GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda 426 Hemi Coupe. This is a real deal R-Code Hemi 'Cuda with a 727 Torqflite automatic, Super Track Pack Dana 60 with 4.10 gears, and just over 28,500 original miles! It is finished in its rare originally ordered, and highly desired, RPO EV2 Tor-Red color with black vinyl top and black vinyl interior. It is a 3-owner car and has been owned by the current owner since 1979 when it was purchased in Kentucky from a newspaper listing. It has since been under the care of a single owner for the last 35 of its 44 years.

Decoding the VIN reveals:
• B = Barracuda
• S = 'Cuda
• 23 = 2 Door Hardtop
• R = 426ci 425hp Hemi V8
• 0 = 1970
• B = Hamtramck, MI assembly

It's no secret that Hemi 'Cuda's are incredibly rare and below is a quick break-down of the production numbers relating to 1970 Hardtop 'Cuda's:
• 16,710 Hardtop 'Cuda's
• 652 Hardtop Hemi 'Cuda's,
o 3.9% of production
• 368 Hardtop Hemi 'Cuda's with autos,
o 2.2% of total Hardtop 'Cuda production
o 56% of total Hardtop Hemi 'Cuda production

Even though this is a real R-Code Hemi 'Cuda, it is a non-numbers matching block and transmission. The car has a drag racing history from its early years and the original block did not survive. It features an unstamped replacement 426 block built by Best Machine in Farmington Hills, MI in 2009 complete with dual Carter carbs, Diamond pistons and Eagle connecting rods. The compression ratio is 10:1 and its output is 509hp currently. This car is well optioned with the Super Track Pack Dana 60 as mentioned, Sure Grip, Rally gauges, power brakes with front discs, vinyl bucket seats, electric clock, heat, simulated woodgrain, 7-blade clutch drive fan, and wide sill moldings.

The condition of the car is in a surviving state as the exterior is of good driver quality and the interior is in very good condition. As far as restoration goes; under the hood it is restored as the entire engine bay and underside of the hood were done in 2009 with the new motor. The front suspension and the underside of the chassis were also repainted. It is a very well running driver that could be enjoyed as is or take it to the next level to be a show car.

This very 'Cuda was featured in Hagerty Magazine as a cover car for a muscle car write-up by famed car collector Ken Lingenfelter and a copy of the magazine is included. Also included is numerous pieces of documentation such as: the original trader ad when the car was bought in '79, the original broadcast sheet, the original Carter carburetors, a written list of the RPO options, the original owner's manual and supplemental literature, a unique wallet with a Tor-Red '70 'Cuda pictured, documentation and receipts from Best Machine for the engine build, a calendar of the Hagerty photo shoot, and a picture binder documenting the 35 year ownership history with the current owner. This is truly a unique opportunity to own a highly optioned, low mileage, real R-Code Hemi 'Cuda with a long single ownership history! Call for further details.
