Dad bought Mom a brand new ‘67 Dart 2-door, white w/red vinyl bench seats and the 225 slant 6. Only options were the Torqueflite and an AM radio. Two years later, when I turned 16, I found two chrome exhaust finishers from a wrecked Roadrunner and added these to the options list (bolted one to the chassis beneath the bumper on the right rear). Caught a few double-takes on the street! Mom didn’t seem to mind. When she approved my adding a cassette deck in the glovebox, the Dart became my go-to weekend cruiser and date mobile (PLEASE may I take the Dart?!?) through high school. Even got to take it to college for a semester before I was able to scrape together enough to buy my own first car. LOTS of memories ... all good.
