Not only does this 1971 Plymouth Duster 340 have its
numbers-matching V8, but also it was given the right investment to
be one of the most accurate classics around. So you'll love
everything from the rumble of the exhaust to the nostalgia of the
working AM radio.
Dusters always have a heightened desirability that comes from
aggressive design. They carry the Coke-bottle curves that we love
to see in other legendary Mopars like the 'Cuda. And the big blocky
front end looks like it wants to push traffic out of the way with
its shining chrome bumper. Best of all, this one revels in being a
bold coupe. We have the factory buildsheet, and it looks like this
was a factory Tor-Red car. So this desirable Mopar High Impact
color was returned to this Duster only a few years ago, and it
continues to look bright today. This paint also knows how to
showcase the darker aggressive pieces, like the blacked-out hood,
side stripes with 340 callouts, sporty rear panel. Plus, there are
more great classic performance pieces, like the hood pins, wide
dual exhaust tips, and Mopar Rallye wheels for a complete muscle
The interior is stylish, comfy, and quite vintage. It's an inviting
atmosphere where the dash is smooth, the carpeting is plush, the
headliner looks good, and the upholstery has an attractive style
with the gray inserts. There's a real eye for vintage style right
down to details, including the wood-like trim and working AM radio.
In fact, the only upgrade you may spot is the tach neatly mounted
under the dash. It reminds you this is a driver's car just as much
as the high-back bucket seats, center console, floor shift, and
Mopar Tuff steering wheel.
When you pop the hood, you'll find out that the big callout didn't
lie. It's a 340 cubic-inch V8, and this is even the
numbers-matching unit. It keeps a very vintage and honest style for
your first impression, right down to the orange block paint. But if
you dig a little deeper, you discover some worthwhile investments.
The V8 inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. And
we have a receipt showing nearly $1,500 spent a few months ago on a
very correct-style dual exhaust. Plus, there's a three-speed
automatic transmission, power steering, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and
front disc brakes to keep this a solid anytime cruiser.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and factory
buildsheet. This Duster is a great representation of one of the
best eras in American power motoring. Call today!!!
