DESCRIPTION OF CAR

   Body:  All original body panels and FY1 Lemon Twist paint.  There are some small paint chips and door dings and some light surface rust on the bottom of the rockers.  The paint has a nice gloss to it.  The car is factory undercoated, as ordered.  The 340 stripes were added by the second owner, the car was ordered with body side molding which deleted the stripe.  The bumpers are original.  The wheel lip moldings were added by the dealer after delivery.  The black hood paint is thin at the cowl, but still presentable.

   Drivetrain:  Numbers matching 340 V-8 and 4-speed transmission with a 3.23 sure grip differential.  The original owner added headers two weeks after taking delivery of the car.  The second owner replaced the headers & exhaust system with a modern TTI aluminized exhaust system and at that time added a mini starter.  The heater core, water pump, spark plugs, filters and carburator have been either replaced or rebuilt by previous owners. Within the last 6 months, I replaced the fuel pump, 2 freeze plugs, clutch, pressure plate and throw out bearing as the original finally went bad.  Engine compartment still retains it's original carburator, hoses, alternator, radiator, fan, voltage regulator, distributor and ignition box.

   Suspension:  The rear springs have been replaced and the drive shaft has been balanced.  Upper and lower control arm bushings, idler arm and shocks were replaced and the car has been aligned.  The brake system has been rebuilt and within the last 6 months it was again inspected and the brake fluid was flushed.

   Wheels:  Rallye wheels with E70-14 RWL bias ply tires are on the car now, but this car was ordered with the steel wheels, hubcaps and blackwall tires.

   Interior:  100% original. The bench seat on the driver side has a 1" section where the seam is starting to separate.  The tach was added by the original owner and remains on the car today.  Everything electrical is in working order, even down to the seatbelt and door buzzers.

  Trunk:  Has it's orginal bumper jack and hardware.  The trunk mat and fiberboard have been replaced.  The spare tire is original, but has been on the ground. There is no rust in the spare tire well.

  Options:  AM radio with rear speaker and fader switch, power disc brakes, 4-speed transmission, manual steering, FY1 Lemon Twist paint, black performance hood paint and the vinyl body side molding.

Items that will be included with the sale of the car are:

   Original Items:  14" steel wheels (4 each), 4 hubcaps, tire, heater core, fuel pump, starter, exhaust manifolds and hardware, exhaust tips, body side molding and fan belt.

  New Items:  Factory reproduction exhaust tips, head pipes for the stock manifolds that will work with the TTI exhaust system, 1 pint of black hood paint, car cover, cooling hose set, fan belt and radiator clamps.

Again, this is a highly documented car with known owner history.  Actual mileage is stated on the title, and good amount of documentation including selling dealership information, picture history and repair receipts are included.  The car has been featured in three publications and was invited to participate in the survivor tent at Chryslers at Carlisle in 2010.  This car has been very well cared for by all of it's owners and runs & drives as it should.

Car is sold AS IS with no warranty.  The buyer is responsible for all transportation arrangements.  Feel free to contact me with any additional questions.

'71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible sells for $3.5M [w/video]

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 09:29:00 EST


We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.

Barrett-Jackson 2014: 1970 Plymouth Hemi Superbird passes half a million dollars

Sat, 18 Jan 2014 17:01:00 EST

The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?
The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.

'Blood Muscle' auction to sell impressive collection of ill-begotten classic cars

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:31:00 EST

The old saying goes that if you can't do the time, don't do the crime. But being a criminal can involve more than just taking a trip to the big house; it can also mean losing possessions purchased from any ill-gotten gains. Still, one man's loss is another's gain, and if you're in Lodi, NJ, on September 12, you stand the chance to buy some of the ultimate muscle cars from the US Marshals in what is being gruesomely nicknamed the Blood Muscle auction.
The grisly moniker was earned because all of the vehicles belonged to the president of a blood testing company who is facing prison time for alleged bribery, according to Hemmings. After all, they are muscle cars bought with actual blood money. The seven-vehicle collection includes some of the ultimate muscle cars ever made, and the original buyer clearly had an eye for rarity.
This cornucopia of V8 power includes a teal 1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429, a 1967 Shelby GT500 Mustang, an orange 1970 Plymouth Superbird, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS convertible and perhaps most prized of all - a trio of 1969 Yenko Chevys with a Chevelle, Nova and Camaro all represented. From the included photos, all of them look to be in fantastic condition.
