Because of the lowest numbers of Plymouth Cuda Convertible in interesting designs of the muscle car era, you’re going to be attracted to this 1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible.
We believe there were only twelve (yes, a dozen) that came packaged like this from the factory, with features like the wild paint scheme, shaker hood scoop, and a 440 six pack V8. So with its exceptionally thorough restoration, we can easily say 1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible might be one if the best one in the world!
The Cuda’s shape is one of the most popular muscle car profiles in history.
It only gets better with one that as a factory-issued optional High Impact color. The FY1 code is known as Top Banana on Dodges is called Lemon Twist on Plymouths. This convertible is simply stunning in the sunlight thanks to a professional respray of this highly desirable paint. But, the true love is in the details. This ‘Cuda has the iconic rear fender kick that’s showcased by the black rear stripes. In fact, the black trim has been used to amplify this convertible’s aggressive attitude – from the optional N96 shaker hood, to the rear spoiler. But it’s the brightwork that makes the final muscle car touches. You see it in items like the hood pins, wraparound bumpers, large dual exhaust tips, and the trim rings on the Rallye wheels. Now that you’ve looked over every inch of this rare ‘Cuda, you can tell just the level of quality and detail that came with its restoration.
The moment you slip into the high-back bucket seat, you realize just how factory correct this Plymouth Cuda Convertible feels. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the seats, door panels, carpets, roof, and every other major component was either replaced or restored to factory standards. This option-heavy muscle car includes the desirable center console, and it even had an iconic pistol-grip adapted for the automatic transmission. This one has also been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD stereo, but it’s hidden in the glovebox so it won’t ruin the vintage muscle car atmosphere. In fact, from the driver’s seat, this one feels dead accurate with the three-spoke steering wheel and optional A62 Rallye Instrument Cluster Package that includes a tach. And you can share this full experience with the world at the touch of a button thanks to the power folding roof.
The pristine black vinyl interior is the right choice to complement the exterior accents.
When you pop the hood, you’ll know those rear fender callouts were not lying. Underneath that big shaker is a 440 cubic-inch V8 with triple-duce carburetors for the desirable six-pack. This motor fires right up, and makes a ferocious growl out of the custom dual exhaust. By now you’ve checked the VIN, and seen the ”V” that tells you the monster V8 is correct for this convertible. It was rated at 390 hp from the factory, and this ‘Cuda was specially optioned to handle all that power. This includes the D32 heavy-duty three-speed automatic transmission that connects to the A36 performance axle with Sure-Grip limited slip rear. But this is more than just a street brawler. The rear end is running a versatile 3.55 ratio for easy cruising. Plus, the power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich tires at all four corners make this an easy choice to be the star on the road.
