Franco`s 1970 Dodge


Web Page

Welcome to my web page tribute to this mighty little MoPar!

The Dodge Dart Swinger 340 was the smallest member of Dodge's Scat Pack in 1970. Marketed as a true performance compact, the emphasis of the Swinger 340 was affordability. Advertisements of the time boldly stated: "If you can find a hotter car for less than $2808, buy it." The 340 in "Swinger 340" was a high-winding and potent 275-horse small-block V8 engine that turned this little A-body into a mid 14-second 1/4 mile screamer. The respect these performance A-body cars received on the street is embedded in the asphalt. Chrysler put together 13,785 340 Swingers in 1970. Today, most of the remaining cars are retired from the street racing scene and are being restored by avid enthusiasts.

The Dodge Dart Swinger 340 was offered in 1969 and 1970 only. It was replaced by the Demon 340 in 1971. Did you know that a few '71 Swinger 340's were built for Canada anyway? As a matter of fact, a few '72s were put together by Chrysler as well. The '72s were a more confined run and I will have more information on these cars later.

There is a 1970 Dart Swinger 340 registry available for enthusiasts called D.A.R.T.S.
D.A.R.T.S. is also an excellent source of information for anyone who owns one of these cars.
