Three Owners, Only 32K Miles, Nearly Everything In Excellent and Original Condition
The Winner of the 2012 Angel of Shavano Car Show
Among the many old cars at the
annual car show in Salida, Colorado, this 1972 Plymouth Duster
was the best. Everything is original! Garaged for its entire life,
this Mopar classic has only 32,660 miles. Dave Janik, the third owner,
bought it in 2003 and has worked hard with every car care and preservation detail,
so it presents itself as if it were new.
He hasn't done any customized nonsense to this beautiful car.
On this page are my photos and
a video of this golden 1972 Plymouth Duster.
Standing back, one might think this car has
received a new paint job, but what you see is the original paint!
This '72 Plymouth Duster has sentimental value for me. One of
my earliest memories of cars
was my mother driving my two brothers and I in a blue
1971 Plymouth Duster coupe. The interior was black. I'm pretty sure
the 1971 Duster model was nearly the same as the 1972 model,
with the exception of changes to the tail lights.
Maybe the Plymouth Duster models from 1971 to 1976 weren't
as popular as GM or Ford models of the era, but they had a following.
It has an attractive and sporty appearance ...
... and no doubt,
the Plymouth Duster had character all of its own. The Duster
logo had to be one of the most creative and genius things. I love
that twister guy! :)
These three photos of the interior make it look more yellow-green, but it was gold to the naked eye.
Dave is meticulous at keeping everything clean on the inside and outside.
It looks like it could be sitting brand new in a Plymouth dealership.
The third photo shows the odometer marked at 32,660 miles. That's it!
The front seats. Original interior in very good condition.
Duster floor mats.
The original wheels shined well.

What a great Duster!
