Watch This Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Drag Race a Hemi-Powered Hot Rod

  Watch This Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT Drag Race a Hemi-Powered Hot Rod <p>Spoiler alert, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT blows the hot rod out of the water.</p>At one point the fastest SUV on the market, the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is able to shoot to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and still carry the whole family to the beach, or wherever. Rather than just showing another video of the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT barreling down the drag strip alone, Jeep UK opted to pit the SRT against a classic Hemi-powered Hot Rod. According to Jeep UK, the hot rod makes 304 horsepower and has a 0-60 mph time of 6.0 seconds. Obviously, the Hot Rod will lose to the Grand Cherokee SRT but the video provides a cool visual while still showing off the SRT's performance.

A look at the just-completed 1971 Hemi ' cuda owned by Tim and Curtis Wellborn. One of one , it is an original driveiine and interior model with FE5 Rallye Red paint, black leather interior/top and WHITE billboards , built at Hamtramck with a Hemi /four-speed combination.

Curtis Wellborn was looking through the extensive paperwork that had come with a car he and his better-known brother Tim had just purchased. He had been reading the options out loud—the '71 Hemi 'Cuda itself was already headed to Roger Gibson's Missouri shop for detailing. There, listed in between 2642969 (heavy-duty red-cap battery) and 1944154 (Hemi power brake vacuum fitting) on a broadcast sheet breakdown, was "V6W." White longitudinal sport stripes. Billboards in '71, and on a four-speed. Add in the black top and interior, and this is the only '71 Hemi 'Cuda so equipped from the factory. So Curtis did read it again, and Tim instantly began to see what this car might be.

"We already had a 1971 Hemi 'Cuda here with black billboards, and we were buying this one really because it was so original," says Tim. "When Curtis read that code off, it was like a shock: white billboards, red paint, black top, four-speed. It had to be one-of-one, and it is."

In the late summer of 1971, the factory ended production on a lot of stuff as that model year concluded. Many of them were victims of huge insurance increases and federal emission controls. The 'Cuda was done and so was the Hemi. By the end of that selling season, just 62 (59 for the U.S. market and three for export) of this design had come off the assembly line with the four-speed transmission, and only one of those is known to exist having gotten the big billboard side stripes in white at Hamtramck. This one. Nevertheless, nobody in the hobby knew this until Tim and Curtis bought the car and began researching it.

Fiat Chrysler Files Trademark For 'Cuda' Name in America

  Fiat Chrysler Files Trademark For 'Cuda' Name in America <p>Rumors are circulating that FCA has a brand-new Barracuda cooking.</p>Although the Plymouth marque was discontinued well over a decade ago, rumors are afloat that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles could introduce a brand-new Barracuda, likely with a Dodge badge on the grille, reviving a nameplate not seen since the Nixon administration. These rumors were reignited recently when FCA filed a new trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the common abbreviation of the name, "Cuda," according to Fiat Chrysler Authority. The automaker already filed for the rights to the full "Barracuda" name back in 2015.

These final-year Hemi 'Cudas have their own mystique. Even before the notoriety of Nash Bridges and million-plus values on the convertible examples, their appearance was unmistakable.

Indeed, considered by some to have been released as the in-your-face last hurrah of the Chrysler supercar era, the scalloped grille, side gill trim, and monster-size graphics remain both instantly identifiable and unequaled from Detroit. The graphics were not beloved by all new-car buyers though, and both respectable people and street racers who could drop the big coin on a '71 Hemi E-Body Plymouth often preferred to leave them off and let the machine itself speak. Of course, collectors have thought otherwise and have often installed them upon repainting a car, even one that never got them new. Perhaps a trip back to December 8, 1970 for a closer look at this car as delivered would help.

That day down in Houston, a man named Robert Shipley took delivery of his new Plymouth from the River Oaks Chrysler-Plymouth franchise. He had custom-ordered the car earlier that fall, and had set it up his way. Nobody else among those 62 buyers did likewise. The exterior was painted FE5 Rallye Red with a black vinyl top. Because Mr. Shipley had ordered a leather interior (only available in black), the top matched that. Adding the big side white graphics created a tri-color combination that is rarely seen on any muscle car, but Mr. Shipley was loading this one up, and he was not done yet.

