      Great looking car my friend!
      69 340 Swingers are one of the best balanced Musclecars Mopar ever made.
      There are only 2 Mopars on my must have list, this is one of them. The other is a 67 R/T convertible.
      Congratulations!

        Love it! Wish I had my old Swinger back. Kicked some 396 asses in it.

          Best year!
          Great color combo!

          good for you, Wayne. They are fun when you get one that can be played with while keeping them driveable

            The closest street race I was ever in was against a 69 340 automatic Dart Swinger. It was against my 67 383 4-speed Satellite. I managed to edge him out on the big end by a little over half a car.
            My favorite of the 67-69 Darts is the 68's.

            And then there was this other A body, now gone. RockyandAndyStuff 095.JPG
            383 4-speed.

                        Nothing like a big block, but they become just tire shredders in a A body if you don't get the suspension right.

                          Very nice! I’m a fan of 68-69 Darts myself. That’ll be a fun car!

                            Turn that 340 into a 416. You will be surprised at the power it will make. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face - especially in front of a 4-speed. It will walk all over your stock B's.....

                                    Thought this was going to be about defecting away! Man, love the color but a white gut isn't my favorite. I'm usually too dirty to just hop in for a blast lol. Had two Darts in the 70's...a 67 /6 car with 3.91's and 3 on the tree with a straight pipe and some good tune up mods. It surprised more than a few stock small block Chevies! Bought a 69 for my girlfriend with a teen, AC, auto, PS. She loved it and it would do a good one wheel peel. Odd that they both were red and now I have two red pickups.....and I don't like red :(

                                      Some time someday
                                      I want to do a 68-69 Dart GTS 383 4 speed
                                      (pref. later install a 5 speed)
                                      mini-tubbed/resto-mod nice wheels & tires, paint, interior, peppy engine etc.
                                      not to wild, just enough to peak my interests still

                                      I always thought they were a cool looking sort of mini RR/GTX-esk

                                      just no room, right now
