Engine: 340 stroked to 416
This member purchased this car in 2004! Came factory in Basin Blue and featured a 318 and automatic trans. The plan was to build a 4 link rear suspension, upgrade the front suspension, convert to a 4 speed, build a stoker motor and do a lot of fabrication! The car will be painted in Sublime and will have the AAR front black out with Cuda tips through the valance exhaust. The interior will be black and somewhat stock looking. The idea is to make a slightly upgraded version of an AAR just without It the AAR stripes. Some details are 340 stroked to 416 (MRL kit, TTI headers, Edelbrock RPM heads, Crane cam and lifters) EFI 6 barrel (F&B) A833 23 spline Homemade hydraulic clutch, Reinforced 8 3/4 with 3.55 gears! Awesome!

This is an original 1970 Challenger RT, 440 4V AT, AC, 6 way seats, Front Disc brakes, PS, 3:55 track pack California car. It was originally painted Go Mango Orange with longitudinal RT stripes! The current engine is a date coded 440 and 727 rebuilt to near factory specs but with an Edelbrock cam and Schumacher Tri-Y headers, DC electronic ignition and Mopar 6 pack. The car has Firm Feel Stage III steering box, FR idler and Pitman arms, PST bushings and homemade sub frame connectors. Certainly turns heads everywhere it goes!

Model: Cuda
Engine: 520 Stroker
71 Barracuda. Originally a 318 2bbl car in b5 blue. Now I have a 520 cu in stroker with a original aluminum 6bbl intake and repo carbs, massaged 440 source aluminum heads, 4 bolt main caps, 11:1 cr, roller rocker, roller lifter. Dyno'd at 550 hp and 640 ft lbs! The paint is chrysler electric blue (I call it Blue Bayou) and the rust free arizona body is stock appearing with Cuda' trim. It took me 3 years of wrenching and more to get it tuned in. What a great car!
