The Cuda gets a new cage in Feb to replace the one installed in 1988. Still trying to decide on a power plant. Leaning towards a 540 w/a F2
or a 540 w/B1's.
This will probably be a 2018-2019 build. Lol

Remove my 547 wedge from my sons car, remove the heads and put them onto his 440 and fit it to his car.
Refresh the 547 short.
Remove my 528 wedge from the Cuda, remove the heads and give them a rebuild with new springs and locks.
Fit the heads to the 547 and fit into the Cuda with new convertor.
Refresh 528 and wrap it up.
Fabricate molly cage for the Cuda.

65 Plymouth Satellite to do some bracket racing with. 506 wedge with Victor maxwedge and solid roller.Shooting for 10.0s The chassis is being done now. Plan is a narrowed Dana with Caltracs and mono springs. Once that is completed and ready it's on to the driveline. Hope to have it ready for shakedown passes this year and turn my daughter loose in it at some point. She has some time left to Jr. race so we aren't in a hurry.

Well I guess I can finally show the mostly finished product. It started life and one of Rick Jones personal Pro Stockers. It was only run at a couple races before they went back to GM stuff. Was raced by Art Hodges for a couple years after that then was sold and sat for years til I acquired it in 2014. We stripped the three paint jobs from its pro stock days car down to bare carbon and chassis. We also removed all the wiring from the car and started over. Been a long long road with only being able to work on it when I'm in Vegas. We moved to DC in the end of 2014 as well. So work has been slow to say the least. The car is now pretty much done and ready to go. We spent a lot of time dropping weight out of it where we could. It is all Carbon and has some titanium components on it as well. The engine has been another pain to say the least and it is apart again having the heads redone by Slawko and will have a new HRE intake built when the heads are done. The back to the dyno a quick look inside and back in the car. Hope to have it out by summer when we come back to Vegas permanently when the wife retires from the USAF..

Anyway here she is. I am sure the paint is a love it or hate it thing. My sons kind of came up with the design in a combined effort deal. Hopefully it will run ok, if I don't sell the Mopar power plant and jump ship. Anyway hope some like it. Sorry about the mess in the garage, I'm not home much and we seem to have a car in there all the time for chassis stuff smile

Plan to have my renewed 68 Cuda back out early in the year. Over the past 2 yrs I have almost completely redone the whole car. I started with replacing the 8 3/4 and suspension with an aftermarket 9", new aluminum driveshaft, new suspension and a new set of slicks. I also removed all of the stock front suspension and built new K member setup for installation of Lamb struts, Pinto rack & pinion steering and Centerline spindle mount wheels. The power plant is my NA 413ci Xblock converted to a basically new blower motor. Using the Xblock and my 3.91 crank I have new Large Port Commando heads, new Racetec pistons on Lentz rods. Intake is a Offenhauser blower manifold with a 6-71 sitting on it. For fuel delivery I have a Hilborn bugcatcher injection which I have set up for E85. Didn't do anything to the JW Powerglide trans except change it's location a little over an inch.

One of the biggest challenges was determining location and designing mounts for hilborn fuel pump, vacuum pump, alternator and the CSI electric water pump. I had it all mocked up and then decided to go to the strut front end which required use of a motor plate. That required redo of all the mounting plans for the front of the engine. I've got it all figured out now and should be ready in Feb or March.

I bought a 68 Barracuda F/SA Stock Eliminator car that has been sitting for a decade. Been going through it, cleaning it up, all new wiring, new fuel system, carpet, seats, painting etc. I will run it some this year with a 360/380 crate motor while going through and building a 340 for it to be run in stock again.

Day 1

Removed the old stickers

Trunk

360/380 crate motor with a few upgrades. Repainted engine bay

I'm hoping to take the Cuda out a few times this year, considring adding a 150 shot to it, that's why I'm pondering ordering a Dana to repalce the 8.75.
I'm just finishing my '69 Valiant sleeper, should be fun to drive, plan to drive it to the track, should go high 11's/low 12's on the motor.

Better get rid of that JW wheel. The one I had in my Lebaron shed the starter ring and nearly sawed the passenger side frame rail in two. The "Wheel" was only a couple years old as well.
