In 1970, Plymouth could
credibly call its performance lineup “The Rapid Transit System,” and literally
had a muscle machine in every size, from the Fury GT down through the Road
Runner and GTX to the Barracuda. This momentum wasn’t lost on the new Duster
coupe. Based on the Valiant platform, its sporty new lines and various trim
levels, coupled with market-minded names like the Feather Duster, Gold Duster,
Space Duster, and Twister Duster, it was a hot selling winner for Chrysler
right from the start.
Using our recently-tooled
front grille, Auto World has replicated this 1970 Plymouth Duster in
High-Impact Vitamin C orange paint. We’ve also installed the
performance-oriented top-of-the-line 340ci V8 motor which officially produced
275hp. From the cowl forward, it may look like a Valiant, but the sweeping
semi-fastback was all Duster... and it packed a punch!
