What Is Special About This Car
The Plum Crazy purple Cuda we have at Skyway Classics is a perfect example of what modifications was done to muscle cars back in the 60s and 70s. It has been restored in such a fashion to exceed all the performance and visual limits that it had as a factory stock Cuda.
The engine is always the heart and soul of any muscle car and this engine is by far a lot more powerful than a stock one back in 1973. The much modified engine started out it's life as a 440 Wedge but now is punched out to a huge 513 cubic inches and contains a supplement of horsepower adding parts such as a performance cam and kit, aluminum Mod Man intake, Holley carb, MSD ignition, reworked fuel supply system, custom performance air cleaner box and system, serpentine belt system, performance heads, headers, aluminum valve covers, and more.
All that power transfers to the rear with a H.D. 6 speed Transmission and Mopar rear end. The exhaust note is great through the performance mufflers and the ride is great also with the chassis and suspension redone.
The superb black bucket seat interior is stock appearing with the addition of of a few wild looking modifications. All you have to do is start up our Cuda and gaze upon the carbon fiber dash with all the performance gauges brilliantly lit up in many mod colors.
Also present is the famous “Pistol Grip” shifter mounted in the factory black floor console.
The body lines on this Cuda look better than they did back in 1973 and the purple paint shines and glistens in the light. A matte black side panel decal is planted on both sides on the rear quarter panel and proclaims this Cuda is powered by a “440” cubic inch engine. If that doesn't warn you the custom front grill hidden headlights, hood scoops, and twin racing mirrors will.
The Cuda rides on custom black mag wheels and fat performance tires and the stopping power is supplies by Wilwood disc brakes.
Sometimes being reserved is good, but that is not the case on the 1973 Plymouth Cuda we have at Skyway Classics. If you do not want to be noticed, do not buy this car. It draws attention with not only it's looks but it's sound and performance too.
