For Sale: 1970 Plymouth Cuda in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

With its dual-quad Hemi V8, this 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda was built to do only one thing - go fast! Nowhere on this car does it try to hide its speedy intentions, which means everyone will hide from you on the street and the strip. In fact, as you look through the whole package, you'll find a fresh build where there was over $140k invested within the last few years to help create the ultimate expression of Mopar muscle.


We could start by going into how just owning a 1970 'Cuda is a badge of honor. This was the debut year of a now-iconic body style, and Mopars always had low production numbers. But that's not why you want this coupe. Instead, this is a bold pro street statement that knows how to grab all the attention. After all, we're not sure if people are first going to hear the thunder of the exhaust or see the radiance of the In-Violet paint. This legendary High Impact color was a part of a $25,000 in 2018 that was just for the paint and body alone. This finish loves to highlight just how comprehensive the whole restoration was by the way the light rolls evenly across the tight-fitting body panels. But the six-figure investment in this coupe was now just about the award-worthy shine. The blackout grille, dual-scoop hood, Hemi hockey stick callouts, and rear spoiler help showcase a speedy style. And the size/stance that comes from those uber-wide rear wheels let you know this one can spend Saturday night at the dragstrip before you take it to the Sunday morning car show.


The interior shows off more of the build's thoughtful investments. The custom roll cage was a $2,600 investment. It is in the same purple to match the exterior, and it does a comprehensive job of adding safety and strength without intruding on your ability to get inside. Procar high-back bucket seats, Simpson racing harnesses, and a tubbed rear are all part of the feeling that this 'Cuda wants to get down to speedy business. But we also like the level of comfort they kept in this build. Full carpeting, nice door panels, and a smooth dash make this feel like far more than a race car. And it has a nice driver-oriented style with the contoured center console, Mopar Tuff sports steering wheel, and the classic readouts swapped for a full digital setup.


We know you've been waiting for all those amazing details about what's under the hood, and we can tell you it's even better than you imagined. After all, this was built to not only be powerful, but so you can proudly show it off, too. The engine bay is smooth, clean, and painted the exterior-matching bold purple. And the overall tidiness is award-worthy. At the heart is a fresh 426 cubic-inch Hemi V8 that was a $20k investment all on its own. This is believed to be a fully fortified build that includes Eagle rods, Arias pistons, Comp Cams camshaft, Indy roller rockers, and aluminum heads. It inhales deeply with dual Edelbrock AVS 2 four-barrel carburetors atop an Edelbrock airgap aluminum intake. And it exhales with serious power and authority as Hemi headers feed the dual exhaust. And while this one already has a show-worthy presentation, you can upgrade it whenever you want. That's because a bug-catcher air grabber and the hood it sticks out of both come with the sale, too! Also, make sure to take plenty of extra time looking at the undercharge photos. All those hardy components have a bright style that reminds you how fresh this is over every inch. There you'll start to see how the rear end was more than just tubbed. There was over $11k spent on a custom chassis fabrication to fit the four-link rear and Currie 9-inch rear. And features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes with drilled & slotted rotors are there to remind you that a pro street machine also is supposed to be a solid cruiser when you want it.


We have restoration photos and a comprehensive receipt file totaling over $140,000 in investments in this Plymouth - so call us for the full details. And after you look over this whole car, you can understand how it was money well spent. This is the ultimate mix of a vintage coupe and a street-dominating custom. So if you're looking to be the king of Mopars, call today!
