I have owned this car for about 3 years. It was an impulse buy or a mid-life crisis,still not sure. Anyway,in the 3 years I have owned it I have put less than 500 miles on it and it has been garage kept everyday of those 3 years.The following is exactly the description that was listed when I bought it. 1974 PLYMOUTH DUSTER - 1970 340 CI.

THAT DAY WAS $2350 ! --2 NEW FRONT TIRES & ALIGNMENT-- TOTAL BRAKE JOB,WHEEL CYLINDERS,ROTORS ETC. THAT WAS $ 592 - PUT NEW DASH PAD ALSO --I HAVE ALL RECEIPTS TO PROVE ALL THE WORK. Car runs very strong. I try to take it down to the corner deli at least once a month. So when I start it, it smokes just a little then goes away. I'm assuming from sitting or maybe a leaky valve? certainly nothing I'm worried about.When I bought it the guy said it had around 15000 miles on a rebuilt engine. I'm not so sure about that, but thats what HE said.For those not familiar ,the reverse manual valve body is pretty much an automatic that you shift manually.I've also bought the fancy Duster floor mats , new rocker moldings.,can't remember all the little things! All lights and blinkers work,gas gauge reads full when you fill it but after 20 miles could read quarter tank? speedo reads 90 when your going about 50, so both those will need attention.No rust, very clean trunk and underside. I'm told it's spent it's whole life in the Carolinas! It has some little cosmetic issues, rattles here &there -- inside door handle rests need correct screws to hold them tight. I'm not a car dealer and have not sold a car on here before, antiques is my main thing. But this is my car,not selling for someone else. check my feedback and you will see I always give an excellent description! I can't really think of any thing else. buyer will be required to give $1000 deposit,non refundable within 24 hours of sale. the remainder can be discussed. But not thru paypal with the fees that would cost me! It's buyer's responsibility for picking up car or making arrangements to do so. email any questions! You will get an honest answer. I have just lost interest and want to cut my losses. I know I will never get back what I have in it,but don't want to give it away. compare this american muscle to the big names! Dusters,Novas and the like are the next wave of interest because no one can afford those hemi's or chargers etc.

US Marshal's classic muscle car auction officially in the booksThu, 25 Sep 2014
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.
Barrett-Jackson 2014: 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird passes half a million dollarsSat, 18 Jan 2014
The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?
The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.

SRT belatedly claims Plymouth Prowler as one of its ownWed, 19 Dec 2012
Before Chrysler had Street and Racing Technology, it had Performance Vehicle Operations. What the two entities have in common, before SRT became its own brand, of course, is that each was created to take Chrysler and Dodge (and Plymouth, before it was unceremoniously killed off) vehicles to the next level of style and performance.
We'll leave the question of whether or not the old Plymouth (and later Chrysler) Prowler was ultimately a stylish, performance-oriented car to you, but the boys and girls currently leading the SRT charge at the Pentastar headquarters are keen to accept the retro-rod into the fold.
According to the automaker, all of SRT's current high-performance models owe a debt of gratitude to the old Prowler, due mostly to that car's use of lightweight bits and pieces and innovative construction techniques. If nothing else, the fact that the Prowler's frame is "the largest machined automotive part in history" is pretty cool. Read all the details here.
