71 Duster just crossed tonight 24g`s they never showed much except for the hideous job someone did installing the 340 wedge decal on the hood. Whoever did that needs to get back to flipping burgers

It needed some TLC. The 340 wedge sticker on the hood had some very large air bubbles in it. Pretty sure it was an original 6 cylinder car as well.

You are absolutely right JG. But I think if it had been presented better, it would have probably brought more money.

Seems like the Mopar muscle doesn`t get the love but if you are selling a Camaro or Chevelle its money city. 68 Roadrunner went for 33 and the following Chev clone went way higher. I watch this stop to start, for me its a car show the money isnt really an indication of anything other than well lubed(alcohol)bidders either spending their kids inheritance or kids spending their new found wealth. Alot of the cars that went yesterday and today can`t be built for what they are getting so.......... i don`t know about back east but out here body and paint is 20 grand before you turn a bolt so 30 US is not bad. Watch the Super Bee coming tomorrow lot 839

The fact that the Mopars, aren't getting any respect, is no surprise.

When I got mine painted (12 1/2 years ago) I got a real good deal, now a days the same thing is 5-10 grand and any fancy paint well the price goes up. A person could get a fairly good paint job for somewhere around 12 grand...I think and if the painter is a good acquaintance then you never know.

I paid $10 grand, plus to pain my Duster 4 years ago. It didn't require any patch work, but about 2 weeks of prep work. I believe its a very nice paint job, but nothing spectacular. Not many regular body shops want to even look at these old cars, because they are afraid of whats under the old paint. And that's why resto shops charge so much.

Some guy on Facebook is at Barrett Jackson, and he looked at this Duster. This was his opinion.

Mike Krueger  I am here and checked out that 71 ... the guy had wrinkled and bubbled decals on it ! Did not wash up under the hood etc. Paint chips and bad paint in general. I don't understand how it went for that.

First day of the Auction is supposed to be the affordable cars, so people on a budget can get into the hobby. They do advertise “( something for everyone). At least this is all that I can figure as to how it was allowed through.
