I used to have the 71 and 72 Duster  kits. The only differences I remember were dashes, tail lights and dated bumpers.

Kinda curious about those 6-slot wheels. The only 1:1 6-slots that I know of were made by American Dragmaster (different company than American Racing), but I've never seen them reproduced in scale. If the ones in the Duster kit are accurate versions of Dragmasters, they'd be good candidates for one of the resin casters to start repopping.

 

Robert....I am virtually certain that these 6-hole wheels first appeared in the old MPC Chris Lang Malco "Super Vett" kit (circa 1970-73), and then reappeared in one of the many subsequent "Street Machine-esque" variations of this kit that MPC churned out during the latter 1970's and 1980's.  Hope that helps....TIM

bumpers, tail lights, side markers and interior patterns were different between the 2 kits ( I have both)

You have a pic if the actual wheels?

 

Sorry for the delay.  Newbie had to figure out how to post pics.

 

I have no idea if these are the wheels in the 75 Duster kit, but these are what I was referencing.  They're fairly oddball, definitely don't see them much anymore.  In addition to being used on some gassers and street musclecars, they were actually somewhat popular on VWs back in the day.
