Hemmings Find of the Day – 1970 Plymouth Duster 340

Published in

From the seller’s description:

This is a numbers matching 1970 Plymouth Valiant Duster 340. We have the original Broadcast sheet. The engine has been balanced and blueprinted; bored 40 over. Rebuilt 727 automatic transmission; bolt in sprag, deep pan and shift kit. Differential rebuilt with NOS 3.31 gear ratio and new posi unit. It has weld in frame connectors. It has factory A/C. Hoses have not been installed (the kit with hoses and fittings are part of the sale).

Body work: The restoration was done over a four year period (2005 – 2009). This involved taking the car down to a bare shell and bare metal. Factory sheetmetal was used for body repairs where necessary. Every nut and bolt was removed. Large percentage of interior and exterior pieces have been powder coated including front suspension, rear differential housing, brake backing plates, rear drums (just partial list). Car was painted original Lemon Twist Yellow with correct graphics.

After car painted sound deadener was installed on floor and roof of car.

During the Muscle Car era these cars were noted for their power, not reliability. During the restoration process stock parts were refurbished to maintain originality; some were replaced to increase performance, safety and reliability.

It is rare to find a car that has been restored with this much detail. The car has won numerous awards and it is better than the day it was built. Since the completion of the restoration it has been driven only 3200 miles.

Space does not allow to list everything that has been done. We have receipts and numerous pictures. To appreciate work done to this car, it needs to be seen and heard.

Sale includes extra parts and documentation of parts used to build car.
