  This thread is dedicated to our members and their cars.   


This will be a thread of all the members rides with pictures and information on their car.  They should be able to edit their one post to upgrade the info or replace the pics as their restoration progresses.  Please post you info and car no matter what condition or stage you at at.  Whether it is a rust bucket, in a million pieces or a completed show car, we would all like to see it.  Sometime I forget who has what??  This will be a great place to keep track. 

**I will be monitoring this thread and will remove all posts that don't follow the format.  If you would like to comment on a picture or this thread, please look for the discussion thread in this section.

'72 Challenger Rallye 340/727  8 3/4.

I bought it in august 2005. I live in Oslo, Norway.

It's painted Panther Pink, but some spots in the engine room reveals that it used to be a white color. Fender tag is missing, so I've no idea of it's original specs.
VIN #: JS23H2B433645

Engine cast #: Could be MH 340 R 89888183, or most likely, it's MH 340 R 39388183.
It's condition is fairly good. Looks good at a distance, but up close it's clear that this isn't a show car.
Interior is very nice though.

All harnesses have been replaced with new ones from Year One, still some bits and bobs to be replaced in the dash.

Got OEM windshield wiper arms, wiper blades, and refurbished wiper motor installed.

Alterktion front suspension (, Street Lynx rear suspension ( , Holley 750cfm, Edelbrock Air Gap intake, ported and milled heads to achieve 9.5:1 compression, aluminium radiator, Pertronix ignition, custom fuel tank with sump and electric pump, XV chassis stiffening kit, Dougs Headers with ceramic coating, and white / amber LED running lights / parking lights.

1970 Challenger R/T

( (

( (

Bought this one a few days ago. VIN: JS23U0E102400
The seller told me it had been dragracing in the States at some time. I will try to find out more about the past of this car.

The engine is a warmed over 440 with Indy heads and intake, Holley Ultra 750 cfm double pumper carb, unknown cam, seller told me the crank shaft is internally balanced.
The tranny is a TCI Street Fighter. Rear axle appears to be stock, don't know the gearing.
Alterktion, four-link, and wheels from The Pink Panther will be moved over to the R/T, and The Pink Panther will put up for sale.

It came Plum Crazy from the factory, and it will be Plum Crazy again, after a lot of little things have been sorted out.
The wiring urgently needs to be replaced.  :eek7:
The hood will be replaced with a T/A hood,
The fuel tank will be replaced with a custom one with an internal pump (Currently it has an external pump mounted in the trunk, directly on the X-frame behind the rear seat! It's waaay too loud).
The seats will be replaced.
The dashbord got cracks and broken vents which needs to be sorted, and a complete new heating system is required too, because right now there's nothing there, I won't bother with installing AC.
The exhaust tips and rear muffler will be replaced with TTi tips and some or another muffler. Maybe a stock one from ECS, unless the ECS guy here will die from a heart attack induced by seeing what's on there now.  ;)
The reverse light lens will be replaced with a stock clear one.
A EFI conversion might be prudent, considering the double pumper. Fuel is expensive here.

Here are my two babies.
1st-1970 Challenger R/T Convertiable. Restored all original sheet metal Calif. car including trunk-bumbers-and sidelights. Restored as per broadcast sheet and fender tag with the exception of the motor. The original 383 was swapped out back in the 70's for a 440. The motor now is a 440-30 over with 9.7 to 1 comp. 512 lift Lunita hyd. cam 3000 stall converter by Frank Lupo.8 3/4 4.10 surgrip-complete MSD ingnition-Hooker 1 7/8" headers--Edelbrock RPM dual plane intake--Holley 4779 750 dual feed double pumper-Moroso 8 qt pan with windage tray.The car has power top with power steering and manual drum brakes. The very rare color combination is Hemi Orange with a T5 Saddle Tan SE Leather Interior. It took me 6 years of bugging the original owner who lived 2 miles from my house to sell it to me.I have owned it since 1998.
2nd is my 1967 GTX. This car is completely restored to showroom conditions. All number and dates match. It was featured in two Mopar Magazines and was judged in the very first Carlisle CSO judging in 1994 by Roger Gigson and Galen and 11 other top Mopar men at the time.  Powered by a 440 with a console auto and a 323 suregrip,
I have owned it since 1992

Hi, my name is Joakim Vike, I live in Norway, born in 1981. I have a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda that I've made to be an AAR replica/clone/recreation/tribute, call it whatever you want. Now it is converted to a Pro-Touring car. The car was styled as a 'Cuda when I got it and it had a 340 that I discovered was from a 1972 model. It was Velvet black with red hockeystripes, and black interior. I bought it from Seattle in 2005. If any previous owners read this the VIN is BH23G0E102684.

The car relavent to this site is a late 74 production Challenger. Originally avocado green with white vinyl top and white interior, a/c, and every light, stripe, and chrome option available that year, 318 2bbl, 904 awefulmatic trans and 8 3/4 rear with 2:76 peg leg.

I picked it up in '01 in its current dark blue paint. There are at least 7 layers beneath the current color so it will need stripped some time and when it does, I can fix some of the rust in the rear quarters. Headlight covers are fixed for participation at open track events, but I'm working on some method of movable opening so they can remain hidden during the day. To be honest, the car is kind of a pile and needs a complete make over, but it isn't in the cards right now, so I drive it.

Engine is currently a 360 4bbl ,4 spd, with 3:55 sure grip. New engine dynos over 400 horses altitude adjusted at the crank but being that I use it at a 5000ft altitude, it only has around 275 at the wheels (FWIW a mild big block will only make 180-200, so I can't complain too much). Car is being used as a test bed for suspension and chassis mods. It has had stock t bars, springs, and no sway bars all the way up to 1.2 t-bars, adjustable sway bars and mondo heavy springs with various styles of shocks. I'm collecting all the data  to create a matrix of what mods create what benefit to handling at what price. Figure it will be good data to share with others as well as enjoying the tinkering in the mean time.

My baby for 14 years
Was a daily driver when I first got it,then spent a few years sitting all apart.I then met the people of this site and they gave me all of the encouragement to get going on it.The 318 was removed and a built 360 with a 904 low gear set and 323 sure grip 8 3/4 rear.The car could use a paint job ,but that will have to wait-------------
because in the garage is my project car a 71 Cuda,I hope to start on real soon.I think the sign on the garage sums it up.
I have also added another car to the stable,my 92 Electric blue Daytona Iroc
I am waiting for next one to arrive(being transported)1993 Dodge Daytona Iroc R/T(White one with rear louvers)
and another just arrived last weekend,a 92 daytona Iroc(white one next to the blue one)

Well here is my 74 Barracuda. It has a 340 (originally 318) with edelbrock intake, headman hedders and 727 torqueflight transmission with 2500 stall convertor. I have had her for a little over a year now and am always trying to improve her. I have done a lot of improvements and am now currently replacing front floor pans, Carburetor (edelbrock thunder series 650 ), carpet and front seat belts, front wheel bearings, powering steering box, front shocks (kyb), inner tie rods and some other misc items. I still have a ways to go before I finish with her but I am enjoying cruising with her as I fix her.

I picked up my 1970 Challenger from southern MO in March 2004, after looking for 2 years. I wanted either a Plum Crazy or Panther Pink car, but my wife told me in no uncertain terms that she would not be seen in the same car with me if it was pink car, so to keep peace, I went with FC7.

Originally a 318 SE car, cloned to a 440-6 RT Slapstik convert. Previous owner did most of the work, I finished it up when I got it.

3.55 Sure Grip

Original California car, all original sheet metal.

Original FC7 Plum Crazy paint with white bumblebee stripe
Rebuilt the engine - a '67 block, align bored, balanced and blueprinted; decked the block and heads; stuffed it with forged pistons, steel crank, hotter than stock cam - she purrs when idling, and screams when I let all the ponies loose :grinyes:

New dash, new carpet, rebuilt gauges

Couple of minor things to do yet, but by and large, I am very happy with how the car looks and how it drives. Judging from the thumbs up when I drive it, so do a lot of other people!

My fear turned to awe.My dad grabbed me off the stage.I knew I would have one. Later on I fell for the AAR. I got hotweels and toys.I'm a nut case. In highscool everybody had cars...Chevy...Fords... Just wasn't me. I had a 72' Dodge Demon and a 67' Coronett 440. Now I'm building my dream 'cuda.

  I bought my car in July 1977. It is a # matching 340/AT/3.55 suregrip.  The engine has been bored .030,10.5:1,292 purple shaft cam, Holley 770 street avenger with Elderbrock RPM Airgap manifold.  TTI X-pipe exhaust. Trany has full manual transgo shift kit with 3000 stall converter.  This car is a two tag car with  A/C,PS,PDB,6-way seat,rear window defrost,front & rear spoiler pkg,road lamps,rear window louvers, with the full ralleye pkg. Nicely optioned car.  I parked it in the garage in 1985 with a broke transmission and it sat for 21 years.  One day on the computer I stumbled upon and this re-ignited my interest to get it fired back up. Got it started in late fall 06 and spent this last summer (07) going to all the cruises and shows I could. This winter I plan to start striping it down in preparation for a paint job this spring(I hope). Staying with orig. FC7 color but will probably add a billboard stripe.

