America's Fabulous New Economy Car: The 1960 Dodge Dart!

You know what makes a Sunday afternoon just about perfect? Three-and-a-half minutes of a hyperbolic sales spiel from Lawrence Welk announcer Lou Crosby: "The newest and finest car to be introduced to the low-priced field for 32 years!"

The '60 Dart was much bigger and heavier than the later A-body Darts, weighing in at around 3,500 pounds, so it's a bit of a challenge to imagine it as an economy car. Sure was pretty, though!
