1970 Barracuda ''Cuda'' Model.
This year they designed a complete new model, it's the third design, and this design is the most iconic and most beautiful design they made. In 1970 and later, the Barracuda models were based on the Mopar E-Body Platform, a complete new chassis and new body. You could order a base Barracuda or a more luxury Barracuda Gran Coupe, or even the sport model Cuda, this particular car is the sport model Cuda. And it is equipped with the highest output and rarest engine combination available, they made only 368 Hardtop models with the HEMI and automatic transmission combination in total. This car received some special options and a high impact color called Rallye Red, so with all these combinations it's one of a little build and one of a few left over. The Cuda model received standard the following options, you could think of sport suspension like anti sway bars front, and sport shock absorbers, sporty leaf springs and torsion bars, rally Instrument cluster for the Interior with a 150 MPH speedometer and a standard tachometer, buckets seats were standard with Vinyl seat covers. If you ordered a Cuda model, you could assure that you ordered a good equipped car. The shaker hood was also a standard option when you ordered this HEMI engine in a Cuda, it is a fresh air package, where you could control through a knob/lever inside the car the opening valves in the hood. So when it rained or when parked you closed the valves, and when driving the car you could open the valves, it's a really great feature and awesome to see the engine ''Shaking'' through the hood opening.
426 Hemi engine with Automatic transmission & Dana 60 Rear axle 4:10 Super performance Axle Package.
The 426 HEMI is a 7.2 Liter big block with special H.E.M.I heads. This stands for hemispherical combustion chamber, it's a special type of heads and valve combination where the spark plug is mounted in the middle of the valve covers, instead of the side. Hereby you get a good combustion in the combustion chamber, and therefore the HEMI is popular in the history of muscle cars, and cars of today. This engine is looking very big, because of the bigger heads, and they produced a lot of horsepower, standard they were rated at 425 Horsepower, but this was actually much more than advertised. They could easily have 475/500 horsepower standard, because the insurance companies were not that happy with cars with these high-powered engines, they advertised with lower ratings. The automatic transmission received standard a special upgrade to handle the high torque of the HEMI, and was upgraded with a stronger spline shaft.
Normally when you ordered an automatic transmission your car was standard equipped with an 8 3/4 rear axle, but when you wanted a stronger rear axle and higher gear ratio for drag racing. Or real fast 0-60 times you could order special rear axle combinations, this car is ordered with the A32 Super performance rear axle package and the 4:10 Rear ratio, this car is ordered to beat every Muscle car on streets! It's very rare to have an automatic transmission ordered with this special rear axle. The VIN number is stamped on the oil pan rail of the engine, and the VIN number is stamped on the transmission in its bell housing VIN pad. The car is equipped with its Original Hemi Carburetors, these two Carbs are alone a big investment to have, so it's good for the car to have them still there. The engine is overhauled and runes great, and the transmission is rebuilt. This car drives very well and accelerate fast.
This car is really as new, it is completely repainted inside and outside, the undercarriage received a black anti rust protection coating, and all the parts are painted black and gray. And it received all new bushings and ball joints and steering joints. The fuel system is all new and the brake system is also new with new lines and hoses around the car, the brake systems are rebuilt with original parts. The engine is rebuilt with Mopar performance parts and the dual carburetors are rebuilt too and running fine! The automatic transmission is rebuilt and shifts perfectly, this car is underneath in a really healthy fresh condition. Inside the car is restored with its original parts, and where needed with correct original equipment manufacturer replacement parts, or NOS new old stock parts. The interior is also like new, new seat covers, new carpet, new floor mats, new doormats all is in new condition or restored to the best possible state.
