In 1970 Dodge proclaimed, “If you can find a hotter performance car for less than $2,808, buy it!” The Dart received a subtle redesign for 1970, and the revised rear styling actually cut trunk space almost in half, as compared to the 1969 model. The Swinger name was applied to all the Dart two-door hardtops, except in the high-line Custom series. A number of other changes were made to the Dart line to avoid internal competition with Dodge’s new Challenger. The Dart convertible was discontinued, along with the optional 383, leaving the 340 four-barrel as the top Dart engine.
