If you are looking for a rare Duster, this is a good one. It is a factory 340 4-speed Duster with the numbers matching motor and transmission that has never been out of the car. The car only has 83k original miles and still has the original carb, exhause manifolds, air cleaner and even the starter motor and master cylinder. The motor runs very good and the transmission shifts smooth.
There is some light rust on the lower part of the car, but the body is stock and original. The whole care only has 83k original miles. The car came from the factory with 3:91 rear axle ratio, but somewhere down the line it was swapped out for 3:23 gears for driving. It still has the proper 8 3/4 rear end housing.
The factory manual disk brakes are in working condition, as is the factory manual steering. No power assisting here.
The car is a factory FJ5 lime green car with side and rear stripes. The rally gauges with tach came with the car from the factory, and they still work. The radiator is also original to the car. The factory front bench seat was upgraded to a correct 70 bucket seats with a new restored covers
The glass is also original and in very good condition. The factory original rubber floor matt with steel kick panels is also with the car. The headliner is coming apart at a couple of the seams. The door panels have speaker holes in the front and the dash pad has a few cracks. The steering wheel is very nice and original with no cracks. Unfortunately the car was in an accident in the early 1970’s that resulted in some damage to the front end that was not fixed correctly. This will need some inner fender work and the front of the frame will also need some work.
The grill is very nice and also original with no breaks. All of the lights work but it will need a turn signal harness for the blinkers. There is a lot of the original paint in many areas on the car with one repaint on the outside body. The trunk is very solid with no holes.
This is a turn key car that runs and drives around the block, or you can spend a weekend and put it on the road for good. Also an excellent candidate for a full restoration if you desired.
UPDATE – We went ahead and did a nice cosmetic cleanup of the gauges that included replacing the gauge faces, new panel and glove box trim, new glove box, new turn signal harness, and a new dash pad. We also fixed the reverse lock out linkage so that all the lights and gauges are properly working now.
Are you looking for a rare project car that has had a majority of the hard work completed? Check out this 1970 Lime Green Road Runner that is extremely solid and has already had tens of thousands of dollars invested. This is a factory 383cid with manual 4-speed that came in the ever popular lime green color. The bucket seats have been freshly recovered with Legendary seat covers and the console has also been restored to new condition.
The car came with the Rally gauge package including a tic-toc-tach as well as power disk brakes and 3:23 rear-end with posi. The numbers matching motor and transmission were rebuilt, though the rebuild happened about 20 years ago and we would recommend a tear down to check everything before putting it back in the car. It has been stored and everything turns freely, but since its already out, it would be advisable to just double check. The car also includes a new power booster and master cylinder for the all new disk brake setup.
The front end has also been completely rebuilt and powder coated to the proper and correct color and a new clutch was a part of the work already completed. The front grill is original and complete and what we would call “mint!”. The car has very nice original front fenders, hood and doors. The quarter panels are also original, though they had been repaired back in the 1970s. We do have new AMD quarters and trunk pan available if desired. All of the glass is new ECS date coded glass and will finish off the car nicely. This is an original California car and has never been rusty and is ready for the next owner to complete and love.
This is a factory original 1973 Plymouth Cuda 340. It has been sitting since the early 1980’s and as such has only driven 91k original miles. The car includes the number matching motor and transmission, which in this case is an automatic. This car is 95% original. The motor will not run as it is froze up and needs a complete rebuild. There is also some rust in the trunk (see the pictures) and a small amount on the floor. Though the underside of the car is beautiful and the quarter panels are very nice. It is easy to see the condition of the body because the car still has the original paint on it.
The sunroof and the wheels were added around 1980 and look the part for a cool survivor hot rod. This is a real Cuda and they are becoming very scarce, especially survivor cars like this one. It is a good optioned car with everything still present and accounted for. You could put another drive train in it and go cruising as a survivor
This car will be sold whole, please no buyers only looking for parts.
