Curbside Classic has a great article on the late 60’s pony wars and Chrysler’s poor showing for what was a great car.
Street Legal TV has a great piece on the awesome Hurst Hemi Under Glass Barracuda. Read the article here!
Curbside Classic has a great piece on the Dodges of Brazil. In 1969, the Dart that we know and love debuted in Brazil and became a hit. So much so that they decided to use styling cues from the second generation North American Charger to create a 1971 A-body Charger. Read the entire article here.
Motor Authority has a piece on a 1967 Hurst Barracuda that recently paid a visit to Jay Leno’s Garage. Built by B&M (aka Hurst), the car is powered by a 360 that’s been punched out to 408 cubic inches and is pushing 500 hp. Coupled with a TKO 600 5 speed and working thru a Hotchkis suspension, it’s looks to be restomodded just enough. Video after the jump!
Finnegan and Freiburger drop a 440 into a Duster, transforming it into Freiburger’s dream A body. The 440 started life in a motorhome before powering General Mayhem (which is now getting a Hellcat!). So what can an anemic 1977 motorhome 440 rated at 185 hp at the crank do with Edelbrock heads, a 25 year old recycled cam, and new intake and exhaust? You’ll be surprised. Video after the jump!
