    I have learned very little about the dart chargers. What exactly make a charger? I'm mixed up on the car I own...this is a hardtop gt 4-speed car, on the dash pad it has a commando v-8 emblem. Also on the rear valence it had the square notch. That makes me think it is a charger? But I believe the production was in St. Louis mo and I heard that chargers were made in Cali.

    From the Dart Wiki:

    In 1965, the 2-barrel 273 remained available, but a new performance version of the 273 engine was released with a 4-barrel carburetor, 10.5:1 compression, a more aggressive camshaft with solid tappets, and other upgrades which increased output to 235 bhp (175 kW). At the same time, the Dodge Dart Charger was offered. The Dart Chargers were yellow Dart GT hardtops with black interiors, Commando 273 engine, premium mechanical and trim specifications, and special "Charger" badging. They were the first Dodge models to bear the "Charger" name. The following year the larger B-body Dodge Charger was introduced, and the "Charger" name was thenceforth associated with Dart models only in the "Charger 225" marketing name for the optional larger 6-cylinder engine.

    One of the members knows a lot about them (65DartCharger, I think, is his handle)

    I used to know where a gold dart charger 273/4 speed car was. I think its long gone now though.
