This story starts out in 1976, I purchase the cuda in August 1976, at that time i had no idea what the car would turn out to be 38 years later. The car became part of the family with out even thinking about the future, my wife and two daughter grew up with the car, having pictures with the family in the car, my daughters were at the time 1 and 6 years old. The car was my every day driver from 1976 to 1987 for some reason i held on to the car even that i didn't need it any more. My wife passed away in 2003 with breast cancer after 30 years, so after that i pulled the car out and started the restoration, after 4 1/2 years later the car was totally restored. By the end of 2007 the car was ready for the road once again. As i was doing the restoration i found out more about the car and what the value of the car really was, when i did the restoration i put the car back to the way it came from the factory. Finding the build sheet under the seat, being the second owner, with a matching no. car.
The cuda is black with a white interior, 340 CID 4 speed with the A31 package 8 3/4 rear 391 shore grip, its been a great car then and now, almost every weekend at a show are cruise and once again enjoying the car with many friends and family.
