Damn, that looks familiar! But I still can’t recall what it was. One of the ugliest cars on the road along with the Plymouth Fury back in the 1970’s . . . and the competition was pretty keen for that title at the time.
Dodge shipped 383-spec Darts (minus powertrain) along with factory-prepped 440 engines to Hurst-Campbell, Inc., a Michigan aftermarket company. Hurst-Campbell did the conversion, Dodge reps inspected it, and the cars were forwarded to Grand Spaulding Auto Sales in Chicago, a performance-oriented Dodge dealer. These cars got vehicle identification numbers but were not covered by the factory warranty.
1970 Plymouth Fury III.

Come on, it doesn't look THAT bad! :-)
Loved mine. My grandma traded it in with only 40,000 miles on it. I bought it back from the dealer for $300 and drove it a hundred thousand miles. With a whole lot of carb rebuilds, a tranny rebuild, and tons of new starters. Dang, that thing ate starters. :-)
But you just couldn't kill those 318s.
