Solid body withnice black paint and matte black side stripe and 318 call-outs on a straight body. The Duster only came with one side view mirror, as the passenger's side was an option. There are a couple minor chips and scratches in the paintbut nothing serious. All of thetrim has been black Plasti-Dipped but can be easily removed if its not to your liking. New dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers. New 15x7 steel wheels with 255-60-15 tires on the rear and 235-60-15 on front. The heat works perfectly. Front and rear seat covers and carpet has been replaced. Headliner is great condition. All lights and turn signals work. Original bumper jack also included with car. This is a beautiful running car. There are still minor restoration items that can be done, but it can be driven daily while you work on it.

As far as things that can/need to be fixed/replaced:

  • Needs a new windshield wiper motor (complete system there and connected just needs a newwiper motor).
  • The air conditioning unit is complete but I have not tried to use it (it would most likely need to be converted to the new freon and system checked).
  • The radio works but there are no speakers in the car (speakers would need to be installed if you want to listen to music).
  • Car could use a front end alignment.

As far as the salvage title, when the car was purchased by the previous owner the vin on the title only had 11 digits instead of 13. The vin on both the car and title were in order except for the 2 missing digits on the title. During a prior transfer the vin on the title was miss-keyed at the department of motor vehicles. This was verified and corrected through the State Police (they did a VIN verification on the car and title to make sure it was clean before they fixed the vin on the title). The Vin on the title was then fixedbut they changed the title status to salvage.
