My 340 Dart Swinger(1970) blew away every 340 Duster I ran against. Don't know why as both cars weighed about the same? I used to leave 396 Camaros while they were sitting at the starting line smoking away.

One of my brother's bought a new '72 340 Duster.My other brother bought a beautifully maintained '70 dark green 340 Swinger in the late 1970's. Both car's were quick. I am sure the Dart may have been a touch faster than the Duster. The Duster was rated at 240 hp vs 275 hp for the dart. In '83, I scored a '71 340 Challenger convertible. In my opinion, the 340 is one of the greatest engine's ever. I still have my Challenger. She need's restored, but I love that car. If money wasn't such an issue now, I would try and find a clean A-body 340. A '68 Barracuda S would be a dream come for me.

Duster's were so underappreciated... interiors were bare bones but nice performance for a cheap price plus a good looking car.
