WARSAW, N.Y. - It always kind of surprised me that there wasn’t a Dodge version of the Plymouth Barracuda sooner than the 1970 Challenger. This 1967 Dodge Dart GT was about as close as they came that year. Yeah, there was the Charger, but its larger size (built on the mid-size Coronet platform) made it more of a competitor to the AMC Marlin than the pony cars from Ford and General Motors. As you can see from the front fender badge (inset), this one has a 273cid V8 under the hood. Dodge offered it in two versions, of 180 and 235 horsepower — which for 1967 was the largest Dart engine available. Things would change a year later when the Dart GTS debuted, with its choices of a 340 or a 383.
