1970 Cuda - "In the Red" - Owner: Stuart Weeman

This early 70's musclecar was a Hotrod magazine feature car under prior ownership. When the car when up for sale its current owner Stuart remembered the magazine feature and how he had been intrigued with the cars original custom build. He struck a deal and the car migrated from west cost to east coast. When purchased the car had a stout 400hp. 340ci engine hooked up to a Richmond 6-speed manual transmission. It was quite the cruiser, however Stuart is a hemi lover and, a year later, the decision was made to change the drive line to a vintage 426 hemi with a Tremec 5-Speed. This arrangement satisfied Stuart for another 2 years of driving-but that was before the boys at Xtreme set forth on a more radical build.

Xtreme rebuilt the vintage cuda using 4 wheel coil over suspension on all 4 corners. A Reilly Motor Sports alterkation frame was used up front and a Ride Tech air bar was used in the rear. The rally red paint was replaced with a much more vibrant and eye-catching "Viper Red". In keeping with the red theme a red "ghost" hockey stick hemi call out was applied to the quarter panels. Red bumpers, red shaker, red door handles, rear wing and a custom sewn Logo red hartz cloth convertible top were added. All this red was set off by a set of Boyd Codington 17" highly polished aluminum wheels over Wilwood 14" disc Brakes.

How do you improve on vintage hemi power? By installing a SRT 6.1 Hemi with a twin screw super charger bolted on top, that's how! Still hooked up to a heavy duty Tremec five-speed, this cuda has no problem keeping up with modern sports cars on straightways or corners.

This amazing, high-powered 70's classic has been a class winner at Boston World of Wheels and participated in the Hotrod Power Tour 2006-2007, as featured in Hotrod Magazine.

A lot of attention for a nice little daily driver...well, except for the occasional visit to traffic court.
