This unassuming 1970 Plymouth Cuda is a magazine featured steel rocket that is just as comfortable commuting back and forth to work as it is making passes at the local drag strip.
Restored by Mascar Autobody and Paint in Costa Mesa California, this killer '70 Cuda is a clean west coast car that retains all of its original body panels save for an AAR style fiberglass hood. Its factory straight body was completely covered in a great looking coat of Plum Crazy Purple basecoat/clearcoat and accented with flat black paint on its hood, header panel and horizontal side panels.
Under the hood you'll find a 340 Race X block that has been bored and stroked to 427 cubic inches and features a nasty 13 to 1 compression ratio and roughly 750 horsepower! Inside the massive black hood scoop a huge Holley Dominator 4 barrel carburetor sends 110 octane racing fuel and cool air from a high performance K&N filter into a modified single plane Indy intake. At the sides of that intake, slick looking oval port Indy aluminum heads have been fitted with Ferrea valves, K-Motion valve springs, T&D rocker arms and welded Moroso aluminum valve covers. Inside the block a Mopar performance crankshaft pushes Eagle rods and CP pistons while a custom ground Comp cam pops Comp solid roller lifters and Smith Brothers pushrods. At the back of the motor, an MSD digital 7AL box with two-step launch control sends fire from a Painless wiring harness to a Mallory Unilite distributor and red MSD ignition wires. At the sides of the block, Hooker long tube headers that measure 3.5 inches at the collectors border a custom oil pan with a center link pass through, and in front of the block a custom aluminum radiator carries both an electric fan and a Seatrab transmission cooler.
Underneath this Cuda you'll find more no compromises hardware and professional grade race equipment. A Pro-Trans built 904 3-speed automatic shifts quickly and efficiently while a turbo-Action trans brake and 5,700 stall Continental converter put a wheel stand inducing bite into the cars launches. Out back there's a stalwart Ford 9 inch rear end with an aluminum center section that carries pavement pounding Strange 4.30 gears and tough Moser 35 spline axles. Holding the engine off the ground is a factory torsion bar front suspension that's been upgraded with adjustable QA1 shocks and Wilwood manual disc brakes, and holding the rear end off the ground is Calvert monoleaf springs that are supplemented by adjustable Rancho 1000 shocks, CalTracs traction bars and two more Wilwood manual disc brakes. There's a custom 16 gallon fuel cell out back which sends fuel through a Barry Grant electronic fuel pump, and the massive Hooker headers flow into a vicious sounding ITT three inch Exhaust system that's complete with welded Dynomax mufflers and square stainless tips. At the corners, proven 15 inch aluminum Weld Pro Stars wear 28x4.5 Moroso DS-2 race only front tires and Mickey Thompson 325/50 ET Street radials in the rear.
The interior of this Cuda maintains all of its stock panels and carries the same 'wolf in sheep's clothing' theme as the exterior. During the build a 10-point chrome-moly roll cage that is NHRA certified to 7.99 seconds was built and installed by Bob Miller at BMP in Prescott, Arizona. Inside that cage, you'll find a stock vinyl rear bench and custom front buckets that have been upholstered with correct black vinyl and equipped with four point Simpson race harnesses. Between the seats, the cars original console sits on like-new black carpet and features a correct locking console, buttons for the cars power windows and a Hurst competition ratchet shifter that fits perfectly inside nice looking factory wood applique. In front of the seats, the cars original dash hangs accurate Autometer gauges and sports a large Autometer tachometer with a built in shift light and RPM memory function, and in front of the driver, a simple black Grant steering wheel is wired with a button that retards the cars timing.
Brutally fast yet completely streetable, this awesome '70 Cuda perfectly embodies the Pro Street philosophy.

132665 / 1932 Ford Roadster
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/87gcq6j
This spectacular 1932 Boydster roadster features the absolute best of
everything from its custom pearl flames to its fully chromed 502 Ram jet
engine; and in addition to being a feature car in American Rodder magazine,
has taken home trophies from some of the most exclusive hot rod shows in
Painted and assembled by Chris Tietge's Hot Rod Garage in Lebanon Ohio this
sweet looking Ford is the kind of car that we all dream of owning as kids
and pledge to build as adults. It absolutely nails the often attempted, but
rarely achieved formula of OEM quality good looks and panel fit in a highly
detailed, completely custom package. The straight and smooth body is
covered in a thick coat of vivid GM Torch Red and topped by an amazing
custom pearl flame job courtesy of Wade Hughes from Ohio Flames. It's an
unbeatable combination on a car that is so well done you'll find yourself
walking back to it again and again just to stare and smile.
The cars killer GM Performance Parts Ram Jet 502 includes high efficiency
aluminum heads, an aluminum intake, forged aluminum pistons, forged steel
connecting rods, a forged steel crank, a hydraulic roller cam, a fully
calibrated ECM, electronic fuel injection and a stout 9.6 to 1 compression
ratio that creates 510 horsepower and 565 lb./ft.
of unmatched throttle response. Lighting fires for that massive engine is a
new American Autowire harness that sends power through a GM coil and
distributor to red high performance Taylor plug wires. At the front of the
motor a reusable air filter hangs above a Vintage Air Front Runner
serpentine system that clears the cars radiator mounted electric fan by
about an inch, perfectly displaying the laser precision executed throughout
this build. Aesthetically, the car has been completely finished for show
with all of its ancillary components like the chrome alternator, chrome AC
compressor, polished valve covers, coated long-tube headers and braided
hoses still looking brilliant and the simple and uncluttered engine bay
appearing more like industrial sculpture than a functioning automobile.
