    In the summer of 2008 i got a 73 duster from a friend for 1700.It had a 383 with a 4 speed and the baby 7 1/4. I drove the car all summer and took it to car shows and had a blast. But it needed lots of work so i was allways looking for somthing else .So i traded the duster for a 47 ford with flat head v8. and a 68 dodge truck . I painted the truck midnight blue and did'nt like it so painted a second time light mettalic blue Got this car and truck to just turn it so i could get another a body thats when i found the 1970 duster . Found this car at a local junk yard .In aug of 2008 didnt have money to buy at the time. So i told the guy i would be back to get it and he siad he would'nt make any promisses.So in feb 2009 i was able to sale the 47 ford to a guy for 4700 i went back to find the 70 duster was no longer there.So at that time i was on the look for an a body of some sort. So i was on craigs all the time looking when i found a 73 scamp race car the guy wanted 6000 for it .Was a really nice car that had a 340 in it. at the time i only had the 4700 from the sale of the furd. So i tryed to get the guy to sale the car with out the engine thanking i would build big block for it. well long story short he backed out at the last min.After looking on craigs for months there it was the junk yard duster i had missed out on .the guy that got it desided he had to many projects so he wanted to sale the duster so i got it from him for 800 in april 2009 and thats were the 70 duster street strip build starts later that month i was able to sale the truck for 2400View attachment my pics 464.jpg

      This shows the floor out and the frame conectors in lot easier to do the frame rails with the floor out i used a grinder on all the spot welds that were still sticking up after getting the floor out and the wire brushed all the edges and put rustoleum on everything except the places that the floor woulld weld to

        Good work your doing there. I wouldn't have thought a Kansas car would have that much rust. Good to see your saving her.:coffee2:

            I rebuilt the front end with new pst poly bushing new tube type upper control arms and 1.00 torsion bars. As you can see in the pics i had to cut out a peice of the control arm braket so that the upper control arms would not hit and i have to drill the hole bigger for the brake lines to fit from drum to disc brakes the hose end is bigger
