The Custom Shop will display the Pro Touring 1971 Hemi Cuda convertible, a pro-built street car with street performance, race car handling and the comforts of a new car. The car will be shown in the Center Hall inside of the trade show, between the North hall and the Central halls.
The “Cuda’s” upholstery modifications include using Enduratex vinyl from the Santa Fe Suede collection and the Windsong catalog. “Seeing our products displayed in unique custom applications, such as the Custom Shop’s interior treatment on the Barracuda, demonstrates the versatility and extensive options within the Enduratex product library,” said Jeff Post, vice president and general manager of CGPC America, parent company of Enduratex.
Other details of the car include a custom show paint job with blue pearl top coat and painted black hemi stripes along with a shaker hood, canvas black convertible top, tinted windows, 18- or 20-inch two-tone wheels, custom blue two-tone leather and suede interior, LED interior and exterior accent lights, audio and video system with custom matching panels, custom exhaust system, fresh air intake and filter, dash interior panel kit and custom pedals. For performance, it features a 426 aluminum Mopar GEN 3 motor with fuel injection system, Bowler Performance 4L80E trans with a paddle shifter system, altercation subframe and 4 link system, coil over shocks, and Wilwood wood brake with a Hydratech booster.
