Schwartz Performance Supercharged, RHD Plymouth ‘Cuda
http://www.hotrod.com/articles/schwartz ... outh-cuda/
One look at this ‘Cuda and you can tell it’s not your ordinary E-body, and that’s saying something. ‘Cudas are some of the most brash pony cars to come out of Detroit, with shaker hoods, bright paint, and unruly HemiV8s. This particular build from Schwartz Performance has the striking pearl orange and a Hemi of its own, but sets itself apart with a right hand drive conversion that took quite a bit of custom fabrication. If you’ve ever peeked inside a Mopar E-body you’d notice that the entire drivetrain and trans tunnel are shifted towards the passenger side, or what we in North America know as the passenger side, to help with steering clearance. The car’s owner lives in India, where left hand drive is a no-go, so Schwartz fabricated new floorboards, trans tunnel, and steering that moved everything to the left to make room to move the steering to the right.
Custom PPG pearl orange was sprayed at Schwartz Performance.
A complete custom interior was built, and Recaro seats were upholstered in matching leather. They feature cooling vents that route air through the perforated leather. The console shifter is linked to a GM 4L80E transmission.
Dakota Digital gauges and pushbutton starter are housed in a custom dash panel that invokes classic GT cars.
Arrington Performance built the 426ci Gen III Hemi that’s topped by Arrington’s Eaton supercharger.
Whopping 345mm Michelin Pilot Sports are mounted to three-piece Foose Nitrous wheels.
I cannot imagine how much work it took to convert this 'Cuda to RHD. That's crazy.
