The BFG Hemi Cuda Poster Car!

By Roland Osborne


I have had the privilege of participating in the birth of the Chrysler Performance movement since the late ’60s.  My first brand new car was a ’68 Road Runner w/383 four speed.  When I got out of the service in 1972 I found a 426 Hemi ’66 Coronet 500 four speed for sale with a spare Hemi on a pallet. I paid $925 for the complete package and drove the car home.  A year later I bought a ’70 black on black four speed HemiCuda shaker hood car w/23,000 original miles for $1400.

In late ’74 a fellow student at Michigan State University and I started the National Hemi Owners Association.  From that matriculated the Mopar Muscle Club, the founding of dozens of other Mopar clubs, the Mopar Nationals and Chrysler Power Magazine.

From Chrysler Power Magazine came Mopar Collectors Guide and half a dozen other Mopar-only magazines as the parts and cars feeding-frenzy grew.

Today we see many of the HemiCars commanding collector prices in the millions.  It should be no surprise that the most recognized HemiCuda of all time is the one that the media, the restorers and the collectors look to.…The BFG Hemi Cuda PosterCar

I am the Canadian that previously owned this car and delivered it to David. If he failed to buy it, I was going to have to haul it back to Canada before I could sell it to someone else in the USA. I recall the look in his eyes of wondering what was under the oiled cover that hid it. Then David asking me is there really a 1970 Hemi Cuda under there, in total disbelief. I Know the name of the original owner who purchased it new and from where in Canada if you would like more history let me know.I am happy to see that it went to a person that truly appreciates it an it's part in history. Would like to come down and see the car in person again and all your upgrades so please contact me. Hard to rap my mind around it now being a poster car for BF GOODRICH. How about sending me a complementary 10' poster for my living room.
