So nice to see the Plymouth Duster getting some respect. Cars like this immaculately restored 1972 Duster 340 were really the last of the true performance cars before a long, dark winter of emissions regs, and guys today have definitely learned to respect these compact bruisers.
Kudos to Chrysler for keeping their way-out colors and aggressive, almost over-the-top decal packages long after the big motors were put out to pasture. If you wanted a fast car in 1972, you could scarcely do better than this Duster in its original form, and the original owner loaded it up with slick B5 Blue paint, and the Duster 340 decals that were the muscle car's last gasp. Given a comprehensive professional restoration. The paint has an impossible shine that looks like a million bucks. That aggressive front grille and limited bright work look equally fantastic, and all the chrome was polished up to look new, get a load of those shiny bumpers. There's no sneaking around in this car, but you'll be proud to be noticed, that's for sure!
The high-back bucket seat interior is a rare option for these cars, as they were still economy-minded machines. Everything inside is like new: the upholstery on the seats and door panels, the dash, the plush carpets, and even the headliner, suggesting that someone thought this was a very special car from Day One that needed to be done the right way. There's a tall shifter in between the buckets that's ready to be put in drive for a long cruise, and there's nothing like an original steering wheel to grip when you're out cruising. The stock instruments are still crisp and clear. An upgraded AM/FM radio has been installed in the dash and other than a heater/defroster and seatbelts, luxury options are scarce. This was a car meant for driving, not lounging in.
The biggest thrill for the Mopar was stuffing a high-winding 408 cubic inch small block stroker into a lightweight car like the Duster, and this car still packs a punch! Hoses, clamps, and other hardware is in good condition. It's backed by a quick-shifting, 727 3-speed automatic transmission, so it's the ultimate point-and-shoot machine in traffic, while out back there's 3.23 gears, according to the builder. Factory 14-inch Rallyes look right at home and complete the killer look.
Beautifully restored, this is an investment-grade Duster 340 that can be driven on the street or shown with the utmost pride. The fact that you'll be grinning like an escaped convict while you do it is only icing on the cake. Call today!
