Up for sale is my 1970 Cuda 440-6 Pack, which I purchased in Sacramento, California in 2005. This car was ordered new at Ainsworth Chrysler-Plymouth in Roseville, California and spent its entire life in California until I purchased and trailered it to Indiana in 2005. The car spent much of its time prior to my ownership in a classic car museum in Sacramento, California as the previous owner never drove it and wanted it maintained in a climate controlled environment. The history of this car is known back to 1972, when it was purchased by the 2nd owner. I am the 5th owner. Previous owners are available to discuss the cars history, if needed.
The car was fully rotisserie restored in the late 1990’s by a well-known Mopar Enthusiast. It has only had 1 repaint. During the restoration, all the original rust-free parts were re-installed and restored where needed. The car still retains the near perfect, show quality PPG base/clear paint in B5 that was applied during the restoration. The interior is original to the car, except for the seat covers, carpet and dash (recovered by Just Dashes). The dash frame still retains the factory applied black paint. All body panels on the car are original, except for the passenger side fender and trunk lid, which were only replaced because they were dented and original parts were easier to source in the 1990’s. An original California rust-free fender and trunk lid were used during the restoration. The original rear valence was replaced with an NOS piece to allow the usage of chrome tips. All other panels on the car are as it was built on November 21st, 1969. When I purchased the car, it had 31,957 miles and it now has 32,101 miles…meaning I have hardly drove it.
The factory applied door VIN sticker (vertical mount since car was produced at the LA plant) is untouched and still affixed to the driver’s door. This is a two fender tag car, verified with the cowl vin, core support and dash VIN numbers. Additionally, all Shaker parts are original to the car. Since this car was built at the LA manufacturing plant, and they had a no paper waste policy, the car did not come with a build sheet from new. The car still retains the original seat foam/sub-structure (only the covers were replaced) and glove box lining, and it's clear that a build sheet was never present in these locations.
The car retains its original numbers matching 6-Pack engine and 4:10 Dana 60 rear end, and a correct 3410672 727 6-Pack transmission, since it did not contain the original transmission when I purchased it. The factory VIN on the replacement transmission is just a few cars away from mine (0E12XXXX), meaning it is date code correct. My cost for the replacement transmission was $5000.00 prior to the rebuild because of the original VIN sequence. The engine, transmission and Dana 60 have been fully rebuilt by shops that specialize in Mopar driveline restoration. All internal driveline components were replaced with NOS parts. The driveshaft is the correct “775” stamped unit with NOS “DETROIT” U-joints. The engine, Dana 60 and leaf springs are completely restored with the correct gloss level paints assembly line plating and assembly processes. The 3 Holley date coded 6-pack carbs have just been refurbished by Scott Smith at Harms automotive. The car runs very well, and is very fast.
Since this car spent it’s life in California, there are no pits on the driveline components, such as trans mount, engine cross member, drive shaft, bumper brackets, floor, trunk, differential, etc. All steel lines are original to this car (brake and fuel). Overall, the body is near perfect, because of its care over the last several decades.
Over the past 13 years, I have replaced many parts with NOS OE assembly line date coded for this car. The total for those parts alone is over $60,000. The entire driveline has been restored with correct NOS parts, down to each and every bearing, seal, clamp, clip, and screw. All paint dabs and colors were accurately recreated. I even hand-stamped my own rubber “KV” fuel lines to match the originals I removed.
A list of the major NOS items that have been installed can be viewed below, but it is not comprehensive.
More photos can be provided upon request. I can be reached at 317-417-7564 for more information. I am a private seller and this is my only classic car. Thank you.
