    Hi Guys - I've been away from the old Mopar action for a while. Last week I stumbled across a 71 340 Duster last week that I just HAD TO BUY. Many of you guys will remember the article in Hemmings Muscle Machines showing the Bahama Yellow 71 on the cover doing a nice smokey burnout - well she came up for sale last week and I jumped on her. Can't wait to see it in my garage! Any one close to the Wakefield area in greater Boston?

      Nice! Love the functional hood scoop. That is probably all customized work, eh? :welcome::canada:

            Nice Duster Dave! I had a 1971 Bahama Yellow Duster 340 4 speed. I sold it and regretted it as soon as I cashed the check.
            I now have a 1972 Duster 340 4 speed. I’m happy again.
            Question; I’m looking for a shifter mounting bracket before Saturday. Can anyone help me?

              Nice to meet you - great looking car! I'm actually toying with the idea of converting mine over to a stick car - I feel it would be easier to drive with this engine.

              It's the #'s matching 340 block with a Scat 416 stroker rotating assembly with Keith Black pistons, 11.5:1 compression, 8qt milodon pan, 308 Swirl-port heads with 2.02/1.60 valves cut into them, Edelbrock single plane alum intake, 850 cfm Quick Fuel Tech carb, ceramic coated Hooker headers (w/electric cutouts), runs on 93 octane pump gas but LOVES the 110 octane race fuel, which I run most of the time. The trans is a built 727 with a manual valve body and 3,500 stall. 3:55 SureGrip (8-3/4") out back. I'm actually thinking of swapping out the automatic in favor of a 4 or 5-spd manual.

              I'd have to go thru the paperwork - it's a roller setup, but I'll need to get back to you.

                  Back in the 80's I used to work nights at Donolan's Super Market - behind the deli counter. Acton is a great town! Nice meeting you!
