1970 Plymouth BarracudaFor Auction, I am offering my beloved Cuda. This car was designed to be a touring cross country muscle car with modern amenities but also was designed primarily to beat on the road modern Hemi vehicles and Japanese turbo cars. And it does all that just fine.To the bones of the car:This car is a genuine FJ5 car. When I purchased this car it had never been outside of California and I shipped it up here to Minnesota a few years ago, I was told the car has never had any rust on it and still doesn't. It was a well done 340 6 pack 4 speed car with a shortened rear end and an almost not noticeable tub for slightly larger tires.Now: This car is a 100% legit AAR faux with a 6.1 Hemi swapped in and all supporting designed elements to make this a beautiful daily driver that has the power, handling and ease to drive of a more modern AAR but have the outside appearance of a totally original AAR Cuda.Highlights**** AC vintage air, rack and pinion steering, Hotchkiss suspension and modern Hemi Engine.
Making the car have the original AAR Appearance was painstaking and between the outside and interior it was hard to add the components and conversions to make it look original on the outside but under the hood and under the car its a raging beast the way they car should be.No one wants to mess with the beauty of this car none the less I love the way they look I just wanted a car that can be what its intended to be and keep up with the modern muscle and be a daily driver that's good for road trips.

This car has sports steering and suspension but very manageable as a daily driver, Ice cold AC, nice easy power steering and rack and pinion, modern motor which is economical and starts every time regardless of weather. With the 6 speed it gets great fuel economy measured at 22 Highway or better. 17 inch rear rally wheel replicas and original 15 inch wheels in the front.This car looks amazing, it looks legit and it moves out like nothing you've driven before. Weighs about 3000LBS and lays down 535 Horsepower and you can actually use this power with the supporting mods, its easy to drive, smooth and fast, kick it down to 4th on the highway and pass a Maserati like its standing still.There's not another one like this anywhere and this is not some Hemi build made to make money, this build was made to be a forever keeper with everything to make it modern and fast to drive but have 100% the classic look. Even down to the correct 8000 RPM Rallye gauges, even the most hardcore Mopar AAR know it all will not know this is a modern muscle monster underneath till you open the hood. Rest assured this is a super car, this is a muscle car and this is something to have and to keep. I would never sell this car if it wasn't for the constant need to expand my business, so I need the extra capital.The body is in exceptional condition and has always been mint and rust free, there are some flaws that have developed since I owned in which I have pictures of that include some bubbling under the paint near the exhaust side exit due to the constant heat of the side exit exhaust, there are no dings, dents or scratches. One tiny paint chip on the drivers door from parking lot parking. This has been a daily summer driver so I do drive this car.The car has about 3000 miles on it since the build and the body has 43,000 on it originally.The winner of this auction will receive all receipts, title and documents as well as the names and numbers of all the shops, teams and builders, part numbers and everything.* I owe nothing on this car, there is no liens or loans against it, I have the title in hand**This is a serious build capable of 200+ MPH and can take the clover leaf at 60 with ease* So inspections in person are welcome but I will have to drive it for you unless I can see you are exceptionally experienced.Feel free to fly up and drive this car home, it will drive anywhere and is as reliable as your brand new Buick.I can pick you up at the airport, I am 20 mins from MSP. And shipping the car is easy I have people to help you with that.I will sell to over seas bidders since this is not a #s matching US classic.
