this rad illustration of the kuda is by none other than the brutally talented christian pearce, a good friend, coworker, and fellow car nerd. although even he is sick of hearing about the kuda...

this image was originally created as part of pearce's awesome 99 deadly sleds project, check it out here

alternate scheme for the engine bay of the kuda. this is a more race-oriented direction, with natural-finish fabricated alloy parts, and black engine block.

440 KUDA engine bay

quick concept for the potential look of the kuda's engine bay. this scheme pays homage to the way the factory painted the whole 440 six-pack motor orange, and it looked amazing in a black or contrasting engine bay.

440 KUDA logo

here's a concept for the new hand painted WWII bomber style painting that will live on the driver side of the kuda. for the past few years the actual cuda fish logo that plymouth used to promote the late 60's barracuda's has been painted on the side. this new version is meant to be a fun reflection of the new, mean, nature of the kuda.

440 KUDA

welcome to beck kustoms.
this is a blog for the car related work of aaron beck.

and this particular car is a concept piece for the in-progress beck kustom's kuda. the paint is a homage to the factory mopar drag cars of the late 60s, and the kuda will be running a hot 440 big block, 4 speed, fiberglass front end, and hotchkis suspension.

stay tuned for updates, build images, artwork, and ideas!
