The 440-powered 1969 Dodge Dart GTS was a homologation special, so that Dodge could lay waste to the NHRA's Factory Super Stock classes. Mr. Norm pioneered the fit in a '68 Dart, called it GSS (Grand Spaulding Sport, named for his performance-leaning suburban Chicago dealership), and built more than 50 of 'em; Dodge liked it so much that they co-opted the idea a year later. The Grand Spaulding boys once again engineered it,. A special K-member, new motor mounts, a couple of block modifications to accept the new mount, plus new exhaust manifolds, oil pan and heat shielding made up the conversion.From the outside, you'd never know anything untoward was happening--only the subtlest of engine callouts on the side-blistered hood would bring attention to itself, and only then if someone knew what they were looking for. The tail stripe was comparatively tame for its day. It offered only factory colors and wheel trims, even the GTS name stayed, carried over from the so-so selling 383 models Dodge was peddling. Inside, same thing: a 120 MPH speedometer (which could be pegged, but only just), a floor shift, and little else--not even a tach.The 440 was the same basic 375hp RB unit that had been the scourge of the strip since its launch in 1967. Available in B- and select C-bodies, it was widely considered a rival for Mopar's own Hemi in those days, exchanging a smidge of torque for a little less top-end power.A total of 640 of these M-code Darts were built, all were dealer-ordered, and all were more or less the same: a 375hp four-barrel 440 Magnum/Torqueflite combo underhood, bucket seats, floor shifter, console, and precious little else. No four-speeds, possibly for clearance issues and probably because the Dart's rear couldn't take the extra punishment--no Dana rear was sized for Dart use. No power or disc brakes, only manual 10-inch drums; you couldn't get manual discs in those days, and you couldn't fit a power booster under the hood anyway, what with all that engine there. Manual steering only, because the power steering pump might cost a couple of ponies under full throttle off the line, and possibly because the plumbing couldn't be resolved. Colors, wheel trims, and an optional rear-axle ratio (3.91 gears instead of the stock 3.55s) were about all the boxes you could tick.
