For Sale: 1974 Plymouth Duster in Greene, Iowa

Vehicle Description

Take a look at this 1974 Plymouth Duster! Now, this is something we don't see too often, especially with this Duster's dual-snorkel hood! This Duster is unique for a couple of reasons, another being that all power options work, including air conditioning and the factory AM radio! The Duster's 1974 model year, of which this car is an example, was to be the Duster's best selling year. Based on the base Plymouth Valiant, the Duster was intended to present a sporty styling to attract customers more than the bland Valiant could. It definitely worked! Plymouth sold over 280,000 Dusters for the 1974 model year. This Duster is powered by the largest engine offered for 1974, a 360 C.I. V8 that breathes through a 4-barrel carburetor. That power gets to the rear wheels through a 3-speed column-shifted automatic transmission that provides great acceleration. The golden paint shines beautifully over a laser-straight body, accenting this car's factory "Gold Duster" decals. The interior is in great shape and comes with some incredibly comfortable tan bench seats. This golden Duster comes equipped with a functional dual-snorkel hood, a working AM radio, power steering, power front disc brakes, a rear spoiler, a tachometer, working A/C, and a great-sounding dual exhaust system. The car rides on some great-looking Cragar SS wheels on top of some Cooper Cobra Radial GT RWL tires. This Duster runs and drives even better than it looks, and is sure to look "Golden" in anyone's driveway!
