1970 Duster production information
« on: May 08, 2019, 11:22:11 AM »
I am starting this topic because I recently bought a 1970 Plymouth Duster after selling my 1972 Challenger. I wanted a change. I recently picked up a fully restored Duster in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It is currently scheduled to be shipped to me later this month. In another topic @6bblgt said he had some production numbers for 1970 Dusters and I am obviously interested in seeing what he has!

But first, mine is:

Code Description

VS29
V = Plymouth Valiant / Duster
S = Special
29 = 2 Door Sports Hardtop
H0B
H = 340 275HP 1-4BBL 8 CYL
0 = 1970
B = Dodge Main, Hamtramck, MI, USA
sequence number

E55 340 - 4 Barrel (6 - Barrel w/ A53 Code)
D21 Heavy Duty 4-Speed Manual Transmission
FC7  Paint Code: Plum Crazy Purple / In-Violet Irid

D2X9  Trim Grade/Style/Color
D = Deluxe
2 = Vinyl Bench
X9 = Black

TX9 Upper Door Frame: Black / Black Velvet
B24 Date Built: 11 / 24 / 1969
C09828 Order Number: C09828
V1W Roof Type OR Color:  Full Vinyl Top - White
A62 A-body Decor Package
G33 Left Hand Outside Mirror - Manual / Chrome
M21 Roof Drip Rail Moldings
N41 Duel Exhaust w/o Tips
R11 Music Master Radio AM
V6X Black Longitude Sports Stripe
V8X Transverse Stripe - Black
Y07 Built to Canada Specifications
EN2 End of Codes Assembly Line 2

The car is restored to the tag with the exception of the bench seat. It comes on the side, buckets installed.

I will for sure post up some pictures. It has the original engine but it's a 416 stroker now. Also a 3.55 sure grip car. This bad girl should fly.

the 1970 340 Duster numbers I have are based on 21,799 shipped to US destinations
87.8% of the 24,817 total production (total built to Canada spec. < 3,018)

15.6% - 3-speed (~3,401)
33.9% - 4-speed (~7,390)
50.5% - automatic (~11,008)

8.7% - FC7 "in-violet metallic" (~1,897) - tied for 3rd most popular (w/FE5 "rallye red") behind #1 EB5 "blue fire metallic" & #2 FY1 "lemon twist"

I'll get to more of it later Ö..

I have a soft spot for those A bodies.
Friend with 74 Dart Sport 360 sure grip is what cemented my Mopar love.
Life is to be viewed thru the windshield. Not rear view mirror.
You are the only one in charge of your destiny.

I was looking at the triple black folding roof car for sale in Macon Georgia but with exchange to CAD it was too much. There was also some questions about itís authenticity so I decided for that kind of cash I rather walk away. Super cool option. Have you got a picture of your old one?

It does not have a build sheet unfortunately. The guy who I bought it from has owned the car 43 years and never kept it. It really has no cool options as it was bought to be raced. It does have original rallies. That is likely the only option beyond those listed on the fender tag.

Of course I am sticking around! I may not have an e-body but I have not come across a better car forum. When you think about it most of the driveline of my Duster is the same info as an e-body. Plus there are many mopar savvy people on here! I will still rock my e-bodies.com shirt at car shows.

And yes the hood is going back to stock. You can see the hood in the background that comes with the car.
