duster 1971

Post by philcollins on Tue Jan 27, 2015 6:53 pm

Picture of my Duster i bought last year in Gatineau Québec. New paint, mostly complete but missing a lot of small part. Had a 318 in it

The front suspension was a mess, K member was bent and 2x4 between the lca and the frame were holding the suspension. Drum brake were trash...

I remember when your car was on Kijiji, for sale. I always thought it would make a nice project for someone to finish. Love the colour it makes the car pop. So your 71 will have seats out of a 72 while my 72 has seats out of a 71. lol.

Hope so. My car is 900 kms away, in my brother garage. So i don't work on it very often. It will change this summer, i plan to build a garage next to our home.

Bought some parts in Vegas last week-end. Reproduction battery cables, weatherstrip etc. And the TTI exaust is on transit.

Where is Caraquet N.B. and What part of this great country is your car in ? 900 kms, that's quite a hike.

Caraquet is in the north eastern corner of N.B., by the shore and 900 KM should put the car somewhere around Montreal...I think.
