A good 1971 Plymouth Duster like this one was the way to get a truly fast muscle machine. Just like the Chevrolet Nova, but a lot rarer, this Mopar packed plenty of power into a compact, lightweight body. This coupe takes that history up a notch with a powerful 340 V8, and adds luxury with features like A/C. So while you might have stopped on this one just because of its High Impact paint, you're going to love digging into all the details.
Dusters always have a heighten desirability that comes from aggressive design. They carry the Coke-bottle curves that we love to see in other legendary Mopars like the 'Cuda. And the big blocky front end looks like it wants to push traffic out of the way with its shining chrome bumper. But we're willing to bet it's not the chrome that got your attention at first. Nope. That bold Sassy Grass from the legendary High Impact color palette looks amazing, and it's the perfect attention-grabber to showcase all the great details. This includes aggressive pieces like the blacked-out hood (w/hold-down pins), side stripes, 340 callouts, and large rear spoiler. And there's also great period-correct premium features like the vinyl roof and Cragar SS wheels.
The interior is both fresh and interesting. At first glance it might appear that it's nothing but a deep, dark black inside. But when people come in to check out the details, they'll notice that the seats have a cool dark green insert. This is a great driving machine with nice factory features like bucket seats, wood paneling, and a center console. Plus, you've got terrific upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. But while this has great anytime features, it was meant to be a true muscle machine. You know that from the moment you grab the iconic Mopar three-spoke sports steering wheel, which gives you a clear view of the factory speedo and tach. And the full set of auxiliary gauges is another reason your heart will be beating a bit faster even before you twist the key and hear this one roar.
When you pop the hood, you'll find out that the big callout on the hood didn't lie. It's a 340 cubic-inch V8, and it's dressed to impress. While plenty of people will marvel at the bold green engine bay, Mopar fans will love all the right decals and the Mopar Performance valve covers. The V8 inhales deeply from the Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority from the dual exhaust. But more than just being a bold and mean green machine, this one is also a thoughtful build. For example, the Champion aluminum radiator is there so you can be in traffic with the A/C pumping, and the V8 can still remain cool. Plus, there's a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes to keep this the perfect anytime cruiser.
Powerful, beautiful, and thoughtful – this Duster proves it can be easy being green. So don't miss out, call today!