What a rare find! This is a factory original GTX convertible that we found in California with a solid no rust California body. In fact, the exterior of this car still wears its original paint and the car has only 76k original miles! The interior of the car has been restored along with a new top. The gauges and lights are all operational and working well.
The 440cid motor is the numbers matching motor and has been rebuilt and running great. The carburetor is a new Edlebrock carb, but the original carb is included. The car still has the original starter and alternator as well. Unfortunately the automatic transmission is not the original trans but it has been rebuilt and working great. The front end has been completely rebuilt along with the steering box.
The rear end sports the original 3:23 ratio gears with posi-traction. The original jack and components are still in the trunk and all of the glass is original, even the front windshield which is in nice condition. The original AM/FM radio is in very good condition, but is not working, nor is the Heater and A/C controls as the plastic vacuum control is broken. Other than those items, everything else is working.
This is an excellent driving car and extremely original (Just look at the pictures!) Of course, there are some bumps and bruises but we wanted to leave it original so everyone could see the condition of the body. There were only 700 convertible GTXs built in 1969 and only 365 of them were automatics.
This 1970 barracuda car has spent its entire life in California and still has the original blue California plates from 1970. It is a desert car and as a result it is very solid with no rust spots anywhere. The care does have new paint that is not a show paint job but more in line with driver quality.
The driver side quarter panel does has some bondo due to a side swipe from years ago. There are also a few other small spots here and there but there is nothing major. The floor and trunk pan are solid and clean with only light surface rust on bottom side.
The seat covers on the rear seat are original and very brittle. The front seat covers are also brittle and we would recommend that they be recovered. The dash pad has many cracks and either needs a cap, a cover or be replaced with a new one. The front grill is new and fits very nice. The glass on the car is all good and original. The bumpers are original and are very nice cores for a re-chrome or you can buy new ones.
This Barracuda was an original 6 cylinder car with 3-speed stick, but there is no drive train now so it is perfect and ready for an upgrade. We do have a motor available upon request and to make life even easier for you, there is also a V8 K-member that comes with the car and it is even already powder coated.
This is a very good builder car that you can build to your own taste.

We bring another progress page to you! This time it is a 1967 Satellite that we found for a customer and are now doing a restoration. It is an original blue car with two town white and blue interior. It should look sharp!
28 Jan 2020 Update – We have been hard at work on the restoration of this 67 Satellite. The car is now painted, under coat has been applied, the paint is color sanded, and the interior is getting ready. Still lots to do…but the two tone Satellite paint looks gorgeous.
Car continues to move along nicely with the paint work all wrapped up and the car coming back together. We have the rear glass in and working on all the other parts as well.
Front end is now complete and looking amazing, as is the two tone interior, just the way it came from the factory.
This is a 1971 Plymouth Satellite with 318 cid and automatic transmission. It is an original California car and we have the title in hand and ready to go. The paint and interior are original, except for the driver side fender that was fixed and primed. The car has been in storage for 30 years and we are not sure if it runs. We bought the car in 2002 as a running car but we never tried to get it on the road. It still has the original blue and yellow California plates. The car does have some good options including cruise control and A/C. It also has power steering and power brakes, but are non-disk.
The car has a small 7 1/4 rear end. The good news is that there is very little rust in this car, even the trunk is solid as a rock. The small amount of rust is contained to the passenger side lower as can be seen in the pictures. It also has a nice set of rally’s with good tires mounted on them. The steering wheel is mint, which it also impressive. The interior is all there but will need to be replaced due to the desert heat out here. It also has the upgraded roadrunner hood that is in great shape.
Over all it is a great car to put back on the road with an easy restoration or maybe just polish the paint and use the car. Glass is also all in great shape, even the front windshield.
There are some items that are missing:
Upper windshield stainless trim
Clutch and fan
Front marker light (but getting a set soon)
Valve cover breather
Lower center plastic grill (we found one)
