V8 Cuda Series Hardtop Coupe
Chassis #: BS23R0B146640
Sold for $170,000 at 2014 Gooding & Company - The Scottsdale Auction.
This Plymouth Hemi Cuda was constructed in 1970 at the Hamtramck assembly plant and was originally equipped with Plymouth's top-of-the-line 'R'-code 426 Hemi V8 and a four-speed manual gearbox, making it one of only 284 examples specified with this combination.

The Hemi 'Cuda was equipped with power-assisted front disc brakes, 'shaker' hood, bucket seats, center console, elastomeric bumpers, Track Pack rear end, Rallye instrument cluster, rear window defogger, and a solid-state radio with stereo tape deck. The MSRP for this car was $5,361.85, over $200 more than the 'Cuda's base price.

The car is finished in Rallye Red with a black vinyl-covered top and sport stripes. It was sold to its first owner through Fair Chrysler Plymouth Inc. of Sacramento. Shortly after its original sale, the car was repossessed and subsequently resold on November 20th of 1970 to Andrew Farrar, a farmer living in Willows, California.

To help encourage unwitting competitors, Mr. Farrar replaced the 426 badges on the hood scoop with those from a 383 and removed the telling Hemi graphics.

Mr. Farrar drove the 'Cuda for the next two decades, eventually retiring the 49,000 mile car to a barn on his property in 1989. In 2008, Mr. Farrar decided to remove the car from storage and sent it for a comprehensive service that included attention to the brake, cooling and fuel system. A short time later, it was sold to a Southern California collector.

This car is currently a three-owner vehicle that remains in unrestored condition. The overhead valve 'Hemi' V8 engine displaces 426 cubic-inches and is fitted with dual Carter AFB 4-barrel carburetors. The 425 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual gearbox.

The car has quick-release hood pins, shaker hood, white-letter tires, and Hurst pistol-grip shifter.
