1974 Plymouth Duster
When the Barracuda moved up in size Plymouth decided to spend their
restyling budget on a sporty semi fastback coupe to fill the void left by
the Cuda. It was a great move as the Duster was separated enough from its
Valiant brother that buyers considered it a much more sporty and a great
value for the money. But it was the performance variations that we all
remember including the hand full of Hemi Dusters that were terrors of the
drag strip. The standard slant six was an economy leader and legendary for
reliability but it was the range of V8 power options that began with the
318 and went up to 360. But in most experts opinions it was the 340 Dusters
and its brother the Dodge Demon that were the street fighters and giant
killers. The enthusiast could order a Duster and get the performance
package with either an automatic or a 4speed behind the 340. It was the
1971 model of the duster that turned out to be the right combination of
compression and the new electronic ignition that made that year special as
in 72 Chrysler lowered the compression and made the valve size smaller to
meet emission standards.
The 71 340 also had an over the shelf Six Pack that really kicked up the
performance when installed with a set of headers.
In 1971 I was at Fort Gordon Georgia waiting to see what the fate of my
life would be, I took a trip to town and had an extended road test in an
Orange Dodge Demon 340 4 speed with a 410 gear that made for wonderful
acceleration put was definitively limited in long distance driving. The
engine was wonderful as well as the transmission. The steering and brakes
did leave much for this sports car driver to desire. Coming from some very
sporty cars it was the engine that I truly loved, and if was into drag
racing I would definitely have bought one.

1972 Plymouth Duster
This car had spent its whole life in Ohio, until we brought it up to
Michigan. It was stored in a barn for quite some time before being restored
in the early 1990's.
We purchased the car from a man who bought it in Sandusky, Ohio, two years
ago. The previous owner spruced up the car, and had it featured in Summit
Magazine, before selling it to us.

Test Driving 1969 Plymouth Road Runner 383 V8 4 BBL Four Speed
I thought you'd like a look at this 1969 Plymouth Road Runner in action.
It's powered by a 383 V8, with an Edelbrock intake, 4 BBL carb, coated
headers, and Air Grabber induction. All the power is being funneled through
a hurst shifted four-speed manual back to an 8 3/4 rear. This car runs out
strong and it's in absolutely immaculate condition. It's as clean in the
engine bay and underneath the car as it is on the outside. The interior
looks showroom new as well. This car is a proven show winner as well. I hop
you find it interesting....thanks for watching!

Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - /BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has
helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern
California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back
of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a
car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that
being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those
years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the
very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's
garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams
do come true.
