Real H code'd 1970 Plymouth Duster 340 cui with automatic trans in its factory original FC7 Plumcrazy paint with original style white vinyl top and white interior. Just a stunning and desirable combination and a rare car in its option and color combinations !.
Its a correct and original H code car, and all the body numbers, vin codes and original cowl tag's still in all the correct places. This car is completely and very correctly restored and the complete original engine was also rebuild and it comes with its original transmission but is now equipped with a better and upgraded TCI transmission.
Everything on this car is factory correct to its fender tag, with the only changed feature being that it now has white side stripes but on the tag it states that should be black, an easy fix if you wanted that change. Its also very nicely optioned as you can see in the below option list. But otherwise everything on this great car is it left the factory.
At the end of 1969, Plymouth introduced a new A body platform car design with the Plymouth Duster. A real sleek and lightweight type sporty looking coupe / fastback car with a name that was, at the time, derived from a cartoon character ( as so many Plymouth cars had at the time) called the Tasmanian Devil. However, Warner bros, owner of that name couldn't come in agreement with Plymouth / Chrysler over the terms to use that name so it was decided to make there own hence the Duster name was born. And the designers created their own character, a swirl similar to the Tasmanian Devil in flight. In years to follow many other famous names were used for the car such as Twister, Gold Duster, Silver Duster and than some. The name Duster became one of the most famous car names of that era.
The were all available with either a straight six Cilinder engine, or a as a V8 model equipped with a 318 cui V8.
The real hidden gem of all these Duster models was there Performance H coded car that was equipped with the famous 340 cui 4bbl intake and carb engine, hooked up to either Chryslers famous and strong TF727 transmission or a manual 4 speed gearbox.
This 340 engine, also sometimes called a mini-Hemi, was a super strong and fast engine. It was a perfect combination of a small and lightweight block with the right bore x stroke and enough room for a larger camshaft and special performance heads. one of the best performance V8s ever built by Chrysler; rated by the factory at 275 horsepower, some say it had an easy 330-350HP. With the 340, the Duster could easily beat the Nova 350 and its Ford mustang 351 equivalent, and even go after some of the big-block cars.
And with some very easy tweeking and tuning and some open breathing headers and exhaust system the were even more close to 375HP easy. The 340 is up until today, one of the best Small block engine designs ever made it just loves to Rev and also has a great power to wait ratio in many cars.
This Duster, being a real deal H coded 340 is one of the best combinations you could want if true muscle car experience or feel is what you are looking for. These Duster handled and drove great and besides the fact that the were still very comfortable and had a pretty spacey interior, could hold its own against any of the other brands muscle cars. With its uni-body design these cars were stiff and solid and the front torsion bar type of suspension was also a great feature back than.
With its very lively color combination, its white vinyl top and clean and bright looking white interior, this car also really stands out and is a true 70's car as that was period in time when cars still could be striking in colors and buyers really wanted there cars to stand out and have a great appearance . Step inside this car and it will really take you back in time !.
Its just a laser straight and rustfree body and car with a great deep shining correct paint job, tons of new parts and great chrome, glass and trim and a freshly restored the interior with its high back bucket seats, optional great looking rally dash, and vibrant colors is a feast to drive and enjoy. The engine bay is also super clean and correct as is the underside and the rest of the car. The aluminum radiator is to be seen as a bonus to prevent overheating but on request we can also install an original version.
Lots of money was spend during its restoration and the drive line alone costs more than 25k to have it rebuild correctly and in good condition and all in all we estimate that more than 60k was spend in restoration costs alone and that's without buying the actual car itself. And it being very original and correct, with its original drive line still in place, makes it very desirable indeed and a great investment for you money, as for driving and enjoying it. There is no work needed on this car, its all done and of the best quality.
