A-Body Mopar Fastback History: 1970-76 Duster, Demon, & Dart Sport

As time marches on, American pony and muscle cars are becoming more scarce and valuable. The expensive part is great, so long as you already have one (or many). If, however you're on the hunt for one, that's quite another matter. The price that you're likely to pay for anything that's restorable is likely to be quite dear. You might even be tempted to tap into your kids' college funds, justifying the purchase by thinking that you can share the old car hobby with them. Thankfully, there are still some less sought-after muscle machines out there that are just waiting for some smart folks to snatch 'em up. Consider if you will these three fine A-Body Mopar models from Plymouth and Dodge: the 1970-76 Plymouth Duster, the 1971-72 Dodge Demon, and the 1973-76 Dodge Dart Sport. 

Ford Mustang History: Creating the First Pony Car

Some automotive enthusiasts are very familiar with the history of the Ford Mustang and why it has sold so well for its entire existence, dating back to its premiere in April of 1964. But most people just view the Mustang as a sporty car with a clever name. There are perhaps a baker’s dozen reasons that the Mustang was such a resounding automotive triumph right out of the starting gate, and why it continues to be the frontrunner in the hearts and souls of millions of car gals and guys.

1969 Chevy Camaro - Classic Industries' 1969 Camotion

Times are changing in hot-rodding, there's no question about it. Classic Industries, recognizing the increase in the popularity of modern suspension and drivetrain parts in muscle cars and the high-caliber quality of parts now produced by the aftermarket, set out to build a heavily modified, modernized 1969 Camaro.

1953 Chevy 3100: The Classic Industries Shop Truck

Our 1953 Chevy 3100 truck was not a typical restoration project for Classic Industries; it is a completely new vehicle built with original-style GM Truck restoration parts. Although we didn't have to deal with the notorious rust and body rot that makes trouble for most restoration projects, we did pound, bend, and stretch the new sheetmetal to fit into our plans for a custom parts hauler. Rather than hiring a professional shop to build the truck, it was built in-house by employees at Classic Industries, enthusiasts who used the skills they developed while wrenching on their own projects.

1964 Chevy Impala - Classic Industries' '64 Impala Sweet Imotion

Since 1958 GM has built a cross-market following from low-down land yachts to quarter mile winning cutters. The Impala has been a part of that diverse culture sailing through America. 1964 we saw the waning of the “Populuxe” era of jet inspired styling move toward luxury cruise ship size elegance. So, how does a restoration and performance parts supplier modernize those features some 43 years later?

1966 Chevy II / Nova - Classic Industries' '66 Innovation Nova

Classic Industries®, recognizing both the emerging desire for modern suspension and drivetrain parts in vintage cars and the high caliber of parts now produced in the aftermarket, built this heavily modified 1966 Chevy II/Nova.

1971 Plymouth 'Cuda - High Visibility

I have owned this 1971 'Cuda for nearly ten years now. After previously owning my first 'Cuda years ago, I knew I wanted to fully restore one, and I waited a long time to find this car. I felt very fortunate that I was finally able to buy the sheet metal to make it happen. It actually took over 8 years to accumulate all of the restoration parts I wanted for this project, and just over a year to get it into the shape you see here.

1970 Chevy Nova - Silver Sleeper


1967 Chevy Camaro SS Asphalt Pounder

My show and go car is a 1967 Camaro SS. She has a 383 small block Chevy stroker engine with over 600 horsepower. The powertrain includes a 671 Weiand blower with a Turbo 400 trans and a nine-inch Ford differential/rear axle.

1962 Chevy II Nova Convertible - Rollin' the Strip


1968 Chevy Camaro RS - Lady in Red

Gary Lindenmayer found this 1968 Rally Sport Camaro while working one day. He contacted the owner and shortly thereafter, purchased this classic. The car sat in his garage for about a year, and then it was sent to the body shop to have all the bondo removed. It received some fresh sheet metal, to include fenders, valances, and a hood from Classic Industries. He had the car painted and installed a 350 cid, 300 hp motor coupled to a TH350, feeding the torque to a 12-bolt rear end. Then he moved to the interior, practically replacing everything with restoration parts purchased from Classic Industries. His Camaro can been seen cruising the streets of Southern California, at least when he is not working on his next Chevy restoration.

1967 Chevy Camaro SS - 465 Horses At the Ready!

Thanks for all the information you guys have given me. Here's a picture of our car, a 1967 Camaro with a LS1, a M22 four-speed manual Muncie transmission, with the power to the road via a 3.73:1 Posi. The car is stock SS except for the engine, which is pumping about 465 HP. The car has a folding rear seat with white interior. It was bought in Canada two years ago after many hours of negotiation.

1965 Chevy Impala SS - '65 and Very Much Alive

This car started off as two cars. Cutting one apart with a blow-torch was half the fun. It took six years to rebuild this car with it's original 396 (first year in a production car). It was home built with a sandblasted and painted frame. I've recently added the 20" wheels. Check out my wife's 1957 Pickup with the Louis Vuitton accents.

1970 Chevrolet C10 - From TLC TV Show Overhaulin'

Alonzo loves his 1970 Chevy truck because of the engine inside; he built it with his late father. Overhaulin' gave it a rebuild, along with the rest of the ride. The hideout for this adventure was Classic Industries. Chris and A.J. brought the truck to Chip and the gang. This happened as Alonzo was returning home from abroad; he's a Marine Sergeant, and if that wasn't special enough, Alonzo's wife, insider Nicole, is ALSO a Marine Sergeant.
