Famous Hellcat-Swap 1967 Dodge Dart For Sale on eBay!

With Dodge SRT recently announcing the 2020 Super Stock Challenger—a worthy successor to the 2018 Dodge Demon—you may have the itch to trot on down to your local Dodge dealer and order one. That would certainly be our move—if we hadn’t spotted this little tidbit buried on our eBay Motors feed this morning. If a fully loaded 800-plus-hp Challenger is in your budget for around $90K, you may want to consider saving, oh, $15K or so, and getting something far rarer—not to mention faster—in this 1967 Dodge Dart Hellcat swap, famously built on the MotorTrend App’sFast N Loud.

When the 1967 Dodge Dart went across the block at Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale, Arizona, auction on January 27, 2016 for $74,800 in a no-reserve bidding war, we thought we’d seen the last of the “Shart Cat.” This was just after we had checked it out in person at the Holley/DiabloSport booth at SEMA in 2015, and discovered that in spite of the Dart’s intentional rough looks, it was constructed quite well and to a high standard.

We wouldn’t think twice about strapping in and making a pass down the eighth-mile—something the Gas Monkey Garage crew did during Roadkill Nights on a rough makeshift track in the Pontiac Silverdome parking lot to the tune of 5.86 seconds. (By comparison, you’ll recall our recent 2018 Dodge Demon drag test in which we ran a best of 6.71 in the eighth, equivalent to a high 10.50 quarter-mile e.t.)

The car is for sale on eBay here for a “Buy It Now” price of $74,900—just a scant $100 over the original Barrett-Jackson selling price. The images on the eBay auction shows the car just as we remember it. In contrast with a new Dodge Hellcat Challenger or even a Demon, the Shart Cat is significantly lighter, has far more traction—thanks to huge, sticky Mickey Thompson slicks—and a safety rollcage actually built and NHRA certified for the nines. (As sold, the Demon has been publicly banned from NHRA competition.) If we extrapolate the Shart Cat’s best eighth-mile e.t. into a quarter-mile, we get a 9.28. That’s equivalent to a ten-bus-length gap on a well-driven Dodge Demon.
