Another D/Dart to be used as a daily driver.

The story goes that the original owner who purchased it right off the showroom floor had an accident that pretty much destroyed

the right-rear quarter-panel, and he lost interest in keeping the car.  He sold it to a San Francisco cab driver who lived nearby,

and it was then used as a commute vehicle until I found it parked along the street one night.  Everything looked right about

the car, including the radio delete plate which had been cobbled up to fit an aftermarket radio/cassette unit.  I kept leaving

notes until the driver finally called me, so I could inspect the car.  Sure enough, the numbers were a match for the D-Dart,

and a deal was struck.  I was the third owner.

Ferris Miles SCCA A Sedan Trans Am as restored

This one was a D/Dart in origin. Other Trans Am Darts, such as the Group 44 Dart, were based upon the Dart 270 sedan.
