This striking '71 'Cuda pro-tourer, with its 605 cubic inch Hemi V8, fully
custom suspension and sleek leather interior, is perfect for the muscle car
fan who wants the best of absolutely everything!
The beneficiary of a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed
by the owners of Lakeside Rods and Customs in Rockwell City, Iowa, this
slick Plymouth super star features a seamless custom appearance that's
highlighted by an immaculate coat of matte-finish paint. The team's plan
was to create a car that was unlike anything they'd ever built. And this
gnarly pro-tourer, decked in PPG Dark Titanium, detailed in a striking
combination of black, orange and silver, and finished in PPG Flex N' Flat
clear, ended up the perfect cross between a '70s drag car and a modern
When this sinister 'Cuda rumbled into the showroom, it caused such a
commotion that our entire staff came out of their offices just to check it
out. And when we lifted the hood and found a 605 cubic inch Indy Street
Legend Hemi that produces an amazing 850 horsepower and a stunning
790 lb./ft. of torque, we certainly weren't disappointed! At the top of
that Maxx aluminum block, a custom shaker forces wind through a reusable
filter element into a giant King Demon carburetor that's cinched to a
ported intake and fresh stainless fuel lines. At the sides of that intake,
Indy 426 heads, which have been fitted with high quality roller rockers and
clean stainless valves, hang slick orange covers over an Indy-supplied
rotating assembly that includes Wiseco 10.75 to 1 pistons, Eagle H-beam
connecting rods, a Callies 4340 crank, ARP bolts and a Comp roller cam. At
the sides of that rotating assembly, black long-tube headers swirl spent
gases into a rowdy true dual Exhaust
system. At the front of those headers, a familiar Billet Specialties Tru
Trac system spins a chrome Powermaster alternator above a polished Billet
Specialties power steering pump. And the big motor's fires are lit by a
Painless Wiring harness that utilizes an MSD 6AL ignition system to spark
an MSD coil, a color-keyed MSD Pro-Billet distributor and high performance
MSD plug wires.
Behind that high-octane engine, you'll find a TCI-supplied Powerglide
that's wrapped in a Reid Racing case. That stalwart 2-speed spins a custom
driveshaft that's hooked to a Ford nine inch Traction-Lok rear end, tall
3.73 gears and Strange 31-spline axles. As you can probably tell from our
pictures, that rock-solid drivetrain is suspended by a custom Art Morrison
MaxG chassis that's fitted with a Corvette C6 front clip, a Corvette C6
sway bar, a Watt's Link rear clip and Strange coil over shocks. And power
flows to the pavement through a slick set of custom Intro wheels that spin
245/40ZR18 and 335/30ZR20 Pirelli P Zeros around chrome lug nuts and
Inside this stunning Mopar you'll find a completely custom interior that's
tight, technological and in excellent condition. The firm seats,
custom-stitched suede and leather units that are equipped with RCI Camlock
harnesses, feel comfortable enough to spend a sunny afternoon in. In front
of those seats, a custom, Lakeside-built dash hangs a sweet set of Classic
Instruments Velocity gauges above Large Rockford Fosgate speakers and small
Rockford Fosgate tweeters. And the car's driver stays connected to the road
via a painted tilt steering column that's complete with stylized stalks and
a sporty Momo Nero wheel.
In summary, this killer Plymouth pro-tourer represents creative engineering
at its very finest, combining stunning design and execution with
no-excuses, no-limits performance. Call, click or visit
