101962-1973 Dodge Dart
The Dodge Dart is a great example of American muscle on a slightly smaller scale. The Dart's drivetrain and appearance changed quite a bit over several generations, but it came well-equipped with a wide variety of engines and transmissions, including the 225 cu. in "Slant Six" and the "high performance"
273 cu. in V8.
The Dart is a popular choice for people seeking a restoration project; they're easy to work on, easy to come by, and easy on the eyes. Because of this, it's easy to find a newly-restored Dart for well under $15,000. Several restoration-ready Darts for well under $10,000 can be found on sites like Hemmings Motor News—a fantastic deal for a beautiful muscle car.
