133353 / 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/ah3e2m9
Just one look at this 1970 'Cuda convertible and you know it's special. Not
rare special (although it is one of a kind), but cubic dollars special.
Looking through the receipts, it appears that it would take a $300,000
check to duplicate this machine, and based on the fact that every single
component in it has been modified in some way, I'm not surprised. Stunning
in every way, from the design, to the powerplant, to the gorgeous leather
interior, it's really no surprise that Sony chose this vehicle to be the
centerpiece of their corporate booth at the SEMA Show. Yeah, Sony could
have any car in the world, and they chose THIS one.
It all started out innocently enough, but every panel was massaged and
customized to create a shape that's definitely 'Cuda, but ever so slightly
different at the same time. Of course, all the extraneous trim was shaved,
including door handles, mirrors, side marker lights, and anything else that
would detract from the clean, flowing profile. The paint is straight out of
the Ferrari catalog, finished in two-stage PPG urethane with a lot of extra
metallics and pearls mixed in for good measure. To look good under the
lights at SEMA, it has to be more than simply shiny. This one glows.
Power for a machine like this had to be amazing, but just throwing in a
Hemi crate motor wasn't enough. It started out as a 6.1 liter Hemi out of a
2006 Chrysler, but was torn down and rebuilt with forged internals. A few
different induction systems were tested, but ultimately they settled on a
polished Kenne Bell Supercharger.
Altogether it makes somewhere north of 700 horsepower at the rear
wheels. Custom sheetmetal panels were fabricated for the inner fenders and
radiator shroud, framing the engine like a piece of art. The installation
is incredibly sanitary, and you'll definitely want to display this car with
the hood open every chance you get.
The transmission is a built 727 TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic, but before
you start complaining about the yester-tech transmission, note that it has
a Gear Vendors overdrive unit attached behind it. Capable of withstanding
more than 1000 horsepower, this was really
the only way to get an automatic transmission to survive behind that
A full frame has been inserted under this formerly unit-bodied ragtop, a
custom Art Morrison piece that allows flat floors and some serious
suspension upgrades. Up front, it's all Corvette C5 stuff, with upper and
lower A-arms and adjustable coil-over shocks. In back, there's a
bulletproof Ford 9-inch housing hanging off a triangulated 4-link setup
with more coil-overs and an anti-roll bar. Wheels are gigantic custom-made
hoops designed just for this car by Modern Muscle and measuring in at 19x8
up front and a mammoth 20x12 in back.
If you think the body is art, wait until you see the interior. Inspired by
the Aston-Martin DBS, it's awash in sumptuous Burnt Orange leather that
sizzles against the Ferrari blue paint. There isn't a stock component left
in there, from the grippy bucket seats to the custom fabricated console, to
the dash full of new Stewart Warner gauges. The entertainment system is, of
course, by Sony, and features built-in navigation and a back seat and trunk
full of amplifiers and subwoofers. Overhead there's a thick black canvas
convertible top drops neatly into the well behind the passenger
compartment, where it's protected by a matching boot.
It was only a few weeks ago when I was saying that I think we had
discovered the ultimate pro-touring Mopar. In typical fashion, as soon as
we make a pronouncement like that, cars like this inevitably show up.
Stunning in every regard, masterfully built, and ready to compete, show,
drive, and race, this car takes no prisoners. It's definitely the finest
we've seen, but that's only until the next guy steps up and spends $500,000
to build his. Call today!
