    500ADA8B-31CA-4349-AA1B-6324C5A0E8C9.jpeg Here is my 72 Dart Swinger. 72k actual miles, 318, 904, original Bench seat interior, AC, PS, manual brakes This was a rust free car and was wearing original paint when I purchased it in 2013. I painted it, took out the suspension and it sat for 6 years. Covid freed up my time to work on it again. It has new front end including boxed lower CAs, Firm feel tubular Upper CAs, 11.5 Dr Diff front disks, 1” firm feel Torsion Bars, 8.75 rear, 3.55 SG, right stuff rear disks, new HD Leafs, Dr. Diff relocation brackets, Bilsteins all the way around. 245/45/17s on all corners. All I lack is driveshaft, exhaust and alignment! I can not wait to drive it!!!

        I got my driveshaft cut, alignment and exhaust put on. I could not be happier with how the car turned out. Handles, drives, and rides like a brand new car. Surprisingly, the 318 2bbl with the 3.55s is pretty snappy. Not a muscle car, but not a dog either. Got to go to our local cruise in this past Saturday night......

          Had one virtually identical, except for B1 and white top. Sold it to my brother.
