Re: 'cuda

Sweet!! Looks like a '72. He should build it - not restore it.
I'm still looking for a decent '70-'71 shell at a good price.

Re: 'cuda

Wow! That is nice, and takes me back. Has he already done a lot of work, or did he find it in fairly pristine condition?

Re: 'cuda

I don't know a lot of detail unfortunately.

I know it's a '72, and he got it on eBay from a guy in CA. I think the guy selling was a truck driver, and he delivered the car to FL on a flatbed.

Re: 'cuda

Nice car. I think the six-pack version stated so on the hood. This is most likely just a four barrel. Still, a great car.

I like the Florida touch in the garage(Hurricane panel leaning on the wall).

Yeah, it was "ok", but this was our transportation for the weekend. Her sister just got it.

Re: 'cuda

I had two Cudas. One '70 383 727 and one '72 318 . Why did I sell the 70 .

I have a HEMI Dart project in mind just looking for the right deal to come along.

I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: 'cuda

OMG the memories!!!

My first set of wheels (4 wheels, anyway) was a red 'n black '72 'Cuda 340 with the slapstick shifter. Paid $750 for her in 1978 with a fried tranny. I loved that car and kick myself every time I see one.

I sold her to an idiot. I had a Holley 750 spreadbore on it and a real lumpy cam. The moron didn't like the carb and intake, so he bought an old Torquer intake and a carb to match. The intake was rusty so he took it to work and sand blasted it, but didn't wash it out. So guess where the residual sand ended up??? You should have seen the cylinder walls!!! What a sin.

This is the first one I've ever seen with a shifter mounted on the steering stem!!

what a putz. if there is ever a mopar to own its a 'cuda. it's pretty much the only car that ever looked good in purple and that bright lime green. and it even pulled off hot pink pretty decently too. I think I'd go purple if I ever owned one.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Before I had my 'Cuda, there was a guy in college with me who owned a '71 (I think) 440 6-pack convertible in purple. That was sweet. If I remember right, it was a 4 speed too.
