Here is a 21st century AAR Cuda with all the options! This car started life as a "U" code 440 4barrel automatic 1970 Cuda. I wanted to build a top shelf pro-touring Cuda that would win national shows and be dependable enough to survive the Hot Rod Power Tour. I was lucky enough to do both and then some. This car won the 2006 Mopar Nationals and has been featured in Hot Rod (twice), Popular Hotrodding, Super Rod, Mopar Action and Crazy Ray's Auto Pages. The car was also shown 4 times on Hot Rod TV's coverage of the 2006 Power Tour. Copies of all the magazines and a dvd of the show are all included with the car. The car has been appraised for over $225,000. I have every receipt and tons of build photos.
The car was media blasted and epoxy primed before any of the modifications began. There is absolutely NO rust anywhere on the car. Underneath the car was smoothed and looks just as good as the top. Any bolt on the car that could be stainless, is stainless, which is about 99.9%. The rear bumper was cut down and molded into the body. The tag was shaved from the rear panel and now retracts from the lower valance. The trunk lock and door handles were shaved and now operate with remote poppers. The doors have Lambo hinges which draws people to the car like bees on honey. They open like a normal door would but then you can raise them if you like. The hood opens via an Electric-Life power reverse opening hood kit. The firewall and floorboard were fabricated to accept the viper engine, trans and interior. There are fender skirts that cover everything in the engine bay except for the engine. I didn't have a picture of the engine bay complete for some reason. I will take one asap and can email it to any prospective buyers.
The engine is a 1998 Viper GTS V-10 that had 3500 miles on it. I added a Roe Racing polished supercharger with a water/methonal injection kit. This set up adds 10 pounds of boost on 93 octane fuel and the engine makes 800 horsepower. I also added larger polished throttle bodies, roller rockers and polished valve covers. The Viper 6 speed was upgraded with and aluminum flywheel, Centerforce clutch and a Hurst short throw shifter. The rear is a sure grip Dana 60 with 3.73 gears. You are turning 2000rpms at 85 mph in 6th gear and around 4000rpm at 170mph. I believe the car would top 200 mph if you have the nerve.
The front suspension consists of a Mangum Force tubular K-frame and control arms. The rear suspension is a polished stainless four link. Air Ride technologies Shockwaves were used front and rear with a digital controller. The engine was moved back and the weight ratio for the car front to rear is 50/50. It handles as well as anything you could imagine. It has 13" Wilwood disc with slotted and drilled rotors on front and 12" Wilwood disc on back. A hydro boost power brake system was used.
Most of the interior is from a ' 98 Viper. The seats and door panels are accented with a silver viper skin leather. Every inch of the interior was covered with Dynamat Xtreme which makes for a cool and quiet ride. Heat and air system is from Vintage Air. The car has a cd/dvd player with 3 different screens and the audio has two amps and 6 speakers.
The paint is House of Kolor's Tangelo with some more pearl added, viper silver and black. The underneath is painted black.
The wheels are Billet Specialties - 18"x10" on rear and 17"x8" on front with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.

Plymouth : Barracuda base 1970 Plymouth Barracuda Coupe project car
From WikipediaThe Plymouth Barracuda is a two-door car that was manufactured by the Plymouth division of the Chrysler Corporation from 1964–1974. The first-generation Barracuda, a fastback A-body coupe based on the Plymouth Valiant, had a distinctive wraparound back glass and was available from 1964–1966. The second-generation 1967–1969 Barracuda, though still Valiant-based, was heavily redesigned. Second-generation A-body cars were available in fastback, notchback, and convertible versions.
