1970 CUDA FRONT LOOK, 440 V8, SHAKER HOOD, 747 AUTO, PWR STEER, FRNT DISCS, NICE
There are very few words more fearsome in the pony car world than 'Cuda. So, it's irresistible to find one like this recently restored 1972 Plymouth 'Cuda, that blends big block 440 muscle car style with enough modern upkeep to be a daily driver.
Owing a 'Cuda from this era is like entrance into an exclusive club. By 1972, higher insurance premiums were killing muscle car production numbers, and Chrysler always had lower figures then the rest of The Big Three. Combine this with Mopar's traditionally long option list, and the 'Cuda camaraderie is often about the few ways owner's cars are alike, because most are so rare and unique. Keen Mopar eyes will have already spotted a few differences on this coupe. For starters, it turns back the clock a few years to take away the federal impact bumpers. And while this was being customized, the front grille and rear panel were switched out for 1970s style pieces to complete the correct look. It all gives this 'Cuda a distinctive minimized chrome appearance that lets you focus on the awesome original shade of Rallye Red paint, and its accessories such as the hockey stripe down the side, hood pins, and of course, the highly desirable bold shaker hood.
Open the door, and it's everything you want to see. High-backed black vinyl bucket seats, new door skins, and a center console with the cool original "slapstick" shifter. Then you slip behind the wood rimmed three-spoke wheel and you see some serious upgrades. There's an AM/FM/CD stereo so you can play your modern tunes while cruising. More importantly there is a full custom set of AutoMeter gages that makes sure you have a clear picture of what's going on under the hood.
The fender callouts, and hood shaker, did not disquise what lies beneith in this 'Cuda. Power comes from a 440 cubic-inch V8. You may already know these engines were not available from the factory in '72, but this car was just too good not to get a big block. So a '71 motor was completely rebuilt less than 300 miles ago, and installed in this racy red Plymouth. While they were upgrading the motor, it also received performance goodies like an Edelbrock carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers. So now you can just imagine how well this one barks at other cars from its dual exhaust system. Delivery of all this power is quite good thanks to the A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission that's connected to the Sure Grip limited slip differential rear end, with a versatile 3.23 ratio. Control is well in hand with power steering, front disc brakes, and modern BF Goodrich grip, masked by period-correct painted steel wheels and dog dish hubcaps.
This 'Cuda is fresh off a restoration from earlier this year, and we even can show you all the receipts to prove it. Rarely do you get this level of quality in a Mopar for such an affordable price. Call today!!
