I was wondering if anyone has a pic or can tell me what grille my 74 360 Duster is supposed to have. I thought it was just the silver one, but when I was going to get one yesterday from a friend, he said the hp 360 Dusters had black grilles. Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks for any and all help.

74 Duster 360's used the standard 73-74 duster grille.Alot of people paint(ed)them black for looks which is probably cause for the confusion.

Seth, thats what I thought too. My brother even has one that I am pretty sure is original, with a silver grille. I am questioning this because the guy I was gonna get a grille from is pretty knowledgeable about Mopars, he retired from Chrysler-Canada. He specifically said there were 360-2bbl and 360-4bbl cars. The 2bbl cars had silver grilles and the 4bbl cars had black grilles. I'm just looking for confirmation.

This is the only grille used in 74 (w/ a nod to Sox & Martin on the blue tint).

I had a 74 Duster 360 that I bought used with 34000 miles on it in 76. It appeared to be all original, and the grille and headlight bezels were basically silver like the other 74 Dusters. A strange thing though, is that in 78 I had bent a headlight bezel. I went to a dealer for a new one. The parts man said it was a different part number for a 360 Duster than the other models. It was also considerably more expensive. He did not know what the difference was. I opted to just grab a used one at the salvage yard. So bottom line is, I never actually saw the difference in them.

Silver.

I never understood the "blacked out" grill things some folks do (unless the car is black then there is some merit)
