About

Here's my 65 Cuda I built as a tribute car of Tom Mongoose McEwen's 65 Hemi Cuda funny car.Tom ran 2 of these in 65 with nitro burning Hemi's the first one didn't fare well as it had a blow over doing 155mph at Lions.The second was more successful.
Mine started out as a shell that sat unattended for 15+ years the main body was still in decent shape.
Having always liking gassers I set out to build one with the help of my friend Scott.
Our goal was to do it all ourselves and make it look like some thing you would have seen at the track in 1965.

Mild 440
727 with manual valve body
83/4 w 391 posi
