No, have nothing there
I bet it was a pilot production car. Those were never meant to get away from the factory. Incomplete vins, used for testing, or for new car advert pix, and brochures. A few have made it into the hands of private owners. They are pre production cars and are supposed to get destroyed after use. So when one "gets away" it's a pretty rare sight to see, and valuable. I almost purchased a 1988 dodge Daytona Shelby Z it was a pilot production car. Had full vin. One data plate had all the codes, second data plate only said 1988 C1 PILOT on it. Vin Sequence numbers were 000001. This car could also been a Switzerland made car possibly. They made A bodies there too. I heard they had impossibly short vins. This might account for the different rivets used that aren't "rosette" rivets. Maybe somebody else on here can chime in with more information on the Switzerland built cars, and pilot production cars.
Some fresh photo, progressing with the car headliner installed, waiting for the dashboard restoration to install the windshield.
Hi! here comes the stainless steel exhaust. cost for all is 1500$. Video will follow sound is nice!
Great build love the white. Keep up the good work. Dustin
Very nice work buddy! Look forward to the progress.
Beautiful job. Kudos to your exhaust system fabricator.
Wheres the exhaust pipe hangers? They look nice and hidden in the pix. Usually theres one behind each muffler going up. On the LH side it attaches to the bracket that holds the brake line. On the RH side theres a bracket bolted in. Like this in pic below. Clip nuts go in the 2 brackets, rubber exhaust strap bolts to them going to the muffler. The bracket, and threaded mount plate I made patterned off originals that were too rusty to use.
Great looking Dart, you have done an excellent job of the restoration.
Nice work buddy! Looking good!
11 years passed, still lot's to do (wheels on the way), to kill vibration (still there), carb to tune (too reach), and some other small stuff....
Looks great. I love the added in analog clock too.
IMHO - Suggest that you paint the front of your radiator support satin black, so that you can't see body color through the grill. They came that way from the factory and it really makes the grille stand out, and the front look more finished
You absolutely right! will do it later.
Have a several questions! Can you please direct me to the right threads to understand: 1. what's the headlights option do I have? something to get better light in the night? 2. is there any plug and play solution for the additional controls/gauges? (like more precise coolant temp, oil temp\pressure, etc) thanks!
I’d recommend a member on here’s headlight upgrade harness and relays with some GE nighthawk bulbs. Member crackedback. Your dart looks great looks like it’s got a 67 hood on it. Dustin [FOR SALE] - Plug and play - Headlight Relay Kits
thanks! still I'm not so sure about the year, looks like it's 1967. VIN is too short to decode it, the speedometer is in km and not in miles...
Lookin good! Lots of hard work there.
Nice job! What other American muscle cars are there in Russia?
That’s cool I just noticed the Speedo. I only notice the hood as 67. The rest looks more like 1968, very sweet dart.
Lovely car! Have you checked for any build sheets in the seats? May shine some light on the vin. Shot in the dark though
Actually more than you can imagine but the price is quite high...
