Details abound. Every nut, bolt, bracket, fitting, and anything small enough to fit into a glass bead cabinet were cleaned and painted. New LED taillight inserts from Hi Tech LED Products went into the rear panel. A custom billet and stainless fuel tank by Rick's Hot Rod Shop with a quiet internal electric fuel pump feeds the engine all the motivation the right foot dishes out. A Kicker stereo system rounds it out. Special thanks goes out to YearOne, who supplied a lot of the restoration parts to make it all happen and to give the car it's almost-stock appearance.
"The 'Cuda was shown at SEMA, the Mopar Nationals, and Chryslers at Carlisle last year," says Marcus. "The real test was its maiden voyage from Orlando to Englishtown, New Jersey, for the Hot Rod Power Tour. Only a few bugs had to be worked out along the way; the windshield molding could not take the 150-plus mph on one of the safe road track areas and became loose!"
Not bad for stuff that came out of the box.
