BELLE CENTER The Dart was Dodge's entry in the growing compact market. Introduced in 1960, the first Dodge Dart was actually a small full size car. It was "reborn" in 1963 as a true compact. The Dart lineup would grow to include the Demon and Swinger models, as well as the Dodge Sport and Dart GTS. The Dart was introduced as a lower-priced, shorter wheelbase, full-sized model. It became a mid-size car in 1962, and then a compact car between 1963 and 1976. The Dodge Swinger was introduced in 1969. Dodge updated the front and rear styling of the Darts in 1970. The hood featured long, narrow hood scoops, replacing the smaller vents. The Swinger also came standard with a three-speed manual gearbox.



Steve and Janet Bechtel, of Belle Center, brought their 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger to The Lima News' Real Wheels Cruise-In. They have owned it for two years and enjoy driving it and going to car shows.
