Recently, Adam picked up a dream project of his- a 1973 Dodge Dart. It's old, has some rust but it has a promising future.For this first update, we want to show some of the beginning work he's done to it.
The vehicle was purchased with a Chrysler 440 that was build with 383 heads for higher compression and Dana 60 rear end. The overall plan for this vehicle is to remedy the rust issues and bring the body back to acceptable condition, adapt a 6-speed transmission from a late model Mustang, convert the suspension to either coilover or airbags, and do an overall upgrade to most of the vehicles safety systems.
The 440 will stay, but some decision still have to be made. For example, should he have an EFI live throttle body injector system, or a 4 barrel carb? Additionally, he'll need custom headers. Do we make them from scratch or find a set? This leads him into the suspension and his intentions. Adam's planning for coilovers in the front to eliminate torsion bars so he can gain more room for the custom heads and gain more modular ability for the suspension system itself. For the rear, Adams considering a 4 link suspension and coilovers to eliminate leaf springs. But nothing is set in stone, the possibility of bagging it has also been discussed.
It's coming together quite quickly, and the future for this resto-mod is looking promising. Make sure to stay up to date with our latest projects, and sales by subscribing to our newsletter here.
