Survivor Status Achieved: 1975 Dodge Dart Swinger

The 4th generation Dodge Dart hit the market for the 1967 model year and while most of its competitors went through multiple platform changes, the Dart survived with mostly cosmetic changes to address the ever changing landscape of “safety” features in the early 70s…plus the changes due to the emissions and fuel crisis, crisises, crisesesse…that’s still not right…but you get the picture. Today’s example is from 1975, the penultimate year of Dart production and is a 2-door Swinger model with a slant-6, an “automaniac” transmission and a basic asking price. Find this 1975 Dodge Dart Swinger offered for $5000 in Shawsville, VA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
