This rare Mopar has been overlooked for many years.

In the pantheon of American muscle cars, the 1970 Plymouth Cuda holds a place of honor. Recently, an incredible example of this muscle car legend was unearthed after lying dormant for 16 years, presenting a tantalizing project for enthusiasts and restorers alike. Discovered through a Facebook post, this find is a testament to the enduring allure of barn finds and the potential they hold for bringing automotive history back to life.

This particular Cuda, a storied resident of California's streets, boasts several distinctive features that set it apart. Among these are the sought-after N96 shaker hood, the elegant Rally wood-grain dash, G36 painted racing mirrors, and classic 15x7 Rally wheels, contributing to its menacing and iconic appearance. While the vehicle may have lost its original engine and transmission to time, it houses a formidable replacement—a 1968 440 cubic inch engine paired with a custom-built 727 transmission. This powerhouse combination ensures that, even without its original parts, the car remains a formidable presence on the road.


One notable aspect of this discovery is the mystery surrounding the engine's current condition. Details are scarce, leaving potential buyers to ponder the possibilities of bringing this beast back to its roaring glory. Despite the uncertainty, the allure of its potential and the rarity of such a find have placed its asking price at $64,000. Located in Livonia, Michigan, this red and black marvel is waiting for the right enthusiast to restore it to its rightful status as a racing legend.

The 1970 Plymouth Cuda, especially one equipped with a 440 engine, is more than just a car; it's a symbol of an era when power and performance ruled the streets. This barn find offers a rare opportunity to revive a piece of American muscle car history, promising the thrill of restoration and the eventual reward of cruising in a resurrected icon. The journey from barn to boulevard begins with the vision and passion of those who see beyond the dust and dream of the roar of the engine once more.