I purchased my '73 Challenger in the fall of '02 when I was 17.  It was originally a 318-powered, F-8 Dark Metallic Green paint, green vinyl top, and green interior car.  My plan is to have a white top, white interior, and white side stripe to compliment the Plum Crazy exterior.  Under the hood it'll have a date-coded 340 that will be painted the original Corporate Blue, but will hopefully have the internals built somewhere around the 500 horsepower range.  I'm planning on some nice aftermarket 17" wheels wrapped in Z-rated tires to coincide with the suspension modifications I've made.  The car originally came from Arkansas, but I found it in a local advertising paper in a smaller town near Green Bay, Wisconsin.  Needless to say, I went there, inspected it, and liked what I saw. I had the lower quarters reskinned, but the rest of the car was extremely solid, considering it was stored around the rust belt for many years.

The first time I saw it:

How it looks as of now:

This is my 70 Challenger R/T. I got it from my dad in 2004 as a bribe to join the Air Force. He had it for 28 years and passed it down. It was originally from Huntington Beach California and then my dad bought it from his boss in 1976 at a union 76 service station. He got rid of his road runner for it. It was ordered with a flat hood and no stripes and no R/T badging on the trunk. matching numbers 383 HP, 727, 8 3/4, burnt orange on burnt orange. it has a hemi grind cam and a 30 overbore but thats it. it is an on going daily driver project and i wouldnt have it any other way. I have changed the front brakes to disc from a 73 sattelite and the next mod is the rallye hood coming in Jan. I also plan on changing it to a 4 or 5 speed if i ever get the motivation and money. well, that is my story. 


the 727 turned out not to be matching numbers  :'(  however, she is now a 4 speed with the fiberglass hood. I am currently searching for the stuff to build a 438 Stroker for it. I have a block on hold, but need the rest. This will be my wifes first time doing anything to a car and our first engine build together.  :bigsmile: Just thought i would post a quick update

Guess it's needless to say but there sure are a lot of FINE cars round here! :2thumbs:
 I'm from north eastern NJ, transplanted from Queens NY where I grew up. Just turned 55 & had no time for a hobby till a few years ago, my first two sons were off to college & the little guy only kept me busy a few days a week,so I started lookin for something to do, boy did I find it,the rustbucket, bout 6 years later & i'm gettin close. Since I got it round 01 , the older 2 have graduated, # one graduated fordham, moved out & getting married next oct, the 2nd is half in & half out, working a job that takes him to south jersey a few days a week & his girl is half way down by rutgers(where he graduated) so a few days there & a few here. Little guy is not so little anymore, 7th grade . all created by one wife whom I think I'll keep, too old to break in another one now! So thats my little family, now here's the cars!
I will submit my projects , trying to recreate my old baby.
 1=74/360 'Cuda   Bought new in late 73 & sold in 81
 2=the first candidate that I thought I could afford(HA) cheap enough but really everything was shot cept the drive train(I hope) kinda looks decent there, but I assure you it was NOT! 73 barracuda somewhat cloned to a 'Cuda
 3=after taking SOME of the rotted metal off
 4-5&6= as she stands now, still need the whole interior, but a little more work on the outside & it will be street leagle.
Mildly worked 360 est bout 350 hp, 727/shift kit & 355 gears out back.
 7=A little more like my orig in options, 74 360 still short a few options I had (rally dash for one) but it's got a/c & at my age I definatly need that for summer crusin! Blue on blue car, I'll keep the B5 outside, but may black & blue the interior, will go back to as stock as possible(if I ever finish the first one!)
add in a more recent shot, almost ready to hit the road!

Here are mine. The first is my pride and joy. It is a 72 Challenger with a 340 with 2 four barrel Carter carbs. I have had this Challenger for more than 11 years now and drove it all through high school. I took it to my Senior Prom, my wife's Senior Prom and to our wedding. The second car is my next project which is going to be a lot of fun and I can't wait is a 70 Challenger A66 car. 340 4 speed factory plum crazy white interior white stripe car.

My name is 4Cruizn and I'm a Moparoholic.  Below is my addiction. First is my 1973 original black 'Cuda. 

Bought it in 1982 while in my last year of highschool.  This is my first car. Currently it has a 500+CI stroker motor that is under repair with a 18 spline trans/dana60.  The original 340 and it's 4 speed sit in a corner of my garage for safe keeping.  This is my first wife. 

Second is my 1970 barracuda convertible.  Originally orange with black accents, now purple with white. 440 auto with shaker and power top.  Nothing like cruising with the top down enjoying the sound of that 440!  Very cool! 

I live in Michigan half way between Detroit and Lansing.  Enjoy going to Woodward Cruise, Mopar Nationals, Carlisle All mopar show and the US Nationals in Indi.

These are my rides.
I`ve owned my Fastback since -84, bought it as a rolling shell. It`s a factory 383 4-speed Formula S.
Although not with the original engine or trans. Had it inspected (for the first time  :woohoo: )by the Swedish DMV late this summer.
So I had a couple of weeks on the road , at last.

Bought the Convert 3 years ago from Peet in Colorado who was the second owner, it has 65 K on the odo.
My plans for the convert is to keep her in this shape since I consider it as a survivor.
It`s a 318, 904 car

Here are mine..

'71 Challenger originally F7 Green with a 318/904 Combo, A78 is the SE package for this year only and i was lucky enough to find this car in 2001 for $2500, but it needed everything. Luckily, noone had tried to rebuild this car in the past, and it sat in a garage for about 15years prior to seeing daylight again. As you guys know, our cars always look nice to others, but we could go around and point out everything. I need to: get a rechromed rear bumper, replace dash, TTI headers, Passenger fender, front brakes before next season. My car is now a 408/727 combo, hooker headers, '70 B5... theres more but i cant think, report back later

'69 Dart, just started. this was my mothers car at once. stay posted in the restoration projects forum....

Great cars, great people.

Here is my contribution:
My 73 Challenger purchased out of AZ in 06. I purchased the 73 with a 72 as a package deal, and offed the 72.  I bought the cars sans engine and trans.
This is what it looked like when I bought it. < >
The 73 Challenger Had been sitting inthe desert for 12+ years, rotting the roof, and the dutchman and the trunk floor. It had been tagged on every corner, some areas worse than others. The cool thing was the underbody was perfect, and overall the car was unmolested and unmodified. It lived its life a s a plain Jane, 318, auto console/bucket car, white exterior, white interior, black vinyl roof. Heck, it even had a trailer hitch.
The car is currently undergoing a slow and steady "resto"

Here she sits: < >

I should have it in paint by next fall, if all goes according to plan.

Alrighty, my 1972 Plymouth Barracuda. Factory 318/904 car, original lemon twist, canada export car. Car was bought on eBay about three years ago when i was 17, saved it from turning into a drag car actually! what a shame! Anyway, the car was daily driven late 2004, 2005, and most of 2006. 318 has a few modifications, 3500rpm stall converter, shift kit, 3.91 r&p. Fun car to drive around in for now. I have a late Mopar Performance short block 360 I'll build up for it one day. Block accepts tappet or roller cams, magnum or LA heads. Would like a magnum roller setup for it, and some boost! Some day  :thinkerg:

Wheels are american racing 17 and 18 torq thrusts. 295s out back, 235s up front. Interior has a harms shifter, autometer gauges, alpine and polk audio stereo.

I caught the e-body bug when I was in high school in the 70's after seeing Vanishing Point one evening on ABC.  By the time I turned 16 and got my drivers license I was dead set on getting an AAR cuda or a T/A Challenger.  It took a few months but I finally found a T/A I could afford with the money I had saved over the years cutting lawns and doing other odd jobs.  Terrible car for a teenager living in the snow belt! But somehow we both survived and I still have the car today.  It's been in restoration for a number of years, slow going but hopefully someday it will be done!
It's a numbers matching 4 speed with a 3:91 rear sold by Mr. Norms so it is worth the effort.

In the early 90's I decided I wanted a decent Challenger for casual cruising and local shows. A 318 convertible seemed like the perfect choice, but after about 5 years of looking I found none for sale that weren't junk or sold before I could look at them.  I ran wanted ads in MCG and Hemmings and got a lead on a '70 383 convertible 130 miles away.  It was nicer and more expensive than I had aimed for, but I bought it anyway and have never regretted that decision!  It is sort of an oddball, factory "N" code 383 4 barrel but not an R/T.  Loaded with most power options including PW, AC, top, AM/FM, disc brakes plus it is optioned with the SE trim pieces and factory pinstripe.  I take it to many local shows and cruises when the weather is nice and I can put the top down.

