Featured here is the “close-up” car from the Nash Bridges TV show driven by Don Johnson. It started life as a 1970 Cuda convertible and was eventually restored by top Mopar guys Totally Auto Inc. to include a 426 Hemi.

This video is a close-up look at the car, which was also painted yellow for the show. As with all TV movie cars a straightforward original is rarely used, but rather lesser models used and dressed up to look like a more rare version, with multiple versions. You can find out more about its history here.

‘During the Don Johnson television series, the car was powered by a warmed over 360 & fitted with 1971 Plymouth cuda body panels & trim along with the iconic Shaker Hood scoop. It was painted this specific yellow to show up for the television cameras. There were 4 cars used in filming what I remember. 1971 ‘cuda convertibles & 1971 Barracuda convertibles are like hens teeth now & in the 1990s! It has underwent 2 restorations since filming, the latest showcasing 426 HEMI power paired with the 4-speed & iconic pistol-grip shifter, MOPAR baby!
