For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/93sygp3 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! Much more impressive than when it originally rolled down Chrysler's storied assembly lines this slick Plymouth coupe has been transformed into a take-no-prisoners street warrior that consistently knocks people out at cruise nights. You won't be staying under the radar with its professionally finished Bluefire Metallic and white paintwork, which has been applied over a very clean body. There are no signs of wholesale panel replacement, suggesting this was a straight, rust-free car before its metamorphosis. And overall, the car is so well done that many unsuspecting bystanders will be fooled into thinking this is how it rolled right out of the showroom. If you're going to talk the talk, you'd better be ready to walk the walk. A flashy muscle car without guts is about as appealing as a firecracker without gun powder or a gallon of sweet tea without sugar. Fortunately the power-hungry gearheads at our own RKM Performance Center have ensured this Duster will never miss a beat by completely rebuilding, and fully tuning, its hot 340 cubic inch V8. At the top of the car's light blue block a Weber 4-barrel carburetor funnels wind from a chrome, open element air cleaner into a high quality Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake manifold. At the sides of that intake, attractive aluminum valve covers cap original 340 heads and free-flowing full length headers. Behind those valve covers, sparks are sequences from an MSD Blaster II coil to MSD Street Fire plug wires via a traditional points distributor. In front of those plug wires fresh V-belts spin a large chrome alternator above a leak-free power steering pump. And in front of that alternator a heavy duty Chrysler radiator circulates water through new rubber hoses. This Duster's clean engine bay is a nice combination of form and function featuring a reproduction Mopar green cap battery, an authentic Chrysler washer fluid tank, a fresh brake Booster and a rebuilt 2-speed wiper motor. And everything from the car's fenders to its firewall is coated in the same excellent looking Bluefire Metallic paint as its glossy exterior panels. In the late 60s and early 70s, if you were a true Mopar guy, the only transmission you wanted was a factory-issued A833 4-speed; and the 23 spline unit in this bright compact is tough enough for the track and smooth enough for the parkway! Naturally that high performance engine and transmission combination feeds a fully sorted front torsion bar and rear leaf suspension that's shackled to a correct power steering system and a rugged factory rear end. Cool and confident stops are provided by power discs up front and power drums out back. Exhaust flows down the center of the car through true dual pipes that run to perennially mean Flowmaster dual chamber mufflers and traditional stainless tips. And at the corners of those floors, traditional 15 inch Cragar S/S wheels spin 235/65 front and 235/70 rear Firestone Indy 500 tires around fresh chrome lug nuts. According to this Plymouth's original fender tag it was factory-equipped with a conservative black interior. But, if you're like me and prefer your muscle cars flashy, you'll definitely appreciate the contrast of its blue paint and retrofitted white seats. Speaking of seats, this car's benches are firm to the touch and feature pliable white covers that show very little weathering. In front of those seats, a chrome Hurst pistol grip shifter is perfectly positioned for quick burnouts and swift gear rotation. The car's warp-free, padded dash hangs Plymouths trademark square speedometer and an old school Chrysler Solid State AM radio in a broad swath of wood applique. At the sides of the seats, pleated door panels hang bright chrome hardware between blue door frames, straight stainless trim, unique "DUSTER" emblems and stain-free armrests. And in front of the driver, a simple black steering wheel spins a large diameter rim around a small Sunpro oil pressure gauge. There's just no way you could build something like this yourself and not significantly overshoot our $34K price.
