This could be something interesting for 2014...

NMNA, but I'd snag it if I had the stuff for it.

I like the look of those dusters, but I think $1800 is crack pipe priced for a rusty 6 cyl auto car .

He's quite optimistic on that price.

I almost posted that last night along side the '53 dodge flatbed.....CL has gone nuts with old things in my area.

It's not that rusty by northern standards, but yes, a bit high on price for what it is.

I paid $35 for a '71 Duster that was in about that shape...In 1981...

I bet it has no floors. If my 1987 Dodge lost it's floors, there's no way that 1974 Duster has them. I didn't see any clear shots of the floor pan.

And that price is crack pipe high. That's your regular ol' Al Bundy-esque Mopar A-Body there, and about $1k too high on the price.

Looking at the way it sits up front, I'd be taking a very hard look at the upper control arm mounts. A-bodies can rust out in that area, and the car will gain an aggressive lowered stance when there isn't anything anchoring the upper control arm, and the lower is resting on the bump stop.

Not anymore, that's a deal even if it is a rusty POS with a /6.....

I've never seen the UCA mounts go bad, but the torsion bar mounts will go in a heartbeat on an A-body.

Here is one for less $$, and might be in better shape

Our '67 Barracuda convertible had the upper mounts on the driver's side rot off. Along with the upper part of the frame rail.

I've been the torsion bar anchors rot out too. The convertible's were surprisingly good.

Saw that the other night on the Craig's. Did you buy it yet? Might make you feel better about the SAAB.
