Where Classic Style Meets Modern Technology

1971 Plymouth Cuda

We have lots of Mopar fans and customers. Here’s one where the customer purchased a painted shell and sent it to us to fill in the blanks. We’ll start with a Schwartz G-Machine Chassis made to fit the customer’s modern SRT-8 Hemi. This engine’s computer and harness requires a lot of electrical handiwork by our expert technicians to mate it to a 46-year-old car that didn’t come with any electronics. No problem for Schwartz Performance, we’ve done this before. This one will be a normal left-hand drive ‘cuda, but that’s where normal ends.
