1970 Plymouth BarracudaHi Guys,
Awesome project car here. I just doubled down on a Sixpack Shaker Cuda and I'm going to put a few of my projects up for sale. This Cuda you see here is one I had to have but now its time to pass the torch. This Car is a really nicely optioned car. I've had a lot of very cool mopars through the years but this was my first Elastomeric bumper car to come through my possession. This my friends is a REAL DEAL blue chip collector grade car. Please listen when I tell you to not waste your time restoring a illegitimate six cylinder or 318 car. Experienced collectors know its always, always, always important to find a car with the right pedigree when starting a project. This car has that pedigree. Cars of this caliber always rise in value its been proven for 50 years.

one odd fact, the car came with torque box's which I thought was reserved to Hemi and Sixpack Cuda's.
I understand you Mopar aficionados didn't need the breakdown of the codes because you probably recite them upon awakening in the morning, I more or less put them there for the person just getting their introduction to our inner circle. Getting back to the car, whats not listed on the fender tag but I know came the car from old pictures was the Rimblow Wheel and Road Lamps. All of these options are what gravitated me to this car. The non vinyl roof is the only way to go in my opinion, the rallye dash, rimblow, rev happy 383 with the best gearset you could ask for, neck snapping shifts from the indestructible torqueflight trans, manual steering and brakes because real men favor road feel with a benefit of keeping the biceps toned when parallel parking.
First notation, Mag wheels are not included with sale of the car, the car will be sold with rallye rims complete with trim rings and center caps, tires are aged but all match and look respectable.
Second notation, I will offer the winning purchaser a $500 credit if I'm allowed to keep the door panels and substitute with ones that are not as nice.
Included in auction but not pictured:
1970 383 HP block with correct HP 906 heads
1970 Console with top plate
727 Big Block torqueflight
your choice of green 1972 Cuda seats in pictures or red 1970 Cuda seats that are not as nice but come with tracks as well.
Bumper brackets with bumper cores (will need chroming by Tricity plating)
Back seat (fabric and foam is torn but a core for restoration)
New quarter panel, cant remember which side.
New trunk extensions, both sides
almost any missing chrome trim you see I have but it will be tweaked and twisted need restoration and polish
Grill is in fairly good shape, theres some cracks but I didn't see any missing chunks, one would of been thrilled to find one like this 15 years ago before the reproductions came along. Expect to have to deal with some rust areas, the cowl by the wiper motor, trunk floor, lower quarters, lower fenders etc. All in all there's some guys who wish their car was as clean and original as this one. I unfortunately do not have any tail lamps for the car. I haven't pulled the ham out to check the ratio but its the 489 case and rear still has its painted red brake drums so I doubt its ever been apart.
