BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED! RARE FACTORY FM3 PANTHER PINK, 383 V8, 4 SPD PISTOL GRIP!
Well-executed, high impact curb appeal and bona fide collectability value to boot! This 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda is only about 1,000 miles beyond a seriously impressive restoration at the hands of a renowned MoPar professional that's left it looking great. Not only is it an attention magnet, but also an unusually rare find - it's one of only 150 'Cudas that left the factory clad in vibrant FM3 Panther Pink.
Considering this rare Plymouth was brought back to top form at the hands of well-respected MoPar restoration specialist Bob Watkins, you'd expect to see an awesome result and this '70 certainly stands up to any lofty standards it could be judged by. The Panther pink color had an almost electric quality to begin with, and with it now looking its best, this Mopar absolutely radiates when it basks in the sun. The original fender tag shows the car came with sport mirrors, hood pins, body mouldings, dual exhaust with chrome tips, black vinyl top and a black hockey stripe. Added options were painted mirror, road lamps and 15" rally wheels. From front to back, this Cuda's body panels line up impressively well, so its doors, hood and deck lid all open and close smoothly and are surrounded by nice, even gaps. All the finishing touches have been properly looked after - the bumpers on both ends show no blemishes, the cabin is surrounded by clear glass and even the hood pins and casings on the fog lights below the front grille shine against their backgrounds.
The black vinyl interior has received the same level of meticulous attention as what's on display outside, so as you climb inside this true classic, you'll be immersed in an outstanding vintage driving environment. The seat covers on both the high-backed front buckets and rear bench seat look nearly new - with so few miles on them, they really don't show any signs of use. Between them sits a correct for 1970 center console that sports an awesome pistol-gripped shifter. Though a little more compact than its Dodge stablemate - the Challenger - the 'Cuda is still a healthy-sized muscle car with more than enough interior space, so your rear passengers will have lots of leg room at their disposal as they join you on your journeys. Beyond the tuff grip steering wheel you'll find the rally dash area sports a collection of clear gauges in its instrument cluster, as well as a straight, fresh-looking dash pad on top that shows no cracks. There's plenty of storage area surrounding the space-saver spare in the rear trunk, and the visible inner wheelhouses sport the same carefully applied paint you'll see on the exterior.
Below the scooped hood sits an unusually clean engine bay that features an assortment of fresh hoses and properly routed wiring. A period correct 383 cubic inch Super Commando V8 sits front and center, looking sharp in its proper orange paint that provides a great contrast to the deep pink walls it's surrounded by. The original automatic has been converted to a 23-spline pistol grip 4 speed with a Centerforce clutch with all the correct parts. The 8 3/4 Sure Grip rear end holds 3.55 gears and sits in back to securely apply the engine's outstanding torque to the asphalt. During the course of this restoration, a substantial number of components were either rebuilt or replaced entirely, so this vintage Plymouth offers a high degree of road-readiness to go along with its magnetic curb appeal as it cruises on those rally wheels outfitted with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires.
A well-restored classic is bound to get attention, but with its high impact color and thoroughly well-finished appearance, the head-turning capability of this 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda is undeniable. Call today!
