Nothing says performance louder than a late 1960s Mopar. Chevrolet may have had the Corvette and Ford had its Mustang, but the huge engines that Chrysler managed to shoehorn into some of their cars were nothing short of a miracle. Of course, big engines in regular sized cars meant for some powerful cars as evidenced by this 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda. Remarkable performance, great styling, and rare are only a few words that describe this expertly restored example of one of Mopar’s finest muscle cars.

Offered here is a car that literally defines the height of the muscle car era with this stunning 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda. Crazy colors were the order of the day for Plymouth with Lime Light, Deep Burnt Orange, and Lemon Twist to name a few and this example is finished in a most desirable bright Moulin Rouge with a black vinyl top. The 'Cuda was fully redesigned for 1970 and featured the long nose and short deck theme that defined the look of a great car. Riding on a 108-inch wheelbase, the 'Cuda was a perfectly proportioned car from any angle. The spectacular example offered here is 1 of just 853 that drove off the assembly line with the coveted “V-Code” option that equipped it with a 440 cubic-inch V-8 with six-pack carburetion resulting in 390 thundering horsepower pounding the pavement. This is also a nicely optioned car with power steering, bucket seats and console, rear spoiler, Rally wheels, and road lights. The interior features everything that the muscle car was known for including a wood steering wheel and Plymouth’s pistol grip shifter. This 'Cuda rides on Goodyear Wingfoot HP tires that give it an aggressive stance. Under the hood is a fully detailed engine compartment that has all correct wiring, hose clamps, paint, and even has an period-correct battery. The large decal on the massive air cleaner tells the world that this is a 440 six-barrel and is ready for any street fight. The chassis and all underside components are perfectly detailed. This is also a numbers-matching car that has been documented by noted Mopar specialist Galen Govier.

The American muscle cars represents an era of automotive history that will never live again, but their memory is carried on every time the key is turned on this powerful 440 'Cuda. For the very best in Mopar performance, this 'Cuda has many more stories to tell.
