1972 Demon racing in the Nostalgia Muscle Car Class
1971 Demon

In 1970 Plymouth was given a new model made from the Valiant -- called the Duster. Dodge screamed foul and for 1971 they got their version, called the Demon. Southern Baptist screamed over the less than Holy name -- and for 1973 to 1976 the car lost its distinctive tail lights and was called the Dart Sport. The Demon was never produced in the numbers the Duster was, although it sold better than the Sport models. The Demon 340 actually replaced the Swinger 340 in 1971.

There is also a 2007_Demon_Concept, which has its own page.

Because of recent spam attacks on Mediawiki sites by the tens of thousands of spammers concerned with the length, girth and hardness of our Johnsons, we have had to temporarily disable new registrations and editing until measures can be taken to ensure there is no further vandalism of this site. We apologize for the assholes out there that don't have better things to do, and will find a work around soon. Meanwhile, there are still thousands of MoparWiki pages containing a wealth of information.
