This is a documented Duster 340. #s match, factory colors, factory options. Texas car with original metal. Comes with a stack of receipts. The owner did a great job of convincing me how dialed in he made this car. Everything functions properly, air blows cold, drives straight, runs strong.
EXTERIOR: Clean body with original metal. Vin # matched on core support and package shelf. Body is really straight everything is aligned and fits just right, doors shut like a new car. Repainted in it's original B5 bright blue. Very cool striping and black out hood treatment. Bumpers have bright chrome. The sharks tooth grill is excellent. New windshield and seal. Has factory 14 inch Rallye wheels and white letter tires.
INTERIOR: Very desirable factory bucket seat console car. Interior was removed, dynamat was installed. New carpet and Legendary upholstery. The dash area was completely restored. It has the Rallye gauges and performance indicator in the middle. New lenses and chrome bezel all the way across to the glove box, it sparkles. The original Am radio was sent out and converted to FM ($468). New 6x9 deck speakers and dash speaker ($245). The dash pad and steering wheel is mint. Open the glove box and the liner is new, has the original owner's manuals in their plastic pouch. New dash vent hoses, sunvisor tips, e-brake handle. Headliner has been replaced, interior light works and has new lens. New rear package tray and insulation. The previous owner says everything works properly, he went through it all. He even sent the vacuum gauge out to be rebuilt.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Vin # matched motor. Rebuilt performance 340 runs strong. Upgraded prestolite ignition, aluminum intake and big Holley carb (original intake included). Many new parts- dated plug wires, hood insulation, battery hold down, power steering pump, washer bottle etc. The engine bay is painted body color. Very clean metal, clean factory seams. Has the original fender tag still in place. It has the proper components such as exhaust manifolds, valve covers, air cleaner with the pie pan emblem. The air conditioning was rebuilt and updated with R-134.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Amazingly it's the original metal in the trunk- the pan and quarter panels. It's painted blue body color. Has new spare tire board, mat and jacking instructions decal. Has spare and the jack is complete and mounted properly. New weatherstrip.
UNDERSIDE: Clean original metal painted body color. Look how dry and clean the frame rails and floors are. Has vin # matched 727 Torqueflite automatic, rebuilt by previous owner, recently serviced. New 3.55 posi rear end. Front end was rebuilt. Shocks replaced. Has recent dual exhaust system with correct chrome tips. Everything is proper: e-brake hooked up, fuel & brake lines replaced, new fuel tank etc.
This is one of those good, honest cars. If you want to get in and use it, expect it to work and function properly, I think this car will deliver. It has a lot to offer- colors, documented, #s match etc. What really made me buy it was the working air conditioning. That is hard to find in a Duster 340. Overall this car has a lot to offer!
