So what was the best deal on a Mopar you had to pass up or could not make happen .
I had 2
71 Cuda , 440+6 V code , 4 spd , dana [obviously] , shaker , V3 Hemi orange , billboards , spoiler pkg , Black roof & interior , 15" ralleys , tinted glass , rim blow , Elastomeric bumpers , I am pretty sure it had the AM/FM Cassette it cariied the licence plate , RARE 1.
He called me up & offered it to me for $10K , he wanted to buy a brand new GnX , he sold the car to someone & bought the GnX figuring it would go up in value more than the Cuda !!
The Second deal was an AAR Cuda , it had been converted to a Hemi . the car was an original sublime car had almost all of the parts included to restore it back to an original AAR , the Hemi was a 66 block full roller , cam , rockers etc , it was a full race engine with a 8/71 blower on top , 2 " headers etc making 900+ hp , I could have had everything for $20 k , the engine alone was worth close to that with the race trans etc
I would have put the engine in some other body & rebuilt the Cuda .
Both times I was in a position where I had no extra $$ & could not get financing .
This was another deal I chose to pass up
In the late 70 I was looking for my second E body & really wanted a purple 4 spd R/T Chall , which I did eventually buy & still have . I found an ad for a 71 Hemi Chall red , it was 7500 as I recall , I passed , never liked the 71 Chall & still don't , I do not regret passing that one up even though financially it would have been smart to grab it .
These cars for me have never been about the $$
