Oh, and yes, they, the Belvedere did get good mileage with the six, and even with the 273 or 318 V-8 it wasn't bad on gas. My Mom's Belvedere was a wagon though, but it was nice while she had it. I forget what happened with the Valiant and the Belvedere both, why we didn't have them longer than what we did. She didn't have her Satellite long either, as she was speeding and got into a wreck on a side street in our Chicago neighborhood with it. She totaled that baby. Said she wasn't going that fast, but I told my Dad at the time, "Yeah, she goes 40 to 60 down on 83rd St at times and you know it's only 30 and 35 over there. 40 might not be so bad there, but not on a side street." She was furious with me! I was like 13 or 14 at the time.

I'm out of work and homeless. Been out of work since October of last year, I've gone through almost every penny I had saved up, and I've been homeless off and on for over a decade now as I've just not earned enough to keep a place of my own or to pay rent when sharing with people and still be able to buy food, clothing and other necessities and save money. Since I'm 56 now, saving money is extremely important as I have no ailments to warrant me going on early social security/disability and I don't want it either as it wouldn't be enough per month. Anyhow, I'm looking for work, just hope I find a decent employer and decent paying job, not some minimum wage BS or temporary position again. They're taking advantage of people down here a lot. Later and have a great day and week ahead.

Hell yeah I'll be a bud, I was going to friend you, or send a buddy request when I first saw that bit about the Duster. You beat me to the punch. My Mom's was a 1973, same 3 speed and 225 slant six. You could throw twin turbos on those babies and they'll kill V-8s all day and night, much like my old 1987 Buick Regal Turbo Coupe and my 1987 Buick Regal Grand National. Hell, you could probably throw twin turbos on the newer Chrysler/Dodge V-6s and eat the hemis at the lights and STILL get superb mileage. Wish I had the money, boy, what I'd do to a few of them newer and older cars, trucks, etc. I won't be able to get on here much though. I got caught in the rain, so I'm just here by chance for now.

Wow! A Belvedere? My Mom had that as her first or second car. She also owned a Valiant, Satellite and an Aries along with a Corolla or two besides the Duster.

"I had a 1969 Ford Galaxie 500 that would get 21 mpg on the highway, with a 429 cobra jet, thanks to the highway gears." Those Galaxies were great! One of my uncles had one, and my Dad had a Galaxy wagon for a short time. He didn't like the wagon though, and tried one other Ford, had problems with it and decided to go Chrysler and Plymouth after that. He was very happy with the Chryslers.
