1968 Dodge Dart Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
To stay competitive in an ever changing market and to match such vehicles as the Chevrolet Nova SS, Dodge introduced the Dart GTS in 1968. In GTS trim the vehicle came equipped with a 340 cubic-inch V8 engine producing 275 horsepower or could be ordered with an optional 383 cubic-inch V8 that produced 300 horsepower. Other enhancements included a Rallye suspension, larger wheels and rims, and exhaust system complete with a chrome trim. Performance could be further increased with the optional four-speed Hurst floor shift manual or the Torque-Flite automatic. Standard was the three-speed manual transmission which proved to be the least favorite when the GTS package was ordered. The styling of the GTS version was aggressive. It was easily identifiable with the rear end 'bumble-bee' stripe, body side racing stripes, bulges in the hood, and air vents. These vehicles were void of most amenities including power steering and were purpose-built to go fast in a straight line. To add to the performance most came with aftermarket ignition kits, hoses, headers, and air cleaner.
