Finally finished the cuda

Well, I said that I wouldn't post pictures of the whole thing until I could drive it. Today was the first day I took it out in 2 months and even longer that I've driven it more than a mile.


















battery is for a Honda civic, it's the only one that would fit with that radiator in there.




Can't wait to drive this thing and race it against the Cimprice. :D

When you kept talking about a cuda, I kept thinking that you meant one of the 70s cuda's, not the older ones. That is really cool!

Thanks guys. I'm glad everyone isn't hating on it despite this being the IMPALA forums.

Oh, you mean the 1950 62 series 4 door with a 472 from a 71 Fleetwood? I can get more pictures of it if you want as I haven't really taken any of it since it got painted.











Took this a few years ago, before we had to rebuild it. It now sounds different and by different I mean better.

Nice Job, and fun to drive too I bet.
You gonna put a fan shroud on it ?
Might overheat in traffic etc.


That 90,000 lb caddy is cool
Personally I liked the photos of it flat black

Love the Cuda.
Very nice job.
Are those disk brakes?
How did you put disk brakes all the way around? Kit?
A class 3 hitch on a 50 Caddy.
From Texas. Oh that explains it.
I'm a betting at one time there was a horse trailer on the back of that Caddy.
Again nice job.

NICE! LOVE the way the Cuda turned out! You gonna jack up the back? I know thats old school, and for straight racing only, but I bet it would look fanTAStic! Level and lowered a bit would be awesome too. That Caddy is GREAT! You KNOW we'd like more pics!! inside and out....of BOTH cars!

Thanks, eventually. once I have money. where the engine is has been painted, but where all the wiring hasn't yet. I will be getting a Painless or Ron Francis wiring kit for it and I'll do it then.

Thanks but probably not, I haven't driven it in traffic yet but so far it's only gone above 190 when sitting for 20 minutes at a time. It's got a massive radiator so I shouldn't have a problem with that. If it needs one I'll put one on. I thought it was kinda cool too but my dad prefers gloss over flat. He's into cars that can go down the freeway at 80 mph at 2000 rpm (eventually) rather than lowriders. I'm kinda into that too, I want something that'll go like hell down a road course rather than a dragstrip. And for that I'm willing to sacrifice ride quality for handling sake.

Yes, the fronts are from a 74 Scamp and the rears I bought from a guy (Dr. Diff) in Montana who is a mopar differential guru. It was 525 for both rear brakes and 100 for the new emergency brake cables. I had to change the spindles, lower ball joint, and put a shim (also bought from Dr. Diff) on the top ball joint so I could reuse it as the ball joints that were originally on that spindle were bigger. It's all mopar in front, but I'm not sure what the rears are yet. I'll have to call him and ask.

Actually my dad made it and put it on there. He's planning on fabbing up one for this thing too. The only cars in our driveway that don't have class 3s are both of mine.

I think it would look cool lowered as right now, I can get under the whole car laying on my back, but right now I just don't have any room in back to do it, it'd probably have to be mini tubbed. It does have a rake in it that you can't see in the pictures. That caddy is actually sittting on the stock suspension. All my dad did was put some low profile tires on it and I can't get under it.

Dude... MOJO! That Generation Cuda is one of my wife's favorites. Super cool car. As for the Caddy... Damn! I like the flat Black better too, but I prefer flat on almost any car.
