1970 Plymouth Barracuda 'Cuda

Nice, running 1970 'Cuda. This is a "bondo era" car and has bondo in the usual areas. Painted in 1992 with the correct Tor-red, Hemi-Orange color.

Vinyl top is original but could use replacing.

Fish gills are missing (holes for them are in the rocker panels. Right side door wide chrome molding is missing.

Rebuilt engine in 1985. The engine andtransmission are not matching numbers. It has a TCI race transmission w/o backup switch. The trans does flare a bit under light throttle when very warm but otherwise fine. Probably anissue with Holley carb and TV linkage adjustment.

The heads are rebuilt and are the original HP version.

The car hasbig tube, nickel platedheaders from Tubes and Technologies. I have acomplete TT header back exhaust system with welded chrome tip mufflersthat is included.

The original cast iron manifolds are included.

I have owned the car since 1981. It has only about 10k miles since 1981.

The clock reads 55k miles but the care really has 85k miles. The cluster was swapped before my time to the rally cluster. Sending units were swapped so the gauges work.

There is some frame damage due to an accident before I owned it. The drivers side frame rail is dented and pushed in somewhat including the steering gear but the car is aligned.

The car originally had the High performance axle package. This means 3.91 axle ration and HPHemi suspension. Therear axle ratio is now 3.55 with a 742 case.

All metal is original except the left front fender is after market and the right door is from a donor car.

B&M shifter.

Holley 650 carb, Mopar distributor and manifold. More detail to come.
