Considering that this is a 1969 Dodge Dart GTS convertible born with 383 big block mated to a 4-speed, most people would restore the rare Mopar back to original specs. Well, Mike McKee's is not like most people.

The owner of McKee's Hot Rod Shop went on with a full Hellcat drivetrain. While he races the '69 Dodge Dart, Mike mostly drives it on the street. So he added some comfort by installing air conditioning and heated seats.

I would not criticize him. It is his car, and all that matters is what makes him happy. Running a hot rod shop, Mike will also get more attention and customers when showing up at various events with his Hellcat swapped '69 Dart.
