1968 Dodge Dart GT
This Dart was purchased new on November 7, 1968 by Wayne and Sandra Bumgardner.
In early 1970, we sold the Dart to a resident in our home town who owned the car for the next 25 years. Never being out of site or out of mind, we often saw “Our Little Dart” around town (always longing to have it back one day). When we would see the Dart parked in a parking lot, we sometimes took the time to go by and look it over for old time sake.
In July 1995, we were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to purchase the Dart back, which we did, this making us the first and third owners, we as the original owners and now the owners of the Dart again.
The second restoration was completed in the fall of 2004 by Ronnie Hodge Restorations. It was painted the original color of Turbine Bronze. The Dart still has the original 273 V8 engine. The car has never been damaged and the original spare is still in the trunk.
We are very pleased to have our Dart Home Again II.
