1972 Dodge Dart Swinger

Jason W. brought us this 20,000 original mile 1972 Dart Swinger for an EXTREME Makeover, Smothers style........It was originally a slant 6, auto on the column car. Jason had the car repainted in it's original blue, added the scoops, and tail stripe.


Jason drove the car in the shop and we knocked the 6 banger in the head. Now it's got a 10.5 to 1 416" 340 with Edelbrock heads ported by Dwayne Porter and small,very streetable, solid roller cam with .589 lift and 260 degrees of duration @ .050 on the intake and .598 lift and 268 degrees of duration @ .050 on the exhaust. It's got a Victor intake with a 750 Holley HP, TTI step headers, and a Monte Smith nitrous system that's adjustable high enough to blow the crankshaft right out of the bottom end if Jason is so inclined..........


The way the car sits, on M/T Street Radials, the car's been 11.15 @ 121MPH on just the motor, without the catchup in the bottle.......It's also got a 3,800RPM nitrous converter and a low gear set 904 with 3.91's in the 8 3/4. We also pimped out the suspension with heim joint strut rods and adjustable QA1 shocks on all four corners.


The car is still shifted by the factory column shifter, although it is reverse pattern now. The interior is ALL 100% original, including the seats, floor mats, headliner, dash, dash pad, door panels, and interior door paint.........
