J-GL's 1976 Dart Sport

Post by JGL on Mon Jan 26, 2015 7:23 am

J-GL’s 1976 Dodge Dart Sport

Original color MU3 “caramel tan metallic” + 3 coats clear coat
White: sides & over the roof stripe
White 74 Dart Sport tail stripe
1979 360 cu in V8 from Ramcharger
Bored 30 over (365.32 cu in)
9.0 to 1 compression
Automatic 904 transmission
1.88 intake 1.60 exhaust valves
1.6 rockers instead of stock 1.5's
RPM Air Gap intake manifold
650 cfm Edelbrock carburetor
Shortie headers with 2 ½” exhaust
Alluminum valve covers
4 American Racing Ventura wheels (2-15x7, 2-15X8)
8 ¼ rear end / 2.76 gears  soon to be 3.55 gears
Frame connectors installed in 2014
This combo gives approx. 325 to 365 HP
My guess about 350
Not overpowered but enough to have fun with
This vehicle had a slant 6
I am the original owner

That was the original colour I liked it then and I still do. Picture was taken in 2013.

Someday when I work up the courage to try and post more. Some of us older guys aren't too keen on computers.

Very nice, changing out those gears will be like adding 50 hp, and way more fun.

Yeah, more power but less gas mileage, ah well that is the price we pay for fun.

It just seen 1 year of salt(which was the first year) helps greatly. The floor was still holy though.
