I think you got it wrong. The 'Cuda was the basic "no-frills" performance car. The Challenger R/T was an "upgraded" slightly more expensive performance car with a touch of luxury. Very similar to General Motors' Camaro and Firebird.

Cuda340,

Ok, if you say so, but I always thought my 'Cuda had more styling than my Challenger. I saw the Challenger as a beefy competitor and my 73 'Cuda as a "frills" car. Though I fully admit it could out run my Challenger. I always thought the 'Cuda as a "girls" car compared to the Challenger. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed both. My 'Cuda would only come out on the weekends, while I drove my Challenger or Satelite,GTX, Duster or whatever other car I would have during the week. It was my Favorite.

Here's a thought, what might make sense for Chrysler to do is hang tight, ride the Challenger for 3-4 years as the shiny new luster fades on its "new kid on the block" vibe, BAM......stoke the coles with RETURN OF THE CUDA!

I myself have always like the Chally more. Having never owned them, my opinion is greatly deferred to both of yours, but I always thought the Cuda was a no frills street warrior. Kind of like a prettier version of the Superbee or Roadrunner.

Yeah, make it affordable enough (without compromising coolness/quality) and you might get folks owning one of each! And if no Convertible Challenger is offered.....perfect opportunity.

As for rumors of the return of the ’Cuda on the same platform (presumably as a Chrysler now that Plymouth is defunct), Ralph Gilles, vice-president of Jeep, truck, and component design, was not hot on the idea in a recent conversation with Car and Driver.

“I can see it being done as aftermarket, but not something we would do lightly as a production model,” Gilles says, for a number of reasons. One, you don’t mess with history. Second, the hot designer thinks, in many ways, that the Challenger was a better design than the ’Cuda. Third, and probably most important, he wants the new Challenger to have its day in the sun—unfettered.

Maybe Chrysler will see the errors of the Dailmer's way, understand the that brand dilution was lesser penalty than brand ambiguity, bring back Plymouth, and produce Luxury Chrylsers again...
