Hee hee.... I WISH! The Cuda was born a 318 Barracuda, brown on brown or some such nasty color combo, and cloned into a 440 Cuda in the late 1980's, when I bought it for $13.5k at Carlisle, pretty much as you see it. I've put a new trans, exhaust, and shoes on her, but all told I'm in it for less than $20k. The Charger was bought for $3500 as a roller in '91, blew a junkyard 440, and is on her second 440. Maybe I've got $35k into that one, but it IS a real 440 R/T. Recent developments in Mopar prices are what got me looking at GT40s! The Cuda is an awesome cruiser, but I could never see spending $100k on a vintage Mopar that drives like a loaf of bread when GT40 replicas are in that range. I've seen the $2m hemicuda, and it drives a bit better than mine, but I reckon Mopar prices are totally out of whack.5150 said:Such problems CHARLIE C !!!!!
I would venture to say that if your 70 Cuda' is a documented original stick car, its probably worth more, or at least equal to a new SPF !!!
Buy whatever REPLICA GT40 you want.
Sympathy from Massachusetts.....
I think that is a great attitude Charlie, I am very much the same way. I hear that my car will be shipping next week so will let you know when it comes in if your interested in taking a look.charliec said:I want a car that I can tinker with, beat on, and get spare parts for. That's "real" enough for me!
Sandy - Most definitely I am interested in taking a gander at the fabled RCR when it arrives! Let me know when it comes, and maybe on a Friday we can ogle the RCR and take a swing by Bob's in the Cuda... - CharlieSandy said:I think that is a great attitude Charlie, I am very much the same way.
