My 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger

Post by Drache on Thu Jan 22, 2015 9:36 am

Figured I better start a good example and post about my car as well. It's a 1970 Dodge Dart Swinger. 440 Magnum under the hood. Not a lot of Horsepower but enough for me on the street at 430hp and 500ft-lbs of torque. 727 Automatic with a 2800 stall converter and a Moser race built 8-3/4 with a 3.91 Suregrip.

I think the model is called 336 or something like that? Can't remember exactly but I'll look it up when I get back home.

What do you do now? I see there is not a lot of choices in your area. How is the construction industry there?

Great looking Swinger 'ya got Kyle ! IMO, Mopar knocked it outa the park with that front end back beginning in '70 !
You should be proud, FINE job !

I love those BB A Body's, very capable combination.
(But I'm biased because I raced one for many years myself in Div 6.)
