1971 Cuda Hellcat - Chiquita
« on: February 24, 2018, 02:33:06 PM »
Folks, I have a 1971 Cuda 4 speed that I'm going to upgrade with a Hellcat Hellcrate motor, an upgraded 5 Speed and Dana 60 rear. As you can imagine there are tons of "in between" parts to swap and upgrade along the way.

I'm still sourcing most of the parts but the car and just the motor are on the way as of now. The folks at Roseville Moparts have been amazingly helpful and I'm waiting to hear back from them on a list of goodies I want to order.

Stay tuned for updates and let the fabbing begin! :takemymoney:

Do you have a thread to follow? I’d like to see what you are going to do to tackle some of the challenges.

So this is kinda confusing.   :thinking:

You're going to put a Hellcat engine in, yet your car is posted for sale on Craigslist?

Can you explain what your thinking is here?  :notsure:

Ahhh I see why you’re confused. I bought the car and you’re looking at an old ad.

Well I hope you've got an official signed title and release of liability papers all taken care of already for your sake.
I never take anyone for granted buying or selling a car.   :alan2cents:

Good luck with the project, it's going to be a nice car when finished.
