    The first Cuda I ever saw was from the school bus when I was 10 years old (40 years ago), it was a Red 70 Hemi Cuda. I LOVED the car and, years later, missed my chance to purchase it by 3 months. It is now way out of my budget! I did just purchase a Red 70 Barracuda that will have to fill the void. It is a roller in need of some paint repair, drive train and interior. I am going to start looking for wheel and tire size combinations, any advice is appreciated.

    Cool looking car! Paint looks pretty good from the pics.
    What was the car colored originally? Fender tag code?

    Welcome!

    good luck
    hope it turns out perfect for you
    tire and wheel combo is tough
    what do you want to do with the car?
    how do you want the stance?
    aftermarket disc brakes?
    I have upgraded suspension and brakes
    wanted the car to handle like a new car =it does
    went with 17 in wheels to fit over brakes
    rear 255-50 17
    front 225-50 17
    cars sits 1 inch lower than factory at 51inches tall
    hope this helps

    Nothing wrong with a Barracuda! Usually abused less than a Cuda. Yours looks like a good one, and you can build it however you want.

    :usflag: aboard. I like the AAR Cuda rear antennae hole. Very nice start to any way you decide to go.

    Not a bad idea to make an AAR clone? Still a Barracuda. And lots of fun with a high rev 340? I know I would be tempted for a hemi in that big ol E-body engine well. But costs would climb quickly.
