Well, someone just made my day.. the problem is I don’t know who; so, maybe you could help me find out. In the meantime, let’s all enjoy and drool at this incredible resto-modded classic American muscle car, dubbed “Conviction Cuda.” It was initially displayed at the 2008 SEMA show, and it was custom built from the ground up from a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda, the best Cuda of all.
There’s no argue this Cuda is one of the most visually stunning pro touring vehicles ever made. The paint-job is a wonderful combination of Silver Star and Purformance Purple paint combo with airbrushed stripes; the muscle-car also features polished Bonspeed Quasar wheels measuring 245/40/18 at the front and 295/35/20 at the rear, all wrapped in Nitto Invo rubber, Harley-Davidson sourced twin-bulb modular headlights and hand-made LED tail lights.
The body-line modifications are all steel, including the beads on the rear valence, rear spoiler, custom made hood with OEM nostrils and brake cooling ducts integrated into the lower valence. At the rear, diffuser ducts enhance the bad-ass look and generates down-force at high speeds. The side mirrors come from a Chrysler Crossfire, although nothing could spoil this gorgeous Cuda.
This awesome ride is powered by a modern 6.1-liter Arrington HEMI V8 engine, developing p525 horsepower, whichj was mated to a Keisler five-speed manual gearbox with pistol grip shifter and a 3.91 limited slip differential. The vented and cross-drilled Baer brakes will help you slow down, although I wouldn’t understand why, while the suspension system features cockpit-adjustable Air Ride shocks and massive sway bars. Tube headers dump into a stainless steel X-pipe gallery, with Flowmaster mufflers and custom tips.
Inside the cabin, the specially fabricated door jambs and Corvette bucket seats upholstered with a mesh insert will make you feel special instantly. ALso worth mentioning are the bespoke dashboard full of carbon fiber inserts and the red starter button. You’ll be enjoying music via an Alpine sound system connected to two big Kickers located in the trunk. The price-tag? $149,000. ‘Nuff said!
