Description
 
If you want a slick Cuda, now is probably the time to buy. They continue to accelerate in value, and even small block cars like this 1970 340 Cuda are gaining value by leaps and bounds as the big block cars soar past six figures. With a classic high-performance look and sparkling performance from a stout small block, this is one muscle car that truly delivers on the promises made by its awesome good looks. Theres a good argument to be made that this is the best-looking pony car ever made. Even if youre a GM guy or a Mustang fan, you have to admit that after standing back and watching Ford and Chevy figure out the formula, the Chrysler engineers got it exactly right. This handsome B5 Blue Cuda appears to be wearing all its factory-original sheetmetal, which in and of itself is a rather rare find. I, for one, am a fan of small block cars because of their superior handling and friendly road manners, and the look is identical from a distance. The bodywork is very nicely done with that wondrous Blue Fire Metallic paint seeming to glow when the light hits it just right. Proper 340 hockey sticks were installed on the quarters, and I can guarantee that nothing rolling out of the Hamtramck facility in 1970 ever fit together this well. Optional elastomeric bumpers fore and aft give it a purposeful, monochromatic look, and between the hood scoops and fog lamps under the bumper, its an imposing sight, I dont care what youre driving. From any angle, this car is ultra-clean and looks fast just sitting still. The black interior is another place where taking their time scored the Mopar guys serious advantages. The high-back buckets are beautiful to look at and every bit as comfortable as they look, and the cool center console remains a highly desirable option. This car includes the factory A62 Rallye instrument cluster, which include a tachometer, and with bright, crisp markings they look fantastic in their individual round pods. A modern Panasonic AM/FM/CD stereo system has been fitted in place of the original Music Master AM unit, so its a pleasure to drive even when youre not running hard. The seats, carpets, door panels, and dash pad have all been replaced or restored in the not-too-distant past and remain in first-class condition thanks to careful ownership over the past few years. The trunk is correctly outfitted with a reproduction mat plus a correct space-saver spare and jack assembly. The engine is a correct albeit non-matching 340 cubic inch V8 linked to an auto trans. With a mild cam inside and an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor on top, it has a surprising amount of power for a small block and this car will be a handful for anything this side of a Hemi on the street. Its very correctly detailed with Hemi Orange paint on the engine itself, correct reproduction hoses and clamps, and a factory-style air cleaner up top. Power front disc brakes, power steering, and a fresh exhaust system adorn the chassis and the 8.75-inch rear end features easy-cruising 3.23 gears on a Sure Grip limited slip. Correct Rallye wheels are surrounded by fat 235/60/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich tires that totally fill the fenders. You chances to own one of these are getting smaller by the day and it would be a mistake to overlook the small block cars. As this one so ably proves, they can be quite nasty in their own right.
