1976 Plymouth Feather Duster

The Feather Duster was sold as a fuel economy package (for $50.56 1976 dollars). It incorporated aluminum parts so as to save on weight. The aluminum inner-hood and trunk-lid panels, intake manifold, bumper mounts, and transmission casing were good for a 200lb weight savings. The slant-6 model was capable of 20/36mpg, rivaling today's economy cars.
