DODGE IN 1960

After years of positioning itself as a mid-line brand, above entry-level Plymouth but below range-topping Chrysler, Dodge introduced a line of automobiles in 1960 to take on economy models from Ford, Chevrolet, and by default, Plymouth. Economy didn't necessarily mean de-contented or underpowered, and Dodge's new Dart could be had in multiple trim levels with five different engine options. Atop the list was the Dodge Dart Phoenix. For consumers, there was much to like about the new-for-1960 Dodge Dart lineup. Featuring styling by Virgil Exner, the Darts resembled Dodge's larger and more expensive offerings, the Matador and the Polara.

Like all 1960 Chrysler products (excluding Imperial), the Darts used unibody construction, which Dodge billed as stronger, quieter and roomier inside than traditional body-on-frame construction methods. Featuring three trim levels (entry-level Seneca, mid-range Pioneer, and luxurious Phoenix) and a myriad of body styles that included everything from convertibles to station wagons, there was likely a Dart model suitable for most consumers

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here from the John White Ramshead Collection is this beautifully restored 1960 Dodge Dart Phoenix Convertible featuring distinctive jet inspired styling by Virgil Exner's styling department. The Phoenix was the top trim level Dart model for 1960 and included the features of the Dart Pioneer plus special exterior moldings, custom upholstery and interior fittings. The Ramshead Phoenix is finished in typical 1960s light blue metallic exterior paint, topped by a white convertible top, and trimmed in a white and light blue two-tome interior topped by a period Dodge radio. Striking chrome trim and brightwork is detailed throughout the Convertible, and a period California license plate adorns the rear. Presented in beautifully restored condition, this is a lovely Dart Convertible in top-of-the-line Phoenix trim.
