When you’re packing a race-prepped 383 and then move up to a monstrous 512 Hemi under the hood, there’s no such thing as too much traction. Joe keeps his ’Cuda on the straight and narrow with a pair of ultra-wide 29 x 18.5 Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires mounted to massive 15 x 14 Cragar SS wheels. To accommodate the generous girth, Joe tubbed the rear wheelwells with the help of Carson “Skippy” Stone of Skippy Did It Race Cars in Ravenna, Ohio.
A RideTech suspension system gives the ’Cuda that “just right” stance. Dreamt up years before off-the-shelf parts existed for the 40-year-old Mopar, Skippy Stone fabricated a set of custom steel A-arms to make it all come together.
Super savvy Mopar aficionados will note that chrome was never an option for the Challenger SRT8’s 20" rollers. What you see here is a custom chrome powdercoat applied by the performance and styling gurus at RDP Motorsport in Perry, Ohio. Pedders shocks and springs at all four corners drop the Challenger down a healthy 2", filling in the Mopar’s muscular wheel arches without ruining the smooth ride.
A fresh take on the ’Cuda’s hockey stick stripe, the Challenger also sports a set of silver streaks, accentuating the modern Mopar’s aggressive haunches. Usually flat black, Pam resprayed the rear spoiler with a coat of Brilliant Black Crystal Pearl to flow seamlessly with the existing bodywork.
Originally, Joe and Pam considered pairing up the ’Cuda with a matching AAR replica, but with the hefty price tag attached to classic Mopars, it made more sense to buy a new one. “With the beautiful leather interior, all the technology, and ice-cold air conditioning, I don’t regret our decision one bit,” says Pam. Sure the two Mopars were built nearly 40 years apart, but the family resemblance is uncanny!
