1970 ‘Cuda 340 cid w/ 4 speed

Here we see the results of another great restoration project just sitting and rusting away. This rare factory 4 speed ‘Cuda has a ton of potential, but it also needs a ton of work. It’s missing most of the front end; fenders, grill, bumpers, front valance, etc.

It’s a factory 340 cid 4 barrel Barracuda with heavy duty 4 speed manual transmission. The color is Bright Blue Metallic with medium blue interior. It came from the factory with some nice options including Rallye Instrument Cluster and power brakes.

Scroll down for a break down of the fender tag codes.
