the restoration was completed last year BUT I just applied a correct white tail stripe and will add additional pics of it wearing the stripe soon.
The engine and transmission are original to the car and yes. both were rebuilt.
The dash finish and paint. I was told. are original to the car (and appear so) reflecting the care it received. Only the plastic chrome was refinished. The VIN tag still looks fresh. too and. YES. I have the build sheet. owner's manual. and the metal certicard. The fender tag is in place as well. This strongly supports the story that it was always garaged.
I added the Halibrand look. aftermarket 15" wheels and a set of 215 65 R15 Diamondback III Radials. freshened the trunk. and added a space saver spare to allow a flatter trunk floor.
I also have the five 14x5. 5 rims that came with the car AND THEY'VE NOT HAD ANY CAPS INSTALLED ON THEM SINCE PAINTED. The FIVE wheels were painted red when the car was restored. The four wheel covers are also included.
Attention to detail is apparent everywhere. It even smells right!
1113 GTS Hardtops with a 383 and Torqueflite were built for 1968 according to one source. Of those. how many remain 48 years later? Of those. how many were built as this one was?
This is undoubtedly one of the finest big block Darts available and. factoring in the color. should make this car irresistable to any thinking Mopar fan. A body fan. or any musclecar enthusiast anywhere in the world who wants a non run of the mill Dart in a stunning color combo from the golden age of American street performance.
MANY believe the 1968 Dart is the only year Dart to own for a variety of reasons so here is an opportunity for the right steward and in RED/PEARL WHITE. TOO! Don't be one of those who grow to lament letting this very special GTS get away.
DODGE FEVER. ANYONE?
Study the pics and ask questions. please. and to answer those that have asked about a trade. yes. trades are certainly something I am not unwilling to consider.
