AMT '71 Dusters

I've seen the Street Machine version of this kit, but it appears to have a Viper V-10 engine. Yet I keep seeing the "Mopar" cast valve covers for the 340 on several models, and everybody refers to them as being from the "Duster Street Machine" kit. Were there two different non-stock versions of the kit, or do I have something mixed up? Which one has the Mopar Performance valve covers?

Cool- thanks! All the street machine versions I've seen had "Viper V-10" listed on the box. (You know- that time in the late 1990's when AMT started getting vauge with descriptions on the box :lol: ? Yeah...) This info will help quite a bit!

The Duster Street Machine kit has a Viper-style intake and the aforementioned Mopar cast valve covers sans the Mopar logos. Confusing this issue even more is the Walmart "checkerboard" version of this kit that featured an MPC 1972 Duster with a Viper V10 engine on the boxart! :DB):lol:

Hey Chuck, I'm not far from you, 'bout 20 minutes north in Shepherd.

I built a Duster several years ago to replicate a guy's Duster from Ithaca. Back in the late 70s we used to cruise Alma and he had this car back then. I called him after I did it and he was shocked that I had almost all of it correct just from my memory of the car.

I go through Shepherd quite a bit, ever heard of Jerry Harris? I've bought quite a few old kits off him!
