1970 Plymouth BarracudaBy 1969 Plymouth stylists had to come up with something bi, bald and innovative for the thirdgeneration of the Barracud, by the stroke a pencil on the drawing board the redesigned Barracuda for 1970would turn out to be one of the most beautiful muscle cars ever built, spy photos of the 1970 Cuda somehowmanaged to get into the automotive publications. It was all excitemen, Plymouth created the " Rapid TransitSystem" and pick up the slang name "Cuda" among Woodward Avenue cruisiers and others around the countryto proudly announce the "Cuda,the R.T.S ultimate Barracuda" . A high performance version was create, the name suited the new crisp, clean and smooth perfectbalanced look,the Cuda distinguished from the standard Barracuda in many way, hood scoops,hood pins,driving lights below the frontbumpe, body side stripe, the sole identification on the car was the word "Cuda"on the flat black rear panel and along with the engine displacement on the hood. The 440ci . the highest displacement engine from Mopar at the time was a perfect pick for developmenton the high performance lineup, the high durability allow coverage by 5 years or 50000 miles warranty and aforged steel crankshaft, forged connecting rods, a ported cylinder heads, a hot camshaft and other developmentswould result on a 375HP with 480 foot.pound Torque at 3200rpm for the 4 barrel AFB Carter carburetor just10 pounds shy of of the "Six Pack" version.
