Is there another High Impact color that is more well-known than Plum Crazy? As one of the most desirable shades to emerge from Chrysler’s cool 1970s ‘brighter is better’ philosophy, code FC7 purple is undoubtedly the most iconic paint to ever grace classic Mopar metal. And when done perfectly beneath traditional Hemi side stripes, it serves as a stunning reminder of just how insane the muscle car era truly was.

The amazing bombshell has taken a great deal of effort and money to create. As a result, one of the best Hemi memorials on the planet has been created. Dressed in seductive Violet color and rotisserie restored, along with an era-appropriate 426/4-speed transmission. The 1970 Plymouth Barracuda HEMI Cuda Tribute Restomod is an easy way for any die-hard Chrysler lover to become acquainted with the collector car hierarchy.

Near the front of this rotisserie-restored ‘Cuda, a typical Redline Grille supports clear headlights and a small “PLYMOUTH” script sandwiched between a showroom-fresh bumper, and stylish fog lights, and clear parking lamps. At the top of those lamps, a typical Shaker Hood separates little lanyards from factory tinted glass-framed in well-maintained stainless steel. Polished mirrors on the sides reflect a black vinyl top, while textured rocker guards frame stainless wheel moldings and satin door handles. Additionally, the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda HEMI Cuda Tribute Restomod features a conventional black valance with like-new taillights. Additionally, a small “Cuda” logo is mounted above the bright exhaust tips, along with a second show-worthy bumper.

Remove the pins from this ‘Cuda’s shiny hood to reveal 426 cubic inches of properly rebuilt Hemi wearing the legendary, era-correct 2468330 casting number. When equipped with a COMP solid lifter cam, the renowned elephant block comes to life! High-performance hardware for the mill is housed in the brilliant Hemi Orange block. Above low restriction exhaust manifolds, this suspends an appealing set of Original-style valve covers. A heavy-duty radiator cools the resulting combustion. Finally, a reproduction Chrysler hose and an old-school squeeze clamp complete the look.

On the ground floor, this 1970 Plymouth Barracuda HEMI Cuda Tribute Restomods. The repaired chassis is as clean and straightforward as the external panels and engine. The high-winding large block generates power via a conventional A833 four-speed transmission. This drives a genuine Dana 60 Sure-Grip axle, which is equipped with a Posi traction differential and large 4.10 gears. Power front discs and heavy-duty drums provide braking.

Turning becomes easier with the factory power steering installed between Hemi torsion bars, Hemi torque boxes, and an authentic Hemi K-member. Charred dinosaurs pass via a conventional H-shaped crossover on their way to aluminized pipes and stock replacement mufflers. Additionally, 15-inch Rallye wheels spin fresh F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around polished trim rings and silver centers at the corners of this Plymouth’s over-restored floorboards.

This convertible’s interior is a totally restored Black vinyl that is basic, utilitarian, and looks as good as new. The top dead center, high-back bucket, and rear bench seats are all in excellent condition and exhibit very little wear. Between those seats, a sleek Hurst Pistol Grip Shifter is anchored in the vibrant wood trim by an optional console. A warp-free dash hangs familiar Rallye telemetry over a vintage Chrysler Solid State radio in front of those seats. Additionally, a wood-rimmed steering wheel in front of the driver fits the car’s contoured dashboard and streamlined instrument panel well.

When coupled to either a four-speed manual transmission or a three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, the 426 HEMI enabled the Cuda to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in under 5.8 seconds, a record for the age. The sprint from zero to one hundred miles per hour took 13 seconds, and the highest speed was 117 miles per hour.

The Cuda and the Barracuda are NOT interchangeable vehicles!! The Cuda is a limited-edition tiny muscle car that was produced for a brief period of time. They produced only about 300 Cuda’s in total.

Plymouth AAR ‘Cuda 1970. Plymouth chose to recognize those achievements on the track in 1970 by offering a dealer-exclusive streetcar named the AAR, which stands for All-American Racers.
