Albany, California, United States
Engine:3.7L 3687CC 225Cu. In. l6 GAS Naturally Aspirated
Exterior Color: White
Interior Color: Blue
Number of Cylinders: 6
Drive Type: U/K
HISTORY: This 1971 Duster was in a garage for the past 12 years, and has been restored over the past 6 months. The previous owner replaced the 340 engine with a rebuilt slant 6 for fuel efficiency. In August, my mechanic did a thorough ($1,600) overhaul on major systems, electrical, carb tune, etc., and said "the only thing I can say bad about this car is that someone painted it primer white."
LOCATION: Ashland, Oregon. ABout 5 hours from San Francisco or Portland.
THE GOOD: As-is the car runs smooth. It has a lot going for it including:
-- Less than 3,000 miles on rebuilt Slant 6 engine, transmission and new carburetor. All receipts included.
-- Brand new Goodyear Tadial TA Tires ($800). Receipt/warranty included.
-- New battery with 2-year warranty
-- New brake drums, master cylinder, brake pads
-- Brand new interior carpets, rear package tray and dash
-- M-Modern brand spun aluminum polished rims
-- New trunk liner
-- New locks with extra set of keys
-- Only 75k miles on chassis, underside in good shape
-- Custom 4-pipe exhaust, sway bars. This was a hotrod in it's day. As is, it looks bad a**** and turns heads.
FIXES: If you want to continue restoration, I recommend the following:
-- Paint Job: Body is painted white gloss primer. Body has three noticeable dents (driver side at bottom, rear right quarter panel, hood). All of which can be filled before painting. They are not major. See photos.
-- Minor rust along gutter at top of driver/passenger windows. Not major, just surface rust and can be sanded in painting
-- Mechanical repairs: Steering wheel should be removed to fix horn wiring, shift linkage should be adjusted, float and needle seat in carb should be adjusted for more enrichment
-- Interior: The rear seat is original and has tears. I would recommend a seat cover. Right now it is covered with an aftermarket cloth cover.
This car is a manageable and affordable restoration project, or drivable now as-is.
Please contact me with any questions. Happy to send more photos, and while I am not a mechanic, to answer any questions you have. Buyer responsible for pickup and transportation.

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
The US Marshal's so-called Blood Muscle Auction was completed earlier this month, with the prestigious nine-car field (two cars were added following Autoblog's initial story, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 and a rare, mid-restoration 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda) finding new and hopefully law-abiding owners.
While we'd normally recap the stars of the show, in this particular auction, every car's sale was newsworthy. The full list of sale prices doesn't seem to be published, but according to The New York Times, the auction brought in a total of $2.5 million, or an average of about $277,000 per car.
The king of the contest seems to be a 1970 Plymouth Superbird (above, right), complete with a 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8, which brought home $575,000. The trio of Yenko Chevys, meanwhile, all easily cleared the six-figure mark, with the Yenko Camaro (above, far right) clearing $315,000, the Chevelle crossing the block for $237,500 and the supremely rare - one of just 37 - Yenko Nova (shown above, left) selling for an even $400,000.
We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
