Dodge Boulevard Serra 3700 GT, American soul with Italian style,
The coupé was way ahead of its time and looked more like something out of the mid-Eighties than the Sixties. It came about as the result of Chrysler’s relationship with Barreiros, the Spanish manufacturer of engines, trucks, buses, tractors and cars. The duo agreed to market a version of the Dart for Spain — but there was a problem; Spanish law prevented the sale of imports.
However, they found a way around that. The Dart was given a serious makeover by Pedro Serra, one of Spain’s premier coachbuilders, who gave it a tubular chassis along with a total restyling both inside and out, and the Dart was then renamed the 3700 GT. It packed the legendary Chrysler Slant Six (you could find the 3.7-litre mill in almost everything the carmaker built in the Sixties, Seventies and Eighties), which gave it more than enough poke (145bhp) to match the macho aesthetics.
