For most purchases, we want value for money. A key element of this is to have options. They form a vital part of what creates a car’s value today’s market, particularly for collectors. The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda is a living example of this. This is one of the 368 automatic hardtops produced in 1970, the first of its two-year production.
The original owner of this car chose a B5 Blue Metallic as the exterior colour, which is eye-catching to say the least. There are 15-inch steel wheels with wide Goodyear Polyglas tires and dog-dish hubcaps. Staying on the outside, this Hemi Cuda has an elastomeric front bumper, colour-keyed racing mirrors and a black hockey stick side stripe.
Going inside, the colour is identical to the outside and features a wood-grain steering wheel, a centre console, wood-knob floor shifter, Rallye dash cluster, bucket seats and pushbutton AM radio. The Hemi Cuda has a 426 Hemi engine with dual four-barrel carburetors and dual exhausts. It’s been very well maintained throughout the years, and something muscle car enthusiasts should consider adding to their collection.
