This '73 Cuda built at our shop with many serious modifications and body and paint surely enhances the assembly line product we see so often. It sports many superior products such as a Ray Barton 528 Hemi, a Keisler Transmission kit, Strange Engineering Dana 60 rear with Tractionloc Posi 3.73 gears and 35 spline axles, Ride Tech four-bar with single adjustable coil-overs and a Firm Feel front suspension package with 12" Wilwood rear disc brakes and 13" Dodge Viper front disc brakes. Exterior Body Mods by Rutter's Rod Shop include a custom-made shaker hood scoop that stays with the hood, front and rear lower valences, removal of all marker lights, shaved door handles, tucked and shortened bumpers, a peaked belt line and custom grill inserts and emblems. Interior Mods include a custom center console, custom door panels, custom instrument cluster and custom stereo which includes JL Audio 10" sub focal speakers, Eclipse amps, a Pioneer head unit and Pioneer back-up camera with double din screen. The custom Two-Tone PPG Paint and Graphics by Rutter's sets this screamer off with style to make it a very tasteful combination of power and beauty. We were honored to feature it in the 2016 NSRA Nationals Builder's Showcase in Louisville, KY!
