Racing. It’s what Mopar is known for. In the early days of Mopar racing, you had Sox & Martin, Dick Landy, and Herb let-me-show-you-how-to-shift-that-thing McCandless. Does the date of this column look wrong for the car? It really was 1974, and Chrysler had pulled their support out of Pro Stock racing, so many teams started racing in Super Stock. This ’70 ’Cuda convertible started life as 383-powered ride, and noted racer and team owner Brooklyn Heavy threw the keys to Herb McCandless. The car was legal in NHRA’s SS/E class and IHRA’s 1F class. This image was taken during an IHRA race, as noted by the 1F on the window.
