Uducant, does your black paint stop where this cars does?


I'm really liking the stripe with the black top, hood treatment and painted grill and mirror.
That's a pretty cool look for sure!

No I stopped the black paint higher up.  I don't believe his is correct. message me where you found the car please. I'd like to see if I can get tag and build sheet infor from it. Since he took liberties with the engine color, air cleaner and exhaust (built to his taste)  maybe he also added certain options?

I'd be very surprized if the B5 blue one is even a BS23 car....It's missing all the standard "Cuda" moldings. Belt moldings, wheel lip moldings, rocker moldings... :2cents:

  The linked post photos all appear to be ones I have filed away from the net and added to that post ;D

Cuda Hunter the Yellow ebay car neither shows a V21 or G36 code. Tag appeared full we'd need to see the build sheet.  Notice there's EN2 shown on the tag, and the V21 would have been right after the R11.

The painted grille is not a V21 thing but was coupled with the G36 painted mirror option, if the car was a Cuda in certain specified colors.

According to the tag it was a G37 Chrome mirror car.

If I'm not mistaken it's missing a 2nd data tag note the attached hemi Cuda tags, I believe the last code indicates the next tag....

Ya its missing its second tag. Love the look of these cars!

Alan raises a good point, the grille is also incorrect      My car has all the same trim as the B3 vinyl top 340 4spd car I just haven't finished it/installed it yet

 ;D Blaine Kelly's old Cyber Cuda, last known at Bob Malcom Dodge in Ohio and for sale. Car is coded for V21 but actually came with G35 O/S Lh remote chrome mirror...hence no painted grille

These are all cool looking `Cuda's, i like that Tan car too, shame it has not got a Tan grille in it. But they are all a very striking colour combination. :2thumbs:

The painted grille was only on Cuda models in certain colors (I posted the chart earlier in this thread), with the G36 mirrors  colors were EV2 Tor Red , EB3 Basin Street Blue,FE5 Rallye Red, GB5 True Blue metalic,FY1Lemon Twist, and GF7 Sherwood green however it appears that a Sherwood green Cuda would not have come with the body color mirrors...additionally a GY8 Gold leaf metallic car could have the mirrors but not the grille?
