The Cars of Queens: Part I - BIG MUSCLE
Before BIG MUSCLE had its feet planted firmly in West Coast soil, it was stationed here... in beautiful Queens, NY. Now while most people would never think of Queens as a destination spot, believe me when I tell you that in this land of graffiti, window bars and padlocks lies some of the coolest muscle cars that you're ever likely to see. This is Part I of BIG MUSCLEs two part episode on the "Cars of Queens". In this episode we take a look at a wicked 1966 Chevrolet Chevelle SS drop-top and a stunning 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T. Both cars have been updated accordingly in all departments and both cars were conceived to be, at their cores, bad-ass New York street fighters.

Triple Black Attack: 1970 440 6-Pack 'Cuda - BIG MUSCLE
Each and every muscle car enthusiast has that one experience that has helped define the way in which they view the automobile. For Northern California's John Cross that experience came by way of riding in the back of his cousins 1970 440 6-Pack Plymouth 'Cuda when he was a kid. It was a car that provided him with memories, stories and of course, a goal - that being, to one day own the very car which got his engine running all those years ago. It's now 2012, 42 years after that first faithful ride in the very 'Cuda you're about to see. This time however it resides in John's garage, not his cousins, which can mean only one thing... Sometimes dreams do come true.

If you look up Vanguard Motor Sales in a thesaurus, one of the first words you might find is "Mopar". That's because we've spent the few years bringing Mopar fans the greatest array of exceptional cars ever offered for sale. This stunning purple Supercharged 1968 Plymouth Barracuda continues that tradition and presents you, the serious collector, with yet another chance to expand your collection.
This Cuda went through an extensive restoration in 2007. The solid metal body is straight, clean and rust free. There is no bondo, no waves and no ripples. After all that hard work, the car was sprayed with its beautiful purple metallic paint. The result is a fantastically straight Cuda that looks like it could have rolled out of Dodge Main yesterday. Panel gaps, door and trunk lips and margins are exceptional, the doors and trunk open and close with very little effort and the cars deep purple metallic paint has little to no defects or wear. All of the chrome and stainless is equally as nice.
The first thing you will notice under the hood is that Paxton Supercharger, attached to the 340ci motor. The casting number on the motor is 2780930-340. Turnbuckle ties are holding this baby down. Once you get past that sweet looking Supercharger, you will see that this Cuda also is wearing a MSD Ignition, a remote oil filter, breather canister and an Optima battery. There are coated headers as well. Make no mistake; this car runs just as well today as it did when it rolled into the dealership in 1970 and it's one of the few muscle cars that can still run with the best from Detroit.
The bottom of the car has been well taken care of as well. Matched up to that 340 Supercharged motor, is a 4-speed transmission, which shifts awesome. The casting number for the trans is 99129, and there is another stamp with # 9B327429. There is a posi-traction rear end, with what we believe to be 3:50 gears. There are some minor repairs in both driver side and passenger side rockers and one small patch on the floorboard, all of which have been done extremely well. There is no rust to be found, the undercarriage of this Cuda is solid! A new stainless steel gas line and new gas tank were included in the restoration, as well as a Flowmaster Exhaust system (2.5" out back and 3" feeders). Cross drilled rotors and front disc brakes keep this Cuda between the lines. The upper control arms are tubular, there are new spindles and eurethane bushings on the radius arms. The front fenders have no signs of repairs, they look to be original metal. Sitting on all four corners are 17" Billet wheels and BF Goodrich G-Force tires.
Inside the car has been completely restored and features beautiful white upholstery, and headliner. Sitting between the bucket seats is a beautiful console and Hurst shifter. In front of the driver is a stunning wood Grant steering wheel and a set of Auto-Meter Pro-Comp Ultra-Lite gauges. In the center of the dash there is a Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo system, which sounds great, and underneath that is a duo of aftermarket gauges. All of the interior lights work and the black carpet is in beautiful shape. The fold-down back seat gives plenty of extra storage for your cooler and folding chairs. This car is ready for a summer cruise, and the local car show!
This is a rare, Supercharged 340 Cuda that is 100% complete inside and out. Nothing has been left unrestored and the Cuda is guaranteed to please even the most discerning collector, as a center piece to any Mopar or classic car collection. Call today! We are available 7 Days a week 248-974-9513

For 1966 the 390-cubic-inch V8's power was increased to 315 bhp (235 kW). The larger 428-cubic-inch (7.0 L) V-8 became optional, rated at 345 gross horsepower (257.4 kW) and providing a notable improvement in 0-60 acceleration (to about 9 seconds). A new Town Hardtop model was offered, featured a roof with blind quarter panels for a more 'formal' look (at the cost of rear visibility). The Landau model was replaced by the Town Landau, which retained the previous model's padded roof and landau S-bars, but applied them to the Town Hardtop's formal roof. The Town Landau was by far the best-selling model, accounting for 35,105 of the 1966 model's 69,176 sales.
