""The Dart Game""     1969 Dodge Dart

Introduction / Overview:

This is my old Dart I built in 1976. A Classic. It has twin Schwitzer (Borg Warner) turbos are feed by a Holley 800 Double Pumper. It was a 345cid with TRW Blower Pistons, and Crane Valve Train. I have no idea as to the HP but it ran a 9.62 at 132mph. (That was before the bottom end blew out going thru the lights!) I got a lot of looks. Back then Turbos were only fornd on John Deere Tractors or Mack Trucks. Thanks to Crane and Goodyear for supplying their products on this car and my current project!
