Other good stuff about this Mod Top Dart from a previous Ebay listing:

"This is an original Mod Top car. There were 50 built in 1969 with the green on green. There are only 2 registered in the U.S, not including ours. The green paisley top is original from the factory. There is also a diecast model made of this car.

All original numbers matching drive train.

Have owned the car since 1970.

340 Automatic. 114,993 miles. The original engine was rebuilt at 89,000 miles. This car runs great, like it did when it was new.

The car was repainted in 2006 with the original green color. A new original bumblebee white stripe from Year One was applied.

Original owner manual and broadcast sheet included.

It has all new exhaust from manifolds back and new radiator.

Condition: There is one crack on the dashboard (see picture). The headliner has three holes; 2 above visors and 1 above backseat. We have recently purchased new seat covers for the front bench seat and head rest. The front passenger seat has a small tear and driver side has large hole. The top seat covers are currently not installed, but included. The back seat is in great orginal condition. Mod top is original and in good condition other than two places where it has pulled away from the chrome near the back fenders (one on passenger side, other on drivers-see pictures). The carpet is original and in very good shape. The orginal rear fenders were rusted and we replaced in 2006 with all-new parts from Year One. The trunk liner was also purchased at Year One and is a replication of the original."
