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.
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)
This is a super solid and straight Belvedere I post car from California. It has been off the road and in storage since 1991. It has a good trunk and solid floors with no rust to repair. This is a great car for a Hemi project, it is originally a slant six car with blue on blue. Clear title in hand.
This restoration project has a personal story to it from S&S. The family member that manages and takes care of all of the technology side of S&S (that’s me) has always loved all three generations of the Barracuda, but the second gen cars (1967-69) were always my favorite. When this basket case 1968 Formula S car came up for cheap (well, the end price is never cheap) at a swap meet, we jumped on it. That was a decade ago! Finally, the car has moved up the queue, after seemingly always getting pushed behind a customer car, and the restoration has now begun! The best part about the car is that it is exactly how I would have ordered a 1960s Mopar if I could have! Even the choice of colors. It is a Formula S, 340 with a 4-speed tranny. The paint is light yellow with black sport stripe and black interior. There were not many other options, though it does have power brakes, but manual steering. Perfect!
23 Jan 2019 – Tear down is just about complete and trim and bright work has been sent to the restorers.
11 June 2019 – Shell has been taken to the sand blaster. The gauges have been completely rebuilt and restored. The driveshaft has been rebuilt. All the chrome has been redone as well.
October 2019 – The shell is back and all sealed up. Lots of parts have been redone where possible and purchased new when had to.
When you have a large family and you need to haul the kids around, well, what better way to do it than in a Sport Satellite Wagon! Especially one that came from the factory with a 383-2 barrel! Only 340 383 6 passenger wagons were made in 1970 and this one has power disk brakes, a front sway bar, power steering, working A/C and even has all the original interior except for an NOS front seat. Scott is the second owner and the car only has 96k original miles and it runs and drives great! Scott’s family has a lot of fun traveling to the car shows in this wagon.
This is a cool restoration. It is an Original 1971 Cuda 440 6-Pac, 4-Speed, Dana. On top of that, the color combo is ultra cool, black paint with a black top and black interior with cloth inserts. It was also ordered with the rear window louvers and rally gauges. The car was put on a rotisserie and completely redone. It also had the numbers matching motor and transmission. The car had been in a couple of fender benders and had some rust, so we had to replace all the sheet metal with NOS metal or original metal off of donor cars, no repops on this one.
