LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 440 Six-Pack.
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.
