1970 Plymouth Cuda 440-6 Barrel

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know the legend precedes the car whenever it comes to anything from Mopar with lots of carbs. But, when it comes to the 6 Barrel, (or 6 Pack depending on your preference), the Cuda legend permeates the atmosphere around the entire hobby. For those that were in the know back then it was understood that the 440/6 turned better times than the Hemi in the quarter and weren't quite as finicky. So you could be a bit faster with a little less change out of your pocket. What we have here is a superb running and driving example of that legend. To start with we want to make it clear this is not an original V code 440/6 Cuda however, it is 'Cuda 340 automatic in Red with elastomeric bumpers and lots of options when new. It was an original FE5 Bright Red with Automatic car. It comes with the original fender tag to verify the originality of this fine "Cuda. The restoration is a few years old and has been driven some and still looks great. As far as driving goes, this is one of the best handling and running Big Block cars we have ever experienced. The previous owner built this one to enjoy and drive. There were only a total of less than 1755 440/6 Cuda hardtops built, for those that don't have that number tattooed on them somewhere, so finding a real one is not impossible but gonna' run you some serious bank. If you're a real player on a well represented tribute car car this is an opportunity to enjoy a great value today.
