            Only one.

            Born as a high option 1973 lemon twist 318 auto black and white buckets/console PS AC rallye wheel car.

            Bought it from my friend who installed a rebuilt 360, painted it plum crazy changed the interior to black and installed a B&M shifter and a nice set of rear window louvers.

            I put in a 67 B body 8 3/4 with 3.23 SG, installed a Demon scoop, and a MP deck spoiler, and upgraded the rear wheels to 15x6.5.

            I have come close on a few others.

                First one, 440-70-dart, 4 - speed. wife called it the "Mutt" because I had a very clean :eek: '72 Chevelle at the time. Never finished due to bad shoulder.

                383 - 4 speed '73 bad frame rail under battery tray I didn't see it when I bought it .. I paid for that mistake :(

                340 - 4 speed '70 original 62,000 miles I was the 3rd owner, guy I bought it from had it for 27 years.

                408 - 4 speed '70 very fast ..sold a couple months ago when I bought the '68 Charger I have now :), and will have until the end. :(

                  Well...only 2 for me as I have primarily had B and E bodies... Green 70 I sold around 2009 or 2010, the blue 75 I have owned twice but, actually finished it this time. I have had around 100 cars and only 2 A bodies...seems odd now that I think about it...

                            1965 Barracuda V8 --wrecked after it was sold, got the letter in boot camp..some guys got 'Dear John' letters, I got the death certificate of my high school Barracuda...
                            1965 Barracuda "S" --currently on blocks in the garage, saw it for sale on the corner and bought it running condition unknown 20 minutes later.

                            I'd like to get a 67 Dart one day.
                            Mom had one like your white Duster with the rusted top, same hubcaps but it was red and a 3sp manual.

                                In 1998-2000, I made a couple of home movies with some car stunts. I had a few junk cars donated to the cause to be used as stunt cars. The hero car was a '73 Duster. It was a 318 car with a bench and column shift. I needed a stunt car and found a wrecked 74 Dart Sport 360 that had a bucket seat and console setup, so...

                                      It is clear to me that you don't like 1968 A Body since you have not owned even one. LOL

                                        I’m sorry I didn’t notice who you were quoting. But I’ll never forget one 68 a-body I had, a factory ss dart. I had it for about 12 years. It was in unmodified form when I got it. It didn’t leave that way. Used to drive it on the street and race it. It overall was the least fun car I had as I was always worried when someone would lean on the doors. But it was undeniable the most memorable.

                                            I had 1968 fenders on a 73 Dart Sport!
                                            1974 was my most common year model to own. I'm not really a fan of the 1st generation A body cars. I've only had 1 69 Dart.

                                              68 Barracuda convertible which I still have
                                              71 Dart only kept long enough to swap wheels off of it

                                              68 Formula S Notch which I used cut up for parts on the convertible. It had been a drag car since 70 and whas very butchered up but had a perfect pair of front fenders that were puled from it in 71 and stored.
