1970 Cuda (PROJECT CAR)
« on: October 08, 2010 - 12:00:28 PM »
I have a 1970 Cuda im looking to get rid of.

 





History of the car: We bought it for a parts car. It was a basket deal with a bunch of parts i needed for our 1971 cuda build that is posted in the member showcase. Now that we are done with our car, i am looking to get rid of this one. When we bought it the car was sitting under a HUGE maple tree in mcherny, IL with a running 440 in it. The car hasnt been moved for 20 years just sitting there to rot.

 

We bought the car for $10,000 with all of the parts included and now that we have took things off the car im willing to part with it for $7,000 with the 440 motor and 4 speed trans

$5,000 as a rolling chassis.

here are acouple pictures of the car:

Is it an original 440 car?

as far as i know its oringal. The motor matches date to the car. The trans and motors match too but there is no fender tag to verify it.  :swear:

Do you have a clear title?  What are the 1st 5 digits of the VIN?

Unlike Challengers, the Barracuda / Cuda line was available with the fender top signals regardless of hood type.  ;)

"I have a full 70 Cuda with numbering match 340 and a 440 actually in the car.
I bought the car to restore and just finished our first cuda, just dont want to do another one. If you need any mopar parts i have them."

340? 440? Which is it?   :dunno:

He has been selling all the extra parts out of it in the Parts section I noticed, wouldn't it have been better to keep it complete? He wants a thousand bucks for the seats out of it, they need reupholstering too.

lol, that's crazy. I got my seats from a local guy for $200, and I'd say they were at about 80% condition. Doesn't matter because I am redoing all the upholstery anyways.
Cuda is gone :(

Lets try this again after reading my orginal post it was very vauge. I also have much more pictures for you.

It a 2 owner car. we are the second owners. It was left under a huge maple tree for 20 years and hasn't be moved since 1989. When we bought the car we had full intention of rebuilding and sending through barret jackson but after finishing our 71 cuda we have decieded to hold off for a AAR cuda.
 
I can sell this car 3 different ways its truly up to the person that is buying it. Here is how i suggest and you can figure out which way you want to go.
 
1. Currently the car has a Running 440 with a 4 speed manaul transmission (numbers matching transmission) in it. I had to use the carb and manafold for my cuda so that is the only thing taken off the car since we bought it. If you want the car like this ill sell it too you as we bought it $7,000
 
2. I can take out the 440 and transmission. Sell the car as a roller with everything else in it for $5,000 (grill, exterior, dash, rearend,hood etc..)
 
3. I have the numbers matching orginal 340 motor and already have the numbers matching transmission in it.  I'd sell this for $10,000
 
Also, i have some extra pieces that are going to come with the car.

right now the car has a 440 in but its a orginal 1970 340 4 speed which i have. NUMBERS MATCHING!