History:  This car was purchased by a gentleman on Aug.31, 1971, 4 days after getting out of the Army. He used this car as his daily driver, even to pull a trailer with a snowmobile through New Hampshire roads. It was well taken car of, always garaged. He sold it in 2001 as he thought he thought he "blew the engine" to a gentleman who raced Mustangs. The Challenger was not registered and was put in a barn full of racing Mustangs. In 2003 the car was sold to me. The assumed engine damage was basically from the neck of the radiator falling off and after resoldering it back on the car runs fine! The engine has never been rebuilt, matching #s drivetrain. When I picked up the car, I brought it by the original owner's house. He had tears in his eyes to see his beloved Challenger again and made me promise him if I were to sell it that he would have first dibs to buy it back. This is a very early production '72 model year Challenger. It has the '71 style Rallye Gauge cluster. It has factory body side moulding and therefore assumably no fender louvers and strobe stripes. It retains all the factory original body metal.  The Challenger still retains Pioneer 8 track, fog lights, and trailer hitch original owner installed.  Even fuzzy dash!

1972 Dodge Challenger Rallye 
Build date 8/17/1971
Matching numbers 340 engine, never been rebuilt, 106K miles
Paint code TB3=Super Blue, blue interior
Originally steel wheels and hubcaps from the factory (Still have.)
Documentation: Original hand written and typed Vehicle Invoice from MacKensie Motors in NH, Owners manual, Chrysler Emissions Control manual, Consumer Information sheet, original application for title, buildsheet.

Hi, my name is April and I have a 1972 Plymouth Cuda 340 that I purchased in July of 2004.  In 1995 I went to Fall Carlisle with Joe (my husband) and a friend who had a 70 Challenger.  While there I found a poster of a 70 Cuda in Moulin Rouge and that is when I knew I would have one someday.  I still have the picture today. 

I found my car on ebay, drove out to Ohio from NY to see it and brought her home.  The car was already painted pink when I got it, but it is an original FY1 (Lemon Twist) car. 

Some updates since I purchased the car:

-Rebuilt original 340 block in 2006-
-Clevite Rod, Main and Cam Bearings
-Melling Oil Pump
-Sealed Power Moly Rings
-Sealed Power Sterling Pistons (Forged)
-MP Purple Shaft Cam 280 dur/474 lift
-2.02" intake valves/new valve seals  (upgraded from 1.88" valves)
-Cloyes True Roller Timing Chain
-ARP fasteners
-MP waterpump
-TTI headers with 2 1/2 inch exhaust and Flowmaster 40's
-New 340 six pak set up from Six Pak Performance in AZ
-Re-cored original radiator

Car came with air shocks so I replaced them with HD 2 inch above factory leaf springs from ESPO Springs and Things

Aftermarket Tuff Wheel (would like a real one)

Had a ferd spoiler, lol, fixed that issue

Repainted engine compartment when motor was out

Rebuilt Clock, Tach, and Speedo

This winter I will be upgrading some things.  I want to re-do the dash, carpeting, changing my 4:10 rear to 3:91, change front rotors (thanks MEK for the new ones) and maybe add some sound deadener to the interior so my ears aren't ringing after a long drive.  I am sure there will be more to come, after all, they are never done, are they?

 :2thumbs: My honey and I may be on the "older" side of life but we love our "girls" and we don't exactly act our age. Although staying up with the Carlisle croud in the parking lot is a tuff task for us.  :roflsmiley:

Sorry the 69 is not pictured, she's sitting in the garage although she is certainly drivable she is embarrased, she needs a make over pretty bad.  :smilielol:

The Charger is "My girl", she's a honey,sweeter than wine. A 500 SE, 383 mag. 4 speed, the motor has just 52,000 (46,000 when I got her) original miles and has never been touched.

The Dart will be a "hell raiser", she's solid as the day she came off the line with all original sheet metal, soon to have a built 440 with dual quad set up, her paint is in need of some TLC. A wet sand and buff by Tony would be nice.  :2thumbs:

The Satelite is my lil "Street B!tch", has a nasty disposition and is a little rough around her curves. She is body wise just as I bought her, got a little plastic here and there  :roflsmiley:. But the 440 6 pk makes her sound like a...........well, a street b!tch.  :roflsmiley:

The Chally is our reason for being here since March 2002, she has faithfully taken us to Carlisle every year c-c.c has been going as a club. The 360 mag with the high ratio rear end makes her the best cruiser of the family. She's a plain Jane that shines like a gem and gets her own share of lookers, her fine blue pearl coat over the satin white and the bright blue interrior can make ya look twice.   :cheers:  :bigshades:

Here is my car.  It is a 1973 Dodge Challenger.  It is a real 340 car, but actually has a 318 in it now (which I didn't know about till after it was delivered).  I've been slowly fixing up the car.  It is cam'd (I don't know the specs) and has a Holley hi rise with 770 Street Avenger carb (a little overkill).  I've redone the interior, fixed most of the gauges (just need the tach), replaced the floor pans and transmission tunnel.  I also installed a Richmond 6-speed transmission and Classic Auto Air.  She is fun to drive and gets looks and thumbs up everywhere I go.  Future plans include replacing the 318 with either a 440 or proper 340, getting the rust out and I forsee a paint job coming her way.  At first I wasn't crazy about the stance, but it has grown on me.  It kinda gives her an attitude.



This is the only shot of the interior I have since installed a center console (which rattles to no end)

Forgive the mess in the engine bay.

What can I say?? SOOOO many sweeeet rides. It all started with me when I was about 14 and had a neighbor about 10-12 years older than me & that was always building & racing hotrods. He had a black pearl '70 'Cuda (340) & '68 Charger (440) that were the talk of the neighborhood. Nobody could touch his small block!! He became my mentor & I was hooked on Mopars ever since, and have had 4 Barracuda's and one Challenger since High school. I currently own a '68 Barracuda with a hot little 360 with a NOS setup. It was originally a 318 car and was redone in 2003. I bought it from upstate NY and drove it home to Virginia where I live. My real love is the "E" bodies and I bought my '74 Challenger (in 2006) from a great guy and fellow Mopar lover in Auburn California. I had it shipped to VA. It is an original CA car and was purchased from the original family that owned it. It's nothing special, originally a 318 car which now has a sweet Hughes built 440 (dyno'd around 425 HP), 727 automatic tranny and interstate gearing which will be changed out this summer for 4:10 posi. It was originally Top Bannana Yellow. I just painted the whole car in July (includeed replacing the rusty trunk and fixing little dings and dents (Car was virtually rust-free from California enviroment and being kept in garage) after having the front wheel come off while driving to the drag strip (that's another story and there's a post on that). Since I already have a yellow car I opted not to paint it back to the original color. The only thing that may be a little "rare" on the car is the original cloth seats (I think the pattern is a Houndstooth?). I've not seen too many Challengers with cloth seats. It has a center console with slap-stick and Centerline Covo-Pro rims and BFG's. Thanks to Jason (Stroker) for the rear set! This is an awesome site and great people!! I love all the pics and stories associated with them!!  :2thumbs:

UPDATE: Since 2006, The Challenger has been painted, and I built and installed a stroked 440 (543 cubes) that puts out over 600 HP with 651 ft/lbs of torque. I have the build specs posted in the "Proven Engine Combo" section. Tha Barracuda was not prepped right when redone in 2003 and now needs a repaint. They are a blast to drive!!

Mine is a 1971 Barracuda, & originally a 318 car. Somewhere along the way one of the previous owners transplanted a 400-4V into it with a 727 trans. It looked horrible in the pics, but when I went to go see it in person, it wasn't that bad at all. I picked it up in the summer of 2004 as a back burner project with no intentions of doing anything to it in the immediate future.

I've always wanted to get one, but knew if I didn't get it when I had the chance & some extra cash, I'd probably never own one with the way the prices were climbing. I didn't care if it was a 'Cuda or not, or whether it had a big block, I just wanted a 1971 model. Been wanting one since I test drove a 1970 Barracuda Convertible about 25 years ago.

The frame rails, firewall, inner fenders, cowl, & passenger compartment floors are all solid with a few patches of surface rust. The trunk floor is soft, so that will need to be replaced. The driver's quarter is probably the worst since it was hit by the tail light & has rust at the bottom. The passenger side quarter will only need a lower repair from rust.

The doors look to be fair, but if I find a clean pair I'll swap them. The front fenders are standard ones without gills & both need work, so I'll be getting a pair of aftermarket ones. It also had a vinyl top that was removed revealing a solid roof skin. The body is the original color, "Tawny Gold" & the interior is all black with a bench seat that has an armrest. I like the armrest so I'll keep the bench.

Here's some pics.....   :biggrin:

I am fairly new to the site. I joined in June of 2007, right after i decided to restore a 73 Challenger that i had purchased. It is getting a complete rotisserie testor, because of some rust issues, and i am to anal to leave anything undone . I will be doing all of the work, because $$ for me does not come to easy(I have Teenagers). It is a #'s matching 318, with a pistol grip 4 speed, but will be sporting a 440 in the last stage of the cars rebuild. I currently have it completely stripped down, and am replacing sheet metal before i put it on the rotisserie and media blast it. This is my first mopar project, and it won't be my last. I am learning a lot from the members of this site and appreciate their willingness to answer my questions. The picture i am posting is taken the week after i purchased and before i began to tear her down. I am also posting pics in the restoration site. Thanks for everything C.C.

Well, here goes again... last time the server died a couple of hours after I posted...  :misbehaving:

I will post pictures of my E-Bodies, and links to pictures of other Mopars that I have.

