1971 Cuda - Alex's Build


Mission - transform 71 318 Cuda to a 426 Hemi Powered dream vehicle for Alex.

Challenge:  Lots of rust means complete rebuild.   A tree also fell on left rear of roof. Fortunately unibody is solid.  Follow along as Alex, Shawn, Chester, Gordy and crew transform to an immaculate hemi powered muscle car!

Plan:  remove all outer sheet metal, media blast "carcass", repair/replace metal.  All outer sheet metal will be replaced along with cowl, both "A" pillars and "B" pillars, left front floor pan, trunk pan, etc.   Once metal work done, we'll install a date code 1968 426 Hemi, 6 speed Tremec trans and Reilly Motorsports RMS AlterKtion coil-over front suspension and Street-Lynx rear suspension.   Lots of customization along the way.  Final color will either be orange or red with a flat black billboard and shaker hood.
