Check http://www.forabodiesonly.com/mopar/ there have been a couple threads on them in the past. I do not remember values being discussed though.

1 of 480 made, 1 of 300 that were completed at the dealer .

This one was completed by dealer in LA. So fender tags show at Dart GT.

This is a Dodge Dart GT Body with Charger elements (it has all of them) that were being market tested for desirability. It is referred to as a:
DartCharger kit car or a DartCharger, ordered with no badges.
Yes, numbers match. has the Charger air filter, alum valve covers, 10" drum brakes, etc No AC

Upgrades done to make it a reliable daily driver:

Alum. racing radiator
Mopar Electronic ignition (Dist, module, and voltage regulator)
Dual field electric/charging system - Powermaster Alt
7 blade fan w/clutch
battery in truck over rear wheels w/ Summit Racing kill switch
rear sway bar
new tires

has rust through on drivers rear fender, and I have the replacement stampings.
