Sorry, i actually meant a picture of the engine compartment as it is today. I sent you a conversation (responded to yours)...........
Turns out that this is not the car that i thought it was, very close, but not the same......... Thank you for the e-mails and pictures.
View attachment 1714996679 The past owner of my Duster called me last week. He founds my broadcast sheet. What a find !! Kinda weird a car with so much options came with steelies and dog dish.
Wow thats pretty damn awesome....I pray for the day that happens to me. Nothing but dead ends for me finding previous owner info on my ride. Congrats to you.
Thank you, he also finds the names of the last two owners before him on bills. We find them on facebook and contact them. After that we got the name of an other past owner, but did not talk to him yet. I now have history of my car from 1990 to now.. missing 19 years of it's life. None of them had pics of the car..
My 71 Duster has the same steering wheel, but in black, no interior decor group, but front disc brakes. The two (!!!) aftermarket sun-roofs look crazy, but I have seen such things also here in Europa, mainly on Swiss cars. We had the same sun-roof-craze in the early 80s. I remember a Challenger with two sunroofs installed identically as on Your Duster. Looks kinda funny, when they are open.
I pretty don't like that sunroof.. I took it off the car and have a spare roof that I'm gonna use the roof skin to put on mine, will looks way better
Engine is almost finish. 416 stroker with stock appearence, low compression for gas pump, date-coded repro part, original restored 1971 340 thermoquad. TTI ceramic headers are coming for it.
Looks nice! Who built your engine?
Shouldn't a 71 340 have a Carter AVS carb? Thought they went to Thermoquads in 72
René Delisle in Quebec.
Mostly every 340 in 1971 had the Carter Thermoquad, that carb is really rare, it was a one year only model.
Yes, my 71 is also equipped with a Thermoquad since new, and it is a different one as I have on my 72 Demon 340.
Original paint under hood with older decals from previous owners. Restored heater motor and 3-speed wiper motor from S.F. Restoration in Québec.

TTI step ceramic headers with thermal barrier. Correct one year only 1971 340 TQ carb restored and rebuild by Scott Smith (Harms auto). Also correct DR1114429 idle selenoid restored by Stephan Fournier (S.F. Restoration) in Québec. Original 3 nipples breather with correct reproduction hoses and original restored clamps from Stephan Fournier. Nice reproduction upper radiator hose from Bill Rolik.
Sent the car to bodyshop in october to remove the aftermarket sunroof I had a donor roof for my roof job. Didnt want to put new aftermarket sheetmetal on it or patch the sunroof hole. That roof came with the car when I bought it. The job could not be better. All the spotwelds were remove from the two roofs. No sheetmetal was cut. My Duster has no longer the sunroof it had for many years ! I now need new glass waterships to put back glass.
Nice restoration, I can vouch for the drum brakes on 340 cars, I have an H code cuda', 70 model with drums. Drums suck, dump them as fast as you can, while the sheet metal is still pretty.
Thats an awesome machine. Very nice work so far
