There are some cars out there that simply exude an attitude that can only be described as tough. This 1967 Dart is one of those cars. Dark blue paint with a black tail stripe, steel wheels, a muscled up 340 engine and a spartan but functional interior all equal one thing and that’s “success” on the streets if you know what we mean. This 340 has been bored over, topped with aluminum heads, stabbed with a cam, and generally worked over hard enough to really be a player out there during the late night muscle car street fights. If you have ever heard a truly angry 340 Chrysler small block, you know that there is nothing that sounds like it. Depending on the cam and other factors, these engines normally sound like they are about to fall apart but when the throttle blades open it is mechanical music all the way. The .580 lift solid roller may help to make that kind of noise.
Here’s the text of the ad right from eBay. The seller does a better job with the details than we ever could. We are just in love with the looks of this one and any time you pulled into a cruise night, car show, or the drag strip, people would surely take notice. Like a bar brawler clenching his fists while sizing up a room, this Dart seems to be looking for a fight all the time. Here’s the rest of the details on the car –
