The Roadster Shop’s 1970 Plymouth Cuda ‘HellFish’

roadster-shop-1970-plymouth-cuda-hellfish-rearYou may be familiar with the expression “like a bat out of hell” to refer to something moving wildly and out of control. In this case, this 1970 Plymouth Cuda moves like a “fish out of hell!”

We spotted this 1970 Plymouth Cuda nicknamed “Hellfish” on display at SEMA 2014, mere steps away from its cousin, the 1968 Charger. Like the Charger, this car was also built by The Roadster Shop, who seem to be up to their ears in vintage Mopars lately.

The HellFish sports a twin-turbocharged HEMI V8 engine putting out 1,000 horsepower. I imagine the only thing keeping it grounded are the transparent red Forgeline DE3C Concave wheels, which are 19 inches up front and 20 inches in the rear. These custom wheels are wrapped in meaty 275/30ZR19 and 335/30ZR20 tires, respectively.

The car rides on a Roadster Shop FastTrack chassis which gives it that “just right” stance. Combined with Wilwood disc brakes and a full set of AutoMeter gauges, this is a car that can slide around the cones with the best of ’em!

We’ve gotta hand it to The Roadster Shop and AutoMeter on their awesome pro-touring build. Nice job everyone!
