The colors really make this 1971 Duster 340 stand out. It is also a factory air conditioned car with buckets and a console. This car decodes exactly as it sits. It was born with these fantastic colors and options right down to the stripes and chrome exhaust tips. Has original build sheet. #s match motor and trans. 1 owner from 1997-2017. 44,628 miles was branded as actual on the title in 1997. *We just spent $1800 rebuilding the rally gauges, added a factory vacuum gauge. Brakes were redone and a front end alignment.
EXTERIOR: Outstanding fit and finish. The body is in excellent condition. Both sides are completely straight, all the panels fit really square and flush. I don't see any bubbles or damage of any sort. It is repainted it's factory Tor Red color. Polished out to a smooth and glossy finish, much better than the factory put out. Also has the blacked out hood treatment with the bold 340 Wedge logo. Has the duster stripes down the sides and Duster decal on the tail panel. Also has a black vinyl top which looks new. Has sport mirrors. Upfront the grill is restored, bumper has been rechromed. Has the correct antenna. All the stainless trim around the windows is polished and straight, door handles look new. In back the bumper is rechromed, all the glass is in very nice shape and fits right. New windshield. Door jambs have been repainted and weather strips were replaced. Has rallye wheels with BFGoodrich tires.
INTERIOR: I think inside is the main attraction. How often do you see an orange interior? It really looks great, especially with the exterior. Also rare in a Duster is factory bucket seats and console. Looking at the dash it has the factory gauge cluster, the chrome bezels look like they're new. Nothing is cut, broken or beat up. It still has the factory AM radio. Steering wheel is in excellent shape, the dash pad has been replaced, new glovebox liner. Seats are very good, door panels are excellent, carpet has been replaced. Dome light works, the mirror, visors and headliner are excellent. There are some wrinkles in the rear sail panels.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Has original vin # match 340 engine. These are very spunky, desirable motors. Google the 340 hp motor, all the talk is good. The previous owner says it's been rebuilt. Has a dual feed Holley carb otherwise all stock including manifolds, valve covers, air cleaner etc. It is a rare factory air conditioned car. The a/c is not complete, it does have a rebuilt compressor. The alternator looks new. The engine bay is real nice clean metal, all painted glossy like the exterior. Has a Mopar radiator and correct shroud.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Completely clean metal. The quarter panels look like they are originals, I don't see any splices. It's all been sprayed the exterior color. New grey plaid mat. Bottom of the trunk lid and jamb are real glossy and has a new weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: Components look real good. Bottom of the motor and the trans are clean. Starter looks new. Has a new dual exhaust system with the chrome tips. In back the gas tank and shocks look new. Has 3.23 rear end. In front the steering components look good, has recent shocks and swaybar bushings. Has disc brakes in front. Bottom of the car is real solid.
