A good Mopar is always the best muscle car for the money. It gets
even better on a 1974 Dodge Dart Duster 360 Tribute that has been
given some good investments along the way to give it added V8 power
While Dodge had their own version of the Mopar A-Body, the Plymouth
Duster was much cooler than the Demon/Dart Sport. So this Dodge VIN
car was given a proper transformation into a Plymouth. And it's not
just the grille and badging that was upgraded. This is a full 360
tribute, and that means a ton of sporty details, like the
full-length stripe package that helps highlight the sporty
"kicked-up" rear fenders. And there's a nice dark side with the
full-width rear spoiler tinted windows, and twin scoops on display
on the hood. You have a bright shade of blue and bright chrome
bumpers for added distinction, but it never wants to be show-car
kind of fancy. After all the Weld racing wheels show off an extra
mean stance of a machine meant for the streets.
The black accents of the exterior get you ready for the clean black
interior. This is built to be a powerful car, but you'll also like
the details to make a well-rounded classic. It's in features like
the AM/FM/cassette stereo and working dome light. And this is even
set up to be an A/C car, but the belt is currently off to focus the
motor on power. In fact, you can feel that this is a muscle Mopar
from the moment you sit in the driver's bucket seat. The Grant
sport s steering wheel, fully auxiliary readouts, and Cheetah SCS
ratchet shifter are serious equipment. There's even a hood-mounted
tach for a head-up kind of display.
This earns its speedy style for what's under the hood. The 360
cubic-inch small block V8 was one of the best ways to get
displacement and power into a lightweight Dart/Duster like this.
It's built for power with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Mopar
high-rise intake, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust.
There are even good supporting components like a BeCool aluminum
radiator, an MSD ignition, and the battery moved to the trunk for
better weight distribution. The A727 TorqueFlite three-speed is a
hardy transmission, and it has a manual valve body to give you full
control over the powerful motor. You've also got traction bars and
extra-wide rear rubber to make sure the power gets to the ground.
But more than just a pure power machine. Power steering, power
brakes, and front discs are also right for a cruiser.
This is a unique Dart/Duster that has the power heart and
components you really want. So don't miss this muscle Mopar. Call
