You youngsters may not know but Hurst built 70 Cuda's and 80 Dart's for NHRA SS/A and SS/AA in 1968. They would be what we know as a Drag Pak Challenger now. They ran 10.90 right out of the box.
Here's the letter announcing the Cuda program.
R.D. McLaughlin, Chrysler-Plymouth general sales manager, outlined for dealers and racers what they could order. Here is the letter:
February 20, 1968
To: All Plymouth Dealers
Subject: 1968 Hemi Barracuda Super Stock
The Chrysler-Plymouth Division offers for the 1968 models a 426 Hemi Powered Barracuda Fastback for use in supervised acceleration trials. These cars will weigh approximately 3000 pounds and have been designed to meet the 1968 specifications for the major sanctioning drag strip organization.
The Hemi-Powered Barracudas will be available through production in limited quantities in March. To order this vehicle use the Barracuda Order Form and specify Body Code BO29 and Transmission Code, either 4 Speed Manual Code 339, or Automatic Code 395.
