Another newbie from New Mexico
« on: August 12, 2011 - 12:15:11 am »
Greetings, I am a long time mopar guy. Been over at moparts.com since about it's inception. I am currently assembling my 1972 340 4spd Cuda. It's a factory FE5 Rallye Red car with Black top and side stripes, and the V21 (blackout) hood performance treatment option. Since the car was a cuda and came with the G36 color keyed racing mirrors and was one of the 5 colors designated, it also came standard with a color keyed grille..... the attached pic is another car equipped like mine and was a great inspiration to to motivate the build
