Summit Racing now offers Dream Dart Parts Combos that allow Mopar enthusiasts to build their own version of Steve Connor's Hemi-powered 1967 Dodge Dart that was built by Finish Line Speed Shop. Read all about the build at StreetLegalTV.com.
The front suspension was upgraded with a QA1 Level 2 Handling Package. Out back are Hotchkis rear leaf springs and Mopar Performance subframe connectors. Hotchkis sway bars were added to both ends of the car, and Energy Suspension provided bump stops plus torsion bar and tie rod end boots.
The Dart gets its go-power from a 5.7L Hemi and five-speed automatic from a 2006 Charger R/T. Finish Line upgraded the engine with parts to improve reliability—a Milodon oiling system, MSD 6-Hemi ignition controller, and an Airaid throttle body spacer.
Fuel and Exhaust Combo
The fuel system is all Tanks, Inc. stuff—fuel tank, electric pump, and pressure regulator. Finish Line fabricated a dual exhaust system from a Magnaflow Hot Rod Exhaust Kit, a pair of Magnaflow XL mufflers, and a pair of shiny Magnaflow tips.
A Dart’s factory steering is dodgy at best, and downright terrifying in the manual version that Steve’s car came with. Finish Line fixed that in short order with a Borgeson power steering box, and ididit steering column, and hardware from Allstar Performance and Dorman.
The only body panel replaced on the Dart was the hood, which was swapped for an Auto Metal Direct GTS-style hood. Auto Metal Direct also supplied new bumpers, bolts, and brackets. OER was tapped for new door handles, door latch assemblies, and side view mirrors.
Finish Line redid the interior upholstery to OEM specs. The shop turned to OER for new carpet, armrest bases and pads, door lock knobs, and a dome light lens. A set of Dakota Digital VHX gauges adds some class to the factory dash.
Climate Control Combo
There really isn’t any reason not to run A/C in a modern street machine, especially when Vintage Air makes it so darn easy. Finish Line fit the Dart with a Vintage Air GEN IV Magnum climate control kit and all of the hardware needed to complete the installation.
Wheels and Brakes Combo
Finish Line chose a set of Vision Wheel Legend 5 Series chrome wheels to set off the Dart’s black paint job. Behind those wheels are four-wheel disc brakes from a Right Stuff Detailing Disc Brake Conversion Kit.
This combo includes POR-15 products used to clean and prettify the chassis and engine; Joe Gibbs Driven motor and gear oils; and an XGM battery.