Outside, 15-inch Rallye wheels, a dealer-installed J78 front spoiler, factory J81 rear spoiler, tinted glass, dual outside mirrors, road lamps, hood pins, and every possible M-code chrome trim piece for this body was added to give it curb appeal. Inside, the SRX9 leather-vinyl upholstery was augmented by a six-way adjustable driver's seat, console with Pistol Grip, top-of-the-line AM/FM stereo with dual front and rear speakers, key-insert buzzer, power windows, and A62 Rallye instrument cluster with tach and electric clock. The final price for all of it pushed the total to over $5,500 on the sticker. We do not know what Robert did for a living or who he knew, but he ended up paying only $5,057 total to take the car off the lot that day.

The car was his for a few years, and like so many others, was sold as the price of gasoline soared in the middle of the decade. The buyer was another Texan named Charles Cheshire. Then in 1986, our sister magazine Car Craft ran a story on Charles and his car collection called "The Elephant Man," as he was one of the very first serious Hemi collectors. During Shipley's ownership, which saw less than 10,000 miles put on the car, something had scratched through one of the Hemi side decals. Charles hated 'em and planned on using the car for some Saturday night street-fighting action, so after getting the car in 1974, he took both the graphics and the black top off. After repainting the car and installing some over-the-counter speed parts, he street raced it on occasion and then showed it during the next 15 years or so. He then sold it to collector Ron Fellwock, who put the car (still in Cheshire's trim) into deep indoor storage for 27 years until Curtis talked to him about possibly selling it in mid-2015.

"You know what else is cool about this one?" Tim asked us. "I have a great 1971 Hemi Charger here that also once belonged to Charles Cheshire, and this sort of reunited those two cars."

Tim and Pam Wellborn have been part of the Mopar hobby since it started. Tim was at the first race at Talladega as a kid, still has the 1971 Hemi Charger R/T his father bought new, and was known as a car guy long before he was known as a money guy. During the 1970s and 1980s, he and Curtis had both bought and sold cars as a hobby. Always more into the E-Body models, Curtis had remembered the former Cheshire car, made the connection with Mr. Fellwock, and he and Tim agreed to make the investment together.

"You know, I bought and sold a few Hemi E-Bodies back in the day," Curtis laughs. "I remembered seeing this car when Charles would bring it to the early Chrysler events and always thought it was cool. Well, I also knew who had gotten it from him and began thinking about it. I contacted the owner, and we talked about whether it might be for sale. As it turns out, he was willing to take an offer, so we made one"

  2 Trans-Am Icons Found Stashed in the Same Barn: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 & 1970 Plymouth AAR ’Cuda Matt was driving to Pittsburgh with his father and Frank to look at a 7,000-mile, original paint, 1969 Hemi Road Runner, an old race car with no motor or transmission. "My dad was in the back seat reading the local trader paper. He said to me, 'Hey Matt, what's an X33 Camaro?'"Matt almost swerved off the road. "X33" on the trim tag of a 1969 Camaro denotes the Z/28 option. He stopped and called the number in the ad. It was winter, January 2016, about 6 o'clock in the evening.

The day they went to see it, Roger Gibson was along and they looked it over. The car was very complete, stored indoors for years, and showing no changes that could not be reversed. The parts that Charles had removed, save for the exhaust system, were all there, and the car featured most of its as-installed accessories. The biggest change was the paint and headers.

Gibson had it for almost a year, both detailing it and documenting its originality, though obviously the car is now repainted. He does a lot of this sort of concierge work on original cars these days, and was amazed at many of the unaltered small details the car possessed. No sheet-metal replacement or rust repair of any sort was needed, the driveline was all original, and it possessed a plethora of quality options. From the legendary Wellborn Museum "dealership parts department" came part of an NOS exhaust system to replace Cheshire's street-performance layout. Due to the long-term storage, Tim also added an NOS gas tank. The only thing originally changed by Cheshire back in the day that Roger did not return to original was the elastomeric bumpers, which look correct on the car and could be easily replaced by order-correct chrome examples. He also left the J78 front spoilers in the trunk as the car would have arrived at the dealership. While we cannot call it a true "survivor" car, it is basically all-original with fresh correct paint and minor parts replacement with NOS-only components.
