Evolve Motors and Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda!
This is not your ordinary Mopar. Coming off a fresh restoration in 2015 this car was built to it's factory options and specification and looks amazing. The best part is that while it retains all of her original driveline and engine, it has a freshly built motor. The original block is bored .60 over and a 4” stroker crank bring the displacement up to 416 cid. This Hemi/6-pack eating monster absolutely rips while retaining it's original facade. The car sounds incredible and is once of the most enjoyable cars to drive.
This ‘Cuda looks great wearing a fresh coat of its original Lime Green Metallic paint. Paint work appears to have been done to a high standard; green has a nice deep glow and the slight metallic sparkle of the finish gives the car a great shine. The black hockey-stick stripe does well to accentuate the car’s muscular lines and contrasts beautifully with the green metallic paint, as do the originally optioned Magnum 500 wheels. The car underwent a very thorough restoration in 2015, so the overwhelming majority of the car is in like-new condition. There are no dents, dings, or scratches to be found anywhere on the car. All chrome is intact and very well presented. Panel fitment is good.
This car was originally spec’d with a dark green interior, which was swapped out for a new black leather interior during the restoration. We think the black looks fantastic and, though not original, is a welcomed change. Interior presents as new and carries the smell of fresh carpet and vinyl. Seats are free of any cracks or scratches in the slightest. Carpeting is new. Door panels, dash, headliner, and steering wheel are mint. The only part of the interior that doesn’t appear new are the gauges; which show some slight patina but look fabulous. Radio is the correct Chrysler Solid State unit, and a USB plug-in has been fitted on the underside of the dash. Odometer reads 36,366 though with the amount of work that’s been done (keep reading…) is somewhat irrelevant.
In 2015 the car had a full engine build, to the tune of nearly $9,000. Please see the photos, as the receipt from Matt’s Motor Worx in Minnesota is documented. All features function properly. The cars braking system is all rebuilt, as are most of the mechanicals. All bushings and wearables all show nicely, as you would expect. The carb is tuned nicely and it runs great. The transmission shifts nice and crisp. The car is wonderful to drive and makes amazing smooth power plus it sounds fantastic!
As evidenced in the photos, the underbody is quite nice. There is no through rust of any sort. All casting numbers are clearly visible and components show very little wear. We notice a dent in the right forward rail that was left alone when restored. The car is properly finish underneath and looks outstanding up in the air as you can see in our pictures.
This is a sharp looking, fully-sorted example of one of the Mopar greats. It has the menacing muscle car appearance, performance, and sound, all while remaining elegant with its understated color. The 416 built motor is ready to walk all over any big block you put next to it. These cars are aging very well; with the recent restoration, this one just got a second lease on life and will be enjoyed for many, many more years.
