    Retired last month as a tool and die maker to spend more time with my 70 Dart 340 Swinger. Numbers matching, 4 speed, bucket seats. Car was born in Ontario and is mostly stock with a few upgrades. I’m from Ridgefield Wa.

      I have a bit more info, but it’s far from detailed.
      Car was built at the Windsor Ontario plant, I have some repair records from Ferguson’s auto repair in London Ontario May of 07 thru April 08. From there it somehow found it’s way to Burleson Texas. Then it was purchased by a collector (dealer) in Oregon in August 2020. I bought it from him. It is a numbers matching car, with a mistery engine build, sure grip & 3:55 (build sheet) rear gearing. I have upgraded the rear suspension, shocks, water pump, harmonic balancer and am working on the heater core/box. Next will be front suspension and steering. It’s an older restoration but sure turns a lot of heads. I was originally looking for a Duster, but when I saw this car I didn’t hesitate and am glad I didn’t.
