I thought they were only 4spd parts.

how about the parts train guys ?

http://www.partstrain.com/ShopByDepartment/Grille/DODGE/DART

I see they are currently out of stock but you might call and ask when they will be back in stock ?

Never bought from these guys, but might check out;

(scroll down after page loads)

these guys seem to have a lot of parts:

this guy has some years of Dart grilles, but people seemed to have used this business with mixed feelings ...

Wait a minute...you just bought that with a rotisserie restoration! Did something happen, or is something showing up that you over looked before you bought it. Just wondering.

Small pin size dent in rear trunk panel

small scratch on right side of grill bottom plate under left headlight

(I'm a perfectionist)

Also need rocker panel chrome pieces for under doors (not put on in resto)

Sweet ride. I had a 68 GTS 340 Convertible for a while, loved that car....

Yep, you're looking for the two most impossible and priciest pieces to find. As far as I know, no one has made repro GTS specific parts, except for small stuff like emblems and infamous 68 nose cone. There was one guy I remember could actually repair and refinish the original parts; it's been so long that the name escapes me, but if you hit some of the better mopar boards, they'll know hiw name. However, your best bet is to enjoy what you've got, put your name out there, make lots of connections, and eventually one will turn up.

Thanks

I'm scouring those sights as we speak. 68 GTS was the first GTS I rode in. Friend had a 340. It was nice. It turned me onto the Darts.

Pics are buried in a box or I'd share. Original color was same TT1 as yours, but someone repainted it white. Love those M codes though as I also had a 67 Barracuda 383, so I'm partial to big block A-bodies. Now that was a fast car -- 3.91 suregrip with a 4-speed, thank goodness for the (rare) optional headrests.

All I can say is be patient and have cash on hand. I've found sometimes you have to go as far as buying rare parts when you find them even if you don't need them, then trade them later for the parts you really want. You won't lose money on them and they make great trade bait.

THanks for the tip

I'm new at the restoration parts game, and that's a good idea.

My Dart has the 4.10 Dana rear with 4 spd. THe little headrests are hardly a match for the 1st to 2nd shift :D

That's right, M codes get the Dana, nice. If you really want a challenge, look for the 1969 'recall' wheels, they look cool....

Thanks for your help guys

I got the collectors guide-great source

Got the chrome exhaust tips and hangers from Year One

Found a set of repro rocker mouldings from Metro Parts with mounting clips and hardware.

Found the redline tires from Diamond back and Coker (not sure which I will get yet.)

Just wish it was April and not October, as I am in New York and there isn't much play time left this year!

440 'Cuda/Dart GTS

Chas B,
I was racing hot and heavy in 1969 when these were new. I was in Orange County California finishing my Marine enlistment. We raced at OCIR, Lions, Irwindale, and Pomona. I drove Jim Carroll's "Flying Dutchman" C/SA 440 Dart and Saddleback Dodge's SS/GA 440 Dart, in addition to my E/S Coronet R/T that set several track records. I'm not trying to sound like a know it all, but, I was there when guys first started showing up at the track with these cars. The "A" body cars (Darts and early 'Cudas) did not come with Dana rear ends. Since they were all automatic, they all came with 8 3/4 differentials. Only the stick shift Hemi and 440 "B" body and "E" body cars came with a Dana, except the 1969 440-6 pack Super Bees and Roadrunners. They got a Dana regardless of the transmission.
I'm not trying to start a fight about your sharp GTS and it may well have a 4.10 gear, but it came from the factory with an 8 3/4 sure grip and the wheels still had the small 4" bolt circle. No Dana ever came with the 4" bolt pattern wheels. Attached is my '69 383 4spd 'Cuda Notchback when it was stock and after I went racing with it in D/S. Also, my '69 Coronet R/T with added 6 pack hood.
All the best,

Dana didn't come from factory in these cars.
