1973 Plymouth 'Cuda by Bryan B

Submitted via 440'S PlymouthBarracuda.net

 

 

This Cuda was finally done after a year long restoration two years ago. When it was purchased it was factory brown which was changed to the Electric Blue that it is now. It has won several 1st place awards and 3 Best Mopar awards, the car has only not won in its class one time and that was at a "Best of the Best" invitational show.

Body Work
Most of the rear end had to be replaced due to a poor patch job done by its previous owner. New rear quarters were welded in along with inner and outer rear fender wells. A new inner taillight panel had to be
fabricated as well.

After a lengthy search a better grill was found and replaced. Both front and rear bumpers were re chromed. New door panels, body plugs and bumpers, hood pad, dash, rear dash, many more items were also replaced.

Goodyear Polyglass tires, factory style rims, center caps and trim rims finish the job. The previous owner added the eyebrow spoilers and rear gull wing. They belong on a 70 or 71 but I like them so they stayed.

Engine Work
Engine was rebuilt by my Dad. New cam, crank, piston, rings, bearings ect. added Hooker Comp. Headers.

Future Plans
To replace the 318 motor with a 440 Super Commando crate engine.
