1974 Plymouth Duster 318 base (Yellow Duster)

Last updated Oct 20, 2016  

Photo of a 1974 Plymouth Duster 318 base (Yellow Duster)


I found this Duster for sale in a shed in Colorado that was pretty much stripped bare, down the metal. It was a project that the previous owner lost interest. The Duster is in really good condition for its age, it only had one cancer spot about the size of a quarter, easy fix.
It came with a 318 motor but I've decided to put the 360 from the 88' ram in it instead, the 360 is going to be modified quite a bit, I'm also going to put a Torqueflite A999 (beefed up 904) from a former cop car (Dodge Diplomat) in it as well after a rebuild and shift kit installation.
This is currently a work in progress.
