If you wanted a fast car in 1972, you could scarcely do better than this Duster, and the original owner loaded it up with slick Bright Blue Metallic paint, a dual-scooped hood, and, of course, the Duster 340 decals that were the muscle car’s last gasp. Given a comprehensive professional restoration, it was freshened recently and presents today as a highly correct example. Ma Mopar wasn’t famous for quality control in 1972, so during the restoration all the production-line missteps were corrected, so the doors fit well, the hood sits flush, and the paint has an impossible shine that looks like a million bucks.
Give the uber-clean trunk a careful inspection and you’ll notice that it’s very special, and houses a correct mat that fits beautifully. The biggest bang for the buck was stuffing a high-winding 340 cubic inch small block into a lightweight car like the Duster, and this car still packs its original, numbers-matching powerplant. It’s got less than 700 miles on a full rebuild, and has been detailed for show with Hemi Orange paint on the air cleaner (which also wears reproduction decals), and Mopar turquoise engine paint.
Cars like this immaculately restored 1972 Duster 340 were really the last of the true performance cars before a long, dark winter of emissions regs, and guys today have definitely learned to respect these compact bruisers. Fully numbers-matching and finished less than 700 miles ago, it’s just about as nice as these cars get. Kudos to Chrysler for keeping their way-out colors and aggressive, almost over-the-top decal packages long after the big motors were put out to pasture.
