With an experienced team and a lot of data.
Not one to mess with a good thing, Dodge left the Dart alone for 1969, with only minor front and rear changes. But Dodge did introduce a new model called the Swinger, which was an economy version of the GTS, similar to how the Super Bee was to the Coronet.
Listing for $2,400, the Swinger two-door hardtop could be equipped with any engine from the base 115 bhp 170 cid six to the 180 bhp 273 cid V-8, 340 cid V-8 and even the 330 bhp 383 cid Magnum V-8. It was fitted with Rallye suspension, stiffer shocks, GTS power bulge hood, and dual exhaust.
What had been the mid-range 270 was now the Dodge Dart Custom. It could be fitted with the 115 bhp or 145 bhp slant six engines, while V-8s included the 275 bhp 340 or the 335 bhp 383 Magnum. Prices started at $2,550.
The Dodge Dart GT was the next level up and cost from $2,672 as a two-door hardtop and $2,856 for a convertible. The GT could be had with any of the four engines Meanwhile the GTS hardtops and convertibles were the top line Darts. All were fitted with V-8s and 6,700 were sold, divided between both models.
Options included air conditioning, automatic transmission, power steering, power steering, console for GT and GTS, tinted glass, AM radio, AM/FM radio, 8-track, and woodgrain sport steering wheel.
