    Hey All, Christmas and New Year have come and gone and so hasn't Phase 1 of the 73 'Cuda that has been is storage since 1991. The engine, transmission, and shifter have been rebuilt and are ready for installing. The 'Cuda has new wiring from bumper to bumper and LED lighting throughout. The engine bay has been completely restored and painted back to VIN Original Paint Code. The OEM White Vinyl Top, all new weatherstripping/feathers/whiskers, and both Front and Rear Windshields have all been installed, too. WOW!!!! We are definitely on our way. See Pics. Phase 2 is the next step and is all mechanical: engine, fuel, brakes, steering, front and rear suspension, and address any other issues that will pop up. All will be accomplished over the next year and hopefully finished before the end of year. Good Luck to us all on our projects and God Bless.
