Up for your consideration is my '71 Plymouth Duster. I bought this car a few years ago as an original, ust free unmolested paint/interior car. The car was built in December of 1970 and sold to Mr. Willard Griffin on January 2, 971 in Alexandria, A from Colonial Chrysler-Plymouth. Willard moved to the small town of Six Mile, C, here he sold the car to Tony, ears later. Tony removed the original 225 cubic inch slant six and transformed the entire underside, rom the radiator to the rear axle, o a car that could hold its own against any big block car on the street. Mind you, ony has forgotten more than most of us will ever know about all things Mopar. The block he chose to use for the engine build was a '71 360 from a virgin Plymouth Fury, ecause of its thick block wall design (Yes, ou could get a 360 in 1971 in a C-Body!). The block was bored .030 over, alanced, ine honed and decked. The block was then filled with ARP rod bolts (beam polished), ughes flat tappet cam, rane Cams Gold race roller rocker arms, ual roller timing chain, eith Black pistons (10:1), asket matched heads, tc. The motor was topped off with Edelbrock aluminum heads and intake manifold. A Holley double pumper breaths it in and Hooker headers exhales it out. The build was five years ago at a cost of nearly $8,000.
To better handle the road, he front suspension and brakes were replaced with '73 Duster front end components, ncluding the front disc brakes. A thick Hellwig front sway bar replaced the thinner Mopar example, long with new polyurethane bushings. A Road Runner drive shaft and thicker torsion bars were also added. An Addco sway bar performance kit was added to help support the rear end. Eleven inch Road Runner heavy duty drums were added to the rear. The rear axle is a 3:55 Sure Grip. The mufflers are two chamber Flowmasters and Road Runner stainless tips. I like the oval tips, ompared to the more squared off A-body tips. I added a new bumper from Tri-City Plating. The front bumper is original and nice, river quality.
The car has never been wrecked. The only thing that needed to be addressed prior to painting was the few door dings acquired through the decades. The paint is PPG (four coats of paint, our coats of clear). It was sanded and buffed/polished. The paint job is very nice driver quality. The vinyl top has been replaced. I added the Mopar steel wheels and had them powder coated to match the paint. The caps came from one of the coolest muscle car salvage yards I've ever had the honor of traipsing through. The wheels are 15x7's. The tires are newer BFG's. The spare in the trunk is original to the car and has never been on the ground! I added a new trunk mat, s the original was falling apart.
To sum things up, his car is a very nice rust-free driver. It is an absolute blast to drive. It runs and sounds like a built big block. My wife and I have been on several long cruises with it. We just finished a 200 mile round trip last weekend. I have original paperwork on the car, ncluding three immaculate build sheets, wner's manual, arranty card and window sticker. The next owner of this cool Mopar will not be disappointed. The horn needs to be fixed. Everything else works as it should. If you want the seam on the passenger side repaired, egendary Interiors will sell the light green insert for $45. A half-way talented upholstry person can remove the seat cover and sew the new insert in. I've checked, nd it can be done for under $175, otal. The seat covers, ront and back are original. Let the pictures speak for themselves, nd please call or email if you'd like additional pictures. I included a picture of the car when I purchased it, earing it's original paint and Magnum 500's.
I reserve the right to end this auction anytime, s the car is listed locally. Please don't bid if you are not serious. Again, all with any questions at (706) 836-4410. Thanks

I received several emails on the car, o I will address them with a response to all. There is power steering. This is an original white car with green vinyl top. Tony dyed the original top black, nd I replaced this one with a black top. There was no surface rust or scale on the roof, nder the old top. The fender tag is in place. The glass is in very nice shape and original, ut I am not sure on the windshield. When we replaced the top, e removed the windshield to clean out and inspect the channels (again, o rust...not even surface rust) and replaced the molding clips while we were at it, ven though the originals were fine. There is also an MSD ignition, hich I forgot to mention. And yes, bought the car from Tony. I am the third owner, nd the car has a clear title in my name. Tony is the kind of guy you'd want to buy a muscle car from, specially a Mopar.
