Introduced as a sporty variant of the compact Plymouth Valiant, the Plymouth Duster was intended to be a low-cost, high-power alternative to many of Detroit's best and more expensive muscle cars of the early 1970s. This 1973 Duster stays true to its formula of performance, style, and affordability, with a beastly heart underneath the hood and a custom transmission to back it up. Powered by a built 340 C.I. V8 breathing through a 4-barrel carburetor, this Plymouth's engine means business. Stock .....
worked rods and a shaved and peened stock crank, all balanced to perfection, each ensure smooth operation and maximum power delivery. These upgrades are enhanced further with a Crane forged aluminum roller rocker, Smith Bros pushrods, and a Holley Strip Dominator intake that's been Mach ported to ensure that this engine breathes fire with each revolution. A ground-up Crane camshaft sits in this Duster's block, boasting a lift of 467-494 and a duration of 272. With a block that's been line bored, decked, and thoroughly cleaned, this engine has been optimized for performance at every turn. Impressively, it's been tested to spin up to 8200 rpm without missing a beat, showcasing its impressive ability to rev! Torque from that fire-breathing 340 V8 is put to the pavement through a custom "904" automatic transmission with a "Turbo-Action" valve body, this Duster delivers power with precision and authority. A distinctive fastback design, characterized by laser-straight aerodynamic lines and a semi-notchback roof is the main attraction to this Duster's style. And, with its stunning red paint and complimenting black accenting, this Duster is sure to turn heads wherever it goes. Stepping inside this Duster's twin doors reveals a gorgeous black vinyl interior with high-back bucket seats, which are very comfy and perfect for long-distance cruising. The car rides on an awesome set of 15" chrome Weld wheels wrapped with blackwall tires for a stunningly muscular look! Other options on this mean '73 Plymouth include a dual snorkel hood, a massive Sport Comp tachometer, an aluminum radiator, MSD ignition, and a mean-sounding dual exhaust system. But this Duster isn't just about looks and power; it's a joy to drive, running and driving down the road like a dream. From its rumbling engine to its sleek exterior and comfortable interior, this 1973 Plymouth Duster is a real screamer, so don't let it pass you by!
