Hello everybody,

I just started to restore my 73’ cuda in my basement, there in France. So please tell me if my English is not correct 😬

First, my car looked really good but my engine was extremely bad assembly and too many parts were not match together for power

Brakes vacuum pump was sometime lazy 😱
Due to an old wiring harness. My car was too scary

I had the opportunity to buy a TKO600 full conversion kit for e body for a good price, then in France ! (Car was in 727 before)
So I needed to cut the floor to fit the new 5 speed trans (and change carpet / add new center consol and shift…)

My project is :

440 - 500 stroker / stealth CNC heads / sniper efi / 3” full exhaust / big cold air radiator

TKO600

QA1 coil over conversion (front and rear) $$

Master cylinder wilwood with hydroboost
14’ front wilwood brake with 6 pistons
12,19” rear / 4 pistons

18 wheels U111 Mag Wheels

Dakota digital km/h conversion (standard / no rally)

New wiring harness from me

New insulation/carpet/dash pad/seat foam


Paint is good, just need a polish job at the end and paint the new rear valance with exhaust hole and fake little scoop on the hood (I don’t like the black on it)


I already begun to work on it and you can follow some story on my instagram page : cuda_500

Thank you for support, MERCI

"I just started to restore my 73’ cuda in my basement, there in France. So please tell me if my English is not correct." It should read: I just started to restore my 73’ cuda in my basement, here in France. So please tell me if my English is not correct. There if you are somewhere else.Here if you are there. Does that make any sense? Là si vous êtes ailleurs. Ici si vous y êtes. Cela a-t-il un sens? I think you have the correct English spin on the restoration. How does the picture below translate to French.“She has a certain je ne sais quoi about her” Welcome to FEBO!

Hi there . I am from Quebec but live in B.C. now and speak french very well. Your expression translates to me like this. She has something but i am not sure what about her.

Welcome to the Site. Looks like your doing a great job. Good idea to change the front suspension. You might need a better turning radius for all those small streets in town. I lived near Toulouse for a few years and rented a Citron C5 once. Terrible turning radius. Lets see some pics of the car at the Millau Bridge or maybe in front of the Narbonne Gate at Carcassonne. Good luck and don't worry about your English, it's fine
