76 Dodge Dart… AKA 74 Plymouth Duster

Well there she is, the second car I ever owned. A 73 Plymouth Duster made from a 76 Dodge Dart. 
All in all, not a bad representation of my car except for the dodge lettering on the grill and the green being off a bit. 
I got this car when I was 17, it had a wore out 340 but the paint was fresh and the interior was clean. 
My older brother, I miss him every day, helped me pull the engine and rebuild it surprising me with the triple deuce manifold and carbs, plus the wheels and tires… that’s why I had to have the Centerlines Mike. 
I bought the hood scoop from Mr. Parts and cut the hole myself and mounted it, without ever painting the white plastic. Much to my dad’s horror, I lost my license within 9 months of it being completed. 
It’s been a fun project and for my second build back… I’m hooked. 
Off to the 68 Dart next, thanks for looking. 
Dave.

That came out pretty dang good, and it has to be satisfying to see the ol' ride again, even if only 1/25 size! Well done. I'll be following along on the Dart.

Read through this one this morning and really like all the detailing and a good back story is always good. You've got yourself a good looking car there Dave.

Thanks very much.

Wish I saw this thread earlier

Competition resins makes a 73 duster pro stock and the body will fit right onto your dart kit if you want the exact model.

Only thing missing is no side marker lights. Grill and bumpers are not chrome.

Grill and tail are correct.  I built one as a 74 w the blackout hood and grill treatment.
