This is a '71 Real Shaker 340 Cuda found in Mission, BC. The car has 21,144 orig miles. The car has been sitting indoors since the late 70's maybe early 80's. The car came from Edmonton, Alberta in 1978 with a 426 hemi installed , dana with 456 gears (which racked up some un-needed extra miles ...speedo gear was never change to the right ratio) and the car ran some passes @ the old Mission speedway and I think thats where the Hemi blew a rod, so it was pulled & thats the last time this 'Cuda seen an engine. I found a mint broadcast sheet and a half & one from another car. the car came with a mysterious Factory screw up ! When pulling the drivers seat & track I discoverd the seat track wasn't for this car ??? its a 6 way seat track in UNbeleiveable MINT shape and look to be orig to car but Wasn't coded on the biuld sheet ....the weird part was the original carpets (which are still MINT) are still in the car and where the original standard seat tracks sit the carpet was never crushed down like it should when bolting your seats down & underneath this car there were NO factory stafety braces for the six way seat track ?? Then getting out the passenger seat finding a broadcast sheet for a curious yellow 383 auto 71 'cuda built with in ten days of my car coded for Export & coded for a six way seat !! Somone must have goofed.
Also the other factory screw-up is the original shaker hood, there are no crumple zone marks under side of the hood BUT the build date is March 31/71 Why would that hood be sent out when the were suppose to put the safe hoods on by then and the hood is the orig to the car by scratch and some factory paint runs and finding no other color of the the orig. I have an Original NOS never installed 340 Warranty unstamped 72 date coded steel crank Long block and 95% or the parts to put this car back to the way it came from the factory!
