1970 Plymouth Barracuda Base

I have decided to put my 1970 ‘Cuda up for sale to fund other projects.
This is an actual ‘Cuda and not a clone. This is an original BS23N0B car which started life as a 383 4 barrel car with a 4 speed and console. The 4 speed transmission was replaced somewhere in it’s life with an 18-spline “Hemi” transmission. The 383 in the car is not the original block, the engine in the car is dated 1971. I have had quite a bit of work done to the ‘Cuda over the years. The car was repainted the original FE5 Rallye Red around 2003. I had the rear frame rails, trunk pan, and trunk extensions replaced with parts from Year One at that time. The right side quarter panel was replaced at some point in it's life. It's still a pretty good paint job but I would not call it a show car by any means. This is what I would call a
very gooddriver quality 1970 ‘Cuda. This car has some desirable options like the A22 Rubber bumpers, premium interior with overhead console, plus it’s a 4-speed. It was originally a black vinyl top car, but that was long gone before I bought it. This car has the Fast EZ-EFI on it and it drives great. What a difference the fuel injection made in the drivability and throttle response. The rear end’s 3.23 gears make it a breeze to cruise 70 MPH on the freeway and can still easily spin the tires. I added the original 3 speaker dash bezels to the dash and installed four infinity speakers in the front and Pioneer 6x9’s in the rear of the car, so the tunes sound pretty good too. But mostly I just leave the radio off to listen to the big block rumble. I would not be afraid to drive this car anywhere and frequently drive in 2 hours to Columbus Oh and 2 hours back home for various car shows. I have taken this car to car shows and had plenty of compliments and awards. I do have the broadcast sheet, but the fender tag is missing. This is a really nice ‘Cuda but I would encourage serious buyers to come take a look before buying. If you have questions feel free to give me a call or textat 937-six3eight-nine27one, I will return all voicemails if I’m not available. Selling it for $49,500 OBO. I have described the car to the best of my ability and it is being sold as-is.
I have a lot more photos, I can send a link if you would like to see them, ebay wont let me post the link.
