    I think it depends on the basic body shape. Have a rendering (even a simple one??) Remember Darts came in a number of body styles- I'm guessing you're looking at something in the roughly 70's era.

    I have seen it applied to 71 Chargers- it looked natural- more natural then the 70.

    Please dont, I mean go ahead if you must but to me it just would'nt work. The Darts have cool lines IMO by themselves. Build a Daytona clone out of a Charger. I cant even stand the 71 Superbird clones personally. Now if you want to wide body a Dart with some tasteful aero touches, that would be a big hit. Cloning a Daytona out of a Dart would be kinda venturing into the Joe dirt zone a little to deep I think lol.

    In my opinion, you could do it better.

    Drop it down, better wheel/tire combo, wide body for sure, and possibly rework the roof line.

    But at that point you probably could have just bought a charger shell.
