Good day everyone!
I’m Rob, pre-owned among lots of other Mopars a Challenger. Still sad that it had to go.
But a couple of cars later a yellow Dart brightens my life! Let’s wait and see how the project goes.

I’m from the Netherlands, Europe. I can do a RR beep-beep in four different colours, which my wife does not appreciate. my Dart:
Let’s hope it sticks with me!

I have a 360 ready to drop in. And a 727 to be rebuilt.
I’ve put the 360 in my avatar, here’s a big pic: this one was taken when I thought the coolling system was ready. It wasn’t!!

Time flies! Having some issues in the family (both my own and my wife's parents growing into Alzheimer's desease) I finally got some time again for my patient yellow buddy!
I have the interior done, worked out pretty nice! All parts came with the car, so it was a no-brainer. 4 cans of black paint and done!

The 360 and 727 dropped in yesterday. I was very happy to find a 392 oil pan, no clearance issues.
Next couple of weeks will be spent on my son's new garage floor, it gives me time to figure out wheather to go for A body headers or manifolds. Theres no exhaust yet, so I can go both ways. Hope to find headers, my 360 is pretty strong and revs to 5700 rpm on the B300 headers.. Would be a shame to smother the flow with the manifolds.
Well, that's it for now. Cheers!

A very nice looking '73 Dart.
The 360 sounds like it will be a lot of fun!
I would suggest headers if you are starting out fresh.
Do yourself a favor, and get good ones like TTI or Doug's.
You are looking at a lot of money for shipping, so you may as well make the best of it...

I've had some TTI's in the past, not really a drop-in fit. I didn't know Doug's. Will look into that! It's half the price and I will propably have to hammer it in anyway.

I run Doug's in my duster
Pretty close to a perfect fit...but still not cheap

Then again "goedkoop is duur koop"
Well: Europe is a big country. A guy some 200 miles away wrote that he had some Doug's headers for me. We agreed on it and I received them. Nice pieces, ceramic coated. I don't know if they will fit.... They are A body, but not the 73 A body. Later this day we will try to fit them in. Haha, I did some "duurkoop": let's wait and see if they are good!
