Seems like a nice car at a reasonable price. Side moulding/stripe combo and wing would be a hard pass for me.


Earning every penny of that moderator paycheck.

70-72 Dart 2dr hardtops are easy flip candidates.

  • Still decent taken care of grandma cars out there.
  • Cheaper than Duster/Demons
  • Easy to make look performance with "bolt ons": Twin Hood Scoops, bumble-bee stripe, and maybe a spoiler
  • the 71's looks very close to the 1970 performance Swinger 340 model.
  • no need for a expensive shark tooth grill like the 71-72 Duster 340's had.
  • Can even black out hood to look like a 70 swinger to hide paint issues
  • Many are 318's and even 8 3/4 rear ends.

For me it's at least the wing. I also like the color combo and think if it's solid it's a bargain. I'd also replace valve covers with stock, paint rad black or go back to stock 26". Matte black hood and scoops would look better IMO