1970 `Cuda / 440-6BBL / Automatic / 4.10 Dana / FY1 Lemon Twist Yellow / White Interior

My 1970 `Cuda 440-6 “Ole Yeller” was purchased by the second owner for $2975 on April 12, 1971 after having been repossessed from the original owner.  The application to transfer the warranty which was turned down because the 440-6 powered cars could not have warranty transfers, but showed the original delivery date to be November 26, 1969.  The second owner was an Army officer, and he took the `Cuda to Germany in August of 1974 and returned to the US in April of 1977.  I purchased the `Cuda from the second owner on July 14, 1981 for the amazing price of $500… no, I am not kidding!

The ‘Cuda’s option mix is a bit unusual, having come from the factory with a 440 6BBL w/Automatic, 4.10 Dana 60, Shaker hood, front Elastomeric bumper, and column shift!  The only changes that I made during the restoration in 1984 was using a Hockey Stick stripe in place of the original body side molding & 15 inch Rallye wheels in place of the original 14 inch Road Wheels (Magnum 500 style).  I have driven the ‘Cuda to shows all over Texas and several other states, finally trailering it to a show last Fall for the first time.  Ole Yeller is one of three Mopars that I currently own that I cannot imagine ever selling, the other two being my Triple Black 1968 Charger R/T & Platinum Silver 1969 Road Runner.

We bought the72 Cuda Spring Carlisle 1993.  The rebuilt 413 Wedge was in place, 727 rebuilt 1994. The color is custom.  We purchased a doner to get interior panels, switches and wiring.  I don't worry about original, the 413 is way more fun then the 318. 

Along with the Cuda we also have 68 Dodge Charger, 360 4 speed  purchased 3 years ago, missing the 383.  I have one available to drop in, all we need is the rime to do it.  68 Roadrunner, this needs a bit of TLC.  68 Dodge Coronet 4 door, all original everything works on this one.  75 Dodge D100 Custom long bed pick up, this was in the family since new. 90 Chrysler TC by Maserati, 06 Chrysler PT Cruiser G/T.

   This was where we found the T/A in '89. We found it by accident and it took almost a year and a half to get the owner to sell. This is a case of not giving up. Throughout that time I visited and called the owner. We got along very well and swapped stories of the '60s and '70s and he finally decided he would never do the car himself. Although the previous owner did own  a body shop he decided he didn't want to spend his spare time back in the shop working on this car. He very reluctantly sold it to me, he owned the car from 1973 to 1990 and told me there were a lot of great memories in that car.

While keeping the stock appearance I modified the drive train in the following ways :

*  Original block bored .030   
*  OEM T/A Heads
*  TRW 12.5 : 1 pistons   
*  Dist re-curved
*  Reworked & tuned OEM Carbs
*  Crane solid lifter cam : 312 duration .600 lift
*  Stock rods and steel crank 
*  Milodon high volume oil pump
*  Fully balanced
*  B&M racing A727 transmission   
*  GER 4000 rpm stall converter
*  Richmond 4:88 gears

*  BF Goodrich Rear 275-60-15   Front 235-60-15s
*  Good Year Polyglas GT G60-15 & E60-15 for shows!

My 67 Barracuda, named "The Jessica Lynn", original 273-2V engine, 904 auto on the column, bench seats.  YY1 Light Tan exterior, white interior.  Owned her for over 2 years now, and haven't really done too much except drive her.  I do have an 8 3/4 suregrip sitting in the garage for her, but need to rebuild it first.  Hopefully I'll pull her off the road this summer and begin the resto.

Next to her is my 70 Plymouth Suburban 6 passenger wagon, named "Juggernaut".  Original 383-2V engine, 727 auto on the column.  Purchased it a few months ago.  Needs a new fuel pump and carb to be roadworthy.  Plan to drive this one daily while restoring the Barracuda.

This was my car in high school and for a couple of years after I married.
'72 340 727 automatic.

I sold it to my brother...


...who drove it until it got broken into in 1985.


It sat on blocks under a tarp until about ten years ago when he bought a barn to put it in.


He always wanted to restore the car but never got to.
He was killed in a truck wreck in June and I got the car back.

I can't bring my brother back, but I can this car.

1970 'U' Code Cuda. ALL matching numbers drivetrain. ALL original sheet metal. ALL documentation. One of 334 'U' code 4 speed Cudas built in 1970. This makes the car more rare than the vaunted 'V' code Cudas, and second in low production numbers to the mighty Hemi. The car wears its ORIGINAL EV2 Tor-red paint, along with its unique HT6 tan interior. It's a true survivor. This car is only one of 54 known to exist at this time.  Only 57,000 original miles.

I love this board, it has been most helpful.

I'm Steve and got my '70 Cuda (FK5 Burnt Orange) from a high school friend that bought it new. He put 100,000 miles on it in 4 years and traded cars with me in 1974. I rebuilt the motor and basically just enjoyed it for 33 years.

I have the original window sticker and broadcast sheet. The options are:

BS23 Cuda
A62 Rallye Instrument Cluster
D21 4 speed with D91/D56 3:55 ratio SureGrip
E55 340
G11 Tinted Glass - All Windows
G31 Manual Outside Right Mirror
G33 Chrome Racing Mirror remote control left outside
J55 Undercoating and hood insulating pad
R11 AM Radio
R31 Rear Seat Speaker
W21 Rallye Road Wheels
Y14 Sold Car

It now is undergoing a rotisserie restoration. I'd like to eventually put it in Concours condition but for now I'm just trying to get it back on the road. The body work is done as of 12/27 and it's now being painted. Engine and trans are rebuilt and ready to go and I have a pile of parts that I have been amassing since 1974. Here are some pics, enjoy!

Here is my current ride.  Matching numbers engine but not trans, BS code '71 Cuda 340.  I bought this car in January of 2007 from Dexter's in Green Bay.  This car was restored in Michigan in the mid 90's by a guy in a wheelchair and his friends.  It (along with several other cars) appeared on the cover of, and in, Mopar Muscle in October, 1997.  It also took third place at the Mopar Nats in 1996 for E Body modified.

The car was originally dark green with a black interior but was restored ALMOST EXACTLY as I would have ordered a 1971 Cuda way back when; hemi orange, dual painted mirrors, painted grille and valence insert, black billboard, no vinyl top or spoilers.  I couldn't believe it when I saw it for sale.  I would have preferred a 4-speed and AC, but I don't think I could have got any closer without doing it myself.

The real highlight of the car, though, is the ultra rare H5XV black/orange interior.  As of the writing of this thread only one other board member has this interior, and despite having been to most of the big Mopar shows and owning every Mopar magazine printed over the last 17 years I've only seen pics of 5 cars (mine and the other board member's included) with it.  For more info/pics see the thread below.  If you have more info/pics, please add to the thread!: (

Future plans include Classic Air, Keisler 5-speed, a serpentine belt system (they look really cool), and fuel injection.

I've owned other Barracudas (blue AAR, red AAR project, red 70 GC droptop, 71 project 340) before that I've sold because I needed money or room, but this car will be with me until I die.  If I get low on $$$ again I'll empty my retirement fund before I sell this car.[/img]]( (http://[IMG)[/img]]( (http://[IMG)[/img]]( (http://[IMG)[/img]]( (http://[IMG)

Here are my rides: The dark blue Pontiac was my first US-car and i sold it last year. Yes, i know - it looked somewhat ricey.  ;) The orange PT Cruiser is my daily driver. A special edition with interior matching the bodycolor. Like many others here in Europe i bought a diesel car as daily driver, because diesel fuel used to be (quite a lot) cheaper until recently. But now the oil industry reacted to the constantly increasing sales of Diesel powered cars and raised the price of diesel fuel above the price of regular gasoline.  :pullinghair: But at least it's a Mopar and very reliable.

And finally there's my new Challenger. Will take a couple of weeks until i have all the homologations done to get it street legal here. You bet that i'm more excited than a child before Christmas...  :woohoo:

Now I wish I had taken more pictures last summer.  Not that it would have looked much better, though....

Anyway here she is, as bought last spring.  '70 Chally, 383, 4-spd, 8.75 with 3.91's.  Not much of the car is original.  It was a 6 cyl car, which in my mind is a good thing, since I can do what I want without upseting many purists.

Since these pics, I've lowered the stance, installed new BFG's, tti headers, Blaster 2 coil and a new rear valence.  I've also recently bought a T/A hood and rear spoiler.

I feel very lucky to have stumbled onto this site.  Everyone has been great, and a lot of help.  This is definitely the best car site on the web!  :thumbsup:

It was originally a 340 car, but now has a worked 440 putting out about 500 horses. I'd like to mini tub it and put a 472 hemi in it someday.

well here's my barracuda. It had set in a garage torn down to bare metal since 1974.  The Ca desert heat baked everything it could to well done.  Was a fc7 318 4 spd 323 sure grip when it was born. It has 42k original miles on the body. The engine was missing so I built a 440-6 for it . 100 hrs later, I ended up with this. But I do really enjoy it. Maybe I will be able to finish it soon. This is a solid driver and being put back to how it was built in 1969.

