Spendy little car with all the options and after this shop gets done. To bad they can't revive the real Cuda, they were a great car.

I like it ! Of course, with the new Challenger's 4 headlamp system the 'Cuda style that is used is the post-'71 model. The '70 model with the single headlamps, the lower mounted road lamps and the sunken grille is one of the best looking of the bunch but they are doing a nice job on this one. Still looking for the "fish gill" rocker panel moldings....

A worthy modern interpretation of the classic. Here's a '70 AAR I once owned for reference.

Meh


Looks too much like a base challenger with wheels, vinyl graphics, and some bolt ons.

The original cuda was more.

the wheels look terrible on the new "Cuda" impersonator". the new Cuda is nice but its missing the sincerity of the original.

I had a real Cuda 440 6 pack back in the day, it was the quickest street car I have ever owned, I do like the new challanger more than the camaro at this point, but up close they are very big cars, I wish they kept them a small car like they were.

Yes they were! My very first car was a 67' GSS from Mr. Norm. I bought it used in 69' when I was 19. It was fast but handle well? ... not so much. My next car, a 68 Formula "S" Baracuda handled much better. I wish I still had both of them now.

Nice AAR I've got an FM3 AAR. They're realy a pretty unique model compared to the regular 'cuda. Chrysler equipped them with a special block, heads, intake/carb, hood, antenna, different size tires (an industry first), exhaust, spoilers, etc, different from the regular 'cuda.

Nice looking! There is another outfit doing a '71 cuda off of the new Challenger also. While similar to Mr. Norms version, they have the rear quarter panel crease straight like the old 'cudas instead of upswept like on the Challengers.
