Larry Lenzi’s 1969 Dodge Dart 413 Stroker Build

Larry Lenzi’s 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger build is a real nice example of A-body Mopars that most of us enjoy. He purchased it back in 1987 and has invested a lot of time and money to get the muscle car into this condition. Check out the video we put together for him and read more details below:

Being a big Mopar fan attracted by the Dodge Chargers and Challengers in the 1970’s movies, Larry purchased this 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger 33 years ago with minor issues and 340 motor.

He purchased a 360 block with a Stroker kit making it 413 cubes and dressed it with aluminum heads, Barry Grant carburetor, Harland Sharp roller rockers and new headers. It has a 150 shot of Nitrous making it a 700 horsepower muscle car.

Brand new wiring harness and MSD ignition are also in place. The power is controlled by fast shifting automatic transmission with 4,200 stall converter and to make the 1969 Dart Swinger stops as good as it accelerates Larry has install Wilwood disc brakes in the front.

To get this beautiful stance Larry has mini tubbed the 1969 Dodge Dart Swinger and sets in on Hoosier’s at the back and small tire Mickey Thompson’s in the front. The Mopar has fiberglass front fenders and hood scoop. The exhaust is a 3-inch stainless tailpipe from the headers to the rear end turned down to the ground.

The interior is redone as well with new carpeting, headliner, gauges, Scat seats and Grant steering wheel. It has a new digital tac that lights up in Red as the RPM’s go higher. The battery sits in the trunk accompanied by the Nitrous bottle and fuel cell.

Larry only drives the 1969 Dodge Dart when the weather is nice and enjoys the thumbs up he gets everywhere he goes. He treats the Mopar as a family member, which brought home 8 trophies during the last couple of years.
