The Old Oregon Motor Company presents:

A beautiful,rust-free, original 1970 BS23H-code 340'Cuda, whichunderwent anextensive and very correctframe-offrestoration to create thisstunning Hemi tribute. Thecar wasdisassembledto a bare shell andmounted on arotisserie. Originalmetal was restored or replaced to create a solid platform for a Chrysler Hemi powered car. The car was painted base coast/clear coat Limelight green on the exterior, inside and fully underneath. Then it was re-assembled with hundredsof hoursof laborand many Mopar NOS andnew period-correct componentsto build an authenticHemi-powered 1970'Cuda.

Major componentsused in the restoration includeanauthentic factory-original426 Hemi engine(correct down to the Hemi-specificCarteгAFB carbs and Hemi manifolds). This was then mated to a Hemi 18-spline 4-speedtransmission and period-correct Dana 60 rear differential. The restoration continued using the correct959Hemi radiator, Hemi K-Frameand finally aHemi-only master cylinder &brakebooster withcorrectoffset bracket. The carhas thecorrectpowersteering(fast-ratio)box, powerfrontdisc brakes, correct Hemi exhaust with new stainless tips. A newsteel shaker hood was usedwith a newaircleanerassembly. Pistol Grip shifter. Aperfectnose grill & headlightbezels,along withfront&rearelastomeric bumpersincludingrockerpanel"gills"frontandrear, andtrunkspoilers, were also fitted.

Interiorwas finished off withnewelectricalwiringfromend to end. New complete Legendaryinterior withheadliner, dash pad, andcarpets. Seats are finished in correct 1970 black vinyl. Theoriginalrallyinstruments withtachometerwere retained and a new"tuff" steering wheelandpistol-grip shifter werefitted. The final touches were a set ofrearwindowlouvers, front fog lights, and correct15"х7" rallywheels.

The engine was built usingpremium unleadedgas-friendly 10.25:1KeithBlack pistons, Eagle con rods, and ARP bolts. The clutch is a10-fingercenterforce item bolted to aMcLeod Hemi flywheel. The transmission wasrebuilt byBreweг's Performanceand mated to afresh driveshaftand rebuiltDana60rearend.

A$7000+engine-out service was just recently completed,and the car was given a clean bill of health. Our mechanic replaced a slightly worn camshaft and installed new lifters along with thenew centerforce clutch. The carburetors were also fully tuned by a Mopar expert. The engine was not dyno tuned, but an estimated 500 horsepowershould be on tap. The car is in excellent condition and is ready for the upcoming classic car show season. No original build sheetor Mopar data plates. Please call Bill Penny at (503) 209-5510 to answer all your questions!
