dude, that thing is an aggbox! (thats a good thing)

needs a new motor though. 6 cylinders is not enough for a dart.

lots of potential but going to take some big bucks if you want it top-notch. Looks pretty sweet now though

well im going to keep the slant six because its going to be my everyday driver and i dont want to use to much gas. As for now im keeping the interior because its in such great condition untill i deside to make it black. then im going to change the suspetion all the way around. The front really needs it so i figured that i would do the back while im at it. Then after that ill clean up the engine replace all the rubber. Next im going to fix the body and give it a fresh paint job which i haven't desided the color yet(give me some ideas). Then after that im going get a set of rims and new tires and ill be good to go. Theres really not rust except the passanger side rear quater pannel behind the wheel just a little section that has to be replaced. Other then that the only real problem with the body is the dents. The engine runs great. When my dad drove it home He said that it felt better then his car(except for the front suspention).

Thanks for looking

It better run great... its got fewer miles on it than my 1999 Dodge. There's nothing wrong with a slant 6. A few well-placed upgrades and some TLC and you can get some decent performance and a lot more miles out of her.

As for the color suggestion, I would go with a new white vinyl top and a nice medium blue for the body. You'd have to redo the interior to match though... same white for most of it, with matching blue accent panels and inlay.

Oooh, I see you got it in today! As for the engine, keep the sixes in there until you can afford to buy a new one, and afford to buy some more gas, as a Six is, in theory, going to be more efficient than an Eight.

Oh yeah, I forgot to ask last I spoke with you, how much did you pick it up for? And how is your Dad letting you get both these cars, you must have gotten an insane deal.

TigerDave - I plan on removeing the vynal top i like the look of it better with out it. I was thinking of blue though.
As of other colors i was thinking of were a like a deep metallic red or like a hemi orange.

Leed- I got it for 1200, This car is all mine. The 1955 chevy is half my sisters, so if i ever sell it she gets half.
