Nice. Post a photo.

The 340 is one of the best engines ever made by MOPAR. It was conservatively rated at 275 hp, but NHRA factored it up to 325 hp. MOPAR was slick, it took the hp reading at 5,000 rpm, instead of the 6,000 rpm. redline. It was known as the giant killer at the track.

My neighbor recently bought a 72 duster but when I saw it for the first time from the side (had a rear spoiler) I though "you lucky SOB...you scored a demon". 340 is definitely a BA motor but I always thought it should have been stroked for the Demon model.

Yeah, I'm not so lucky. I'm in the process of restoring mine. Quarters are welded on and a long way to go!

Right when I first started driving in about 78 or 79 my Grampa passed away and he had a 72 Duster that sat in the garage and never was hardly ever driven. I had a bunch of cash saved up and offered it to my Grandma for the Duster (she never drove or had a licence) but she wouldn't sell it to me. She said selling to anyone in the family would just cause problems, man I wanted that car so bad!

I know how you feel.

My great uncle had a shotgun and my aunt has/had (who knows at this point) in storage and I offered to buy it off her and she asked me what I needed a gun for...

She's very anti-gun, but it kinda annoyed me that it probably ended up being turned into the police and destroyed.

:bash:

Back to the current Demon. I woke up and put on Fox Bus. News. Like every other day and just MISSED, but saw later.
A segment where their reporter was at a drag strip in the car on a lane.......BY HIMSELF. He's talking and saying ok I'm going to heat the tires now. Then starts and goes at the slowest imaginable speed. Foot to floor no doubt. Smoke everywhere, then loses it about half way down the track. Started sliding right and left then off to the wall. He got out of it and luckily it stopped. Second time he went straight but DID apply the brake about half way. Hahahaha!
"What did he say that was????" Stuart says.
