Vinny's 1972 Duster 340
This is my 1972 Plymouth Duster 340 which me and my Dad purchased in 2014 from Clifton Park, NY. This Duster had not been registered since 1980, Originally a Lemon Twist 340 with Vinyl Top and a 727 Torquflite. Unfortunately, the 340 was not with the car when we purchased it. My Dad and I have worked on every inch of the car, making it what it is today. With everything else being mechanically sound and running very well, I wanted something which would be more exciting to drive as well as be a better cruiser. We decided our most recent upgrade needed to be the Tremec TKO 5 Speed.
The car is now in Curious Yellow with the Vinyl Top deleted. It has a cam’d 360 Magnum effortlessly mated to a Tremec 5 Speed using Silver Sport’s Perfect Fit Kit. The rear end is a 3:55 Sure Grip Differential and the engine turns just over 2,000 RPM cruising at 65. This Duster runs and drives amazingly smooth, the Clutch feels great and shifts are very positive. My car still retains a very stock look but feels tight, just like a brand new car. I highly recommend getting yourself a Tremec!
It was a pleasure to do business with you and the staff at Silver Sport Transmissions. Everyone there has made this large purchase painless and right on target. I couldn't be happier with my TKO and the kit you sent with it. Everything fit together perfectly. It has performed well above my expectations. My car performs excellent, smooth - no complaints!
