A Build Worth Checking Out: 1976 Dodge Dart Lite by Hotchkis Performance

We thought we’d point you in the right direction of a 1976 Dodge Dart Lite that is being built up right now with the finishing touches by Hotchkis Performance. Bangshift.com featured the project recently, which is powered by a late model 6.4 Hemi engine swap and all of the chassis, suspension and brake upgrades to match. While we normally prefer less of a resto-mod appearance and more period correct go-fast components, we can appreciate this build for what it is since it will be seeing action at Pikes Peak, the Targa Newfoundland and various other events. Check out some pictures on the following page and follow the link for all of the build details…

Row-‘o-nickels welds are always a sign of a quality build:9 11 12 15 18 19 20 21 23 25 26 27 29 31
With full cage and safety equipment, it should be coming in at around 3,000 pounds. Not bad for a 70’s era American muscle car.