Car now has a 400 in it but I have located a correct 383 Magnum for it that I will rebuild and put in someday.....also have a 3.91 suregrip to put in soon. This car was mildly restored in the early 90's and the vinyl roof and SE chrome trim was removed along with the overhead console.....I have located all the SE parts to put back on some day......I have been doing detail work to the car like new engine harness,radiator,alternator,carb,intake,added 15x7 front and 15x8 wheels on the shocks,rebuilt trans,all new chrome on rear end,new lens on tail,new side markers,new painted side mirrors( not in pic) etc......

This is just like the one I had in high school in 1977 that I paid 1000.00 for....except that one was white

I currently have it registered and drive it weekly on the German roads.
Working on the interior now to try and clean it up. It is fun to drive, but the rattles will drive you insane.
Toughest part of registering it over here in Germany was passing the noise restriction (I got it to 92 dB on a 95 maximum)

I own a '71 Challenger. It was originally a 318 car and had a junkyard 360 with some kinda small cam and a Weiand Stealth Intake with a 600 ED carb when I bought it. It was way too shortwinded for me so I sold that motor and put together a 416 from a .030" over 340 block I had in stock with a Ohio Crankshaft prepped 4" stroke crank, KB .070" 360 pistons and Eagle rods. I decided to use new heads for the 1st time on a street car and decided to go with the factory big port Commandos which I extensively ported with the help of my flow bench. They have cut-down 2.08" MP SS Intakes (to 2.04") and the 1.6" SS exhausts, CC Titanium retainers & locks and MP springs compatible with the .528" MP solid cam I used. After doing some trial fitting I found I could adapt some leftover B-1 big block roller rockers I had from another motor so I used them after moving the mounting block centerlines 1/8". They have a 1.7 ratio in this application so I have about .598" lift. I also used Crane 3/8" pushrods. I hope to go to a solid roller later on. It has a ported Victor Intake, 750 Demon vac carb, Xtreme airfilter, Digital 6 plus ignition with MSD wires and coil, Hooker super comp headers that I hacked the flanges off and welded Schoenfeld W-2 Head flanges on (the original flanges didn't line up with the ports at all!) It has Poly engine and trans mounts and a Stef's aluminum pan & pickup and a complete TTI 2 1/2" exhaust and some new stainless mufflers I had laying around. It made 540hp and 510tq on the engine dyno with a Dominator, and 526/499 with the Demon carb it has now @ 6,250.

For the trans I found a great deal in the local Tradin' Times paper on a like new Dynamic prepped 904 with the 2.74 low gear and just switched the VB for a Turbo Action manual to avoid the kickdown link hassle, and put a deep pan and cooler on. It also came with a matching Dynamic 9 1/2" convertor made for a stroker motor. The rear is still the 3:55 posi 8 3/4 that came with the car and so far I just added a pinion snubber to hopefully keep the driveshaft in the car until I can get the chassis squared away. I also installed the Wilwood front disc kit and switched the stock master cylinder for a rebuilt disc brake unit because I do not trust drum brakes on the road today.

Other mods I've did were to put a new fuel system in with a new repo tank, a 1/2" sending unit with a new 1/2" fuel line and a Holley blue pump & regulator. I also added EL power front windows with some adapted 90's Chevy cop car switches, a Jensen CD/Stereo and Bose speakers, all new seat covers from the local Interior shop, and the Centerline satin finish rims 15 x 5 & 15 x 9 with 275 Kelly tires on the back that do little for traction.

My DD beater is a '92 Iroc Daytona with a 3L V-6. It's not fast, but it gets great mileage, never leaves me stranded and stops and handles great.

There is a dentist goodie bag for a garbage bag.
I found 4 year old Advil, fused together in the glove box.
I know it's heart breaking but we all have are sad stories.
Oh. and the brown bag sticking out between the seats is the rear bumper.

1971 Dodge Challenger - 318 car now has a C-body 318 with 340 heads and a 727. A/C PS PB with front discs. Originally B5 Blue with B5 interior and unknown color vinyl top and body side mouldings, plus it is originally an M28 optioned car with the rare wide hood mouldings (which are still with the car). After it was new it was hit hard in the drivers quarter panel and that was replaced and the car was repainted. Sometime in the 1980's the vinyl body side mouldings were removed, the car was painted Plum Crazy with white 71 R/T stripes, the interior was changed to black from a donor 70 SE, and a R/T hood from a later year rallye challenger was added. In the late 80s early 90s the car was hit again on the passenger side all the way down the side of the car. The previous owner then decided to park it and start a restomod restoration. It hasn't been run since 1991. I bought it my sophomore year in high school which was in 2007. A full restoration has been started to try to make it a very nice daily driver. A 440 or 383 could be in its future........

Steve's Mopes, part 1

I've been at this since the early 80's when I bought my first Challenger at the ripe age of 15. 340 Rallye/auto/pea green. Sorry, can't find the pics, but it was "just a ten year old car" and was already fairly rusty when I got it. Upstate NY winters will do that.

The Corvette yellow one was my 2nd Chally (had a few 73 Chargers and some Cordobas & Magnums in-between). I think this was 90 or 91. It was just a 72 with a 318, but still did 110mph without much trouble AFTER I replaced the lower control arm bushing that fell out. Yes, rebuilt the whole front end. I'm the guy holding the case of CANADIAN.

The red one was the S.E. that I thought was too rusty to save, so I pulled the 340 and sold it. Duh. It was one of 57 318 4-speeds, FE5.

The 3rd pic was a Western Sport Special. I've had a few of them. A friend of mine drops by to see if the guy I sold it to will sell it back. Nope. 318, FC7 manual. I don't remember if it was 3 or 4-speed. I sold it to buy a T/A.

I also had an R/T-S.E. 440-6, R/T-S.E. 440-4, FC7 R/T 440-6 and a bunch of 71-74 Chargers in the 90's. I got burned out and sold most of it including all the Challengers and most of the NOS parts I had accumulated.

I got sucked back in, of course.

Steve's Mopes, part 2

Fast forward to a few years ago. I moved from NY to NC. Bought a 72 Rallye Charger 440 on fleebay that I resold fairly quickly. Typical feebay lies in the description. Was a coastal car that rusted from the top down. I had seen enough NY rust to deal with it. Sold it with honest description to an enthusiast who is still collecting parts for the restore. Really nice guy.

Since I'm an idiot, I bought another fleebay car in 2005. This time a 70 Challenger from CA with a 383. More lies, but very little rust. I changed the K-frame (butchered slant-sixer to a good V8 unit), rear end and springs, seats, a bunch of little things to make it a driver. Stripped and re-painted the grille with black instead of the red. WHOLE grille was red! Probably the best running/driving E-body I've ever owned. Sold it to finance another FC7 car. I thought the buyer was a passionate car guy, but I heard he was trying to sell the car at the next show for $7k more. More lies.


I got this beauty from a longtime friend from the Buffalo area. He did the resto in the late 80's, early 90's before there was much in the line of repro parts like now. Transported to another friend's place in the winter during a heavy snowfall. Poor car!


Here she is at home in NC. I immediately redid the grille (was black over the JH argent) and replaced about 100 wrong fasteners. Replaced valve covers with correct 70 parts, added electronic ignition and a new Bill Evans harness, redid the gauges with white faces, again, a bunch of little things.


This is what she looks like now. I redid the wheels and centers, too. Forgot to mention JS23U0B, Super Track Pack, white interior (supposed to have a white top, too). Originally had Purple steel wheels with dog dishes and E-70-15 Polyglas. I thought these only came on T/A's but this one got 'em on all 4 corners. Had 255-70's when I got her. Changed the fronts to something a little shorter.


This is my 71 Charger S.E. Started with a 383, now a year correct 440. Blue Bee stripe, blue  cloth interior. Auto-Grip, of course. She's for sale to pay for work on my "new" 73.


Mods, let me know if my post is too long or has too many pics....I will adjust!

Thanks for looking!

Hey guys, this is my 1974 Challenger. Originally a 318 car. When me and my dad got the car it has been slightly restored and had a rebuilt 360, 727, and 8 3/4 3.23 rear end. The car became mine when my dad handed me the keys to it after I passed my road test. Since then I did as much as possible to it. I messed around with the exhaust for awhile and got settled with a pair of glasspacks last year. This summer I installed headers and a full exhaust, along with an aluminum eddy intake(thanks to IMNCARN82) and Holley carb. This fall at college since im going for automotive I had the chance to rebuild my engine and trany. I had planned to just bore my motor and throw a bigger cam into it. Then I said what the hell. went out and ordered my parts to build a 408 stroker.  Built the trany to hold the new torque monster I built. Iv never been happier with my car. I love it, never going to sell it, and this has to be true love.

Originally a base 318 car, my 1971 Barracuda had been partially gone through when I bought it in 1996.  At the time of my purchase, it sported a transplanted 340, 'Cuda exhaust, an add-on spoiler and seats from a '73.

I found the car in Harrisonburg, VA through Hemmings.  For the sum of $4000, I got a running, driving Barracuda, an extra front clip from a real '71 'Cuda (fenders, hood, valance, grille) and the disc brake set-up from a '73.

