There's nothing like having a unique muscle car, it's even more fun when you are that unique in the rare Mopar crowd. This restoration-fresh 1973 Plymouth Duster provides the kind of cool, and quality, that most of us just don't see too often anymore.
Take a moment to really appreciate this golden goddess. The Duster had one of the most aggressive A-body designs, and the factory-correct Golden Haze paint just highlights every curve perfectly. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that this coupe has a mountain of restoration receipts that proves how much was invested to make sure every gap is uniform, every bolt is new, and every panel is laser straight. As you continue to pour over every detail, you'll be happy to know that the Gold Duster name is not just an added fender decal. This is an original factory package car, which means the canopy vinyl roof also belongs here. If the gold wasn't enough shine for you, then the bumpers and five-star Jegs wheels add plenty of chrome to this near 24-karat car. But what we all really love is the hood. The twin-snorkel scoops are a great visual connection to some of its bigger Mopar brothers, and it adds to the overall mean-machine appearance that includes the aggressive black striping on the hood and sides.
While we enjoy all the gold on the outside, it's nice to see a race-ready black vinyl interior. This was originally a bench seat car, but it has been given a nice set of high-back buckets for all-day comfort. This coupe is not only a Gold Duster, but it's also a Space Duster, too. This was Plymouth's name for the optional fold-down rear seat. This is not only another valuable standout package, but it's also quite handy if you ever use this cherished classic for practical purposes. The owner gets a mix of factory equipment with some nice upgrades. There's a an updated three-spoke steering wheel that offers good comfort under the power steering. Beyond that, the original style dashboard offers a surprisingly complete array of gauges. The heater/defrost, and working AM radio looked just the same as they did from when this car left Detroit over four decades ago. But just below that is the new B&M shifter, which is great for everything from banging your way through the automatic transmission, to just resting your hand while cruising.
Under the hood is a freshly rebuilt 318 cubic-inch V8. Now we know that you've already noticed the 340 decals on the side of the car and on the chrome air cleaner, but all that dressing was for a good reason. This motor is only 100 miles off its rebuild, and during that time it had performance goodies added such as a 340 intake, a 600 CFM four-barrel carburetor, 340 heads, and a more aggressive camshaft. So now this motor was constructed to surpass even Plymouth's top-of-the-line 340 ci engine. The perfect complement to all these upgrades is the dual exhaust that provides the kind of rumble that lets everyone know you've arrived. But as you already know this Duster is out to be visually impressive, too. So just like the exterior, there is plenty of chrome to accent the gold engine bay, including polished valve covers, radiator, and fan shroud. Just because this all looks pristine doesn't mean you should be afraid to drive it. The automatic transmission, power brakes with discs up front, and power steering all mean this coupe is happy to tear up the streets all night long.
This is a Plymouth that will turns heads with its beauty and uniqueness. It's time for you to go for the gold. Mopar doesn't last under our showroom light long, call now!!
