    I bought this new in May 69, sold about 1974 for down payment on a house. Had 17,500 mi. at that time. Green with green buckets, no console. VIN# BH29F9B339758. I don't know how many of these 318 4 speed cars with an 8 3/4 rear were built but they weren't very common. Would like to know if it's still around.

    There was one here in our town here in the KC, area. I took photos of it in 1980 or so. Green with green interior, 318 four speed with 8 3/4" rear axle. I will try to get my photos out Tuesday.

    I found my photos and I am sorry to say they suck something fierce. But remember, back in 1979 or so, we used 35 mm cameras, some of which weren't too good and most of us who borrowed them weren't very good photographers. With that said, here you go.

    Looks like a similar car, but mine had chrome slot wheels and the tail panel had been painted flat black like a 'cuda. Thanks so much for the pictures.

    I think all 4 speed 318's came with the 8 3/4. would sure be cool if it is still kicking around NYS someplace.

    Just guessing, but looks like the red car was a real 'cuda package car? I don't think people were adding hood scoops and stripes to their cars in '79?
    If real 'cuda, was it 340, 383, or 440 ???????????

    The red one is my pals Cuda 340. It is a disc brake car with AM_
    FM, power brakes, limited slip, deluxe interior seats with light package. Its in the Nashville area now.
