really depends on what is in it and the "history" of it. I have seen one sell (about two months ago) for 1550 and it was in good shape but had a 6cly in it and last summer my brother sold his "wreck" for 8500!!! but it had a Hemi (running bad) in it. SO what is in it? and is it original? any mods?

dont expect much for it,unless like casper said HEMI.they were a so-so car in the 70,s but not a sought after car today.the one above (no offence)500.00 at best.


i sold my 70 340 duster about 2 years ago for close to 9grand, it was an original 340 car but had a race 360 in it roll bar, slick, spool, i could barely drive it on the street it was heavily modified in the drivetrain but the exterior was stock looking, i put on 1/4 panels and rockers and painted original fk5 adark burnt orange metalic it looked good and ran really hard but it was no show car.. if the car you are pricing is a totally stock 6 cyl car and there is minimul rust and all the trim parts are good you could get upward of 2 grand.. if it an original 340 car and its drivable i would bet you could get 4-5grand if not in to bad of shape. if its restored you can get likely over 10 grand depending on the restoration effort... look on ebay and get a better idea of whats out there.


i payed 800 and it is a good car that needed little work


My '70 Duster with a 318 V-8, A-904 automatic, 7-1/4" rear with 2.76:1 gears was about $3000 when my dad bought it in 2007. The body (and chassis metal) is in great shape except for the dent on the rear pass. 1/4 panel and the cracked/fading paint. The engine was in OK shape, I think the timing chain skipped a tooth or two and messed up the valve timing as it had NO power above 3500 RPM and the low-end torque wasn't as strong as it should've been. It also has power steering (I've upgraded to a Firm Feel Stage 2 box), manual front disc brakes (the pre-'73 four-piston Kelsey-Hayes ones), and air conditioning, which is no longer operational. I think it was worth closer to $2500 but that's just after I tore everything apart and got a good look inside the engine.


Nowadays the money seems to be in things like solidness (no rust) as much as anything. Engine options are nice, but unless you're trying to build up a show car, what was originally on the VIN tag doesn't seem to matter as much. I'm a hotrodder, not a collector, so that's just my take. As far as cash value? I think any 70 that can stand on it's own two wheels and has a decently solid body will go for at least a $1000, more depending on engine and condition. Also remember that there's an oddly large difference between slant six and v8 cars, since you have to replace the k frame (piece of metal the engine sits on) to put a V8 in a slant six car, while all V8s will bolt in.


not quite sure but i put a bout 4 g's into mine with loans from the grandpa and father

I've looked on ebay and other places on the net and your talking in the thousands at least. All plymouths and dodges go for quite a bit these days even sans motor and transmission. I've found some cheap ones but they need WORK. Rotted floorboards, trunks etc.
