The 1968 Dodge Dart was a compact car produced by Dodge from 1960 to 1976 in North America. It was offered as a two-door or four-door sedan, a two-door hardtop coupe, a convertible, a station wagon, or a two-door fastback. The 1968 model introduced the Dart GTS, which was a high-performance version, featuring a 340 V8 engine producing up to 275 horsepower. It also featured a blacked-out grille, chrome side stripes, and rallye wheels. The Dart also offered three-speed manual transmission with an optional four-speed manual or TorqueFlite automatic transmission. The 1968 Dart was designed to appeal to those who wanted a compact car with a big-car look and feel, and it became very popular among the young generation at the time.
