A Dart from the desert!
We found this gem hiding on Craigslist in Ramona, Ariz., and it was love at first click. How can you go wrong with a 55-year-old convertible, in all its 225 Slant Six greatness, for under 5 grand? Sorry buddy, you can't. This a no-brainer, and if we'd didn't live cowering in fear of our wife, we'd be on our way to pick this fabulous piece of of open-air awesomeness right now. The seller says he's at $4,600 firm and sounds like he means it, so we're not even going to haggle with him.
According to the owner, the "Dart needs work" ... well, yeah. But it has a long list of new parts (radiator, distributor, cap, rotor, fuel pump, water pump, all new hoses, spark plug wires, spark plugs, gas tank, new gas line back to front, reman. carburetor, fuel filter, new battery, new locks all around, used but good pair of taillights, complete new brakes including master cylinder (but not installed)).
It would take some love and some work, and we'd probably have to pluck a few cactus needles out of the sidewalls, but it would be worth it!
