1970 Plymouth CUDA
Car for sale by LRA ENTERPRISES in Bristol, Pennsylvania 19007
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
The redesign for the 1970 Barracuda removed all its previous commonality with the Valiant. The original fastback design was deleted from the line and the Barracuda now consisted of coupe and convertible models. The all-new model, styled by John E.

As the years past, the original owner kept in touch with the second owner and for decades attempted to purchase the car back. The farmer declined even though the car was no longer running and effectively turning into a Barn Find. Finally, the time came when the second owner agreed to sell the Cuda back to her original owner. The car was restored by the original owner and his now much older son prior to coming into our inventory. Fully Authenticated by Galen Govier, this car is fully documented with restoration receipts, original newspaper clippings from 1970 when the car was originally purchased and n
