1973 brought several changes to the Plymouth Duster, including several redesigned parts, such as the hood, the grille, the bumpers, and the taillights.

Furthermore, Plymouth introduced an all-new package called Space Duster, which was essentially the same car but with a foldable back bench, allowing owners to increase the available space in the trunk. Additionally, the carmaker introduced a metal sunroof option while also making electronic ignition standard on the entire lineup.

And if you want to take a look at the original Duster, this 1973 model is pretty much the closest you can get because it’s said to be a survivor with just 38,000 miles (61,115 km) on the clock. Powered by a 318 (5.2L) V8 engine with 170 horsepower and paired with an automatic transmission, this Duster runs and drives just perfectly, and eBay seller travihitsma_0 explains all gauges and lights work.

The VIN confirms it’s a 2-door sports hardtop that left the factory with a 318 unit under the hood. Stored in a garage since new, the Duster certainly looks impressive, and the video embedded at the end of the article is the living proof in this regard.

Given it’s a survivor, everything is supposed to be in the original condition. However, the owner says some fixes have already been made, including a new master cylinder and a new carburetor.

Certainly, it’s a rare find, especially given the low mileage, so the success the car is already enjoying on eBay isn’t necessarily a surprise. The Plymouth Duster was listed for auction by the owner during the weekend, and it has already received no fewer than 14 bids. The highest at the time of writing set is a little over $13,500. Given it’s a no-reserve auction, whoever pays the most is free to the car home.

The vehicle is parked in Sanford, Michigan, should you want to inspect it in person before the purchase.
