That particular duster was a true california metal.Original build down to color,interior etc for the exception of the 340 and a 3.23 sure grip.Drove like a dream but had a hot start problem.I was completely stupid and traded for a 84 vette.I then sold the vette to my brother.My other 73 duster was a true 340-4 speed.Brown with the white stripe and white interior.I will have to dig up that pic.
