Story Of Jason Owens 1967 Dodge Dart Pro Street

Those of you who follow our Mopar Muscle Cars Facebook page will probably remember this Pro Street 1967 Dodge Dart as the photo of it we posted received tons of love. Few days later the owner Jason “Jake” Owens got in touch and we did a full feature with video and full details on the build. Enjoy!


Originally from Wampee, South Carolina and currently living in Yuma, Arizona Jake acquires this Dodge Dart 6 years ago. It was a shell sitting on square tube chassis with the intention to build a hot street car out of it.

As an Aircraft/Fighter Jet mechanic he has done all the fabrication, wiring, body work and paint himself. If you ask me, Jake has done a tremendous job. At first he painted the 1967 Dodge Dart with a single stage Hot Rod Black. Later on he laid the stunning TCP Firemist Purple the muscle car wears at the moment.

The ’67 Dart rides on Weld Racing 2.0 Magnum Drag wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson slicks and the rear is a Strange ladder bar 9’35 splined with 4.29 Pro gears.
