Default 71 cuda hardbody project

i picked up a hardbody i been hunting for....since 05.
its a 71 plymouth hemi cuda....jesse james edition.
she fits perfect on my tc4 platform.

this will be another slow project.
i plan on installing a smoker unit in the rear,not sure if i can get the smoke quality im wanting though.







and a leaky smoker unit!

the 1.5s do look good on there.
what tires are on 'em?
some of the old flywheels could look good, too.

the tires are the stock tires that came with the cuda,hard semi flexible rubber.
they are 1.5 tires and rims stock.
wont last long on concrete.....makes some beautiful drifts with them though.

wish i could find some 1.55 onroad tire options.

get satin chrome HPI vintage 5 spokes and paint just the spokes black, that'll look the most realistic like it's running the old ET wheels
