    Here are some pictures of my 67 Cuda 440 with CAP tubular front end using torsion bars from a small block V8 car.

    Well all you big cubic inch guys look out...just got another 273 Dart! Only has a 904 and stock rear end. Just ordered an 8 3/4 rear end and will put a 727 tranny run 4:89 gear. Had one of these with a four speed when I was a kid and it kicked some butt big time in the 1/8 problem in the last 75 yards of the 1/4...you would all pass me up. Think I got this one figured out for ...the last 75 yard problem from back on the day. Time will tell! Had a Clayton Wright small block in it...had to go to college and sold it. Broke my heart, but now at 61 years young...

    Love those fender exit headers! Can't wait till I am at that point. Was the 440 a tight fit? Did you need to change any front end parts for the weight?
