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

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.

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.

The times have always been changing! But there is something about the older cars people still love. Nobody is giving away Model A's, 32 Ford coupes, 55 Chevies and RACE HEMI cars. If anything, the prices are up across the board

The yellow dart looks to be the old dart that Lou Mancini had, it was in a few magazines years ago.

IMO the Mancini Dart is the high water mark. Nothing else comes close in value (exception would be a Landy etc)

I did hear recently about an untubbed '65 race Hemi B-body so perhaps these unicorns do still exist. The race Hemi car is supposedly unmolested and owned by someone who has had it a long time. Sounds like it is all original and never had a cage in it or any modifications.

My buddy is almost finishing putting together one of those, never tubbed and lightly raced. Can't wait to see it at shows next year! up

If it's a Dodge that might be the car that a buddy of mine sold to a guy in BC some time ago. It was nice. Only had one mod done to it. (I can't remember what it was.) And that was done a week before he got it. He paid $350 for it. I used to have some pix of it.

Rhino: If you spray some WD-40 on that intake it will be prettier and stop the corrosion. My buddy with the above Dodge and I used to joke about where all the Diamond intakes went. That's what everybody ran in the old days but you never see them anymore.

Good come back.
There are still some good/rare cars not put in the Publics eye.
I know of a couple of 71 Hemi cars that have not been out in 37-38 years. Sometimes there are more than 4 Aces in a deck.

You seem really proud of yourself. What exactly is the point of this thread??

my guess ,the point was to set all the "KEY BOARD WARRIORS STREIGHT ". now that's just a guess, but if I were a betting man I would put my money where his mouth is! not bad comeback for a Brownie !

So your saying he started this whole thread to prove no one has a clue? Or just that post?

Walters has been buying/selling cars and parts for decades. IF HE doesn't have a clue what his Hemi Dart is worth, is it reasonable others wouldn't either?

The description of what he has for this Hemi Dart in the last long post compared to the first is quite a difference.

I don't think anyone was trying to insult him. With the information that was given, people offered their opinion. The price will be whatever the buyer/seller agree on. When estimating, all you can do is reference what has hit the public market and what has sold. Not sure how that's insulting to anyone.

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


OK, I was there for this one, well documented car.

X2...I am certainly no expert on this car but I was following because I thought he was thinking of buying said car and it was interesting to think he might purchase such a rarity...was looking forward to pics and a story of the purchase... shruggy

I have to chime in here. Not personally very big on beating people up but this whole thread seems a bit silly.

Starts with a vague WIW question regarding a car we all know is going to generate a ton of interest and opinion.

Gets varied, mostly well intentioned (I think) comments, plus some people skeptical about the whole thing. Based on the way this thread started, I don't blame them.

After a bit of internal debate among a few who I consider to be somewhat "in the know",(but nonetheless responding based on very little real information about the car in question) the OP comes back on acting like he's insulted. He goes on to describe the car in some detail along with his vast experience, closing with a "What cars do you own" comment.

Apparently many of us are part of the unwashed masses, but then why ask such a vague question in the first place if you obviously know your stuff. Just trying to get things stirred up? God knows there's enough of that already, every day on this forum.

Anyway, I own a pole barn full of cars. All but three are Mopar. None have a hemi in them. So what? I'd probably have to sell all of them to have any hope of owning one what you profess to possess. Again, so what? This is supposed to be a fun hobby.

There is always someone who has more cars, more value than others. Never understood that argument. Ideally, you take everyone's opinion/information/facts and use it to draw your own conclusions. I think there was a lot of good information shared here. Like most things, the best cars generate the highest values. The drop off from best (condition/history) to average, is significant. I think that's a common theme in car collection we'd all agree on.

I've never understood an angry seller. Sellers want to maximize their dollar, buyers want to get the best deal. Nature of a transaction.

John, I hope you will talk to me about bringing the car to the Hemi A-Body reunion at Carlisle in 2018. There will be a couple of cars that haven't been seen in a while. wave

I thought it was a purchase of a car. Just take offers until u get what you want if you are selling. The 1971 6 pack cuda convertible that was overseas was advertised that way seems like a good way to get a real world value for a car with no downside . Does anyone know if that car sold?

I heard a comment made at the 1991 Scotsdale Barrett Jackson auction by a "expert" about a "original" 1968 Hurst Hemi Dart, it was one of the 130 built out of the original 66 cars Hurst built for Dodge back then confused work shruggy
Another "expert" had looked at two of those M code cars their that year and said one was made up of left over parts by a Hurst employee on the side shruggy
