1969 Dart Swinger

Post by Churchy on Sat Mar 14, 2015 6:14 pm

This is the current project and has been for far too long, but that's life I suppose.  Started this adventure back in Dec of 05. It was completely gutted with no interior or glass to speak of.  It was, however, a numbers matching car which made it worthwhile.  Started it's life as a Y2 yellow 340 swinger 4 speed car from Alberta the best I can tell.  The last active plates were from 1984 from Alberta.  Currently the numbers matching block has been set aside for a .30 over 360 good for around 400 hp and 450 tq.  I really don't have too much more to go, just suffered from a lack of interest and life getting in the way.  Here are some picks of the build so far.

More Pics






Need to get a few more pics (with a better camera) as I have made some more progress lately. Dealing with lining up the rear quarter windows which has been the bane of my existence!!

Looking good. Lots of work, but worth it in the end.

Is that "dynamat" or? I have to replace my carpet so while it out do you recommend this?

Yep it's a knock off version. Got it from a local stereo shop. He was actually working on a 73 dart and found it helped considerably for sound. Also did the cardboard behind the rear seat. Makes it a little more comfortable in there.

im going to be starting the build of my 69 340 swinger in a month or so, funny im in alberta nad my car has the plates on it from california form 1984 as well, maybe it was a good year to park them. i see you are re wiring the car, what harness are you using? are you doing the whole car with one harness are are there a couple differnt ones your using?

Used the Painless wiring kit for the whole car. Have it almost all done now. Just the cooling fans and distributor left. The kit is very easy to install. Well marked and same colours as OEM.
