Description for Plymouth Duster 1970

1970 Plymouth Duster (VL29G0B233xxx) factory 318c.i. car, all numbers matching, extremely documented car, factory console automatic with bucket seats, black vinyl top, wheel lip and wide sill moldings, rear window defogger, sure grip rearend and High Impact FC7 Plum Crazy paint!!! The Duster has only 59k documented original miles and has the original fender tag and 2 perfect factory broadcast sheets (fully decoded). It also has a few added items like the Dusterhood scoops, sharkstooth grill, white side stripe and Go-Wing spoiler, factory steel wheels and dog dishes with BFG tires. The stunning high gloss Plum Crazy base/clear paint is awesome and will impress you even more in person!

The Duster was completely restored in 2008 and now I just finished a very light freshen-up and check-over on the entire car. It has been featured in Mopar Muscle magazine with complete history and story of the car as well as the cover car on the 2011 Mopar Nationals brochure. I have an issue of the magazine, the Nats brochure, tons of photos through out the restoration (even one with the original owner), decoded fender tag, original owners manual and papers in the clear plastic jacket, lots of receipts and a replica of the original window sticker!!! The Duster was bought new at Cline Chrysler in Southgate, Kentucky. I have verifiedall of the body numbers match on the radiator support, VIN tag, original door VIN decal and on the speaker shelf/trunk divider area. You must check these numbers to authenticate that it is correct.

There is a really cool detailed story with the Duster in the Mopar Muscle magazine (5 page layout). It talkes about the gentlemen that when first seen the car was able to track it down and eventually purchase it from the original owner after years of wanting it and then he completed the restoration of the car. It is a must read and an awesome story!

When doing a restoration of this caliber takes a lot of time, patience and money to be done correctly. Please understand this is not your average “driver” condition 1970 Duster! I typically restore and finish around 8 to 10 Mopars a year and have been working on them for more than 30 years. I do every one as if it were my own to keep. I put a lot of time, effort, pride and money in the cars I offer for sale which is evident when viewing one of my cars compared to others for sale. This is one of the few cars you can view in person and say that it is actually nicer than the photos.

Please call Chad at 412- 496- 1439 with any questions. Thanks!

PAINT AND BODY

The body is in excellent shape and the panels are very straight with excellent seems and panel fit. The super high-gloss deep clear coat shine was just professionally wet sanded with 3000 and 5000 grit paper to achieve the high caliber ultra shine finish. This long process alone took over 50 hours and the finish shows it! The Dusters sheet metal is believed to be mostly original as all the factory spot welds appear to be correct. The trunk floor, trunk extensions, floor boards, rockers, fenders, hood, doors and frame rails are super clean and also appear original. It has had the rear tail light panel replaced as well as the very rear section of the passenger side quarter panel. The Duster was painted in 2008 with PPG base coat/clear coat and is in unbelievable nice condition… it has that deep wet look shine and looks like it was just out of the paint booth! If you think it looks good in the photos you need to see it in person! The paint in all the door jams and engine bay looks fantastic. Even the underside of the hood and trunk lid are amazing!The doors open and close excellent with the ease of a finger and even the door latches and strikers were cleaned, polished and lubed.

PLEASECALL ME AT 412-496-1439 AND I WILL BE GLAD TO DO A COMPLETE WALK AROUND OF THE DUSTER, THANKS, CHAD.

GLASS, CHROME AND TRIM

The glass is in very good condition with only a few very minor marks. The front windshield is newer PPG glass and in excellent shape. The rest of the glass appears to be original date coded and in very nice shape. Even the rear glass is in very nice condition and only has a few very minor scratches overall it is extremely nice for factory glass. All windows and locks operate as should. The front and rear bumpers are re-chromed and look excellent! The window trim is very clean and was polished for optimum shine. Just added is a brand new sharkestooth grill!!!

INTERIOR

The interior has also been restored includind the seat covers, carpet, trunk divider, speaker shelf, interior insulation, sill plates, restored original floor console, dash cluster, door panels and arm rest pads. The dash cluster bezel is brand new but the dash and instrument cluster are still original and look excellent! All factory gauges work and operate correctly. All lighting works as should including the high/low beams, dome light, tail lights, parking lights, turn signals, four-way flashers, license plate light and even the cigar lighter works. The factory A.M. radio is also in working condition. This is one of the nicest factory dash harnesses I’ve seen. It is super clean with no burns, cuts or hacked up add-ons at all. I always check and clean the fuse box and many other wiring connections. All heater/defroster cables are working and adjusted. The E-brake, defrosters, heater, fan, horn, speedometer and dimmer switch all work as should.

DRIVE TRAIN / SUSPENSION

The Duster has it’s all original numbers matching drivtrain! The excellent running 1970 318 was freshened up and rebuilt in 2008 with a stock specs build. It still has the correct 2bbl. carb and intake along with the factory exhaust manifolds. Added on was the excellent sounding dual exhaust system with flowmaster mufflers and correct chrome Duster tips. It has very good performance, excellent cooling and idles perfect!

The original numbers matching 904 transmission was also freshened up and rebuilt in 2008 with stock specs. It shifts beautiful and is excellent for cruising!

It has the original stock leaf springs with newer shocks that work great. The rear end is the original 7 ¼ with the factory 2.76 suregrip differential. I was told is was checked over and freshened up at the time of the resto. The front suspension was completely checked over and has some newer parts like tie rods, pitman and idler arms, ball joints and upper control arm bumpers. Just added was the new Borgeson Power Steering Kit (P/S box, pump, lines and coupler). Please look at the photos closely to see the amount of detail work that was done!
