Golden Anniversary: 1964 Dodge Dart Convertible – SOLD!

Jun 2020 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Topless Thursday

July 15, 2020 Update – We just confirmed the seller of this Dodge Dart GT convertible just deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “Sold!”

June 17, 2020 Update:  last week the seller of this anniversary edition 1964 Dodge Dart GT provided an updated listed for this right-sized four-passenger convertible we first featured in mid-April.  While the price remains the same, the seller added a number of higher quality pictures showing the great condition of this one repaint Dart.

Dodge celebrated its 50th anniversary in 1964, so to celebrate they offered special paint that this Dart GT convertible originally listed in May 2020 on Craigslist in Bowleys Quarters, Maryland with a revised lower price of $10,900 as we went to press.  A review of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his Dart GT priced between the #3 “Good” appraisal of $12,400 and the #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $8,600.

Redesigned for 1963, Dodge made a last-minute decision to drop the Lancer name in favor of Dart for division’s newly designed “senior compact”, a marketing term referring to the nearly five-inch lengthened wheelbase of 111 inches.  This longer wheelbase used the same A-body suspension of the Valiant and defunct Lancer, and would underpin all nearly Darts from 1963 to 1976 except station wagon and Demon variants. The longer wheelbase provided more rear-seat legroom and Dodge offered three trim levels: the low-spec 170, the high-spec 270, and the premium GT featured here, which was available only as a 2-door hardtop or convertible.  The Dart was an instant market success, with 1963 sales up sharply compared to those of the 1962 Lancer.  1964 was the last year for pushbutton control of the optional Torqueflite automatic transmission while other new features included stronger door locks and a refined automatic choke.  To celebrate’s Dodge’s 50th anniversary, a special Anniversary Gold paint and trim scheme such as what’s featured on the car here carries.

Here’s a commercial highlighting the ’64 Dodge Dart GT:

If you’re for a nicely sized four-passenger classic convertible that can fit in your garage but don’t like the idea if a thirsty V8, this compact Dodge Dart GT featured here makes a compelling alternative.  The extensive pictures provided what appears to be a very solid example in a rare paint color.  Good luck with the purchase!
