1970 Plymouth Cuda 440

We all know the history and legend behind the 'Cuda. Or at least we should, right? When Plymouth entered the Pony Car arena in the mid 60s they massaged the tried and true Valiant into something a little less than highly successful until 1967 when the Barracuda became it's own model and the suits at Chrysler said it was OK to add real horsepower and style, not unlike the incarnation of the GTO at GM. The success of the Barracuda, especially in the Formula S dress up, led to a realization that, hey there maybe something to this hi-po small car stuff. Then the car guys were able to take over and voila the stylish and truly high performance version of the Barracuda became the 'Cuda. Still one of the greatest marketing coups of the Muscle Car era. With the new aggressive style and a host of driveline options that worked for the local librarian, the stop light to stop light streeters, the newly created Trans Am circuit, and the Monsters of the quarter mile the Barracuda/Cuda became an icon. This offering is in the upper rungs of that tall ladder. Under the bulging hood you will find a 440 V8, but we want to make it clear this is not an original U code 440 Cuda however, it is a correct drive line and color combination. It was an original 383/Automatic car. It comes with the original fender tag. The original restoration is older and has been freshened up with a new interior, paint work, wheels and tires, and the suspension and brakes have been gone through. The 727 Torquflite transmission shifts great and the Dana 60 with 4.11 Posi does what it is built to do. As far as driving goes, this 'Cuda is fast and fun. The previous owner had this car a long time and he built it to enjoy and drive. We have added Vintage heat and air along with power steering to make it a more comfortable driver for those of us that feel the need for speed and comfort today. This is a great opportunity to own a highly optioned 'Cuda that looks and runs great. Check out the option level from the fender tag decode under the features section.
