20. Dodge Dart
The Dodge Dart may have started as a regular compact car in 1966, but soon, it turned into a significant force on the muscle car market. Due to the light weight of the car, any V8 in it could produce highly exhilarating performance. But when Chrysler offered the 360 and even the 383 V8, things got serious.
Since they produced the Dart from 1966 to 1976, there shouldn’t be any problem finding a nice, relatively inexpensive example. Best of all, since the Dart’s engine bay can fit almost any Mopar engine, it is definitely a great basis for a project car.
