1970 Cuda with Numbers Matching 426/425 HP Hemi Engine, Manual 4-speed Transmission, and Super Track Pack 4:10:1 ratio with Dana 60 axle. Full rotisserie restoration completed to an extraordinary standard. The original Build Sheet is with the car. Documentation and visual evidence demonstrate with HIGH probability this is an actual 9k mile car (Dave Wise visually agrees) The following is the summary and result of an Elite level hands-on (In Person) review that has been performed by MMC Detroit (Dave Wise) at our request and in accordance with the agreed Scope of Service performed on December 8th 2023. The entire report won't fit in the given number of characters for this ad. The full report is available by request to qualified buyers. This car was also inspected by Galen Govier 20+ years ago (that report is with the car too)
Dave Wise’s findings are as follows: https://youtu.be/oGR9kd6Rr9g.
This is an authentic low mileage highly optioned 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda Hemi. It is finished in its original Tor Red paint color. It has gone through an older professional restoration and is in great condition. It is powered by its original matching-numbers 426 Hemi engine backed by its original numbers matching manual 4-speed transmission and Dana 60 series axle. This vehicle was built at the Hamtramck, Mi assembly plant and had a scheduled production date of October 6, 1969. This vehicle has been recorded in the MMC Detroit Global Vehicle Registry.
Significant features of this Cuda in my professional opinion-
• Owner history
• Low mileage w/ Solid foundation
• Well optioned
Outstanding color combination
Exterior: Tor Red
