Fastest American Muscle Cars of The 60s and 70s
24. 1969 Dodge Dart 440
With the recent resurgence of the Dodge Dart, complete with funny commercials, it’s hard to see the original in there. For that, you have to go back to 1969 and take a look at the two door sedan. That is a muscle car. In fact, its is one of the fastest American muscle cars ever to grace the roadways of our great nation. There are several reasons for this. For starters, the 440 V8 yielded maximum horsepower and performance. In addition, the six-cylinder model was outfitted with a carburetor anti-ice system taken from the Canadian market. This meant you could scream down the highway in summer or winter, it mattered not. The Dart was quite popular for its day, and still holds a lot of gravity with classic car enthusiasts. Resurrected from an old Italian Fiat compact car, it’s amazing to see what Dodge was able to accomplish with their reincarnation through the late 60s. What they did firmly cemented the Dart as an important piece of Americana as well as one of the most epic muscle cars ever created.
