    Thanks John

    The C body 8-3/4 I bought came with the open 2:76 gear

    Just decided to go with the 3:55 last week. May go to a
    sure grip somewhere down the road. Car will be not be used on
    the strip...just a street and open road cruiser so I may
    not need the sure grip.

    I think you're gonna need traction on the street too!

    someday I'd like to drop a built 360 into the van and really go to town with it. but thats a long ways off. its got far bigger issues to deal with first

    Those mp valve covers look good, thought about getting them. but ended up putting the stock stamped leakers back on for now.

    Is that a daul plane manifold, never seen one like that. Also is it a fastback or hard top. I'm a Cuda lover from the day the first one was built in 64.

    That looks like an Edlebrock Air Gap Performer RPM. Nice choice for a healthy street driven small block. Whose good looking big block is that in the background of your engine pictures? Billet MSD Distributor was pretty good $ on it.

    It is a fastback. The intake is an Eddy Air Gap.

    Car will be black with red seats and door panels. Will have 15"
    steel wheels with redline rires and dog dish hub caps. Hood is
    an AAR fiberglass with the Hemi 'Cuda scoop.


    This is the 'Cuda when I went to pick it up:



    The tti exhaust system:



    New disc brake set-up on the front:



    New seat covers from Legendary:



    AAR hood and scoop:



    Re-plated dash bezel:



    Huge C body rear brakes:

    That's correct on the intake. The big block belongs to another
    customer. It was a 383 that has been bored and stroked to
    490 cubes.


    My 360 will also have the billet MSD distributor with the 6 AL box
    and MSD wires and Blaster 2 MSD coil.

    Since you used C Body rear drums (and converted axles) just like we did on our 440 Duster, it looks like you also swapped to the '73 and up A Body front disc brakes to get the 4.5" bolt pattern all around. That's the way we did it and the hot set up. It also allows you to upgrade to the 11.75" rotors from the later B-Body.

    That is going to be one beautiful cuda. The 67's are quite sharp. I always like the interiors of those cars cause or the real chrome and metal and attention to more detail than you see today.. Well sort of. With that 360 that car ought to scream.. For traction you ought to be able to get a good limited slip for that 8 3/4 for less than 300 bucks.. Its not like our fwd's where there isn't even remotely the volume sold to drive the cost down. Old skool mopar for the win, the investment, and the grin on your face when you launch it sideways drifting style through the intersection!

    I used the Master Power Brake kit for the front brake set-up as
    I needed the later UCA to get the larger ball joints. (Car will have
    manual brakes and steering)

    How much Vasoline does it take to put a 440 in a Duster? I've seen
    big block A bodies but it must be a lot of work to make it happen.

    Very nice, We are hoping to have the 340 back in my dad's 69 Formula S by May 1st.
    The TTI Exhaust just showed up and man those headers are pretty. We are hoping for around 400hp on pump gas. His is going to be hid under stock valve covers and air cleaner and we painted the intake to try and hide it too. The only real give away will be the exhaust.
    Is that an Edlebrock Air gap intake that you have on there?

    man 67-69 cudas are beautiful cars. I miss the 69 formula S I used to have now. I'll never be able to afford another one.
