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.

These are my E-bodies. The T/A has been in the family 14 years. The '74 I have owned 17 years. We got the conv. 5 years ago. My first Challenger was a new '71 at the age of 18. Just a base 318, FE5 with white top and interior, but I loved that car.

This is my 72 & all its pieces as of 12-27-07. It had a 360 & a 904 slap in it, when I got it. The 360 will be back in after reworking, but with a 727. beyond that, stay tuned.

My '70 Challenger R/T. Currently under-going a heart transplant. Bought in Dec.04. Auto, 3.55 rear screw. The 440-SIXPACK engine was sold to fellow member FY1443433. Currently in the process of building a 482 c.i. HEMI stroker. 10- 1/2 to 1 compression, Mopar performance aluminum heads, cross-ram with 2-770 holleys. Camshaft undecided yet, but will be a roller. New 4.25 std. bore Mopar Performance block. 4.25 stroker crank. Color is J-5 lime-light green. (sublime) I hope to have it running in '08, but it's a very expensive project. :grinyes:

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!
