This web site is dedicated to the underrated, underappreciated Dodge Dart GTS. This includes model years 1967-1968 and 1969! The "SMALL" Mopar Muscle Car from the 60's. The GTS shared the same A-body platform as the 67-68-69 Plymouth Barracuda on a 111" wheelbase. The first year GTS came equipped ONLY with the 383 Four Barrel for 1967. This was followed in 1968 with the purpose built, high winding HIGH PERFORMANCE 340 Four Barrel as the standard powerplant with the 383 Four Barrel as an option. This Registry does not include the S/S Hemi Dart as they were not based on the GTS. In 1969, the "M" code 440 GTS was introduced along with the 340 and 383's! The GTS was the top of the line for the Dart line. The GTS was only available for those three years. Also, 67-68-69 were the only years that the Dart had the 383 and 440 engines available.




What the GTS Registry would like is some information from you! This is to create a data base for all GTS owners. Hopefully the GTS Registry will be able to trace the origins of the '68 grill center piece, the '69 headrests, and the infamous "Recall Rims". Does your GTS have them?? Original?? What color was your 340 block in 1969?? Blue or turquoise?? Burning questions that we have all asked ourselves. Right?? The GTS Registry was created to help answer those questions. Regardless if your GTS is a project car, a rotisierre restoration, a pro-street modified car, a "barn fresh" find, or a full-out race car, the GTS Registry is here to bring all GTS owners together to help share information.


This registry will be divided into two major sections. The first will be dedicated to the 1967 and 1968 GTS. The second section will be for the 1969 GTS. Hopefully you will find this registry informative. Also featured is a "Reference" section with helpful photos and part numbers, a "Lost and Found" section, and a very informative section regarding the 1969 440 "M" code GTS.


Due to concerns from fellow GTS owners, the last three digits of your VIN will NOT be displayed on this website! However, please include the ENTIRE VIN in your email so your GTS can placed in the proper production order. Once again, the GTS Registry will NOT display the last three numbers of your VIN. You will still be able to see in what order your GTS was made.
Recently, there have been concerns by GTS owners not wishing to share their personal info with the GTS Registry. There is nothing to be afraid of. This is not a scheme to gather and/or distribute personal or GTS information. I do NOT share this information with any other data base. If you don't want to show your first name or location, that is fine. I really just want to get your GTS's information. I prefer a more personal approach to gathering and displaying the history of our GTS. I did not want this to be another dull "registry" that only lists the partial VIN in a list of partial VINs. How boring.
Without the devoted owners, the GTS would be nothing special. The owner history of the car makes it interesting. There have been some great friendships started via the GTS Registry, so PLEASE don't sell yourself short by not wanting to include your GTS in the Registry. We are in this hobby together to have fun and share our experiences with other GTS owners.




How to REGISTER your GTS?!?!?

That's simple. I ask you to email me with your GTS information. Please include the following:

  • 1) Year
  • 2) Engine/trans
  • 3) Rear gear
  • 4) Original body color/current color
  • 5) If vinyl or convertible top: what color
  • 6) Original type interior and color/current color
  • 7) Stripe color? Type or stripe delete?
  • 8) Your first name
  • 9) Your general geographic location

  • 11) Build date ( if known )
  • 12) Is is original/restored? Customized? Pro-street? Race only??
  • 13) Any special options from the factory?
  • 14) Any "history" on your car?? Special memories??

    Also, if you have any pictures of your GTS that you would like to share, please include it in your email! As long as there is available storage space, the GTS Registry would like to help "show off" your A-body mopar to the world! We would only like to hear from CURRENT GTS owners. Info on former cars, or the one you know is for sale on the other side of town is NOT valid info for the data base. Please let the GTS Registry know!

    Once I get your email and update the site with your info, you will become a GTS Registry Member!!! Your "GTS Number" will be based upon the order in which I receive your info. You will have your "GTS Number" listed immediately after your VIN placement! If you have more than one GTS listed, you will recieve a different number for each car!

    Upon updating the GTS Registry with your info, I personally email back to every GTS owner about their GTS's listing. Please check your "Junk Mail" or "Spam" box to see if your email server dropped the response email in there.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Here are the GTS Registry entries for the two most recent months: Let's get those projects finished and get that GTS of yours back on the road!

