In 1964, Chrysler offered an optional V8 with it's popular A-body Dodge Valiant. Banking on the resulting success of the package, Chrysler went on to release a decade-worth of low-priced, high-performance muscle cars based on the Valiant, including the Dart GT and GTS, the Swinger 340, the Demon, and the Duster. Color photography of restored and factory-original vehicles, along with archival images, are accompanied by a history for each, there are discussions of design and production, driving impressions, accessories and options, popular performance upgrades, and the cars' successful histories at the drag strip. Steve Statham is the author of the MBI muscle car books Camaro and Pontiac GTO: The Great One.
