Unlike the same owner’s ’53 Ford, there’s no mystery as to what’s under the hood of this Dart. But it’s an impressive sight, nevertheless.
Without further ado, let’s see it. Six Mikuni carbs, feeding a 225 inch (3.7 L) slant six, that’s also got a high performance cam and a bit of head work.
And of course some tube headers; in this case it appears they aren’t home-made.
This one is also backed by a Torqueflite. Owner Robert uses this mostly for fun (racing), but it’s quite amenable to street driving too.
This was a couple of years ago, so I’ve forgotten what it pulls in the quarter mile, but I’m sure it scoots right along. It certainly made nice sounds when he pulled out front for me. Few things can beat the bark of a hot big six.
6 Pac To Go, quickly.
