1970 Dodge Dart Apparel and Accessories by Legend Lines
The Dart was refreshed for 1970 with front and rear changes designed to bring the car closer to the design themes found in Dodge’s full-size vehicles through grille and contour changes. Dodge updated the front and rear styling. The hood featured long but narrow hood scoops, replacing the smaller vents. 14-inch wheels became standard equipment. Part-throttle downshift was added to the 8-cylinder automatic transmissions. In compliance with FMVSS 108, side marker lights and reflectors were installed at all four corners. The "Swinger" name was applied to all the Dart two-door hardtops except in the high-line custom series. A number of other changes were made to the Dart line to avoid internal competition with Dodge's new Challenger: the Dart convertible was discontinued along with the optional 383 ci, leaving the 275 bhp 340 4-barrel V8 as the top Dart engine.
