We are presenting this very nice Cuda tribute. The owner has done a great deal of work on the car. Full door panels are an original option. There is a very small tear on the drivers seat. The steering column does have some chips. This interior has been partially restored, but much of it has not. The original console is showing a bit of pitting on the metal shifter frame. The original engine according to the data plate was a 318. The actual engine is a 360cu in. The car is badged as a 340 Cuda.
The 360 runs great. This engine runs strong and performs very well. Below is the Fender Tag decode of this Barracuda. You can see it is very original except for the engine. It was a 318 from the factory. The car was built on Sept 10th 1970. It it turning 50 years old this month. There is a small dent under the rear valance. The undercarriage is in good condition. You can see most of the new suspension parts. There appears to be some very tiny bubbles in the paint right behind the rear wheel on the drivers side. That is all we found.
These are factory wheels. The photos that follow, are the custom wheels that the owner had made. They look like the originals, but are polished aluminum and are 17". There are 5 and are included with the car. The owner chose to have these 17" wheels made to look just like the originals, but of course the tires would have to be changed as well. There is a small area of touch up on the rear spoiler. The lenses are missing on the directional signals under the hood. It is a minor item and there are only a few other small things wrong with the car.
The paint shows very well. The car does not appear to have ever been a frame off restoration, but it is still in very good condition. The nice thing about this car is that it is a great driver and also nice enough to show with a few tiny improvements.
