Been waiting years for this, the guy is a personal friend of the family and is an absolute artist w/ old Mopars....just to give you an idea, his 70' AAR Cuda & his 70' SuperBird he restored were purchased by Chrysler and placed in their museum in Detroit :) Looks like this purple pig may see the light of day finally! Suppose to go in in January...then my old man and I will put her together ( he is like a Paulie with Mopars ). Sorry, I'm just excited and had to tell someone :D ...I'm tired of starring at this car on the lift!

Me too Mark! But I must admit, my 1st priority is to go racing this Spring w/ the Magna boys...and i am on a mission to do just that & prepping Satan in a serious fashion...can't wait till this Spring! So the 'Cuda may get back burnered on getting put back together until the season is over....or I blow up :D

The car is a shell right now guys so pictures wouldn't be very appealing unless you want to see purple metal :)
when I get it back it will be a beautiful shell then I will put it back together and gladly take pictures.

I had money on one of these till the GN came out in 86/87. 1970 Cuda, 440+6 , Shaker hood , rubber bumpers , red with black interior, automatic, 4.10 dana rear. 30,000 original miles . My dad thought 8 grand was toooo much $ for that old car and talked me into a new one. Gee, do I regret that or what ???
Dummy me same guy also had a Hemi Cuda convertible . Um lets see 14K for it unrestored? Way too much for me in 87 yet I bought my GN for $15600. Turned out documented 1st Hemi Cuda conv built . Magazine test car ,red on red, couple million $ now . And it was 5 miles from my house and for sale .....regrets !!!!!!

I'm fortunate to have my Father still around...he can put this car back together blind-folded Mark, this is his poison!

My experience is pictures before the finished product are so valuable. You look at them once the car is on the road and say "WOW"!!! I can't believe this is what it looked like. I still look at my GMC and Thomas' Ramcharger pics and appreciate the work and $$$$ put into them.
