1973 Plymouth Duster

Description:

This 1973 Plymouth Duster is what you get when you take a mild-mannered A-body and give it a serious dose of horsepower. Finished in bright red paint with appropriate stripes, this slick compact now carries a snarling 408 inch stroker motor and a high-profile personality that refuses to be ignored.

Originally, this car was just a bland commuter special, anonymous in its factory blah paint. But since it was straight and clean, someone saw the potential in it, so a few years ago, it was treated to a fresh coat of FE5 red paint. No longer a shrinking violet, this slick Duster was just getting started, so they added Duster stripes with '340' callouts on the flanks, just in case anyone wasn't paying attention. Workmanship is pretty good, with doors that close solidly (quite unlike an affordable commuter car) and a very impressive shine to the glossy urethane paint. There are chrome bumpers at either end, just to keep it looking mostly stock, and you have to admit that it looks great from any angle. It's not perfect, but if you want perfect you're probably not shopping for an affordable Duster and this one is obviously about function more than form anyway.

The handsome interior wears bright white seat covers, door panels, and carpets, all of which appear to be either original or older reproduction pieces. It's actually very sophisticated for an affordable car and comfortable enough to spend all day behind the wheel. The dashboard offers a complete array of gauges with their round pods echoing the Rallye gauges of the past, along with a big tach and auxiliary gauges underneath. It's likely that the back seat is also original, and if that's the case, this is one amazingly well-preserved car, so it's easy to see how the builder saw the potential in it. The original AM radio was supplanted by an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit, which feeds big speakers on the rear deck. The trunk is incredibly spacious for what was originally a ""compact"" car, and it includes a correct mat.

This car was no slouch, as it's a real 340 car, but today there's a seriously potent 408 cubic inch stroker motor between the fenders. Based on a 360 block, it's big block torque in a small block package, so the Duster's handling is preserved intact. The smooth-running small block offers instantaneous throttle response and a great mid-range punch, which makes it a lot of fun to drive. A Demon carburetor on an Edelbrock Performer RPM, MSD ignition system, and aluminum heads build big power to make this Duster a serious threat. Long-tube headers help build torque and feed an aggressive-sounding dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers and cut-outs, so it's able to deliver the sound you prefer. The A904 3-speed automatic transmission seems to read your mind when you stomp the loud pedal, dropping down a gear to let the 408 get into the meaty part of the power band, and with tallish gears in the rear end, it's seriously punchy on the street. Those handsome Weld Pro-Star aluminum wheels are a great drag race look and wear a set of Mickey Thompson drag radials out back to help this sucker hook up.

Thanks to a bunch of recent work, this is a really neat piece of Mopar muscle that was done right. With a nod to authenticity but a strong desire to attract attention, this Duster is always a lot of fun. Call today!
