1970 Plymouth Cuda V-CODE 440+6

Description:

Real-deal V-code 440 Six Pack car. Beautiful restoration in early 2000s, still very, very sharp. Original color combination, options, and specifications. All original sheetmetal. High-quality V-code 'Cuda, ready to rock!

This 'Cuda is a really impressive car from any angle. It was restored in the early 2000s and hasn't been driven much, but that's OK because the preservation is quite impressive. We can detect no replacement sheetmetal or patch work under the glowing FE5 Rally Red paint and this car fits together better than any Chrysler product of the 1970s ever did sitting on the factory floor. Reviewing the fender tag, which you'll note is full of options, shows that this car was restored to factory specs, including the rather rare Elastomeric front bumper, which is color-matched to the bodywork. There's no sneaking around, because Rallye Red is brilliant and bright, something that many might call "Arrest Me Red." It's just beautifully done and you can see in the reflections that the bodywork is laser straight and someone invested a serious amount of time during the block sanding and buffing stages to get the surface to reflect just right. But it isn't just red—this car carries the sport hood with simulated air scoops, hood pins, and black "hockey stick" stripes on the quarters with '440' callouts that advertise that there's serious blasting powder under the hood. This car is cosmetically excellent and looks right from any angle.

The interior is likewise nicely restored to factory specs and again, you can see where Chrysler took notes on the competition and turned things up a notch. Settling into the high-back bucket seats is easy, yet the car is notably lower than its competition. There's a handsome wood-rimmed steering wheel that matches the appliques on the dash and center console and provides a consistency with the "Slap Stick" shifter. Big, round gauges monitor all the vitals and it includes a factory tach. The upholstery was all new when the car was restored and shows virtually zero evidence of use or age, including the carpets that are protected by matching embroidered floor mats. The dash pad is original (the repros are easy to spot) and isn't cracked and even the door panels remain in first-rate shape. The interior was extensively insulated with Dynamat before the interior went in, so it's surprisingly quiet and comfortable at speed. Even the trunk was fully lined before the reproduction mat was installed. It isn't quite OEM-looking, but you'll be glad it's there.

Now about that V-code engine. It's a correct 440 HP2 block rebuilt to Six Pack specification and nicely detailed for a factory look. It has an awesome idle that sounds predatory and the three two-barrel Holleys under the air cleaner are well tuned, so it starts easily, idles nicely, and pulls like a freight train when you open all six barrels. The whole thing was bathed in proper Hemi Orange paint and dressed up with reproduction decals for a correct look. It does sport a deep-sump oil pan and pair of ceramic-coated long-tube headers that bolster torque production (as if this engine needs any help in that department), plus a 3-inch Flowmaster exhaust system that sounds heroic. Like I said, this car was not built for stealth.

This car originally came with a stout 727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission, so that's what's in place today. Thanks to a shift kit and a modestly upgraded torque converter, it's incredibly responsive and lunges off the line, snapping off crisp upshifts at speed. Out back there's a tough 8.75-inch rear end with what we believe are 3.54 gears inside. You will find no rust, no floor patches, and super solid torque boxes for the rear springs, suggesting that while this car was built for combat, it seldom saw any. Factory Rallye wheels look great and carry staggered 225/70/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.

Any E-body Mopar is going to be popular, but when it's a genuine V-code Six Pack 'Cuda, you know you've found something special. As one of only 853 built, it remains exceedingly rare, but still very usable and reasonably affordable for an A-list piece of Mopar muscle. It's also quite nicely restored, but not so perfect that you can't get in and enjoy it immediately. Isn't that what cars like this are all about? Call today!
