There are literally only a handful of cars whose names inspire reverence from auto enthusiasts the way that “Hemi ‘Cuda” does. Perhaps the only other muscle car with similar cachet would be the Boss 429 Mustang, also a combination of a hot car with an even hotter motor. Coincidentally, there were close to the same number of Hemi ‘Cudas made, 780, as there were Boss 429 Mustangs, 858. The Hemi ‘Cuda is so highly regarded that many, if not most, of the ones that you see today did not leave the factories that way, and have been cloned from Slant Six or small block V8 models. This 1971 ‘Cuda, though, ain’t no clone, it’s the real deal, complete with the “Shaker” hood, one of only 114 1970 Hemi ‘Cudas that were made. In terms of American muscle, you don’t get much rarer or more collectible. Speaking of that shaker hood, it was up when I took these photos and you can see right though the big hole in the hood for where the air cleaner goes. it looks pretty cool in 3D.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