As it sits now, this is a basic run-down of the car:

1971 360 (.030 over)
10.25:1 Wiseco pistons
Polished factory rods
Edelbrock Air-Gap RPM intake and RPM heads
Crane Gold 1.6 Rockers
Hooker Ceramic-coated Super Comps
TCI-built 904
3.91 w/ Suregrip
Just Suspension Ground Pounders
Super Stock Leaf Springs
1 1/4" front & 1" rear sway bars
tti 2 1/2" exhaust

Ford JA Sapphire Blue
Argent grille
Eyebrow spoilers
Chrome bumpers
'70 Go Wing

18" AZA Z-08 wheels
Sumitomo HTR-Z III 235/40's & 275/40's

Black/no Console
Hurst pro-Matic w/ Pistol Grip under a four speed hump.  Looks like a factory 4-spd install
Custom gauge panel
BEAMS 3-point retractable seat belts
Electric Life Power windows w/ Factory Switches

Here is my car. It's my second classic MOPAR. I had a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner with a 383, 3 speed. It's a '71 base Challenger. It was a B5 blue, blue interior, auto, 318 back in '71. When I got it was a HEMI orange and rust holes, spray painted pack interior, 1980's truck 360, auto car. My uncle and I did all the work. Body work was done, floor was patched, trunk patched, new passenger side fender, new front a rear valances. The engine is now a brand new 360 4-barrel. Still has an automatic transmission. The hood is the one that came with it, a '70 R/T hood. I put on a true duel exhaust. The interior is white with rally gauges. The white vinyl top is an OEM option. The wheels are off of a Buick Grand National. And of course, it's painted moulin rogue/panther pink now, When I eventually redo the paint to something better than two guys in the garage, I will probably lose the vinyl top and replaces the SE rear window with a full-size rear window. The SE was just the window that was in it when I bought it.



And my '06 Charger R/T...

It was a special order car because it came with the Rally dash and the stripe on the side. My mother gave it to my Aunt and it say in a garage for years. Just had it restored and put in a 440.

Here is my 71, it is a numbers matching 340 with auto, 3.55 suregrip, AM/FM Cassette, AC, Power Disc Brakes, Power Top, HD Suspension with rear sway bar, Dual exhaust.  Originally a GA4 Gunmetal with black side stripes it was painted red by the previous owner.  My future plans definitely include repainting it back to the original color, but for now it is just a fun driver.

Post by: 69bronzeT5 on September 30, 2009 - 01:47:12 PM
I removed my last post since it was pretty much worthless. Here's a post with all 3 of my Mopar muscle cars. :2thumbs:

'69 Charger. My first car technically. My dad's friend found it sitting in a field under a tarp (about 3/4 of it was) partially stripped in Richmond B.C. It was in pretty bad shape. He recognized it by the flip top gas cap. We went and looked at it and ended up buying it for $400. This was late 1998 (November I think). My dad gave it to me for Christmas. I was 6 at the time. I've now had it for 10 years, 11 on December 25th. It was originally a 318 auto car. T5 Copper with black interior. Cool thing is it came with the rare C5X (Vinyl with cloth insert) seat option. Also has a C21 buddy seat. Basic column shift car. When we found it, somebody painted a 01 and a X on the roof with black spray paint. Somebody keyed the car and threw the front bumper through the windshield (hence it missing). That dented the dash and pad pretty badly but my dad did an amazing job fixing it. You can never tell it was dented. The last owner took the grille, drivers door and some of the interior stuff for his car. The funny thing is, I realized the drivers door I have on it now came from HIS car. He ended up finding a bunch of parts in his garage including the originally seats, that door, the original passenger fender and some small interior parts. He still has a bunch of interior stuff for it I need to go buy from him soon. Anyways, we put a 383 & 727 auto in it from a '68 Newport we parted out. Has a lot of rust issues but I'm not giving up hope on it. It's my dream car and I can't wait for it to be finished. First picture is it now and second picture is a photoshop of it done.

Second up is my '70 Coronet 500. In December 2008, I was talking to a friend of mine Paul. He had 2 '70 Coronets in his private junkyard that he parted out. One was a smashed up Burnt Orange 440 model and the other was this F8 500 model. Both were 318 autos. He crushed the Burnt Orange one back in May 2007 because all the usuable parts were taken off. Everything else was smashed. That but the driver of the car when it was crashed didn't survive. The driver died in the car. Anyways, I've always wanted this Coronet but I didn't have the cash to buy it ($400). So I tried numerous times to help my friend buy it (I was the middle man). He kept changing his mind and ended up not getting it. So there it sat. I was talking to him in December 2008 like I mentioned and I jokingly said "So, you ready to give me that Coronet yet?" and he said "Well actually, I'm going to be thinning out my collection so if you list some cars for me online and a couple sell, you can have it". I was shocked. I didn't think he's say yes. Anyways, I've sold a few cars for him now so I'm waiting until I can get the money to drive 12 hours to pick it up. I get a whole crap load of parts with it which I'm excited to get. First picture is it now and second picture is a photoshop of it done.

Last but not least is my '73 Duster. It's a 318 auto. Was originally Y6 Gold with parchment interior and a full black vinyl top. Now it's dark blue with parchment interior and no vinyl top. My dad called me in October 2008 and said he found a Duster in Delta but wasn't sure what year it was. We talked taillights for a while and then I figured out it was a '73-'76. I went over and checked it out on November 8, 2008 and discovered it was a '73. It didn't have much rust, just a bit on the front floor pans and the lower quarters. Overall, it was a solid car. Anyways, after months of anticipation and nervousness, we finally bought it on Feburary 21, 2009 for a total of $650. We got it for a steal! The owner's dad came out and said good luck getting it running. We had it running within a few minutes in the guy's driveway. It was really cool. We got it towed to my grandparent's house in New Westminster. I cleaned it up and gave it a bath that day. I also pulled the old carpet out because it had five pounds of water sitting on it. I'm guessing the owner left the windows open by accident sometime because the window only leaks sometimes (barely) and it's not enough to make a huge puddle like that was. I also ripped out the moldy saggy headliner. My grandpa did some body work on it and patched the front floor pans. The biggest ***** about the car was the starter was hooped. Of course our luck, it has headers. So we finally managed to get the starter out on a cold rainy day. We took it in and got it rebuilt and replaced the starter relay. We also replaced 2 burnt plug wires, the cap and rotor and it finally ran good. I finally got to drive it in June 2009 and it ran like a bat outta hell. It was awesome. It was also my first time driving a muscle car, let alone my own. I did some work to it such as installing the missing front fender trim, fixing the oil leak and a few other small things. My grandpa painted the front fender with spray paint for now along with the sail panels and lower quarters where he did the body work. I took it to a Mopar show in July and managed to win 1st place in the Young Guns class with it. Unfortentley, right now it's giving me electrical issues so I plan on replacing all the wiring this winter. I also have 4 15X7 Rallyes I cleaned up that I'll be putting on it along with new tires. I'm also getting the front seat redone and putting in new carpet and a headliner. I'm painting the dash black, getting a new pad and installing a Tuff wheel I got from free from a friend of (Jackie is sending me a horn pad). I'm also installing hood pins because I think they are just plain awesome. I bought another front bumper that has better chrome, a spare hood, grille and front valance. I found out the guy I bought it from, his grandpa bought it brand new from Johnston Motors in Vancouver. So it was in the same family from 1973-2009 until I bought it. I plan on getting it painted gloss black with white 340 stripes. First picture is when it got towed to my grandparents, second is it at the Mopar show and third is the car I want it to look like (with the exception of '71 dark argent center caps).

Hi Guys,
I bought her a year ago from Ireland uk. She was owned by the president of the Irish Muscle Car Club.
I did a deal with him for my rebuilt 66 v8 mustang,and put her on the ship back to England where i live.
Quite a lot of work has been done in the last year to get the car into show condition,which i have carried out by myself.
She is a numbers matching car so i have not gone with the restomod route and am keeping it fairly stock.
The jobs carried out include removing the original J code heads and doing a valve job as the 340 had a misfire,this was due to
having 2 slightly bent valves which were not sealing. Other jobs include suspension ,brakes and a new upgrade electronic ignition system which looks stock.  The car now benefits from an AAR style strobe stripe,front corner spoilers and rear go-wing.
I have also added a matching chrome mirror to the passenger side of the car for uk overtaking safety!
One job on the interior i still have to do is to fit new sail panels,as the old ones are breaking up with age,i already have the parts for that job,so the interior will soon be show standard too!  The rally dash clock was stripped out and refurbed also as it
was not working.
This car gets a lot of attention at the uk car shows,as there are only a few Cudas here and its rare to see one for real!!!

Car was bought by my Mom & Dad in April 72' when it was 1 year old from Normandin's in San Jose. I fell in love with that grille the minute I saw the car. I was 12 years old then in the peak of Hot Wheels craze. Originally a 2 tag well optioned, 318, A/T, 2.76, beige interior, Gran Coupe in Tawny Gold.

Pic 1 In 78' I graduated from H.S. The first pic was after it was repaired when I rear ended a car. The first pic was in 79' when I was stationed in Germany.

Pic 2 was taken sometime around 92 or 93'. This was when it had a 340 4 speed. The left rear quarter was hit when a truck came into my lane and then repaired (unbeknownst to me at the time) by a professional hackman prior to painting it black.

