    Hello, new member here. I've been away from Mopars since 2003, I just completed a 92 mustang coupe, turbo'd blowthrough carb, E85, street strip car. Now I'm getting back to my Cuda. I bought the Cuda back when I was 17yrs old, it took me 3yrs of pestering the owners before they let it go. It's a 1974 Barracuda, KG8 green, 360, 4bbl, pistol grip, 3.91's, rally gauges. Picture circa 1999-2000 image%3A16527.jpg

    The plan is to finish the body work and interior. Stock appearance right down to the Plymouth Division hub caps and steel wheels. I do want to do a Tremec 5spd conversion for the long hauls. In the next few weeks I need to get the rear axle back under it and get new exhaust under it.

    Welcome to FEBO from New Jersey. 1974 Cuda 360 4sp are pretty rare cars. Looking forward to seeing your work on it!

    image%3A11790.jpg Just finished up going through the rear end. Welded on new leaf spring perches, previous owner had done a half ass relocation, this brings it back to stock.

    I think the cow covers involved a high school dare, they're long gone. Thanks for the compliment on my welding, metal fab I can do, woodworking baffles me.
