LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 440-6
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 1970 Barracuda/Barracuda Gran Coupe/’Cuda line up had many powerplant options ranging from a new 198 ci six to the mighty 426ci Hemi. Just below the Hemi powerplant in terms of horsepower was the 440ci Six Pack which was considered by most a better engine on the street. Best of all, this entire package could be had for roughly half the price of the Hemi’s $830.65 admission ticket. Street racers went wild, ordering them like lollipops.
This factory “V” code 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 440 Six Pack shows beautifully in the extremely rare and sought after FE5 Rallye Red complemented by black hockey stick stripes and a black bucket seat interior. Powered by its numbers matching 440ci Six Pack engine and numbers matching 4 speed pistol grip transmission, the car is complete with the Track Pak option with 3.54 ratio Dana 60 axle. Other options on the car include front buckets seats, console, remote driver mirror, hood pins, body moldings’ package, dual exhaust, tachometer, quarter panel tape, AM radio and Rallye wheels with Goodyear Polyglas tires.
This restored 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 440 Six Pack is one of only 902 4-speed coupe versions ever produced. With a beautiful restoration, numbers-matching 440 Six Pack engine and factory 4-speed manual transmission this ‘Cuda would be a great addition to any Mopar collection.
