1970 was a red-letter year for muscle cars, we got the now most popular Chevelle, an updated Mustang lineup including the Boss 302 and 429, but most notably Mopar came onto the pony car scene with the E-body Dodge Challenger and Plymouth 'Cuda. Both the Challenger and the 'Cuda have extremely loyal followings today, but there's certainly nothing else like the one-of-a-kind 1970 'Cuda. The 1970 model is arguably the best looking of all the 'Cuda and Barracuda models with it's deep inset grille with extra ventilation and the turn signals hidden at the top of the grille, practically tucked under the hood. The single headlamps on each side gave the grille, and therefore the whole car, a low, wide, and sleek appearance that no other pony car could match. The driving lights placed in front of the lower grille below the front bumper give the appearance of the sharp teeth of a barracuda, ready to attack. This gorgeous convertible example takes that uniquely sleek look to a whole new level. The exterior is finished in instantly recognizable Blue Fire Iridescent, also known as B5 Blue, and is accented by the black convertible top and black “hockey stick” Hemi stripe, as well as beautiful chromework. Under the hood is a beastly 426C.I. breathing through the highly desirable Shaker hood scoop and featuring upgrades such as MSD ignition and an aluminum radiator to help keep that powerplant running cool. The engine is connected to a heavy duty 4-speed manual transmission with a Pistol Grip shifter and drives the power to the rear wheels via the supremely strong Dana 60 rear axle. The exterior of this 'Cuda also features dual painted racing mirrors and Magnum 500 wheels wrapped in classic-look Firestone Wide Oval tires. Step inside and sit back in the comfortable white vinyl bucket seats separated by a center console with woodgrain accents, and enjoy the view of the beautiful interior, including the sought-after wood rimmed steering wheel, and the aforementioned Pistol Grip shifter. This 'Cuda offers the same amount of fun as a true Hemi car, for a fraction of the price and with less worry when taking it for a spin. All this 'Cuda needs is YOU in the driver's seat. It's waiting, are you ready? As always, you are welcome to visit our showroom/museum in sunny Venice, Florida or you may contact one of our friendly sales specialists online or over the phone at your convenience. Don't cut your line, this 'Cuda is a keeper.
