    It's seen one or two Canadian winters and I've seen a lot worse up here. What color is that? Has the passengers side quarter already been replaced already? Keep the pics coming!

    Memike: Scamps never came with a 340; only a 6 or 318 from the factory for its production run.

    those are both 71 quarters. 1/4's. the only NOS 1/4's i could find at the time. and as far as the engine is concerned, it was a 318, however it was swapped to a 340 (72 date coded) in late 1972 @ midway chrysler where the car was purchased on a warranty job. documented so thats how i'm doing the resto. I will post more pics as i go along in the resto. thanks.

    Since everyone is commenting on the different year stuff on '72 340 Scamp's Scamp I have a question. I just bought a '72 Scamp and it has 4 tail lights not two like '72 340's. I also bought a '70 Dart & '71 Dart 4drs from the same guy. The '70 Dart is 100% original and has the same taillights as '72 340's Scamp and the '71 Dart has the tail lights like my Scamp with the four. Which is the correct taillights for the '72 Scamp? I realized that his car is Canadian and can have different versions for different countrys. I know Mopar, GM and Ford had these differances. What would be correct for the US? I actually like the style '72 340 has on his car.

    Sorry for the highjack.

    '72 340 that color looks like the "corporate" blue that people call "Petty" blue. Do you know the paint code?

    It seems then that someone has changed the bumper on my car, cool because like I said before I like the style of your guys' and wanted to change it but hate when someone mentions at a show or cruise that something is not correct. So now I can be correct and have the bumper I want... how did that happen?

    I forgot this earlier, Welcome 72 340 Scamp!
