hey now, both the 65 Dart 273 and 74 Dart 318 I've owned would have been fantastic towers. If I had one now I'd show you all maximum Scampdom!

Well, the Dart is different. The Scamp was based on the Plymouth Valiant. I kinda like the 2013 Dart, kinda...

The Chrysler A-bodies (Dart, Valiant, Scamp) share most parts in my experience. Chrysler A-Bodies: Plymouth Valiant and its spinoffs, including the Plymouth Duster, Dodge Dart, and Valiant Charger
At least as similar as a Boler and Scamp.

I was a proud owner of a 61 Valiant with a slant six, 3 speed and a nice back seat.......

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Why Not???? First ya gotta find one that still runs, and then you have to try out those great drum brake they were infamous for before giving up on the whole idea!!!!!
In cars, the good old daze weren't really that good.

Only a couple of the cars mentioned had front drums.
Mandatory ABS has made the point moot, since new cars are no longer allowed to have fully functioning brakes.
This was just a fun exercise in labels and semantics anyway.
