LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda.
The Plymouth Barracuda and sport model ‘Cuda variant had very humble beginnings. Starting out as a redesigned Valiant set to take on Ford’s incredibly popular Mustang. Although it didn’t take off in popularity like the Mustang, it developed a loyal following. In 1970, Plymouth decided to step up its game and while the design/name only lasted until 1974 the ‘Cuda has gone down in history as one of the most attractive and desirable muscle cars ever built. The 1970 model had the new E-body which was shorter and wider so removed all commonality with the Valiant. For engines the 1970 Barracuda/Barracuda Gran Coupe/’Cuda line up had six and eight cylinder versions ranging from a new 198 cu in six to the mighty 426 Hemi. In 1970, as it is today, the 426 Hemi is the king of the Mopar Big-Block power options that provided 425 angry horses according to the factory. However, it is well known that this was a very conservative horsepower listing. The 426 2-4bbl power plant took on a very mean and nasty look when they can be seen peering through the famous Shaker Hood. As well the Hemi-equipped cars received upgraded suspension components and structural reinforcements to help transfer the power to the road. The other aspect of the Mopar Muscle cars of this era was the "high impact" colors that were on the order sheet. Mopar also sported some of the best go faster stripes like the Black Hockey Stick on the hind quarter of the ’70 ‘Cuda proudly displaying the engine block such as Hemi in the stick blade. Plymouth advertised these cars as part of their ‘Rapid Transit System’ and suggested “There are two kinds of Barracudas in this world. Those that do… and those that really do”.
This 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda left the Hamtrack, Michigan Assembly Plant on November 22. From factory it had the highly desirable and coveted 426 “R” code Hemi engine and sought after D21 4-Speed pistol grip manual transmission. With the Super Track Pak with Dana 4.10 ratio this Cuda is not to be trifled with. Also, highly sought after on this Cuda is the mandatory N96 Shaker Hood option and Hi Impact FC7 Plum Crazy Metallic paint. The Plum Crazy paint today is in like new condition and is indeed show worthy. It has been wet sanded and polished to a absolute high gloss finish. Other options to grace this Hemi Cuda are; dual chrome exhausts with chrome exhaust tips, power brakes, and White Vinyl Bucket Seats. With power steering this Cuda is truly a dream to drive. Completemed very nicely with a wonderfully restored and striking white high back bucket vinyl interior. The look completed with matching white hockey stick stripe on the quarter panel. Great attention was paid to the undercarriage as well during the restoration. Under close inspection one will find it was restored to be as delivered from the factory with the floors themselves being lightly undercoated. While the suspension itself was completely and fully detailed prior to going together, all done in two separate stages just as the factory would have done it. Under the hood is the massive Hemi engine; in an absolutely clean, correctly detailed, and looking better than new engine bay.
The 1970 Hemi Cuda is in a league of its own and is arguably the most coveted muscle car of its time. This Hemi Cuda is in immaculate condition and is a prime example of what these cars looked like when they rolled off the assembly line. With many rare and desired factory options, this Cuda was and still is, one of the most remarkable and desirable cars of the past and present.
