Plymouth HEMI 'Cuda 1970 Convertible (22-wide)
Well this is something unexpected for you guys. Even I wasn't sure to built this car in real bricks. Because a while ago I saw that it was €300 on LDD. So I tried Bricklink now, and bought 75% of the parts for €165. I had the other 25% already so that was no problem. And now, here it is! :D Please rate and comment!
About this creation
22-wide is pretty big. And it is 100% complete. ;) I'm really happy to finally have this huge car! :D And it has a lot of functions: everything opens, (hood doors and trunk) steering with working steering wheel, suspension and RWD. ;) Enjoy!



Front,



Front side,



Side,



Side rear,



Rear,



Top,



Hood open,



And this is the 426 HEMI V8. In orange! :D



Shaker hood scoop removed from the engine,



Trunk open,



Doors open,







This is the interior,







Behind the steering wheel, ;)



This is how it looks in the game Need For Speed Pro Street by the way.



And everything open... Normally I'm done here but there are more pictures. ;)



Suspension rear,

Suspension front,

And here is the detailed chassis.



My 22-wide 'Cuda next to my 12-wide 'Cuda! It still exists. ;)

Well that's it, and I hope you liked it!

overwhelming, the shape of the car you met 100 per. The engine can even detect the intake, just wonderful.

I don't know how I missed this the first time around. It is absolutely awesome! The sculpting of the body is perfect, especially near the front and the rear.

Quoting Jacob Hampton Wow, this is one MASSIVE car! My largest car (which I need to post) is only a 14-wide! Amazing, but is the RWD tech necessary? What does it power? Also, how does the steering work?
Thanks, And yes it is necessary because it has a driveshaft and a rear end with a differential. This already makes it RWD. But you can also put a working lego engine in it and connect it to the driveshaft to make it work. Then it even gets better. On The end of the steering shaft is a gear. This gear rotates and the rack moves which is connected whit both wheels. I hope this helped.

Quoting TheLegoNoitAll . Hey Rick! are you working on another car? if you are can you tell me which car, or will it be a surprise?
Yes I am. It's a 12-wide Snot Rod from Disney Pixar Cars. It is a RC car. You can check it out here on Cuusoo: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/24475. I will post it in real bricks on MOCpages soon.

Wow, that's so cool the styling is so close to the original Barracuda - Muscle Car Rules! There are so many functions and details, my favourite is definitely the Hemi V8 with the shaker hood. Great job! :-))

This is really making me rethink my 'Ranha (Which is what my favorite game calls the 'Cuda). The headlights on this thing are the same size as on mine and it's an 8 wide! Nice job making this car, I love the engine, the air intake was so big I thought that was the engine, but no! XD Sweet ride, I want it, both in LEGO and real life!

Wohohou... I have a soft spot for a big cars you know!! The shaping is incredible. You could easily mix it with the real one even after staring at it for a while. And nice last picture with the little "kid" next to the huuuuuge "brother" :)

Quoting Scott Allen One of the most complete and accurate builds ive seen. Everything looks fantastic from any angle. How many pieces in this big bad cuda'? This could and should be a UCS set. Period. It is beautiful. ~cheers
Thank you very much! Round about 1950 bricks. :)

Quoting John Fink This is the same make and model as Coop's car from Megas XLR. All it needs is flames painted on the sides, video game controllers inside, and a giant robot for a body! Nice work.
I've discovered the 'Cuda of Megas XLR. ;) And I was thinking about flames and controllers inside too. Thanks for comment! :)
