1966 Dodge Dart GT V8 Convertible with Power Top
Here we have a 1966 Dodge Dart GT Convertible which looks good and runs well. Originally a special-order blue car from the factory, it is now a sharp red on bright white interior with power white convertible top. The car has been owned by Mopar enthusiasts for two years who have Grandma’s ’64 Valiant – original owner, she was – in the garage for safekeeping until they restore it. While this car is partially restored to result in its fine appearance at 57 years old, it retains most original accents to peg it as a ’66 Dodge, with the GT package: rallye wheels (5) with bright beauty rings and centre accents; whitewalls; GT badges; aluminum grille; and chrome bumpers.

The red paint reflects a fine gloss, the finish has a bright appearance in the sunlight. There are a few flaws in the paint, and these are shown in the gallery but it is quite good overall. Glass is very good and clear – as is the vinyl folding rear window in the convertible top, no distortion or fade, perfectly transparent. The top folds down easily with the power switch on the dashboard, same for the “up” function, both are illustrated in the videos. Rallye wheels are wrapped in 205/70R14 with matching whitewall radials at all four corners installed by a former owner, there is both a full-sized spare matching the installed wheels, and a space-saver spare in the trunk – which opens freely, is covered by a period-correct vinyl sheet and contains a jack. Chrome hood-side appointments, windshield wipers and quarter-panel GT badges complement the bright work on the grille and bumpers. Dual exhaust tips are also chrome-finished and emit a powerful sound when the engine is running. There is one exterior mirror, on the driver’s side and the owner has ingeniously fitted a concave mirror to the inside of the passenger vent windows, making this feature of yesteryear even more functional when open. Mini fins and chrome-wrapped taillights ensure presence even in departure.
On the interior, the bright white seats are of replacement vinyl upholstery and replacement black carpet are the beginning of a tidy package. Patina shows on the original chromed console to yield an original look. The car was built without seat belts, though 4 lap belts have since been installed – on the two front buckets and two on the rear bench. Dash also retains an original look, though the “Valiant” steering wheel hub cover is borrowed from the car’s Plymouth cousin. As optioned from the factory, the AM Radio remains functional when the manual antenna is raised – functioning radio is included in the videos, all sound through the one centre-mount speaker. Interior door panels are white with black trim – they house chrome for door handles, locks, crank windows, ashtrays and trim; as well, they are home to Dart GT badging and the remote mirror control on the driver’s side. The sweeping speedometer maxes out at 120 MPH and the incorporated odometer reads 45000, though true mileage is unknown (TMU). There are accessory gauges for fuel and temperature to replace those factory gauges not functioning. There is a cover for the power top switch that is loose but intact. A blue interior light is visible in some photos – this is merely an accessory light and has no function beyond that, easily removed if the new owner prefers.
