Love it!

I remember the commercial- I think it was for batteries. It had sounds of expensive cars cranking over but not starting, then an announcer described all the battery's features, then along came the $50 Duster, which fired right up.

Thanks Chuck ! I was trying to find it on You tube ,but couldn't .

Now that's pretty cool Pat !  Beautiful (?) job of weathering .  I like the little details like the quarter windows .

 

I had one just like that ( with no engine ) sitting in my driveway one summer ,  but I paid $75 for it !  :D

Thanks Bob !

Pat, I really like your Duster.  You did a great job on weathering and that Viper chassis under it brings a smile when I see it there.  It seems to belong there.  It's nothing you did but, I am surprised the Viper underpinnings didn't bring the car down to the ground further.  Good thing they didn't or that would have ruined the look you were going for.

Thanks Ken !I mounted the body as high as I could on the frame and I slid the rear wheels down on the uprights to get the rear up higher .


Look amazing!

I love it when a bunch of parts come together to build something great!!

Thanks Ken !

Great details...weathering, concept, AND the open rear wing window. Fond memories of the one my family had, a dark green '71 Gold Duster with the Slant 6.

Thank you Andy !

I sure would love to see a step by step for your weathering process. It's probably the best I've seen.

Thanks Scott ! I will try to do that .

Very very cool weathering job on that Duster. I love the choice of replaced panels and the quarter windows too. 

 

The summer of 1977 I had the opportunity to buy a 1976 Duster from a girl I knew who had bought it new and got overwhelmed with the payments.  It was silver with a red bucket interior, console and red pin stripes.  Remember, that was back when the Ford Granada had every car copying the silver and red theme.  Slant six auto car with air conditioning. Low miles and $1500 would get her out of trouble. Of course I didn't have the $1500 and my father vetoed it!

Thanks Tom ! I used to have a '76 Super Silver Addition Duster , silver with a red black and white stripe, red interior , and a Moon Roof .


Very nicely done!

Thank You Lee !
