That and there worth more too. I sold all my Ford toys to get into the Mopars. Traded my 71 Dart running driving car for this convertable.

My old boss at the GMC dealer was a Cuda fanatic. He had a hemi cuda that was (at the time) valued at 95k.

Yeah, my goal is to work up to a 68-70 Charger. Told my son we'd build The General some day.

I'll get some more pics up as I go along, the car needs a total resto. Front floors also rotten. When I got the car it came with all new sheetmetal.

Heres the front floors.
