Here is a video that features a beautiful 1965 Dodge Dart A/FX gasser as it takes on an Impala in a race to the death. Of note are the huge stacks that dominate the Dart’s bonnet.
This monster muscle car has a huge 572 cc Hemi engine, 14-inch stacks, and it moves super-fast down the straight run. This audacious car speeds to a victory in just 10.71 seconds, hitting a top speed of 124.37 in a mere quarter mile.
As we can see from the video, the engine of the ‘65 Dodge Dart is immaculately kept, as is its interior. The custom fire engine red metallic paint and black suspension make this speed demon look as sleek as it is tough. Despite a slow start from the Dart in the race, it should come as no surprise when it wins.
In the mid-1960’s, Dodge wanted to have a car that would keep Americans out of the tiny German and French cars that were starting to get a toehold in the U.S. The Dart was the car that stopped the European take-over in one swift move, thanks to its power and style.
Still, in 1965, very few of these classic Dodge Darts were ever built, according to Hemmings. Out of all the Dodge Darts built in 1965, only a third of them were powered by a V-8 engine, while the rest had the solid six.
