Still a lot do do. Headliner install, all the glasses, weatherstrip, new bumpers, rear leaf spring etc.. Slowly but surely.

Don't you find that those A-bodies look good as a two door hardtop? Surprised Chrysler never had them that way, probably couldn't engineer a back window that would roll down. On a breezy day you might have a problem!!!
Good progress so far but isn't that a 340...if so stripe would be wrong.

I read that the Duster Program was done on a very limited budget. The curved side glass did cost a bundle, probably wasn't much left for roll down rear Windows.

Roll down windows, probably would have been a great idea. However I also doubt there was much money left after they were done with the design. To tell you the truth, the fact that they don't roll down, doesn't bother me in the least. After all I, don't sit in the back seat.

Considering that your working on two cars at the same time, I think your making great progress.

Played with the Duster lock NOS Mopar stuff but wanted same keys for my two car. Did recode cyl locks and now, the keys for Satellite will work on the Duster.

If you ever decide to sell one of the cars, the new owner would then have a set for your other car.

How large is the garage, that your working in? I'm sure you don't put one outside while working on the other.

Headliner is installed. Found an 75 year olds installer: Did that all it's life.
