This 1967 Dodge Dart Restomod is such an awesome build that it was even the personal vehicle for the developer of the fuel injection system
That means this was finished to a higher standard, because it also needed to be a show car. So look over every inch – including the undercarriage – and you’ll see a clean professional build with a monster under the hood.
This build comes from the people at SS and AFX in New River, Arizona. Those who know classic Mopars also know they are obsessed with getting it right when it comes to NHRA-style Darts. That means starting with a full rotisserie restoration where every nut and bolt is scrutinized. And you can instantly see that level of quality on this example, especially with only been about 6,000 miles since completion. The sheetmetal has lines crisp enough to cut glass; the body gaps are more exacting than from the factory; and the big chrome bumpers nicely contour the Dart’s unique shape. This craftsmanship is all highlighted particularly well thanks to a super-slick application of metallic blue borrowed from Lamborghini’s palette. And it has all the right speedy details, like the orange sport stipe on the rear, and the 15-inch Center Line polished aluminum wheels (with extra wide ones in the rear to really show you where the power meets the road.) And those vertical stacks are absolutely menacing poking out of the hood.
Your first impression of the interior might just be an expertly restored back to stock. After all, the low-back bucket seats, carpeting, door panels, and steering wheel all have a factory-fresh look and feel. But then you start to notice how much of a racer this really is. The back seat is removed for weight savings and to allow wider wheels. Plus, the gauges have been replaced with a Racepak Data Systems UDX module that provides a full information package on the digital LCD display. And have you counted the number of gears on the Hurst shifter yet?
You’re going to love lifting the hood and showing off this monster motor. After all, the smooth painted fender walls and firewall funnel all your attention to this 6.1-liter Hemi V8. And have you noticed that everything is finished in blue, orange, and chrome, just like the exterior? So the engine bay can win you awards all on its own. And those vertical stacks are the key to why this motor looks so awesome. This coupe belongs to the owner of Imagine Injection Co. It’s a company that specializes in giving cars the look of a race carb/intake arrangement, but it actually hides a modern fuel-injected setup. And if this is the owner’s car, you know it was done right and to show-grade quality. So yes, the classic setup is surrounded by a modern Mopar SRT motor. It growls to life from the Dynomax dual exhaust. And if you really want to make them fear you, just flip the switch on the dash for the electric cutout, and then the thunder really rolls. You have complete control over this fuel-injected Hemi and its raucous soundtrack thanks to a Tremec TKO600 six-speed manual transmission. This feeds a strong Strange rear end with 4.56 gears for powerful take-offs. Keeping this beastly Dart under control is easy thanks to the right component like a thick front sway bar, super stock leaf springs in the rear, and Baer vented four-wheel disc brakes.
