1967 Dodge Dart Convertible
Most well-known as a compact car, the Dart actually began as a full-sized car for the Dodge brand in 1960. By 1962, it shrank to mid-sized, and was fully part of the compact niche by 1963. The 1967 Dodge Dart convertible kicked off the fourth generation of this popular model. The Dart went through a lot of changes in its early years and moved through generations one through three pretty quickly. As well as a reduction in size over those years, it slowly evolved from an affordable, safe family car to a genuine muscle car.
The 1967 Dodge Dart convertible was not the only entry in the fourth generation. Buyers could also get a four-door sedan, or a two-door hardtop, coupe, or sedan. The range of engine options was also seemingly endless. From the 2.8-liter slant-6 that came standard at the bottom of the line up to the 7.0-liter Hemi V8 and 7.2-liter V8 at the other end of the spectrum, consumers had a choice of eleven different engines throughout the fourth generation.
Upgraded engines, more power, and added speed were not the only changes for the 1967 Dodge Dart convertible and the brand’s other body types. Dodge restyled the cars to make them bigger, although still technically compact. They also added more curves to the exterior, a semi-fastback rear end, sporty bucket seats, a wider front end and grille, and new gadgets and fresh upholstery for the interior.
As the fourth generation continued on, the Dart got sportier and faster, but the 1967 Dodge Dart convertible was a worthy vehicle. With the GT or GTS trim levels, buyers could get a small, fast, and powerful car with improved styling and added excitement when compared to its predecessors. These models are collectibles today and treasured classics of many car enthusiasts.
