Nash Bridges - Revell '71 Cuda convertable 1:24 scale Nash Bridges Barracuda - On the first episode of the police drama NASH BRIDGES/CBS/1996-2001, the audience was introduced to a 1970 426 Hemi Plymouth 'Cuda convertible. Painted in High Impact yellow, his sleek muscle car belonged to San Francisco detective Nash Bridges (Don Johnson). Supposedly, the car is "one of 14 ever made." Nash's 426 Drag Hemi engine with twin Carter AFB four-barrels is capable of 425 horsepower at 5,000 rpm, with 0-60 in 5.7 seconds.

Episode No. 4 "High Impact" revealed that Nash treasures his car because it carries sentimental memories of his brother, Bobby who disappeared over Cambodia during the Vietnam War.

Reportedly, there were four different Cuda's specifically built for the show. One is a genuine 440 big-block strip-burner that was converted to a single 4-barrel. The 440 car and the 318 car are actually '71 'Cudas, while the 340 car and the 360 car are '70 'Cudas with cosmetic changes to make them look like '71s.
