1970 Plymouth CUDA
Coupe Car for sale in Carlsbad, California 92008
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.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
Here we have a kick ass, super clean, recently restored 1970 Cuda in Hemi Orange. It was restored about 5 years ago but looks like it was restored this year. The paint is fantastic and is super clean top and bottom. The last owner who restored it spent a lot of time on this and it shows. I don't think I have owned a car with a nicer paint job. It is an original 340 car but It is not the original 340. It is a period correct 340 though. I do have the rebuild receipt for the motor that was done by a professional shop. I can provide a photo of the specs upon request. The motor runs nice and tight and sounds wonderful. The car has been upgraded with a few items. It has been upgraded recently with a shaker hood which is super cool. I have also recently added a close ratio Borgeson power steering kit which makes the car so much more enjoyable to drive. It also has the Hotchkis rear leafs and front torsion bars which lowers the car just over an inch and provides a really comfortable ride. It is low enough to give it that perfect stance without being too low where you have to be careful when driving. It goes over speed bumps fine. All the suspension components were rebuilt during the restoration so it rides nice and tight with all new bushings and ball joints. It has a great sounding TTi exhaust system. The interior is really clean with much of the original plastic still in the car. The carpet and seats are new and the headliner is nicely done. The trunk and the engine bay is super clean like the rest of the car. The trim is all very nice as well as the weather stripping, it looks new. The only flaw I have noticed is a crack in the center of the grill which I believe can be repaired with some plastic welding.I just took the car to the Good Guys Delmar show and it was pretty cool that it was the only 1970 Cuda or Barracuda I saw in a sea of Camaros, Mustangs and old Chevys. I do love all those cars but the Cuda is pretty unique and few and far between. When you look at the styling of the car it has some pretty clean and thus aerodynamic features. The cool recessed, two finger door pulls, the hidden wipers, even the rain gutters on the roof are blended into the body. Its just a very smooth and interesting car and a fantastic piece of American automotive history.
You are welcome to come and see and drive the car. I can also can put it on a lift for your inspection in Carlsbad, CA.
I do have all the original parts I took off the car like the leaf springs, torsion bars, original steering wheel and steering box if the buyer wants them.