The cars custom-built frame was supplied by Boyd Coddington and consists of
a heavily tapered chassis that is reinforced by tubular cross members. A
polished Heidt's style front suspension features stainless steel upper and
lower control arms, chrome QA1 coil-over shocks, a Flaming River manual
steering rack and Wilwood performance brakes with drilled rotors and chrome
calipers. The cars polished Corvette inspired independent rear suspension
features inboard Wilwood disc brakes with polished calipers, two more
polished QA1 coil overs and a cool finned differential cover. Exhaust is handled by a custom fabricated and
completely polished oval Exhaust
system that includes stainless Hushpower mufflers, and a 6-speed manual
transmission that was transplanted from an LT4 Corvette provides motivation
via a body matched driveshaft and pavement shredding 3.73 gears. At the
corners of the car, 16 inch front and 18 inch rear Boyd Coddington wheels
wear 205/50 and 255/45 Z-rated Goodyear radials.
You can credit Steve Holcomb at Pro Auto Custom Interiors for this
roadster's stunning, show-stopping interior. Covered in high quality cream
leather, the bucket seats were custom fabricated just for this car and the
overall design is simple and effective. At the floor, a custom cream
console flows from the dash to the middle of the seats and houses a GM
6-speed shifter, controls for the cars Vintage Air HVAC system and buttons
for the power windows. At the sides of the seats, custom cream door panels
flow around great looking billet door handles, and at the bottom of the
seats high-end tan wool carpeting sits below chrome pedals and thick tan
mats. In front of the driver, a painted tilt steering column is topped by a
custom Boyd Coddington steering wheel, and the painted dash is equipped
with a Billet Specialties aluminum panel that holds reliable Classic
Instruments gauges. Behind the cockpit you'll find a fully finished trunk
that perfectly matches the cream interior and hides a Secret Audio AM/FM
Designed by Chip Foose, sourced by Boyd Coddington, powered by factory
developed GM technology, assembled to exceptionally high standards with top
notch components and coated in custom paint, this Ford literally HAS IT

Launch RPM Limit
Here I try to find out how far I can set the RPM limiter for launching the
car. Turns out that the 2500 RPM that I had it set to was already at the
very limits of the holding power of the brakes.
1970 Plymouth Barracuda
Lance Lambert of The Vintage Vehicle Show is in Jamul, California talking
to Lee Smith about his 1970 Cuda.
1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda - Fast & Furious 6 Cars
1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda - Fast & Furious 6 Cars. Visit:
Some cars are just too nice to send flying through the air to a crunching
doom. Take this 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda, which is wicked awesome from the
air cleaner atop its stupendous 540-cubic-inch (8.8-liter) old-school Hemi
to the all-independent rear suspension. So how did this stunning machine
find itself amid the destruction of Fast & Furious 6?
Simple. It isn't a movie car.
Instead, this showcar was borrowed from a collection called Autotopia that
happens to be located in a building directly across the alley from picture
car coordinator Dennis McCarthy's shop. It is owned by Erik Davis, who is
president of RT Specialty Insurance in Los Angeles and who races a Mustang in the Pirelli World
Challenge series under the Always Evolving Performance (AE Performance)
It's only seen in the final shots of the film, when Dominic Toretto's ad
hoc family gathers together at a house familiar to hard-core Fast & Furious
fans going back to the original 2001 film, The Fast and the Furious. So
there was no need to build duplicates.
Sorry, is that a spoiler? Really? You didn't know that Dom survives to the
end and winds up in a bitchin' Mopar?
The Real Thing
Built by Dave Salvaggio of Salvaggio Automotive Design in Port Washington,
Wisconsin, this 'Cuda is overstuffed with virtually every trick known to
Mopar man. But those tricks are all subtle. Like the instrumentation that
is set into a carbon-fiber panel and uses white faces, but retains the
original font and design of each gauge. And then there's the pistol-grip
shifter atop the Tremec six-speed manual transmission that has been remade
in carbon fiber — as if it were for a much better gun.
Even the leather-covered seats are Mopar parts. Swiped as they are from a
But what's not subtle is the engine. That's an Arruzza-built,
aluminum-headed elephant engine capped by twin four-barrel carburetors. It
incorporates a beautifully machined and polished aluminum plate on the
front that uses a single serpentine belt to drive the alternator, A/C
compressor and power steering pump. And the entire engine bay is so
heartbreakingly beautiful it makes you want to rip off the car's hood.
Likely the single most ambitious element in this car is the suspension. The
front suspension's original torsion bars and A-arms have been dumped in
favor of fabricated pieces and coil-over shocks.
Out back, the crummy leaf springs have vanished. In their place is a Jaguar
center section with inboard Wilwood disc brakes and fabricated links that
form a robust structure. There should be a hole in the trunk floor to
provide better views of it.
There's nothing that isn't interesting about the 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda.
And nothing that's been left untouched.
Thanks to 235/45R17 front and 305/45R18 rear Nitto red-striped tires on
Fikse wheels, this Plymouth Barracuda has a slight rake and its nose is
almost burrowing into the ground. There are many subtle body modifications
(like re-contoured wheelwells) but, again, the whole car is constrained by
a respect for Mopar heritage.
So while it's Hemi powered, it's actually decorated like the 340-powered
AAR 'Cuda that was built to homologate components for SCCA Trans Am road
racing. The big engine seems to almost be bursting up into the cavity made
by the AAR hood scoop. That's kind of cool. But not as truly icy as the
AAR-inspired dual side Exhausts that
exit just below each door's trailing edge.
The mix of gloss and matte black paint is sinister, consistent with the
'Cuda's themes, and intensely badass.
While the 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda's appearance in Fast & Furious 6 is
basically a cameo, Fast & Furious 7 is already in production and aiming for
a summer 2014 release. If that movie picks up where this one lets off, this
'Cuda (and/or its stunt-ready clones) is sure to show up then.
