    How many LS swaps? Yea they are cheap and easy, but it sucks seeing the big and small blocks going away.

    This was a relatively small meet. Next Sunday will be the big one. Sometimes as many as 400 cars. A little bit of everything.

    How many are LS swapped in place of the factory big/small block though?

    There's a lot but there are also a lot of purists that leave the iron in.

    The 55, 56 and 57s are really bringing some big money these days, especially in this condition. Beautiful car!

    My favorite year, hard to find one in decent shape for under $50k these days.

    Stop and think of all those beautiful 55, 56 and to some extent 57's Chevy's that ended up beatin' and bangin' on dirt and paved tracks throughout the country. Also all those wonderful 30's and 40's coupes too

    The '64 Dart GT is one of my favorites too. Liked them ever since I bought some parts off of one (a coupe) back around '79. I would have bought the whole car, but it was badly rusted out and I didn't have anywhere to store it. I still have the backup lights and their wires from it.

    Have had chances to buy others since then, but none that were as nice as the one in the picture. Wonder if it has a 273 V8 or a Slant 6? Came across an interesting Dart coupe a few years back that was for sale in Mt. Airy NC - claimed to be formerly owned by Frances Bavier ("Aunt Bee" of The Andy Griffith Show). But it too was badly rusted and the celebrity connection priced it too high to make sense to buy.

    When I was in school in the early 1980s I met a guy who loved the 1965 Darts (had several of them). He took me up to his dad's garage and showed me a project car that he claimed was a 1965 Dart convertible with a Hurst package. It did have gold paint and black stripes that could have been original, and a floor shifter, but it was so disassembled and had so much bodywork going on that I couldn't tell if it was authentic. He wanted to sell it to me, but typical for a college student I had no money or place to store it. I've lost contact with him and it, and I've tried to research this combination, but cannot find anything to verify it was ever produced. Has anybody ever heard of this, or was he trying to oversell me (as I suspected)?

    Ford Hurst cars were black with a gold stripe. I’ve never heard of Dodge Dart Hurst cars but that doesn’t mean they aren’t out there.

    My bad. I mistook Hurst for Hertz.

    I go to the Back to the 50s car show at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, they get about 12,000 cars every year. Any car 1964 and older can register to enter the fairgrounds. I thought I add a few pictures.
