Simply, the lowest mile Cuda on the planet. This is an amazing all correct all original and all number matching Tor Red Hemi Cuda with a significant racing history to boot. It was special-ordered and purchased new at Shreves Plymouth-Dodge in June of 1970 by Bill Reardon from Clarksburg, West Virginia. Reardon was finally buying dream car at 62 years old. One of the last ten Hemi Cudas built in 1970, it was exactly as he imagined it; Tor-Red exterior with black interior, torqueflite automatic transmission shaker hood with tie downs, and a color-matching steel wheels with dog-dish hubcaps and Goodyear Polyglass GT tires. Reardon named it True Grit. Reardon immediately began modifying True Grit to get her ready for the drag strip: removing the intake and carburetors, the complete exhaust system, rear end, rear wheel tires and front shocks. He replaced all these with the best performance parts available, while carefully stowing the originals in safe storage. In his first season racing True Grit, Bill would make approximately 30 passes at three local drag strips with times occasionally dipping into the high 10-second range. Sadly, that would be his one and only season as Bill suddenly passed away. When his widow passed in 1977, the couple's son sold the car and all the original parts to Marvin Dillion, who, after returning it to its original configuration at 42 miles, drove it less than a single mile in the 16 years that he owned it. Since then, it has been moved enough to take the odometer to its present reading of 86 miles. Today, it is the textbook definition of a time capsule; unmolested, original, and superb verification of the numbers and codes for Hemi lovers!
