So I picked up a 71 Cuda today from Highway 61, was part of an older collection.  Car is in fantastic shape, but when I looked underneath, and in the engine bay, the engine looks to be leaning towards the passenger side down.  It doesn't look tinkered with at all, and there is absolutely no play in any parts.  Is this how the model should be?

Bah, lame!  Oh well, the rest of the car looks great, along with the other one I snagged with it.  Will post pics in my collection sometime this week!

I think I have that same model, is it the black stobe stripe 70 Cuda? That is the 383 car I have, with the twin air scope.

Perhaps if you were to remove and re-set the air filter so it is level it might not be so obvious?  :twocents:
