Often the challenge with finding a suitable Mopar restoration project is finding an example that hasn’t been chopped up or modified into a street machine.  This bucket-seat-equipped, 273 cubic inch V8 equipped 1967 Dodge Dart GT convertible originally listed in June 2022 on Craigslist in Dafne, Alabama (Mobile) appears to be a very solid example that features a freshly rebuilt engine and a new convertible top.

The Dart and its sister model—the Plymouth Valiant—were substantially redesigned for the 1967 model year. In addition to new styling, the cars received revised steering systems, wider front track, and frame rail spacing, and redesigned K-members capable of accepting larger engines.  The 1967 redesign removed all traces of the older Virgil Exner styling that proved less popular by the early 1960s.  The newer body was trimmer and proved extremely popular, causing sales of the Dart to surpass compacts from Ford and GM.  The styling proved to be so popular the Dart kept this basic form with only minor facelifts until the end of A-body production in 1976 for North America.

As part of the redesign, Chrysler limited body styles to two- and four-door sedans, a two-door hardtop, and a convertible. The base 170 model was now badged simply as “Dart”. The 270 and GT versions carried on unchanged for the most part.
