Amos has owned his 440 six-bar­rel '70 'Cuda since 1975. Back then, it was pur­chased to re­place a '65 Ply­mouth Satel­lite that he and his dad had been drag rac­ing. For a car that was only 5 years old, Ju­nior claims, "It had been used pretty good." The 440 six-bar­rel mill was bad, the paint faded, and the seats torn. The tired 440 was sold off and re­placed with a race-prepped en­gine. It ended up sit­ting un­til 1979, at which point he got it run­ning. He never liked pur­ple, so it was painted red, and that's how it stayed un­til 1995, when it was dam­aged in an ac­ci­dent while he was tow­ing it. At that point he de­cided to put it back to its orig­i­nal con­fig­u­ra­tion, which would span an­other 10 years. The 440 cur­rently in­stalled has a cor­rect date-coded block.
