Plymouth Duster 340 and Dodge Demon 340
My 1974 Plymouth Duster 340 and Gene's 1972 Dodge Demon 340 having a little
fun! We decided to take the cars out and not go all out on them but have a
little fun, LOL!
1969 Dart GTS 340 Burn Out
A burnout video as promised. Here is a big thanks to all the folks at
http://www.forabodiesonly.com/ who helped me turn a trailer of parts into
this restored 1969 Dart GTS. Those were some sticky Mickey's after that.
Loadng the Dart
Dad gets to have some fun! We took the Dart to a car show this afternoon
and loaded it up in the street in front of our house.
68 Dart 340 4 Speed Run
My 1968 Dart after I transformed it from a slant 6 auto to a car with a
1968 340 that I built myself, 4 speed manual trans., and an 8.75, with 3:91
ratio limited slip diff. In the beginning, the first car you see pass by
is a COP! I waited a few seconds for him to get down the road a ways
before I took off. Sorry about the poor sound quality from the camera.

It doesn't take long for car guys to put two and two together. Chrysler may
have intended their compact fleet to be inexpensive grocery getters but,
thanks to their smaller proportions and relatively light weight, the hot
rodding possibilities just couldn't be ignored. This 1972 Demon 340 is one
of the A-bodies that Dodge sent out with some factory heat between the
fenders - A true H-code car that retains its original 340ci V8 and
Torqueflite automatic transmission.
Thanks to a frame up restoration, the car looks showroom fresh. A sleek
coat of TX9 black graces the sheet metal topped by white side stripes and a
flat black hood decal. It's an ominous look and correct for the car
according to the trim tag. From the plainspoken grille to the bright white
taillight panel with its cartoon Demon, everything is in place and ready
for the show field.
The HEMI and 440 Six Pack were both off the option list by 1972 but that
didn't mean the fun was over. The high-winding 340 was finally getting its
time to shine, producing a solid 240 net horsepower in an era when
even top option Corvettes were falling short of the 300hp mark. Lift this
Demon's hood to find the original 340ci V8, authenticated by its casting
number, casting date, and matching VIN derivative. From the Carter
ThermoQuad carburetor to the electronic ignition, the engine compartment
shows with authority.
Behind that 340, the original 727 Torqueflite automatic takes care of
shifting, channeling power back to an 8.75-inch rear end. The torsion bar
front and leaf spring rear suspension are both in place, aided through
corners by factory power steering and hydraulic drum brakes. At the
corners, industrial looking 14-inch steel wheels wear black paint, dog dish
hubcaps, and a set of Goodyear Polyglas F70-14s to finish off that vintage
Pop open the doors on this Demon and you'll be greeted by a restored black
vinyl interior. Given the A-bodies low-budget positioning, there aren't a
ton of options visible but the combination of bucket seats, a
stainless-trimmed center console, and plenty of wood grain applique
certainly give the space an upscale feel. Entertainment is provided by an
original Music Master AM radio.
Regardless if you're a diehard Mopar A-body fan or just a muscle car novice
look for an affordable way to get into the hobby, this Demon is a great
choice. Of the nearly 40,000 Demons produced for '72, only 8.700 of them
carried the 340 and, with its original drivetrain still in place, this one
a perfect example to show off. If you're ready to put a Demon in your lair,
