'69 Dart 440The 1969 Dart 440 was a performance-minded model for the fourth generation of Chrysler’s Dodge Dart. Recently revived by Dodge, the Dart originally ran from 1960 to 1976 and provided consumers with a full-size, mid-size, and a compact car during its lifetime. The Dart evolved over the years as demand for smaller and smaller cars increased in the American marketplace.

As a compact, the success of the Dart could not be rivaled by competitors. But Dodge made special versions of the car as well. The 1969 Dart 440 represented the brand’s best performance in a cool muscle car. As part of the fourth, and final, generation, the 1969 Dart 440 GTS was introduced as a performance-oriented model that buyers loved.
