1960 Dodge Dart Seneca

09-06-17 (14).JPGRich (Dick) Covelli of Eden, N.Y. pulled in with this monster. I saw the Seneca name tag on the back fender and thought at first it could be an add on because I was on the Seneca Indian Reservation.

Nope. I was wrong. Those tags were factory.

 

I never seen a beauty like this before, a 1960 Dodge Dart Seneca. Covelli had the car for five years now. It came without the original 6 cylinder engine and 3 speed on the column transmission.

09-06-17 (12)He filled the empty hole with a 1968 Super Bee 383 and a 727 tranny. The rear axle was stuffed with 8 3/4 posi and the stock brakes were converted to disk.

He also added duel exhaust and completely rebuilt the suspension with parts for a 1968. I asked if parts were hard to find. He said 60 parts, yes. 68 parts no.

What attracted him to the car was the lines. The license plate holder was innovative, as hot rod shops were sinking them in on custom jobs at the time. He agreed with my statement that the car had a big ass.

This is for sale for $11,500. If interested contact Covelli at (716) 361-1204. If the car doesn’t sell, he plans to paint it Plum Crazy (purple).

I can’t wait to see it in purple.
