Long time Cuda owner
« on: August 04, 2005 - 07:26:52 pm »
I ran across this site last night and I think that it ROCKS.
Been playing with Mopars for 35 years on and still counting.
Here is a picture of my 74 Cuda with a little engine swap.

Thanks everyone for the great welcome to the site. Here is a little more info on the car. The exterior color is Frosty green matallic and it is the origional factory paint and white stripe. The interior is Jade green with the wood grain factory rally dash. I purchased the car from a good friend of mine years ago which is the origional owner of it. He bought this car after I gave him a ride in my 73 Cuda and he treated it like a family member it never saw bad weather like snow. The car only has 78,000 miles on it and the new 440-6 engine and trans only has 800 miles on them so far. When I put the new drive train in it, I also put a 1968 B-Body rear end with SS Springs and 3:91 gears in it also. My wife purchased the Keystone rims for it three yeards ago for a Christmas Preasent to me. I had Keystone rims on my first Cuda when I was dating her in the early 70's. She says that this way You will have the Rims that we liked so much back them. But I did show her a picture of them in a magizine with the rim sizes under ligned. Can you say Hint!!

Thanks again everyone. Here are a few more pictures of the car. The side view is not good beacuse the digital camera did a bad job with the white stripe lines. They are straight and smooth. I thought that this side shot showes how much ground clearance the TTI Headers and TTI exhaust pipes have.
The dash shot showes the clean install on the CD player and O2 gauge.
