    Slowly taking apart the front end and taking pics of everything before pulling the engine and trans. little damage around the rad support, but nothing that can't be fixed. more pics to follow as time permits. Notice the pin missing from the pass. side hood hinge. would guess its on top of the heater box. in the last pic you can see where the rad support is pushed in from past fender bender. Bottom of drivers side, by bumper mount.

    Nah, just a /6 car. Bench seat with fold down arm rest, column shift automatic. When I got it it was just a roller, but someone had swapped in a spool type K member, BBP discs, and front sway bar. It's pretty rough though, so unfortunately it got parted.

    Few more pics of the duster, after removal of the interior. Floor pans are in good shape with a few small holes in pass. pan. Last pic is all of the mouse hotel that fell out after removing the headliner.

    hey, i am picking up a 72 340 4 speed duster on wensday, and it has a mint cardboard headliner in it, and am going to put it up for sale, along with all the other parts off the car. let em know if you need anything else!. it has no title or vin tag,a nd has benn registered as a 73. i have fender tag, which matches the speaker tray and rad support, but no vin tag, so i cannot get it legal on the road.

    No doubt that the shocks were in place when the trunk was painted. Black 340 car and also blue 318 parts car are the same.