    June 2016---June 2016

  • LS23H9B427***: GTS#624: Originally bought in Battle Creek, MI in 1969, this 1969 GTS made its way to Ohio, and now to Wisconsin. Eric is the current owner of this 383/ 4 speed GTS. Built on Monday June 23, 1969, it came painted F3 Light Green with a Green vinyl top and F3 Light Green bucket seat interior. It has a white bumble bee stripe against all that green-ness! Thankfully, the GTS was Ziebart undercoated and that has kept the rust at bay for all of these years.

  • LS23P8B286***: GTS#623: Darren K. from Ontario reports that his father's GTS has a very rare option. Darren's dad is the second owner of this 1968 GTS. Purchased in 1972 with 19,000 miles on it, he has only added another 40,000 miles in the past 42 years. The 340/727 power train drives the 3.91 gears (originally 3.23 gears). What's so rare? You ask? This GTS is painted FF1 Light Green with a Dark Green bucket seat/console interior and this is offset by the DARK GREEN PAINTED hardtop!

  • LS27P8B281***: GTS#622: Jack from New Jersey found his parent's One-of-44 1968 GTS 340/4 speed convertible after a 36 year search! It was hauled out of the woods, but looking complete. His father ordered the GTS in 1967 and the car was built on February 7, 1968 with a sticker price of $3375. Jack's mom drag raced the GTS in 1970 and won three events!! Painted QQ1 Bright Blue with a Light Blue interior, black convertible top and white bumble bee stripe. Options included bucket seats w/ head rests, AM radio, and tinted windshield. The family lost track of the GTS when they sold it around 1979. It is rough, but complete. Oddly enough, the GTS came delivered with GT interior door emblems-and they are still there!

  • LS23P9B442***: GTS#621: Kelly from Oregon just got his uncle's 1969 340 GTS! The GTS has sat in his uncle's shop (Kool Kustoms in Winston, OR)for the past 30 years. Kelly's uncle is the 2nd owner of this 340/727/3.23 GTS. Originally a EXPORT car, this GTS was shipped to Germany for a US serviceman. Built on Tuesday July 8, 1969, the GTS was painted F5 Medium Green with a F3 Light Green interior.

The original 340 has been replaced with a 360/380 crate motor and has a 727 and 3.91 gears backing it up. Built on Wednesday, October 9, 1968 the GTS rolled out painted in F8 Dark Green with F* interior, black vinyl top, and black interior. Options included were factory A/C, power steering, LH remote mirror, 3 speed wipers, AM radio, underhood insulation, and tinted windows.

Also a great opportunity to help promote out GTS's and hopefully inspire more GTS owners out there to enter there cars here on the GTS Registry!

    Now for some SPECIAL NEWS from the GTS Registry......

    Some of you may remember Alan Miller running a 1967-1968 GTS Registry back in the late 1980's/early 1990's before the popularity of the internet. Alan has GRACIOUSLY sent the surviving archives from his Registry. I will be combining the two to see what it may bring! There is some really neat stuff that Alan has sent along. Just glancing thru the paperwork, I spotted a couple of entries in both Registries!!! The "shared" entries will be shown with a highlighted VIN. The remaining entries from Alan will be also shown in a separate section at the end of each Registry. That way we can keep track of some of the earlier VIN and maybe unite some current and past owners!

    The GTS Registry has also been contacted by Patrick Dean who ran a 1969 GTS Registry during the same time period as the Miller Registry. The Dean Registry can be found on the 1969 GTS Registry page. The GTSs found in both the GTS Registry and the Dean Registry are highlighted in both. As a bonus, Mr. Dean also had a small 1969 340 Swinger Registry included with his GTS list. That is also shown on the 1969 GTS Registry page in honor of the our GTS high perfomance A-body cousin-the 340 Swinger. The Dean Registry also has 25 "M" code 440 GTS cars on the list!!
    Make sure you check out both the 1967/1968 and the 1969 GTS Registry pages to see the Miller and Dean Registries!!
