  Under All That Dirt Is a Rock-Solid, Garage-Find 1972 Plymouth Duster 340 Danny Ravas knew about this Plymouth Duster, a 340 with a four-speed, 32 years ago. "It was a block away from my mother's, and I spotted it outside," he says. A Mopar enthusiast from way back, Danny inquired about buying the pint-size Plymouth muscle car, which, in 1985, would have been just 13 years old.Danny kept after the owner on and off through the years, but the answer was always no. He was building up a collection of Mopar muscle, and this Duster was one of his first acquisitions. "He had hopes of restoring it someday," Danny says.

"I saw the car in the back of a shop, just covered up. I thought, Man, if that guy decides he isn't going to finish that car, let me know."

Three Reasons Why: This Is the Best Restored Mustang Ever

  Three Reasons Why: This Is the Best Restored Mustang Ever By all odds, there is not a finer restored Ford Mustang than this 1970 Boss 429, and for three main reasons; the first being a starting point of just 1,608 original miles. Reason No. 1's importance, originality, matches Bob Perkins' restoration philosophy of the last 37 years, which he summed up, off the cuff, as we talked about the undercarriage of this car. He said, "The best cars, when they're done, were the better cars to start with.

Jeff Clark has a regular job. On the weekends and some evenings and days off, he restores muscle cars. "Some assembly required" does not bother him, especially when the car is a 1970 'Cuda that came from the factory with a V code, for the 440 Six Pack. Clark wanted to buy the 'Cuda, but it wasn't for sale, so he left his name and phone number.

"Raymond Douglas' uncle [not the owner] had the old 'Cuda in his shop in Kansas. The restoration had stalled out. That was three, four, or five years ago."

Clark, who lives in Pampa, Texas, wasn't sure of the exact year he and Douglas drove north to Kansas, or what that trip was about, but the phone call he got in February of 2018 made a big impression. Douglas' uncle had died, and the family decided to sell the 'Cuda. The car had to come out of the uncle's shop. They hammered out a price on the phone. The deal was made.

Douglas owns his own paint and body shop in Pampa, and has built many different cars, including street rods, classic Mustangs, and muscle cars. Why didn't he buy the 'Cuda? He and Clark are car friends. Clark "showed an interest." Douglas "thought about it," and then "kind of backed out."

Clark says, "We made a trip back up there about three or four weekends later, and took a trailer and gathered everything up."

With the deal, Clark got a photo scrapbook of the car and stories from the deceased's brother, Tony. The deceased, George, had not been a typical owner. He had his own paint and body shop, and when he purchased the 'Cuda "in 1970 or 1971," he put a special paint job on the car with a Spirit of '76 theme. This made sense during the years around the nation's bicentennial. The car caught national attention at shows. Street Machine magazine ran a two-page feature on the car. Clark showed us a weathered copy of that issue he got with the 'Cuda.

Clark pointed out a side stripe with Christopher Columbus' three ships sailing on the ocean. An 8x10 photo in the scrapbook showed Spirit of '76 graphics on the car's hood, roof, and decklid.

The odometer reads 15,044, which Clark says Tony told him "had not rolled over." Clark says the 'Cuda "had been parked most its life," but he has "zero documentation to prove" the mileage.
