Here's the info the frame is rusted out, but the engine runs good. He said he'd sell it to me so if anyone out here is interested in it let me know, if not I won't buy it.

Point of interest. A Duster is a unibody platform and has no frame, so what exactly is rusted? Still from your earlier description I wouldn't buy it except as a parts car. As for whoever said non-running rusted out Mopars go for $5k, well... Not a Duster like this. Maybe a Hemi Road Runner or a big block Challanger convertible that's been rusting away, but not a rotton old Duster with a 225.

I'm guessing the body, I will have the number of the guy tomorrow, for 125 though would you consider it worth it? I will only buy it if I expect some-kind of profit from it.

As I said, from the description it sounds like it might make a good parts car. A good running 225 is worth maybe $200 if you pull it, the 904 trans (I think you said it was an auto) maybe $100. If the engine is a 198 you can sell it for a boat anchor. The interior and suspension could also bring you some cash. The key is finding someone who needs these parts and is willing to pay for them.

Forgot this. Think glass. The glass on them is pretty valuable, especially the rear window, of course the disclaimer above applies.

Is it just me or is the price going up all the time. It started at $80, then $100 and now $125. Just wondering, have you even seen the car yet?

Actually it's just you, it is 100, 125 for the car and to have it shipped here. Started at 80 because I figure it would be right around there, seeing as how other then that it was going to the junkyard.

it just depends on how ambitious you are and how much you like dusters...

there are a lot of aftermarket a-body parts out there, including frame rails, floors, and torsion bar mount repair plates, so it can be done...

...and yes i said frame rails. i understand it's a unibody, but that is how they are commonly referred to (really, what else would you call them?)

You misunderstand my friend, if I bought this car, it would be to part it out and make a profit from it.

Sell it as parts? So you can get what, 200 out of it tops? Screw that. Restore it and you can make thousands.
