1972 Plymouth Duster 3-spd, 8-cylinder 318 Cu in. This is a fun car to drive around. Runs well, starts every time. Exhaust replaced with headers a few years ago and sounds great. "Rally" wheels shown, but will also include 4 steel wheels and original hubcaps, along with original manifolds and some other miscellaneous parts. Electronic ignition installed when the car was new. All original parts except for minor updates or repairs, original engine, transmission, drive-train, rear-end, etc. It has been slightly updated with the modern comfort of newer speakers and an auxiliary input to play music from your phone or another device, but this is all easily reversible.
All lights, gauges, wipers, heater fan, and other electronics work (AM radio has not been tested/checked in years though)
Originally purchased by my father new, I'm the second titled owner. Miscellaneous paperwork and documents included. Currently titled in Michigan with authentic historic plates (will leave on the car). This car has been stored every winter since new and is in pretty good condition. There are some areas with rust shown in the pictures, along with some paint wear from a tarp years ago, but the structure of the car is solid. The passenger compartment floor pan and underbody ("frame") appears to be in excellent condition. The trunk pan/floor has rust typical of these models.
Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions via the form on the right. Due to the high volume of "spam" "interested buyers" that this form generates, please include your location and something other than the text already in the field to help identify which inquiries are just from "bots" or real people. I am located in Michigan, and I am willing to make reasonable accommodations to work with a reputable shipper of your choice, but we will need to review/discuss these details if you plan on shipping the vehicle.
