Dodge Demon painted in it's original color of GY3 Citron Yella and sporting its original numbers matching 340 engine and correct interior/exterior colors and style. This Demon was pictured on the cover of High Performance Mopar and had a multi-page feature article in the magazine.The numbers-matching engine was hot tanked, magnafluxed and bored. 030 over and the steel crank was turned. The heads were ported, polished and completely refreshed. The car's parts were disassembled and cleaned, refurbished or replaced with reproduction or N. The stainless trim was replaced or polished as necessary and the seats were recovered.
After the restoration was completed this Demon has consistently taken home show trophies, including a number of 1st place awards. Most people reading this already know, but the original Demon was only available for 2 years.
The name was changed and the styling was significantly different for the 1973 model year. This car continues to be a crowd pleaser and consistently takes home trophies and best-in-show awards to this day. An added prominent honor is this.
Was the inspiration for one of the 1/64th scale Johnny Lightning High Performance series cars. This exact Demon is pictured on the background card which appeared on a number of their different series cards.Not only was this Demon a Mopar Magazine's cover and featured article car, but it is the basis of a Johnny Lightning die-cast collectible and is pictured right on the card! Take a close look at the fender tag and the rare original options including. Citron Yella High Impact Paint (GY3). OS Dual Painted Mirrors (G36). Hood Tie Down Pins (J45). Fender Mounted Turn Signals (L31). Floor Mounted Cassette player with microphone (R26) - According to the information I could find, only 40 Demon 340s came with this option! One last EXTRA RARE item to point out. The emissions control parts (N95) are still on the car - Now that's WILD - everyone remembers that emissions parts were some of the very first things almost everyone back in the day took off and tossed out! Runs fantastic and shifts perfectly (I believe it has a shift kit in the transmission). The speedometer, gauges, lights, tach (though not all that accurate) turn signals and cancel feature, all work properly. The ammeter has been replaced with a much, much safer voltmeter gauge and was installed in the ammeter location for originality purposes. As the VIN indicates this car was built at the Los Angeles plant and typical for that specific plant, no broadcast sheet was present. This Demon is ready for any inspection (highly-encouraged) and speaking from experience, it is a great joy to own and attracts a lot of positive attention.
Of course, the mileage will increase slightly because I still will drive it periodically to keep everything fresh. Due to its age the mileage is believed to be accurate but is not guaranteed. I'm not just some guy that bought a Demon to race or abuse.Check out my feedback, I believe I know how to maintain collectible cars and treat them with the care they need and I really value them for what they are. Now be advised, this Demon is certainly not perfect. After all, it is almost 50 years old, but it sure is much sweeter than most..
