This web page is dedicated to preserving the history of a lesser-known factory drag racing vehicle in 1966 affectionately called the D/Dart.

Officially it was called the 'Maximum Performance 273 Engine Dart Drag Package'
The Dodge Division coded it as D66-HP-1.

The car could be ordered through a Dodge dealer as a Super Stock package and was designed for racing in the D/S (D Stock) class at NHRA, AHRA, and NASCAR drag strips. Plymouth did not offer a factory assembled equivalent.

Where are these cars now? Where were the cars in 1966? Dig through your old photos and home movies and see if you have any vintage or recent images of a D/Dart!

Through this web page I hope to locate some of the factory D/Darts, or at least find more photos that can be shared to preserve their brief racing history.

I feel that the D/Dart is an excellent example of how the Dodge factory supported racing on a lower budget level. Even though the car itself had a short life and may not have been the top level contender it was meant to be, it is an excellent example of the support and enthusiasm the Dodge factory engineers gave racing and the buying public. They were not afraid to take chances, have fun, and let the general public participate without going broke.

Special thanks to Alan Hvizdos and Kenny Stewart for their wealth of information and photos to add to mine at the beginning stages of this webpage.