Pic 3 is where it is today. Body work is getting done most of it by myself this time. Looking forward to Fall when I can have body filler not dry so fast since it's getting done outside.

My '71 'cuda.  Originally a Gran Coupe.  I purchased it from board member hotrod98.

I had to do some thing to personalize it so I took off the Go Wing & had it painted the factory correct shade.
-added eye brow front spoilers
-repainted the motor
-added aluminum valve covers
-new hoses, wires, belts
-deleted all the a/c stuff, almost.

I'm afraid to polish on it anymore since I've already made several rags reddish in color.
I also pulled the wheels off & polished the insides of them.  They're spun aluminum on the inside so the shine is a bit harder to get.  This winter I may pull them off & try sanding them down.  :dunno:

The performance is night & day compared to the 340 '70 Challenger I got out of.

This winter I plan to clean up the inner fenders, firewall & hopefully get a set of ceramic headers.




The other hot rod.  472 Hemi, Gear Vendors, 3:91 Power Lock, original cruise control, rear defogger, light delay, PW, A/C.  I have every thing, including #'s drivetrain to go back to factory specs.

1970 Challenger R/T

#'s matching 383 Magnum, A727 TF & 8 3/4 SureGrip 3.23.

Painted in Cortez Silver ('69 GM Colour) - originally FE5 with white longitudinal stripe.

Has had a few minor modifications: PST Sway-bars, torsion bars. Kelsey Hayes Single Caliper discs up front. Edelbrock intake. Double Pumper. Drives like a dream.

From what I can tell it had been a Californian car most, if not all its life - since the mid '80's at least. I purchased it from San Diego in 2010, and it now resides in sunny Sydney, Australia!

Originally wanted an E body badly and almost scored a 73 'cuda/360 but the seller's Brother stopped him from selling it.
So I scored this 67 barracuda from a co-worker that had it buried in his barn.

I turned it down 4 years prior because I was not into A bodies "at the time".
I finally decided to take a look at it when he told me he was going to sell it to a Ford guy that would most likely flip it or scrap it.
The price was right and the southern body was solid, had a 273/ 904 7-1/4 open rear, plain Jane hubcap car.
The interior was totally shot from rats and it was buried in the barn with wood planks, buckets, paint cans, ladders, boxes, you name it.
It took a long time to dig out.

The day I dragged it home.

Some serious :rebel:Ingenuity and more personal touches than Michael Jackson could ever give Mckauley Caulkin.

11.0-1 360/A-833 4 spd/8-3/4 sure grip 3.91
Holley 870 street avenger/vac secondaries.
SS springs/minitubbed/stock wheel openings/ rear wheel house massaged towards front.
8-point cage.
Rebuilt front suspension with PST parts and big torsion bars., LCA braces(handles well.) even with skinnies.
Torque strap
Line loc.
Fuel cell.
Custom interior.
Made hood scoop functional-felt a great hp gain after that.

Much, too much to list.
















Can't forget my little 71 swinger special /6, three on the tree, that I bought and sold because I could not take it any longer not being able to drive a cool Mopar while building this one.

Post by: Phils other half Sue on August 28, 2011 - 05:13:33 PM
I think that I posted this on the wrong thread earlier so I will post it here!

Hi Guys, thought maybe someone could help me out here, I was Phil Alepa's fiance' of 14 years. Phil raced with the American Power Boat Association (APBA) in the Pro/Stock class where he is a two time National Champion and also was known as Mr. Mopar. Phil had owned a 1970 Dodge Challenger since 1973, he had bought the car with only a few thousand miles on it. As the owner of Alepa's Auto Works he restored the car to a custom showroom  masterpiece. His Challenger was in many car shows all over but mostly at the Jacob Javits Convention where it always took 1st place wins. His Challenger was his most prized possession! Phil lost his life on September 14th 2007 in his STV boat while out with a couple of buddies from Scream and Fly High Performance Power Boat Magazine. Phil's car was sold by his family shortly after his death. The last I had heard about the car was that it was sold at the Borgota Casino in Atlantic City in 2007 at the G. Potter King Car Show. I know this is going to sound crazy as to why I am posting this message here. I woke up out of a dead sleep a couple of weeks ago from a dream I had about Phil, and in that dream he told me to FIND HIS CAR!!! I don't know how many of you believe but this dream was so real...the reason for this post is to just find out what happened to his car. If any of you have or know any information on this car please can you let me know. His car was a one of a kind so it not hard to remember! Thank You so much! as I said this post is for NO other reason but to know what happened to his car...many of you can understand the way Phil was about this car!!!  :angelwings:

Great I found the spot to strut my stuff. After I'm done here I'm going to find where to do some "Bench Racing" yea man - Love it.

My name is Dan & my love for Mopar started back in the late 60's - Saved up all my pennies from the very first day I got my working papers at the tender age of 14. I was simply over my heels in love back then with the 66-67 Chargers & that long fastback & hide-a-way headlights. So
needless to say my first car on the road was a 66 Charger (had a 57 Dodge Coronet before that) In 1972 I bought a brand new Duster 340 &
a 4-speed for the insane price of $2,909.00 - imagine that now.

Current sitting in the garage or I should say garages - is my Turquoise on Turquoise 1964 Plymouth Belvedere station wagon bought out of
Washington State. "1" outer body repaint from back in the 80's & front seat cover - the rest for now is totally original. Current powered by
the old poly 318 - push button automatic. I've already replaced the rear springs & shocks - put in a 3.23 Sure-grip & axles from a 65 B-body.
I scored a 65 - 426 Street Wedge engine that I'm going to rebuild & I'm currently looking for a push button big block transmission case. With
that will be Vintage Air to keep me & the wife cool. Last year I added some new S/S Cragar rims & B.F.G. T/A radials.

Next is my 1968 Plymouth Sport Satellite convertible. Original a 318-2 barrel car - it now sports a complete 68 GTX driveline. The 440 Super Commando was rebuilt to stock specs - transmission was rebuilt with a shift kit & the 3.55 Sure-grip was freshen up. It's had one re-paint in
it's original Dark Green & front seat covers - the rest is all original. I added some new chrome Magnum 500 rims & Red-lines for Coker. Last year I added the correct style GTX chrome exhaust tips & hangers.

3rd in the fleet - is my 70 Challenger SE which after 5 long years still isn't completely done - hence the nickname "Never Done" * I wanted
a HEMI Challenger RT/SE so... bad I decided to build one right on to the must have Dana 60 rear. So in 2004 I took a ride to Carlisle ALL Chryslers & hunted the car corral for a 70 SE. Low & behold I found one, but the owner wanted insane money. So for the next "3" days I
I hung out & walked around until my legs practically fell off. On the last day in the Winner Circle was a Light Green 70 SE - the car looked amazing. After stiking up a conversation with the owner & his wife, who I actually have to thank for her part in the purchase - I bought the
car on the spot. After of course they collected their Award in front of the Grand Stand. The original 318-2 barrel was already gone replaced
by a 440. I immediately took it to the shop & disassembled the entire car & sent it to media blasting - when it returned I was in shock - LOL.
Yea I can laugh about it now, but really wasn't laughing then. It needed "2" quarter panels & a trunk floor. There was patches in the bottom
of both fenders, but I'm happy to say - there was no rust what so ever around the cowl - rear window plug or in either doors. Since this was
back before quality replacement quarter panels, I hunted high & low for NOS units - finding them through for $1,500 each. Fenders were $900 each - trunk floor came via Desert Valley boys. All the chrome was re-plated & all the stainless polished. After all the panels were
replaced, it came off the jig & onto the rotisserie. Color of choice since it was a green car already, was naturally Sublime. Finally came the day
to start reassembly. Super Stock springs from Manicini & a DTS Dana 60 with disc brakes. Hemi K-frame - all new steering & brakes. For a solid year my shop looked like Christmas time with delivery trucks coming in practically every day. While all this was going on, I spent every spare minute looking for the big Hemi. Finally I found a 472cu. that the pervious owner just had rebuilt & was planning on putting into his 65 A990.
Since so... many years had passed & the new Mopar Performance Hemi's where out - he decided to go big, big with a 572cu. & I bought the
other engine. The engine cost me as much as the car itself - but I couldn't have been happier then.

