For Sale: 1970 Plymouth Duster in Morgantown, Pennsylvania

Vehicle Description

1970 Plymouth Duster 340

The Duster, Chrysler's sporty competitor for the Chevy Nova and Ford Maverick, resulted from the Plymouth division's desire to use allotted 1970 restyling money for something more exciting than their usual two and four-door Valiants. If you're a hardcore Mopar fan who wants a smoking hot A-body to cruise around in and shred tires with, you've found your next car!

For consignment, a fully restored Duster 340. This is a turnkey car for a Mopar fanatic who wants to get into the muscle car game for a very reasonable price. Yellow with black stripes will attract lots of eyeballs, and the combination of a recently rebuilt 360ci V8 stroked to a 408, a double pumper carburetor, original rally gauge interior, and snappy wheels, this car is a looker and a cooker!

Exterior
This car bathed in yellow for the Plymouth appears in overall very nice condition. Sculpted body panels, which add an unmistakable 70s flavor to the car's vintage design. Between those marker lights, bold "DUSTER" fender and belt line striping that runs the length and undulates with the body styling. In the end it has a 340 badge also in black. A dual scooped hood is on in contrasting black and has some horizontal yellow peeking through the black small stripes that seem to fade as they run toward the windshield and form a V pattern. At the back of the car, a yellow valence hangs a just off centered "DUSTER 340" script between broad horizontal tail lights, a second original yellow bumper and traditional blackened stainless exhaust tips. A black spoiler resides at the edge of the trunk deck just above. 17 inch XXR wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped in 4th week of 2018 rubber.

Interior
Swinging the doors reveals pure 70's design with some tuck and roll black vinyl in the center, black smooth molded plastic for the sills, and a vertical panel of wood applique framed in chrome. Shiny knobs and a mirror joystick along with the actuator which is in front of the armrest in shiny black vinyl. Sleek bolster less high back buckets with no headrest delineation but they are nice and high. These have vertical stitched panels for the inserts which run right to the edge of the buckets. A rear bench is seen behind and all seats are firm to the touch and show very little wear. A center console also of sleek thin design is in black and has some chrome trimmings in the edges which frame a wood applique in the center. An ashtray and shifter is within the console and it runs under the dash where it thins. Fairly clean and non faded black carpeting floods the floors throughout. A wood veneer dash houses near perfect gauges, the round speedo which goes up to 150mph, tachometer and another round gauge cluster to drivers right. This veneer inset stretches just past the radio which is aftermarket and has AM/FM/CD capabilities. A new in 2022 upper padded dash is very clean, and no cracks are seen. Lastly the headliner is pretty much showroom condition. The trunk presents with a very nice liner, and totally new paint and rust free.

Drivetrain
A recently built non original 360ci has been stroked to a consignor stated 408ci V8 sits in a beautiful engine bay. It is presented with a red/orange painted block and intake and has black cast ribbed valve coverings as well as the air cleaner. It is fed fossils and air by a Quickfuel 750 double pumper carburetor. On the back is an A727 Torqueflite automatic transmission with a 2500 stall converter and reverse valve body. Turning the tires is the rear axle which has been upgraded to a 8.75 inch Sure Grip unit, with 4.10 gears and a 489 third member. New wiring and hoses have been put on throughout, and all fluids were recently flushed and freshened.

Undercarriage
Nothing but nice black undercoating on stamped steel and some framing. No rust even the surface kind is pan this undercarriage. We see new KYB shocks all around and these work with the independent torsion bar front suspension and leaf spring rear suspension. The car has been lowered 3 inches and has superstock rear leaf springs. Headers and a Turbo Muffler system is clean and green, (actually silver!). Correct 2 piston caliper front disc braking is on along with refreshed with new pad drums on back.

Drive-Ability
My partner muscle car aficionado climbed in for the test drive and reported it starts quickly, runs swimmingly, and accelerates at neck snapping speed. Braking is very sufficient, and all functions were in working order. A consignor list is provided of all work recent and otherwise that has been performed on this car.

From the way back machine and we've landed in 1970 with a Duster that lives up to its name and then some. Built to "clean up", (tongue firmly in cheek), the competition and leave them in...well...your dust! Just turn the key and you're off like a prom dress.
