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.

1970 Plymouth Duster 440 Gateway Classic Cars Orlando
For sale in our Orlando showroom is a 1970 Plymouth Duster 440. The Duster was introduced in late 69 as a 1970 model. Basically a rebranded Valiant the new Duster was really made up of what was laying around if you will. Maybe that’s why it has become such a great platform to build some of the most serious 1/4 mile cars in history. Our particular 440 Duster is equipped with all the right equipment to make it down the track in record time. One look at the outrageous Vitamin C paint job and matching cage, you know this Duster means business. Backing up this mean look is an equally impressive 440 big block with an 88mm turbo hanging off the front. Backed by the legendary torqueflight 727 this duster makes it down the strip in no time at all. Even with all of the go fast goodies and seemingly endless supply of horsepower, she's really not as unmanageable going down the road as one would expect. Yes the 727 has a shift kit and stout stall converter but does not bang through the gears just cruising down the road and the shift rpms are kept to a reasonable level. This is definitely a standout Duster that will garnish some serious attention.

The car was owned by a grandma who owned it since brand new. She kept the car in her garage its entire life underneath a few bed sheets to keep the dust off. The odometer showed only 22k Original Miles when she sold it. The Hemi Drivetrain was added in the mid 1990's. The builder then wanted a different look, so he took everything apart and did a rotisserie restoration on the car and painted it the Sublime Green Color it is today. To say he started with a pristine car is an understatement. This beast has many small mods to enhance its overall appearance. Not only is it wicked fast, but also turns heads everywhere it goes. It now has just 23,929 miles. This Hemi Duster has been magazine featured, don't miss your chance to own one of the baddest Mopars on the planet!
