Mod Top #14
Wade Kahn in Idaho wants us to know this about his 1969 Barracuda Mod Top:
"THE CAR ORIGINALLY CAME WITH THE RECALLED ROAD WHEELS [Note from Julie: according to 'Barracuda and Challenger' by Paul Zazarine this was 'Chrysler's first attempt at a lightweight aluminum road wheel...Engineering tests indicated that the lug nuts would loosen during operation. Torquing them down resulted in cracking the aluminum-alloy center. Chrysler was determined to get the wheels off all cars to prevent any accidents...' So those recalled wheel are RARE!]"
