But I can't afford the gas anymore. Takes a second mortgage to fill the tank.

The FE motors! I wanted to get the 390 when I got my '67 Cougar - but the GT model, in which the 390 was included, was beyond my financial abilities.

My first car was a 1966 Dodge Dart. with the under-powered 225 "slant-six". That is the part of the H.P. pool my cars have always come from.

But it was a breeze to replace the starter. About a year after I was born, my Dad bought a slightly used 1960 Pontiac Laurentian (Canadian version of the full size Catalina) with a straight six and it transported a family of six for about 15 years. At least your Dart was about 1000 pounds lighter.
