Description:

1971 Dodge Dart Swinger

There is a growing appreciation for cars that are just they way they were when they cruised the roadways back in their day. Unrestored, with a little evidence here and there that they were well loved and actually driven. This is one of those cars. It's kind of fun to consider that this Dart Swinger was considered a "compact car" in its day. Times have changed, but this car really hasn't. Check it out. Green was a... popular color in the early '70s, and this car wears its original coat of paint very well. The Dodge styling department did a nice job cutting some crisp, clean lines that fit the model name well. Or was the model named penned after they saw the car? Either way, the look and the name seem to fit. Up front a black and silver split grill has a single headlight on each side, is trimmed in polished stainless and underlined by the original chrome bumper. Out back, a black stripe wraps around the trunk and the ridge along the top of the fenders angles down smoothly blending into a substantial chrome bumper with quad rectangular taillights. The vinyl roof looks sharp contrasting nicely with the paint, there is a thin line of body side molding running front to rear, and polished brightwork trims out the fender wells and windows. Open the door and you will find a two-tone green interior that, like the body and paint, is in its original and unrestored condition. The door panel has a smooth rectangular section with the armrest, door handle and window crank set into it with the rest of it embossed in vertical lines. A three spoke steering wheel is dressed in the ventilated wrap that was so popular back in the day, and the shifter for the automatic transmission is mounted on the column. A long, rectangular speedometer and factory gauges are complimented by an Equus Pro Tach mounted to the left of the column, and auxiliary gauges to keep more accurate track of oil pressure and water temp mounted under the radio and ventilation controls. The dash pad as well as the driver's seat are showing their age, but overall, the two-tone vinyl interior looks pretty sharp. Pop the hood and you will find a tried and true 318 cubic inch V8 motor nestled down in a neat and clean engine bay. A chrome air filter housing adds a splash of flash and feeds plenty of fresh air to a Demon carburetor. A Weiand manifold takes over from there getting the mixture to the cylinders which are cleared out through long tube headers w head back through Flowmaster mufflers which give this car a nice healthy sound. Finned aluminum valve covers look sharp and an aluminum radiator keeps things running cool. A set of yellow spark plug wires really grab your attention and signs of good regular maintenance include belts and hoses that are in good condition as well as a fresh battery. The rubber meets the road through 215/60R15 tires mounted on a set of Cragar SS chrome wheels that were the most popular "mags" back in the day, but that you don't see that often anymore. An unrestored and original "compact car" from 1971. Come on down and check it out. You might decide to take a ride back to the '70s in it.
