BRIEF HISTORY: MOPAR was an acknowledged muscle-car leader during the 1960s. The Duster was introduced to the Plymouth line-up in 1969 (for the 1970 model year) to give their Valiant a sporty body style to attract younger performance-minded customers. It proved successful.
The Panther Pink Duster offered here, began life modestly with a green exterior (so poular in the 1960s), a tame 318 V8, and automatic transmission. Needless to say, the Panther Pink treatment – beautifully accented with the hand painted trunk art/logo – 440 Magnum and MOPAR 833 4-speed gave the car a whole new attitude. The result? It is a “show stopper” wherever it goes, and a “magnet” for admirers whenever it is shown. In fact, it gained sufficient local notoriety to attract LOCAL CAR magazine to do a full-feature on the car last year…quite an honor!
ODOMETER NOTE: The mileage indicated is not the actual mileage of the car since new…it is of modern updated electronic design and was installed following the restoration of the car.
IMPORTANT IMAGE NOTES: There are over 100 images, because we want to show you EVERY aspect of this fine classic that we can think of.
LOCATION: Gainesville, Ga...which is approx. 60 miles northeast of Atlanta.
EXCELLENT INVESTMENT – When it comes to the classic 1960s/1970s era of muscle-cars, MOPAR offerings are widely acknowledged as blue-chip investments. Some argue that Chrysler began the muscle-car category with their famed Chrysler 300 of 1955.
Also, there is a growing sentiment that the most beautiful cars of this era ended in 1972…because that was the last year that Detroit auto stylists had it “their way” with front/back bumper designs. Federal legislation began mandating those big “park bench” energy-absorbing bumper systems in 1973…and front/back car design hasn’t been the same since.
THE FIRST 12 PICTURES will give you a general overview of this one-of-a-kind 1972 Panther Pink Plymouth Duster. But if you are seriously interested...we suggest that you look at ALL 100+ images because we want you to see EVERYTHING.
OPERATIONAL REPORT: This Duster performs! The 440 Magnum (w/4BBL Carter)
and 833 4-speed are a perfect combination.
The 4-wheel (manual) discs give peace of mind in today’s stop-and-go
traffic. Power steering makes parking
easy. In sum, it is a lot of fun to
drive…not for introverts though, you WILL be noticed!
You will ride in comfort year-round with the Vintage Air A/C. Brilliantly illuminated updated gauges keep the driver informed at all times.
Special Notes: as is the case with most vintage classics, there are a few quirks. There is NO horn, and NO emergency brake. The radio is inoperative. Also, as many Magnum 440 owners know, this engine is difficult to keep cool if you drive it too hard/fast without making additional cooling modifications to the car. The current owner drives legal speeds under 70 in a non-aggressive manner. If the new owner has more ambitious performance plans, upgraded cooling will be required. There is also a small oil leak.
The car is very impressive and show-worthy. However, NO car is “perfect” so please expect to find imperfections “here and there” that are consistent with the car’s age and use. At the end of the image strip at right, you will see some examples of imperfections that you should expect.
PAYMENT TERMS: A $500 non-refundable deposit via PayPal is due immediately to hold the car for 3 business days by which time balance payment via bank to bank wire transfer or CASH (NO checks!) is due.
ABOUT ME: I am an avid Classic Car
enthusiast. After retiring from 30 years of Sales & Marketing in a
Global 100 company, I began buying and selling Classic Cars and Collectibles as
a collector and for friends and clients. This classic belongs to a fellow
classic car enthusiast.
IMPORTANT DOCUMENT & CONDITION OF SALE REMARKS: Bill of Sale and (clear) Georgia Owner Registration will be provided to the Buyer.
The state of Georgia does not require titles for vehicles built before 1986. Therefore, this 1972 Plymouth Duster was not issued a title. The Registration document is the legal document of ownership. Every state observes the DMV rules of all other states, therefore this vehicle may be insured, licensed, registered and driven in any state. Whether it is titled depends upon the DMV title rules of your state.
This Vehicle is sold strictly as-shown and on a final as-is basis without any warranties expressed or implied due to age. Even the very best restored classics will require additional maintenance and service - often without warning. Therefore, please expect to continue - as the new owner and caretaker of this classic - to perform additional maintenance and repairs. We hope that you are able to enjoy the Duster without the need for an immediate repair - but understand that this indeed could be found necessary. As seasoned collectors know, every time you start (or attempt to start) a classic vehicle is a new experience...it could be a wonderful ride, or a new repair to undertake. That is the nature of the hobby, and this classic should not be purchased if you are not prepared for this reality. We have presented the car accurately to the best of our ability, but oversights are possible. Therefore - before the auction's end - bidders are welcome to examine the vehicle in person if they are the high bidder and/or have met the reserve. All sales are final.
Because this car is only lightly driven locally - and is untested for long trips - we recommend that it be transported to its new locale.
