The axle is a Dana 60 series assembly. It appears to be original to the car. If the build date is correct on the axle of 10/20/1969 and it is original to the car then the car most likely was built after its scheduled build date of 10/13/1969.
The driveshaft is correct and appears to be the original one for the car. The part number and build date could not be seen.
The transmission does not have the correct VIN stamped on it for this vehicle. The part # 3515846 is for a 1971 383 V8 engine
The engine does not have the correct VIN stamped on it for this vehicle. The original carburetors were not on the car but will be supplied by the owner of the car to the buyer. The shaker bubble appears to be original. However, there were no tools available to remove it from the engine.
This very 'Cuda was featured in Hagerty Magazine as a cover car for a muscle car write-up by famed car collector Ken Lingenfelter and a copy of the magazine is included. Also included is numerous pieces of documentation such as: the original trader ad when the car was bought in '79, the original broadcast sheet, the original Carter carburetors, a written list of the RPO options, the original owner's manual and supplemental literature, a calendar of the Hagerty photo shoot, and a picture binder documenting the 35 year ownership history with the previous owner. This is truly a unique opportunity to own a highly optioned, low mileage, real R-Code Hemi 'Cuda with a long single ownership history!
