1970 Plymouth Cuda

Plymouth Cuda . For sale is my 1970 Plymouth Cuda, an original V code 440-6 Limelight Shaker car that I have owned since 1992. I performed the restoration myself, finishing the project in 1996. The car comes with the original build sheet, which verifies the options on the car. A short list follows:VIN BS23V0B192887 1970 6-Barrel 440 Cuda, 1 of 853 V-Code automatics made in 1970Code FJ5 Limelight paint color Code A32 Super Performance Axle Package 727 3-speed automatic transmission, 4.10 geared Dana 60 rear end (NOTE: rear gears are now 3.54, I swapped them to make highway cruising a little more reasonable RPM-wise)Code N96 Fresh Air Intake Shaker Hood Engine - stock rebuild, numbers matching block Cooling - Griffin aluminum radiator, dual SPAL elec. fans Exhaust - TTI nickel headers and 3" exhaust, Flowmaster 40 series mufflers Magnum Force tubular upper control arms, PST bushings Brakes - front Wilwood Dynalight disc, rear drum Trans - 727 auto, Bob Mazzolini Racing rebuildA/C - Vintage Air Radio - Antique Auto Radios "stealth" radio All PPG paint products Dynamat on floor under ACC carpets, Legendary interior This is not a minty-fresh restoration, which is good and bad. The good: there will be no surprises with this car, it is well sorted, and any issues with the bodywork would have surfaced years ago. The paint has held up extremely well, it has been garage-kept in climate-controlled garages ever since I completed the restoration. All the lights work, inside and out. It?s been driven about 500-1000 miles per year since 1996. It has completed 2 Hot Rod Power Tours without mechanical issue. The bad: This is not a complete OEM numbers-centric restoration, it will not win at the Mopar Nats and would not receive an OE Certification without a lot of work. The transmission is not numbers-matching. It is a column shift automatic, it doesn't have overdrive, and spins at about 3000 rpm at 70, which pretty much negates the sound-deadening I installed. The Flowmaster 40s sound awesome, but drone at highway speeds. The underside is not pristine, it shows that this car has been driven, with some leaks and dirt evident. It's not a full restomod, nor is it OE  it's somewhere in between. Bottom Line: if you are looking for an investment grade Mopar Nats OE-certified 100-point restoration to park in your collection this car is not it. If you are looking for a Restomod with all the modern conveniences, this car is not that either. If you want a car that looks stock, is a real V-code Limelight Shaker Cuda, but has hidden upgrades like A/C, stereo, and suspension/steering/electrical system improvements to make actually driving it more enjoyable, this is your car.
