Wondering what a project factory real deal untubbed 1968 Hemi Dodge Dart is worth? Automatic car with fender tag. Very rare car with complete 426 Hemi Crossram engine.

More info is needed such as what parts are included and what modifications have been done. What year is the Hemi and what condition are the parts in? There are a LOT of unique parts that are hard to find, DAMHIK as I am in the process of building an original car and have been gathering parts for 7 years now. Most of these cars are known, and there is a member who has a registry and info on them, is it a car that is unknown at this time and does it have a solid race history? shruggy My car has very little history so it is at the bottom of the price list, where as a Sox and Martin, Dick Landy, and Billy Stepp cars are at the top of the heep. work

I agree with cudanut, not many uncut examples at any price. That will drive the price up for sure, even if it ends up missing some rare parts. If it's the original numbers matching 68 Hemi I'd add to that number, VERY few of those out there. Be wary of a possible re-body, there's a few of those out there.

I don't know that the market supports that. Finished cars tied to a little history are hitting 140-170. As an auto car, without significant history, I think you're looking at 40-60. Could be looking at 60-100k in restoration depending on what you're missing and needs to be replaced.

50K-100K. It's all about condition and what parts are there. How much glass is left? Any paperwork? A car with paperwork, most of the parts and glass is worth double what a roller would be worth. Maybe somebody told you about this car for sale. Normally stories like this turn out to be more fantasy than reality. Think about what you are saying. Untubbed Dart? I've only seen one virgin A-body. I've got 5 bucks that says the story turns out to be bogus. I will paypal you the money if it's real.

If it is complete, uncut, Original fender tag and with paper work and history It is worth a lot more 100k
The problems that kill the price is the ones with not history, no paper and no fender tag or aftermarket Tag and the ones that just reappear that kill the market. You really need to know these cars. If it has full documentation original parts and uncut has to be around 250k

It says project. 250k documented project. That would be restored price number for a top shelf car.

Even then, I'd love to see the evidence that ANY 68 car has brought that type of money. Especially as an Automatic.

If it is a real car with documentation then put it up for sale and let the market sort it out. Personally I don't believe that stuff exists until I see it. Way too many stories about some guy has such and such.

If someone actually bought a Hemi Dart back in the day and just never got around to working on it or driving it and now they've died and their wife is trying to sell it then that would be a cool car to take a look at. But I doubt such a car exists until I see the pictures.

When 5 cars sell, 4 under 150 and one at 300, which do you use to estimate the market?

The market is down on these cars, plus the cars that sold recently are not even close to correct, and correctness is everything on these cars. The cream of the crop are the Landy, S&M, Stepp, your Dad's car, and any national winning cars that still command big bucks. 150 of them made, most are still around and very few project cars left. Look how many have not sold in the last few years compared to the cars that sold. work

It's a weird market for sure and QC of the builds are all over the place. Like any car, the best of the best will command a premium, but on average, I think these cars are set in the 150 range. Didn't help that a lot of them came on scene in a short period of time. I don't think there are a ton of buyers for these types currently, but who knows.

I would disregard the high one. It may not be a real deal or a variety of other factors. Dart prices are all over the board as is their condition. These cars are 50 years old. That means the guys that wanted one in their 20's are now in their 70's. And dying every day. I consider this a dying market like 64/65 Race Hemis. Some of the love of these cars was that they were the baddest of the bad. But now your grandmother in street legal Hellcat with a warranty can blow a Hemi Dart away in a drag race. Times they are a changin.
