In Oct of 1969 I took delivery of a factory ordered '70 'Cuda. It was triple black with a 383, 4-speed and 3:55 limited slip rear end. The thing that made it a rarity, besides being triple black, was that it had AC but no power steering. (It also got me married, but that's a long story.) When I first ordered it, it didn't have AC either. A week after I ordered it I changed my mind about having a black car in So. Cal without AC and added the AC to the order. Didn't order PS because I didn't want to "rob" any power from the engine. (What an idiot I was).
Also, had the black rubber front bumper, rallye gauges, AM/FM stereo multi-plex radio with rear speakers and rear window defogger. I also ordered 15" steelies with the police hub caps which I promptly junked to add mag wheels.
I keep it three years and then sold it to buy a '66 Toyota Landcruiser with a 327 Corvette engine.
If we had only know then what we know now!
