Just thought I'd bring this back around because:

Jim I pulled the M-Code Dart out of storage and hoping to do a few things over the winter to get it (maybe luck ) on the track sometime next year. Lots of undoing the inner fender well header cut outs (have original sheet metal for both sides) and the transmission and console floor tunnel for when it was converted to a 4-speed. Has the original 3.91 rear and have two of most everything to chose from. Still thinking it looks more like F5 than F8 but no big deal it's still going to stay GREEN.....with a black interior (original). Undecided about the black vinyl but will probably stay and even though it's a "stripe delete" I always wanted a black tail stripe so that may go on............and still leave the front fender GTS callouts.

Here's what I have for a K-frame, what do you think? Does it look like an M-Code (big block) original K-frame........................and then there's that F5/F8 green paint confused

Mike

Here is the k-frame in my 69 GTS. Looks F5 to me...

My car is F5 body color with F8 upper and lower door frames. This photo shows original factory paint F8 lower door frame at right. In the center of the photo, F5 and F8 are next to each other, showing that the factory first painted the whole car and door F5 then masked around the door frames, then painted the door frames F8.

the other way around - Upper Door Frame (visible area inside of door weatherstrip) in F8 lacquer, allow to dry, tape that area off & paint entire car in F5 enamel up

You need a fan shroud. M-codes came with solid black grills not painted. If you have painted one they where replaced at sometime

When the "50 Fastest Muscle Car" list was done years ago how did they pick the cars that made it on that list and where did the M-Code Cuda and Dart end up....................did they even make the list, don't remember. I know the A12 RR was third at the time and IMO really a true 5/6 passenger muscle car with more than just two seats like aluminum skinned and fiberglass body sports cars in position 1 & 2 rolleyes The 5 passenger Dart and Cuda M-Codes should have been on there. Thought it was from back in the day magazine tests? Just trying to bump this up again wink

Was the criteria for making the list "back in the day" magazine road test articles??


If so then from the "50 Fastest" list I've seen and the June 1969 Drag Racing Magazine test the Dart GTS 440 M-Code should be listed as the SECOND fastest and FIRST QUICKEST real 4/5 passenger MUSCLE CAR of that era !

Check it out Jim E/T 12.70 @ 112 MPH boogie boogie

Here's another one from that article and has anyone ever heard this about the K-frame being "relocated" in the M-Code Dart and I guess Cuda? The way I read it is the K-frame was not modified but relocated in the engine compartment. Does that mean bolted in a slightly different position to the chassis? I also think there is little or no room to move the K-frame left or right but only forward or rearward where it is bolted but that would upset the entire driveline even if it was an inch or less, but would that matter? Don't think this is a true statement but.......................what's that "never say never" thing........... wink


scope is that a washer under the air cleaner wing nut....... wink panic laugh2

This is first time I have ever heard of a "k-frame relocation", who is the author of this article? I have helped restore a few factory 440 Darts both 68 and 69 and the factory 383 k-frame had no changes that I could tell... shruggy

who is the author of this article?


Dodge funny car driver Charlie Allen who states in the article that he also shoehorned a 440 into his own '68 Dodge Dart. Maybe he had to relocate the K-frame to do his 440 install and just assumed that's what Chrysler had to do? shruggy


Yeah that's right GREEN F8 GREEN boogie boogie

What I would give for one of his funny car body's! Reed Koeppe had a 67 Dart funny car body about 10 years ago and I was too late to buy it. No idea if it was one of Charlie Allen's cars, but at that point I didn't care, I just wanted it! Who knows what he did to his, maybe he tried to set it back for better weight transfer? shruggy

The former Charlie Allen Challenger funnycar body was on Ebay maybe 2 or 3 years ago.

Meaning the mounts were moved or made to accommodate the 383-440 engine big block. Never saw any difference on the car I had or the extra 69 383k-frame I still have. I’ll check the sb frame I to see if the pass side mount is the same, maybe both were moved.
