Now, on to the stats:
- 1972 Plymouth Duster
- Currently ~29,000 original miles
- Rare and numbers matching Hipo 340 ci engine (highly desirable)
- 4 bbl Ca... Show morerter now replaced with smoother running Holley (Carter in storage)
- 275 net HP - it's widely known that was a VERY conservative rating
- Heavy duty Hurst 4-spd
- Price when new, ~$2,700 (about a dollar per pound) (try that today!)
- Limited slip now converted to true posi (in Mopar speak, it's called Sure Grip)
- Original 14" rims replaced with 15" which allows fatter tires (14" rims in storage)
- Rare "Shark Tooth" grille
- Almost no options except hipo engine/trans
- 1972 was last year for "real" muscle cars
- Engine has unique and special badging on valve cover
- 0-60 in 6.0 sec (not actually very good compared to modern technology)
- 1/4 mi in 14.1 which is exactly what Car Driver got during their testing in 1971.
- Top speed??? Well, I once pinned the needle at the 120 mark and it was still climbing fast but then I passed a cop!
- Probably only a few hundred #'s matching '72 340 Dusters still exist. Much less if you factor in same option'd cars.
New grille and front bumper in storage, soon to be replaced...
New, smoother Holley 4 bbl carb.
