    I have a 73 340 V 21 code Duster i am in the Middle of restoring. My Hood was gone when i got the car. Some people are say that mine should have scoops on it for the performance Hood package V 21 code and there is a Part Number in the book for scoops.. But in the Sales Brochure has a * That says for Twister Only.. Is there anyone who has a Original Factory 340 with Performance hood with them on it or is it just Blacked out ?

    The codes in the V section are for paint or tape stripe codes and vinyl top and side mouldings. The scoop codes start with letter N.

    V21 is performance hood paint.

    I’m no 73 Duster expert so the answer will be good to hear.

      '73+ Dusters never had a factory scoop option. But it's a popular add-on.
      (Edit: However, the "Twister" option appears to have been available with a couple of little non-functional scoops. Not a common item.)

      BTW, Those “Twister” dual scoops are the same as 69 ‘Cuda.

      I believe the hoods were blacked out to go with those black scoops.
