SEMA 2016: Graveyard Carz And OER Join Efforts On Classic Mopar

OERGraveyardCarzSEMA2016-20OER has been involved in a lot classic car builds over the years, and this 1971 Barracuda was displayed in the Mopar booth this year. The builders, Dave Rea and Mark Worman – better known by many as the cast at Graveyard Carz – is a shop that restores cars back to the way they were when they rolled off the line oh-so-many years ago.

But this ‘Cuda has a great twist to it, and OER was the source for more than 350 of the classic parts – including the all-new rimblow steering wheel, new this year and introduced at SEMA. “The rimblow wheel is accurate and works just like the original,” said Edward Navarro, Marketing for OER. “The horn works when you squeeze the grip.”

But that’s not all that makes this Sassy Grass Green ‘Cuda different. It was parked int he FCA booth with some pretty cool neighbors, and it did get quite a bit of attention.

While it’s not exactly running a stock engine, the ‘Cuda is running a modern 392 Hemi with a six-speed Tremec transmission, supplied by our friends at Silver Sport Transmissions. Built by Graveyard Carz and Magnum Force Race Car Fabrication, the old school ‘Cuda with the modern Hemi powerplant and six-speed Magnum transmission is sure to be a blast to drive.

And, just to give you a little taste of what else was looming around the OER booth at SEMA, check out the new replacement parts for GM and Mopar classics, as well as a certain Plum Crazy Hemi Challenger with low miles, owned by none other than Reggie Jackson.
