I use to think these Hemi powered beasties were territorial - sticking close to home and defending their part of the reef from all comers. But I've come to find out that these beasties are actually quite far ranging and you never really know where you might come upon one.
Case in point, remember that feel good story about Koby and his search for his Dad's long lost TA? Koby eventually found his Dad's TA at "Kenny's Automotive - in Tokyo Japan of all places! The proprietor of Kenny's Automotive is Kenji Okazaki. For those that followed NHRA drag racing in the 1990's, you will remember that Kenji use to drive Big Jim Dunn's Mooneyes Funny Car. Although Kenji doesn't drive fuel Funny Cars anymore, he's still involved with American muscle cars and has more than one Hemi in his garage to include this one ...
BS23R1B166080 is 1 of only 118 1971 HemiCuda''s ever made. 1 of only 107 made for the U.S. market, and of those 1 of 59 with a 4-speed. It is finished in GY3 Curious-Yellow (the first pic doesn't look it, but that is Curious-Yellow) with V6X black "billboard" stripes and a SRX9 black leather interior. And just in case you thought it may be a clone, here is a pic of the fender tag on Kenji's car
From it's Fender Tag we can see that this HemiCuda came equipped with the A01 Light Group Package, A22 Elastomeric Front and Rear Bumpers Package, A34 Super-Track-Pack 4:10 geared Dana Axle Package, A62 Rallye Gauges Package, B51 Power Disc Brakes, G36 painted Sport Mirrors J81 Go-Wing and the V6X black "billboard" stripes among other things. Sweet!!
Thanks Koby for not only bringing your Dad's TA back with you, but these pics of Kenji's awesome Curious-Yellow HemiCuda too!
