    That sounds great, and I totally get it.
    The appearance of the 4VFI units is just so attractive, that configuration, a cross ram, is impressive looking to begin with, and my imagination just jumped to that image.
    Sounds like an awesome build!
    To me, a Daytona or Superbird should be built with all of the benefits modern suspension technology can offer, and I would have a built 'Bird with a 5 or 6 speed standard transmission and an appropriate rear end gear for acceleration in the lower gears but a 200 MPH top end...
    If I had one...
    And I wasn't going for all original...
    Like if it was far gone from original or a clone.
    :D

    That's what my plan for this car,when I saw this car for sale on Moparts,I was planning on buying a used Hellcat Challenger,but this project caught my eye. I knew that the Daytona aero package was good for over 200 MPH,and so is the modern Nascar chassis. I already had the Hemi,so it seemed like a no brainer for me. The crazy idea of having a 200 MPH Nascar street driven Hemi Daytona really seemed possible!
