Video: 1,200HP 1973 Plymouth Cuda “Fat Fish”


The world of horsepower radically changes when forced induction gets involved. When an engine changes from sucking in air and fuel to having forcibly shoved down its throat, a motor can do a lot of things differently. That’s how the fine folks at ProCharger see it, and that’s definitely how the owner of this 1973 Plymouth ‘Cuda – dubbed the “Fat Fish” – sees things.

Now erupting with over 1,200-horsepower not only is the stuff that only Bugatti Veyrons and McLaren supercars only dream of, but also professional drag racers. And that’s exactly the kind of engine necessary to drum up that kind of earth-shaking power. An alcohol-injected 440 rests between the inner fender wells, with a MSD billet distributor and ignition box throwing the fire.

Understandably, the E-body rides low on big polished rollers – particularly in back with large wheel tubs. This video was captured by YouTube guerrilla videographer ScottieD TV as it left Pro Auto Custom Interiors late last year. The cabin also sports the necessary safety equipment and roll cage, because 1,200-horsepower makes you rethink your factory lapbelts.
