1974 Plymouth Duster restoration part 1
1974 Duster bought off ebay in 2003, sight unseen. Paid $2276. Flew a friend out to San Francisco to drive it all the way back to Virginia, and the car made it with few problems (needed a radiator, tires, fuel pump). In 2007 I decided to start taking it apart to restore/modify it. Plans are to install a 408 small block/727 drivetrain.

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.

With my direction, Muscle Motors built the first E85, 871 blown small block 440 (stroked R3 race block) engine, but did not show the Dyno gauges in the video - their mistake.
I hope "Overhailin" sees this and can help!!! Chip Foose - how about an old school project????
