As if the mighty Cuda isn't impressive on its own, this particular
one has a presence like no other finished in F8 Green and with a
Gator Green Roof.
The 440 6-Pack engine bears its VIN number on the block and is
believed to be numbers matching and original to the car. It has
been rebuilt and tuned and runs incredibly strong.
The body has been subject to a body-off rotisserie restoration and
retains all of its original sheet metal. Both the underside and
inside of the body have been painted F8 Green, Clear Coated and
buffed for an illustrious shine.
An entirely brand new interior kit from Legendary Interior has been
installed and this Shaker Hood Cuda is show ready!
Restoration and Underside Photos are available upon request.

About the Cuda:
The first-generation Barracuda was based on the Chrysler A-body,
and was offered from 1964 to 1966. A two-door hardtop fastback, it
shared a great majority of parts and bodywork with the Plymouth
Valiant, except for the huge and highly distinctive wraparound rear
The second-generation Barracuda, though still Valiant-based, was
heavily redesigned. Built from 1967 to 1969, it was available in
fastback, hardtop, and convertible versions.
The third generation, offered from 1970 to 1974, was based on the
Chrysler E-body, exclusive to it and the slightly larger Dodge
Challenger. A completely new design, it was available in hardtop
and convertible body styles.
The redesign for the 1970 Barracuda removed all its previous
commonality with the Valiant. The original fastback design was
deleted from the line and the Barracuda now consisted of coupe and
convertible models. The all-new model, styled by John E. Herlitz,
was built on a shorter, wider version of Chrysler's existing B
platform, called the E-body. Sharing this platform was the newly
launched Dodge Challenger; however no exterior sheet metal
interchanged between the two cars, and the Challenger, at 110" had
a wheelbase that was 2" longer than the Barracuda.
Three versions were offered for 1970 and 1971: the base Barracuda
(BH), the luxury oriented Gran Coupe (BP), and the sport model
'Cuda (BS). Beginning mid year 1970, and ending with the 1971
model, there also was the Barracuda Coupe (A93), a low-end model
with the 198ci Slant Six as a base engine, lower grade interior,
and had fixed quarter glass instead of roll-down rear passenger
windows. The high-performance models were marketed as 'Cuda
deriving from the 1969 option. The E-body's engine bay was larger
than that of the previous A-body, facilitating the release of
Chrysler's 426 cu in (7.0 L) Hemi for the regular retail
For 1970 and 1971, the Barracuda and Barracuda Gran Coupe had two
slant I6 engines available - a new 198ci version and the previous
225 - as well as three different V8s: the 318ci, the 383ci with
two-barrel carburetor and single exhaust, and the 383ci with
four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust 330HP. The Cuda had the
383ci 335HP as the standard engine. Options included the 440ci
four-barrel 375HP Super Commando, the 440ci six-barrel Super
Commando Six Pak with 390HP, and the 425HP 426ci Hemi. The 440- and
Hemi-equipped cars received upgraded suspension components and
structural reinforcements to help transfer the power to the
In 1970 and 1971 only, the shaker hood (option code N96),
elastomeric (rubber) colored bumpers, and the Spicer-built Dana 60
rear axle were available. The shaker hood was available with 340,
383, 440 four-barrel, 440 six-barrel, and 426 Hemi engines. The
elastomeric (rubber) colored bumpers were available either as a
front-only option, option code A21, or as a front and rear
combination, option code A22. The heavy-duty (and heavy) Dana 60,
with a 9.75 in (248 mm) ring gear, was standard equipment with
manual transmissions and 440 six-barrel and 426 Hemi engines, and
was optional on those with the automatic transmission.
