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.

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

Racepumps Mechanical Fuel Pump Evaluation
I finally got to the track. I needed to find out if the mods I had done to
my fuel system would enhance the performance of the RacePumps mechanical
fuel pump. The short answer is YES! This is what I did. First I modified
the original fuel tank with a sump and two 1/2" pipe nipples. There is
another 1/2" pipe nipple, on the driver's side of the tank, facing the leaf
spring near the top corner (towards the axle). This one is used as a vent
to allow air to enter the tank when fuel is being used. The original pick
up in the tank, through the sending unit is used as a return line. I had
mine modified before with two 3/8" steel lines silver soldered in and to a
steel #8 AN fitting which now hooks up to my 1/2" return line. At the
engine, I'm using a Barry Grant 4 Port Regulator which is the Dead Head
type. I have a tunnel ram. So I used the 1/8" gauge port and got a fitting
for 1/8" pipe to #6 AN male, then adapter from #6 AN female to #8 AN male.
This hooks up to a 90 degree hose end #8 AN to #8 hose . The hose hooks to
a 1/2" Aluminum line back to the tank. I threaded the inside of the 1/8"
pipe connector that threads into the regulator and used a brass set screw
and drilled it for a 0.060" hole and threaded the set screw in. This is the
bleed hole for the return line allowing constant fuel flow. I had No fuel
pressure issues. No vapor lock. No fuel related issues at all. The pump
supplied fuel to the carbs at 6.5 psi at the end of the 1/4 mile every
pass. Be sure you put a good flowing inline fuel filter between the tank
and the pump! I used a mesh screen style filter from Russel. Has #8 AN male
ends and a 40 micron screen.
So I'm very happy with the results and if you buy this pump, it will work
but you must have a return line of at least 1/2" and a good size vent in
your tank. Just do it.
