The 1968 GTS came standard with the new 340 Four Barrel engine, rated at 275 HP. This turns out to be a sweet little motor that gives the GTS plenty of performance and fame. Total GTS production was 8,295 hardtops, and 450 convertibles. The 383 Four Barrel was now optional. Mr. Norm did a batch of converted 440 GSS cars numbering 48 total, which makes them super rare. Then there were a batch of 80 Super Stock Hemi cars produced, for racing, not for street use. All and all, a very good year!
The Dart GTS was part of Dodge's new Scat Pack. This car here was shown in the Dart sales brochure and the Scat Pack flyers.
This women doesn't appear to be enjoying her ride. Or maybe she would rather be behind the wheel? Notice the center grille nose applique.

This GTS does not have the center nose applique, and there seems to be some mystery about when and why some do and some don't have it? This is one of 2,112 hardtop 383 GTS's. The 383 was now rated at 330hp.

This is one of the "Mr. Norm's" GSS 440 cars!
They deleted the "T" and added a "S" for Grand Spaulding Sport. This 1 of 48 made!
440 HP motor looks good under the hood.
Looks like Revell made a model of this car.
No power steering or brakes, there wasn't room.
Automatic transmission was the only option.
Red BB stripe and dog dish hub caps.

426 Race Hemi! Cross Ram dual 4-BBL Holley carbs. Lots of HP and a very tight fit. These cars dominated their classes in drag racing back in 1968 and still to this very day.

Some cars came with these "GTS" letters, while some had the the letters below. Anybody know why?
Here are the "GTS" letters in Red. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason why they had two verisons?
