1968 Dodge Dart GTS 383 - Silver (Highway 61) 1/18


Dodge Dart GTS - 'Compact' Muscle Car!"

The 1968 Dodge Dart GT Sport provided sporty appearance and smooth handling to the muscle car enthusiast. Coming off a banner year of sales in 1967, when the Dart was the automobile industry's most popular regular-sized compact, in 1968 Dodge set forth to increase sales through wider-market appeal. Dart's fresh new style and addition of a GT Sport model (or GTS as it also known), accomplished all Dodge's goals and more!

The hot ticket in the 1968 Dodge Dart Sport was the optional 383 cubic-inch engine. Imrovements to the venerable 383 for '68 included new cylinder heads (with chrome valve covers), intake manifold and low-restriction exhaust. Redline striped wide-track tires, along with the Rallye Suspension package provided a firm ride with higher speed handling and cornering ability. Two hood "power bulges" with chrome vented trim and contrasting GT trunk stripes completed the look. A limited 426 Hemi powered Superstock version was available for the most serious speed enthusiasts, but was highly encouraged for use on the track and NOT public streets, roads or highways.
