The Duster 340 has a special status in the Mopar marketplace as one of the rarest and most purpose built performance cars to come out of Plymouth Division's Rapid Transit lineup in 1971. Rotisserie restored with absolutely no expense spared and aside from radial tires this Duster is as close as you can get to owning a showroom new 71 Duster short of inventing a time machine.






1970 was a transitional year for the Valiant in terms of style and performance and established the Duster 340 as a bona fide performance car icon. America's first low price Supercar, the H Code 340 Duster checks all of the requisite performance car boxes and yet for all of its 0-60 muscle is a near every day driveable street package. Some of  the performance options for this particular Duster include;  Specialized 340 Wedge engine, Rallye dash, electronic ignition, quick ratio steering, Suregrip axle, performance hood treatment, front Disc brakes, Rallye suspension with front sway bar, Go-Wing and hood tie down pins.






One re-paint in it's factory issue Code GW-3 Sno White Poly, every angle of this Duster has been brought back to the point of show quality courtesy of a PPG Base/Clear finish that looks pristine right through to the undercarraige floors. Triple plate chrome, new boar grain vinyl top, restored to new exterior stainless and perfect  glass finalize an exterior package that looks nothing short of phenominal.



This is an April/30 1971 built, sequence number 366350, Hamtramck plant Duster that is one of 6,213 340 Duster automatics built in 1971 that has spent it's life between California and Casa Grande Arizona and true to form still wears most of its original Hamtramck issue sheet metal. As well this is a turn-key, drives like a dream, collector owned car that is currently housed in a climate controlled showroom and comes with receipts for restoration work completed.

By 1971 Plymouth Division made the necessary refinements to make the Duster 340 interior one of the best layouts of the era. Show quality restored back to it's factory issue L6X9 (Black vinyl Bucket seats) by way of Year One, this interior looks as good as it did the day it left the Hamtramck gates in 1971 with everything functional and in perfect working order right down to it's original pushbutton Music Master AM radio.









The Premium fuel 340 wedge was built stricty as a street performance engine that featured; high lift cam, 10.25:1 compression, windage tray, J heads and specialized pistons that brought 275HP and 340 ft lbs of torque to the party. This engine has been professionaly re-built accurate to it's original 71 275HP specifications with everything sitting in an absolutely immaculate engine bay. Although not the original 340 for the car, this is a May/71 date coded H Code 340 with every other aspect of this drivetrain original to the car from it's Torqueflite transmission right back to it's Suregrip axle.
