The Dodge Dart GT Could Sport Three Different Engines

The 1964 Dodge Dart GT stood apart from the rest of the lineup, which included the entry-level Dart 170 and the mid-range 270, for two reasons:

first, it was only offered as a 2-door hardtop or convertible, and second, its interior design was unique.

 In terms of engine options, consumers could choose any of the three available engines for their Dart GT as long as they were ready to spend more. 

The base engine was a 2.8-liter slant-six with 101 horsepower, 

and while it performed admirably once it got going, its beginning acceleration was undoubtedly lacking. 

 Darts equipped with this engine took more

 than 20 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph.
