AMT 1971 Duster Street Machine


Recommended Posts

Having a builder's block with one of my other projects, so I decided to start this. Going for a Pro-Touring look with it.

Rear wheel wells didn't allow my choice wheels and tires to go where I planned, as far as the stance I envision. So first order of business is to make some mini-tubs. Final stance isn't planned to be as low as the photo shows, but it shows how much more clearance the mini-tubs provide.

Been a couple weeks since having any time for this. Realized I will have to relocate the leaf springs, considering the wider tires. So I cut out the trunk floor to make room. May end up opening the trunk too, haven't decided yet.20220307_191454.thumb.jpg.38fe92681dd1066829cbae3fa76f3383.jpg

Made some progress on my '71 Duster street machine today. Made something resembling a fuel cell and battery mount areas in the trunk floor. Engine has plug wires. Had to take some creative liberty as to where the wires go, because the coil packs on this engine are so small. Coming along.
