    Default 1973 Plymouth Duster

    Ok guys thought I'd throw a couple of pics of one of my 2 ongoing project vehicles. The goal for this build is to run basement 10s and be a really quick street car (no street racing though). I have alot of parts already for it, but still gotta get a ton more. So anyways here's the rundown of parts:

    -360 magnum shortblock with ported 2.02 Pro Action heads
    -S372R bullseye turbo 60mm wastegate, 50mm BOV
    -A/W intercooler system
    -Full manual valvebody 727 w/transbrake
    -narrowed, back braced, spooled, 8-3/4
    -Coil over conversion for the front suspension
    -Cal tracs and mono leafs in the rear
    -15x4 and 15x10 Champion Speed Series wheels (track wheels beadlocked)
    -325/50/15 Rear Drag radials














    Those are the pics from when I first got the car. It hasn't changed much, but Its hard to find some free time to work on anything. Enjoy!

    Very nice. This should be a fun project.

    I have always been a fan of the Mopar "Lime green" paint scheme:

    In 1970 they called it "Sublime", one of their "high impact" colors.

    All mopars are expensive. Although the A-bodies seem to be still entry level for the most part. My first car was 67 Plymouth Satellite. I loved that car even though I never got to drive it. I've always wanted a duster/demon so when this one came around I jumped on it. I never was much of a fan of green till I got this car. When the body work gets completed, it's gonna be painted a key lime metallic color. So I guess the green idea has grown on me! But you know what they say about green cars...
