Roadkill Revives a 1970 Duster

So what can an anemic 1977 motorhome 440 rated at 185 hp at the crank do with Edelbrock heads, a 25 year old recycled cam, and new intake and exhaust? You’ll be surprised. Video after the jump!

Today’s reader’s ride is Steven Mick’s 1972 Plymouth Duster. It started out as a Slant 6 car with a 904 auto and a 7.25 rear end.

Free Duster Body in California!

Save it from the scrappers! This 1973 Plymouth Duster body is free to the first person who shows up!

I have one 1973 stripped Duster body for free!!! Body includes a clear CA title, dash, both fenders, passenger door, deck lid, and a few other small parts. Body is fairly straight with some damage in the left rear quarter and trunk pan. You will get just the body, and parts not the casters it is setting on so you must have a trailer and some help to lift it onto your trailer. Body must be picked up quickly or it will go to the crusher. 

Don’t let it get crushed. It’s in San Marcos, California. Check out the ad on Craigslist!
