The Dart returned for 1961 with the same array of models, but the bodies were re-styled with sculptured fins. The grilles were now concave, with the quad headlights inset at the outer edges. The 12-volt alternator, pioneered on the 1960 compact Valiant, was extended to all Chrysler products. The Dart convertible, only ever available in the Phoenix series, was now sold with V-8 only.

This striking ’61 Dart Phoenix D-500 Convertible Coupe features an excellent restoration, this car is painted in black, which Dodge called “Midnight.” The paint is excellent, as is all the brightwork. The interior is done in red pleated vinyl and looks brand new. Matching red carpet covers the floor. A black vinyl top is fitted with a red vinyl boot cover.

The engine compartment houses a 330-bhp, 383-cu. in. V-8 engine featuring “Cross Ram” induction, it is very clean and correctly detailed. It has dual Carter four-barrel carburetors that are fitted with correct oval air cleaners. The wheels, with thin whitewall tires and Dodge wheel covers, complete the presentation of this stunning convertible. This exceptionally desirable example is one of only 68 built, and one of only six cars built with black exterior and red interior.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/fl20.
