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.
1970 plymouth duster I named HELLRIDER as a tribute to heavy metal and 70's
prostock drag racing.
SLANT 6 Mopar or No Car!
Mopars and very attractive women.....Mopars Kicking ASS! What more can you
If you like what you hear, come and visit me at CDBaby!
In case anyone is curious, yes, I've owned tons of Mopar products! There
is a SRT4 in my driveway right now. I've had Coronet R/T's, Challenger RT,
Demon's, 300's, SRT8's, I love em all! And I have no problem with other
cool Musclecars. I even own a Buick with a V6 that is fairly
quick......However....I loves me Mother Mopar!
I'm back in the old school! I have a "NEW" 70 Coronet R/T! Burnt
Orange/White interior numbers matching, bla bla bla bla!!! Will post pics
of it in my new Mopar song. Yeah, I'm doing another one, yeah I'm corny!
Actually 2 tunes. One, I penned back in the mid 80's called Red Light. It
was about my 69 R/T.

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.
