Vehicle Description

Mopars have an awesome muscle car look, and this 1973 Plymouth Cuda is an arguably one of the best. More than just a well-done bold presentation, this one also offers an upgraded A/C interior and a seriously upgraded V8 that gives it the power to back up its boldness.


This is from the final few years when you could get a true muscle car, and so they took the time to make sure this one was worth checking out. Nice body lines and form hugging chrome bumpers give you good fundamentals, and the bold yellow paint is made even more eye-catching by a great gloss. The black hockey stick stripes give a timeless contrast against the yellow as it shows off the sporty rear fenders. And this coordinates with the roof and blackout rear panel for a subtle two-tone. The dual scoops of the performance hood, wide dual exhaust tips coming out of the rear valance, and upgraded competition-style Torq Thrust wheels with extra meaty rear tires are all part of the style you want on a muscle Mopar. The way it looks today is not the whole story. The trim tag tells us this was born a TX9 coupe. That means it was a rare black. The tag also shows the black vinyl roof and black interior as seen today. So yes, this is a rare triple-black 'Cuda! We're not suggesting it's ready for a respray in any way, but it gives this one a desirable rarity that stays with the car every time you talk about it.


We have a long receipt file from 2014 to 2018 documenting over $15k invested in this coupe. It proves that there was a good bit of time and money spent getting a car that not only look great on the outside, but was also attractive inside, too. The Corbeau racing buckets are an obvious upgrade, but they fit in nicely with the rest of the deep black interior. That's also because the door panels, headliner, and carpeting look excellent in their deep black color. There are nice upgrades for comfort, like the AM/FM stereo featuring a USB input and Bluetooth and the cold-blowing Vintage Air air conditioning. But what you'll really love is the sports car feeling. You have the classic driver-oriented center console with a performance Slap Stick shifter, Mopar Tuff sports steering wheel, and a full set of Rallye gauges, including a large speedo and tach.


The engine bay keeps a stock impression with color-matched inner walls and classic black components. But it's worth digging a little deeper. For starters, while the callouts pay tribute to the motor original size, this is actually a larger 360 cubic-inch V8. Plus, you've got all the right go-fast goodies like a mild cam, Edelbrock performer aluminum heads, a Demon four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. There's even an aluminum radiator w/electric fan to help keep it running cool. Sounds like a lot of power, right? That's why it's mated to Mopar's stout Torqueflite 727 three-speed automatic transmission on the Slap Stick. It even has power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide BF Goodrich T/As to keep it all under your control.


This is the strong-running muscle machine that has been given the right investment and even has a cool history underneath. It all makes for one irresistible 'Cuda that you can't let slip away. Call today!!!
