The Model - All good things must come to an end, and so it was when regulations and insurance rates contributed to putting an end to the Muscle-Car era. It didn't take too many years for high-performance enthusiasts to realize what they had lived through and was now lost to the ages. Ever since that era came to a screeching halt, there have been skilled craftsmen who have studied those cars of speed, design, and power and then built modern creations forever making improvements to engine output, steering and handling abilities along with improved comfort all around. As prices escalated on many models, especially those equipped with a factory Hemi-V8, building alternative creations that had the looks and performance of those originals have become an art-form. Like the originals, these are not your usual family "grocery-getters", but are machines to be driven and enjoyed. Capturing the look, feel and exhilaration of those mighty MoPars takes an investment of time, skills and patience, of which many try to complete and few manage to succeed.

The Car - With a Sassy-Grass Green finish and those big-black "Hemi" billboard graphics on the side, there is no doubt of what you're going to be up against. The build for this 'Cuda hardtop started with a solid body that was tweaked and finished to absolute perfection. The electrifying high-impact green exterior means business while the interior of this car is finished in authentic black vinyl. Modern instruments make sure all of the mechanical components are in working order, and an up-to-date AM-FM-CD stereo system will keep the driver and passengers entertained for many miles while they stay cool with vintage air-conditioning. Of course, the main act is the under the hood, powered by a new crate 472 cid Hemi-V8. This engine has been built and prepared to deliver the ultimate in straightaway speed, backed up by a proven transmission. Since its build was completed in 2006, just a little over 1,350 miles have been clocked the odometer. This is one muscle-car that wasn't created to languish in a garage or a static collection. It was built to perform. Custom alloy 10-spoke wheel, heavy-duty suspension, and sure-stopping brakes combine to make this beauty ready for the road. If you have ever wondered what it would be like to watch the fence posts go clicking by at high-speed, wonder no more and put your hand in the air to own this fabulous 'Cuda.
