From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

If you want a slick Cuda, now is probably the time to buy. They continue to accelerate in value, and even small block cars like this 1970 Plymouth Cuda 340 tribute are appreciating by leaps and bounds as the big block cars soar past six figures. With a classic high-performance look, gorgeous bright red paint, and sparkling performance from a stout small block, this is one muscle car that truly delivers on the promises made by its awesome good looks. Theres a good argument to be made that this is the best-looking pony car ever made. Even if youre a GM guy or a Mustang fan, you have to admit that after standing back and watching Ford and Chevy figure out the formula, the Chrysler engineers got it exactly right. This handsome FE5 Red (it was originally Burnt Orange) appears to be wearing its original quarter panels, which in and of itself is a rather rare find. I, for one, am a fan of small block cars because of their superior handling and friendly road manners, and the look is identical from a distance. The bodywork is very nicely done with that bright paint calling out to anyone that its ready to rumble. Proper 340 billboards were installed on the quarters, and I can guarantee that nothing rolling out of the Hamtramck facility in 1970 ever fit together this well. It isnt perfect, but nobodys going to complain about the way this one looks. Chrome bumpers fore and aft give it a detailed look, and between the hood scoops and fog lamps under the front bumper, its an imposing sight. From any angle, this car looks fast just sitting still. The black interior is another place where taking their time scored the Mopar guys serious advantages. The high-back buckets are beautiful to look at and every bit as comfortable as they look and wear recent seat covers with correct patterns and materials. The original gauges look sporty in their individual round pods, and the woodgrained wheel is a nice find, even though its showing some age. The original Music Master AM unit is gone, replaced by a newer digital AM/FM unit that sounds far better. The seats, carpets, door panels, and dash pad have all been replaced or restored in the not-too-distant past and remain in very good condition thanks to careful ownership. The trunk is correctly outfitted with a reproduction mat plus a full-sized spare on a matching Rallye wheel. The engine is a 340 cubic inch V8 linked to a 3-speed automatic transmission (this was originally a 318 car). With a rebuild that includes a few upgrades, it has a surprising amount of power for a small block and this car will be a handful for anything this side of a Hemi on the street. Theres an Edelbrock carburetor, Spectre air cleaner, and a Mopar air gap intake manifold, along with an upgraded camshaft inside. Its very detailed with Hemi Orange paint on the engine itself, and those finned Mopar Performance valve covers add a performance look. The TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission snaps off clean shifts and powers an 8.75-inch rear end with reasonable street gears inside. A rumbling dual exhaust system gives it that distinctive Mopar sound and correct Rallye wheels are surrounded by staggered 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear performance radials. You chances to own one of these are getting smaller by the day and it would be a mistake to overlook the small block cars. As this one so ably proves, they can be quite nasty in their own right.
