132209 / 1970 Plymouth Duster 340

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/d7hramu First off, yes, it's a real H-code Lemon Twist Duster 340, not a dressed up clone that came with a slant-6 or something. The other interesting thing about this particular Duster is the vast amount of money someone spent restoring it. You can see in the photos that the bodywork is straight, that the 2-stage Lemon Twist paint has been expertly applied and buffed out until it was smooth and slick, and the correct 340 decals have been applied for a true OEM look. The black vinyl top keeps it from being Lemon Twist overload, and works really well with the black stripes, Go-Wing, and hood scoops.

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.

133339 / 1933 Ford Speedstar
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/9yojclv Hot rods are all about components and pedigree. Take a good, long look at this 1933 Ford Speedstar roadster, nicknamed "Dazzler," and you'll see a pro-built rod with a ton of high-end parts and custom fabrication. Look at its pedigree, and you'll see names like Bobby Alloway and the late, great Boyd Coddington all over it. It has won shows, been featured in magazines, and is most definitely one of the most beautifully finished rods we've ever featured. And with a thumping 502 under the hood, performance is stunning, with acceleration that will pull your hair out by the roots. The custom Speedstar body is a Bobby Alloway creation, and is done in fiberglass by the pros down at Rat's Glass. A radical take on a '33 Ford roadster, it looks both retro and futuristic at the same time, and the look has proven to be extremely popular with the hot rodding community. But just because the body is in production doesn't mean that this rod is ordinary—far from it. First of all, Alloway himself built this one, and prepped the fiberglass to perfection before laying down any of the brilliant 2-stage Victory Red paint. Every step of the way, the finish was checked, sanded, and further refined so that the end result is most certainly show-winning in every way. That balanced and blueprinted 502 cubic inch big block Chevy was built by Miller Race Engines. The list of quality components in the power plant is Exhaustive, including aluminum heads and intake by Holley. The valve covers and air cleaner were flamed to match the body by the same guys who did the paint work, so the car comes together extremely well. And for long-term durability and show-quality looks, the engine block was powdercoated, not painted. Altogether, the engine bay is simple and uncluttered, looking more like industrial sculpture than a functioning automobile. The custom-built chassis is a collaboration between Alloway and Boyd Coddington. Up front is a Heidt's package that features stainless steel upper and lower control arms and chrome coil-over shocks, while out back, a custom swing-arm setup was fabricated by Alloway and Coddington, and holds a unique differential, also made by Coddington and featuring inboard disc brakes. A custom fuel tank hangs out back. The wheels are one-off custom pieces made by Coddington just for this rod, and they wear BFGoodrich radials. You can credit Paul Adkins for the stunning, show-winning interior, done entirely in lipstick red leather. The bucket seats were custom fabricated just for this car, and the overall design is simple and effective, like the rest of the car. An abbreviated console runs between them, merging into the seatbacks, and houses a shifter from Lokar. The gauges are from AutoMeter in a billet panel, giving it a retro/modern look that perfectly complements the body. High-end wool carpeting finishes out the interior design. A Sony entertainment system has been installed, and it's powerful enough to be heard at just about any speed, even above the howling big block under the hood. They don't come much more pedigreed than this one. This is most certainly not a mass-produced rod, and the awards it has won are a tribute to the artistry and craftsmanship that went into its construction. The late Boyd Coddington will sadly not be collaborating on any more projects like this, and this is an opportunity to own a part of his legacy. To put this piece of hot rodding history in your garage, all you have to do is call!
