1962 Dodge Dart 413

Late sixties in America were full of muscle cars; Dodge pioneered the concept in the earlier part of the decade along with Ford and GM. This model was capable of producing 400bhp, which was innovatively fast for 1962. The Dodge Dart 413 sort of puts its engine out there right in the name: it was a 413-cid V8. Plymouths and Dodge brand cars didn’t have 413-cid V8 engines until 1961, so it’s fair to say that Dodge jumped on the bandwagon pretty early. Up until then, sports cars had wedge-shaped chambers, but in 1962, the combustion chamber’s performance was maximized in the 1962 Dodge Dart 413. What became known as the “Max Wedge” engine featured two four-barrel carburetors. It came with a standard 3-speed manual or a fancy push-button type TorqueFlite. Because it was as light as a mid-size car but had the power of a full-size, its torque and acceleration were nearly unparalleled.

As you can see, the Dart 413 has quite some history behind it. Originally designed as a show-car with an aerodynamic design in 1956. The 1962 version became truly compact, as the Dodge Dart was Dodge’s first entrance in the compact car market. The 1960 sat on 116” wheelbase, and the vehicle could be purchased in three models: Pioneer, Seneca and Phoenix. In 1961, the design changed a bit, as well as the standard 4-chamber carburetor was offered.

The 1962 Dodge Dart 413 was its best and last year, thanks to the introduction of the Max Wedge engine that burned oil like today’s Hummers burn gas. Thanks to newly designed rubber insulators, however, the engine vibrations were greatly reduced from all previous cars that have come before, which was a big perk. An interesting interior trick involved the car seats, which swung out to “greet” the driver or the passenger when a door opened in front of an empty seat. It rolled back to the straight position after the person would sit down and close the door. With all of this, the 1962 Dodge Dart 413 was priced at around $350 at the time of its debut.
