    A few weeks ago i bought my dads Duster back that he bought brand new in late 72. He sold it over 17 years ago to a good freind who had pretty much put it in storage for the entire time. In that time i have asked sevreal times to buy it back and was always was told no, till this year. He had considered that i "slowed down enough" to buy it back. lol Factory 340 4 spd car.

    Here is how it sat for the longest time.

    Got it out and washed up this weekend and its not that bad looking for a 44 year old car.

      Just doing poly bushings all around and all new steering and ball Joints. Paid 7500 for it a little more then what my dad sold it for. Has an original 340 T/A 6 pack he put on it in the late 70s.
