Mopar looks for not a lot of moolah.

There are plenty of affordable classics out there, but not many are going to be a pre-Oil Crisis Mopar. This 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger is a welcomed exception to that trend delivers vintage Mopar styling, and it should be quite an affordable classic when it goes up for auction next month through GAA Classic Cars.

For buyers who want a cool-looking classic but can do without the high-powered muscle, this Dart Swinger is just the car. Under the hood, this Dart uses Chrysler's 225 CID slant-six engine putting out 145 horsepower, which is a far cry from the 230- and 275-hp ratings of the V8-powered Darts that year. Since this car won't be pressed for drag-racing action, the three-speed automatic makes this ideal for cruising. 

The body of this 1971 Dodge Dart is all original and rust free, and with the exception of a repaint on the passenger door, this Dart Gold paint job is all original. The body looks straight and smooth, while the chrome and vinyl appear to be flawless.

Inside, the Ember Gold interior looks just as clean and original as the outside, and it is equipped with the wood-grain, rim-blow steering wheel. The only real modifications made to this car include all-LED lighting – including converted LED headlights – and a modern stereo with Bluetooth and streaming music capabilities and 8x9-inch Kicker speakers in the rear deck.