Now enters car #4 - a 69 Dodge Dart Swinger. A friend showed me an ad from a guy in Tupalo, Mississippi of this 69 Swinger with 11,000 original miles for $4,500 * 6 cylinder with radio & hub cap delete. At first I really didn't think much about it, but then I thinking - Hemi Dart.
So I made the call & the guy on the other end with a low & deep southern accent - says son, this car is "Totally" rust free. So with a leap of
faith, I wired him $4,000 & waited patiently for the Dart to arrive. Once on the lift - I couldn't believe my eyes, no rust - nothing, not-da. Plus
to my delight, it ran & ran darn good. So for the last "2" years I've been replacing dried out vinyl - rubber moldings & pitted chrome. Only the
undercarriage needed to be media blasted do to some very light surface patina & I painte the entire undercarriage body color. I went some
S/S springs - 8-3/4 for a 70 Duster with a rebuilt 489 3.23 Sure-grip. All new front end, 099 torsion bars & I fabricated my own Hemi K-frame.
I scored an old Fairbanks Hemi unit & rebuilt that - added a MP 3,800rpm converter. I've replaced all the headlight & tail-light bezels, rear lens.
inner & outer door handles - mirror & had the bumper re-chromed. I found a reconditioned grille at 2011 Carlisle. By now you all have probably guessed what happening next - I'm taking the Hemi out of the Challenger & between the fenders of the Dart. Many are probably asking why & wondering if I've lost my mind. I think a Hemi Darts & Barracudas were the ultimate Mopars & I wanted the "Ultimate Sleeper" I plan on running 185-85-13 white wall tires on plain steel rims with dog dish hub caps & either a shaker hood or early Hemi hood scoop. Full exhaust
to the rear bumper. I'm leaving the car White it's original color & have already redone the B5 / B7 Blue bench seat interior. Left the radio delete plate in place & added a period correct Am/Fm radio under the dash.

For those of you who might be wondering, I had a 1969 steel crank 440 rebuilt for the Challenger. Bored .030 with 11.0.1 Keith Black pistons,
Six Pack rods & heavily worked 906 heads. Haven't picked out a cam yet - but I plan on buy a brand new Six Pack setup from Herbs. Stock reproduction exhaust manifold into the already hung 3" exhaust.

I've come to the Cross Roads now, one of my cars has to go. I've already decided the 64 Belvedere wagon stays - so it's either the Challenger or the 68 Sport Satellite. I figure I'll advertise them both & which ever goes first so be it. I already have the Sport Satellite advertised here &
the Challenger is next. I pulled the Challenger out of storage yesterday & took a few before pictures. Unfortunately all the restoration photos were lost last year when my harddrive fried. I have some before pictures of the Dart & a few of it now that I'll put on - please enjoy.

Post by: spamtank on March 05, 2012 - 07:20:39 PM
First, let me correct an error on my submission to Dave for COTM.  The vinyl top isn't in fact gator grain, so my humble apologies.  It is instead the VF1 full vinyl top.  Between the time I sent my info to Dave and now, I stumbled upon a good comparison of the two.  When I bought the car a few years ago, it was listed as gator grain,  I didn't know any better, but now I do. 

So down to business.

COTM March 2012

1970 Challenger SE
98,500 original miles
Numbers Matching 383 2V engine and 727 Torqueflite transmission
PS, PB with disc brakes up front, AC, 26" radiator, and W23 Road Wheels

Car is about 90-95 percent original.  Little to no rust, and all original sheet metal.  Color was light gold FY4, but was repainted light gold with a faint touch of green that nicely ties the replacement Green vinyl top and green interior.  Interior sports bucket seats, overhead and center console with slapstick shifter, rallye gauges, and a Rimblow steering wheel.  It also has a rear window defroster, and rear speaker.  It's missing the AM/FM radio that it was built with, but I hope to find a replacement for that some day.

Recent work and restoration includes the following:  Updated to XHD Rear Springs, new front end bushings,  ball joints, and new brakes all around.  Rimblow switch replaced, speedometer rebuilt, and clock retrofitted with quartz movement.  The gas tank has also been replaced to take care of a nagging fuel leak.

The car appears to have been purchased in 1973 by the second owner in GA, the 3rd owner purchased the car near Wellford SC in 1982.  The individual I purchase the car from obtained it about 5 years ago and set about cleaning and restoring it.  I purchased the car in Manchester NH, in 2010 (when it turned 40 years old), and I have been steadily working on it since.  I have two nice copies of the broadcast sheet, along with a few other pieces of historical documentation.

We enjoy taking the car out to local cruise nights, and have entered it into two car shows and won a nice plaque and trophy so far.  We look forward to bringing it to Carlisle some time in the near future.






Won a plaque at the Cruisin' Downtown Event - It was a blast.

Second car show I entered won the nice trophy below:







Here are the two copies of the broadcast sheet that the former owner discovered in his files and set to me 9 months after I bought the car. 



Here's an interesting artifact that came with the car.  It's a Consumer braking, acceleration, passing, effectiveness report that is specific to my VIN.  Does anyone have any info on this?  Barry Washington was unfamiliar with this report as was a local mopar enthusiast.  So any insight would be appreciated.









Oh, and here's my first Mopar.  66 Dodge Coronet with the old 318.

Post by: GranCuda1970 on March 11, 2012 - 05:41:11 AM
That's some neat chit man!!

   Maybe' they tested the consumer sheet out on your car 1st or they just had to inform everyone that bought the car of this passing / breaking spec.
Post by: Jamiez on March 11, 2012 - 06:43:14 AM
You mean this document?
As it says this was mandatory on all cars manufactured after jan 1 1970
Post by: spamtank on March 11, 2012 - 09:00:19 AM
Thanks guys.  I've seen a few of these "Consumer Information" reports now.  Just surprised me that my local mopar guy had never seen one.  Rereading Barry Washington's response back to me, he wasn't talking about this particular piece of documentation.

I assume that they didn't test each vehicle, but rather had a sample for that configuration of vehicle.  In my case 383-2V automatic transmission, front disk brakes, bla bla bla...  But since there were so many potential configurations, how did they decide what values to report?  Perhaps they had a table based on weight and horsepower.

Jamiez,  looks like your car is a 360-4V engine.  Did your car come with drum brakes?  Interesting that my 70 with the heavier motor would have a shorter stopping distance.  But drum brakes on your would explain that.

Post by: Jamiez on March 11, 2012 - 10:24:00 AM
It has power front discs.  I'm not sure about the rears as that part of the broadcast sheet is gone.  I don't think drums were an option in 74.

Edit: I double checked the codes.  It's a B41 car so it came from the factory with Power Front Discs and Power Rear Drums

The 74 challenger is actually heavier than your 70. 
In 70 with a V8 the JH23 weighed 3,118 lbs
In 74 with a V8 the JH23 weighed 3,225 lbs

All those bumper reinforcements and other safety equipment packed on the pounds.

Interesting that the failure tests (B and C) the 74 performs better

My Barracuda started out as a '70 Gran Coupe 383 auto. Over the 16 years I've had the car I completely restored the body and interior. The drive train is now a '70 440 with KB pistons, Comp Xtreme Energy cam, roller rockers, Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads and intake, 750 Holley, Mopar Performance electronic ignition, TTI headers, 4 speed and 3.91 sure grip. The wheels are Billet Specialties with 295/45-18 in the rear and 245/45-17 in the front with Wilwood 4 piston disc brakes all around. There seems to be an endless list of things I want to do to the car.

My car is the ORIGINAL (Legally Authenticated) Plymouth Factory Drag Race Team The "GOLDEN COMMANDOS"-"GOLDFISH".It is a 1965 Barracuda with a "STOCK" 273 Commando LA Block and an A-833 Hemi-Ratio New Process Transmission and a 486 8 3/4" Limited Slip Differential.The car has 352.1 original miles. This car was featured in several car mags. over the years including the cover of HOTROD mag. in Feb.'66. This car won the 1965 U.S. Nat.'s F/S class and set a new E.T. Record of 13.40. The car was match raced several times in the '60's and beat such cars as a class "C" gasser Corvair and the original Hemi-Under Glass. I was given this car in June of 1999 in the condition of the first pic. You can barely make out the faded GOLDFISH lettering on the front qtr. panel. The car was completed in Oct. of this year in time to make it to the 12th Annual East Coast Drag Times Hall of Fame Reunion and Car Show where it  was seen in public for the first time in over 40yrs. The Golden Commandos were inducted into the Drag Racing Hall of Fame and out of over 1,000 cars at the show THE "GOLDFISH" won the award for "BEST IN SHOW".  The last pic is with Linda Vaughn "Miss Hurst Shifter".

How is there two years with no new member rides on this thread until recently??
Anyway, finally got the wheels I've wanted for awhile to give the Cudee what I feel is finally the perfect balance of black accents over the red.

The convertible Challenger is a 1970 RT w/ 383/ Auto.  I have owned since 1983. In the beginning it was actually an FK5 color with white top and white longitudinal stripes that was my daily driver and I wore it out and basically parked it. Being in the military I dragged it around various duty stations but never got rid of it. I started working on it on and off in spurts. In 1994, I saw a PCP Challenger convertible (white stripes and top) in a Mopar Mag and fell in love with that color. The original numbers matching engine and tranny are in the car but the engine is rebuilt with a little more ummph. I have retained every original part for the car except for the distributer and the driver side door. In hind sight - I wish I would have kept the door and just did the repair on it - oh well.
Now that I am older; I am leaning toward putting it back to the original FK5 exterior and the matching interior it came with. A 3rd option I am considering is Jazz Blue - white stripes and white top. I will make it a patriotic tribute themed car with the blue back ground.
The other Challenger is a 2013 SRT core. I think the new Challengers are sweet rides. I just didn't like the noisy rides (road noise) of the Camaro and Mustang...not trying to knock our fellow American Muscle cars...I do  think they are awesome cars too.
I just put the17 inch cragers/nittos on my convertible and I thought it would make a cool picture nose to nose.
