The Hemi 'Cuda may very well sit at the top of the muscle car food chain and this stunning 1970 Plymouth 'Cuda Pro Touring HEMI delivers in every way that matters: loads of power from a Kenne Bell Supercharged 6.1L HEMI fuel-injected V8, a Tremec 6-speed manual gearbox, limited-edition Chip Foose Hemisfear Lime paint, a performance suspension, and a sporty leather/suede interior. Quite honestly, they just don't come much nicer than this, and with only 1624 miles on the entire build, this magazine centerfold, SEMA feature car, TV star, and multiple trophy winner is the ultimate show car.
Built as a joint venture between Time Machines and Mr. Norm's, this limited-edition project is a famous member of one of "Mr. Norm's Super Cars", and has graced magazines, TV shows, and top car shows and exhibitions across the US. It would take us three ads to fully espouse all of this Cuda's virtues, but knowing that it won "Top Muscle Car" at 2022 Texas Good Guys and was promoted on Wayne Carini's "Chasing Classic Cars" should give you an idea about how special it truly is. The body is laser-straight, the gaps are as symmetrical as we've ever seen, and all the panels line up perfectly, or at least as 'perfect' (a word we never really use) as they get on a muscle car. What makes all that so incredibly special is that the majority of the sheetmetal, sans the cowl above the front grille, the hood, and the rear valance, is original to this car. That means this was an incredibly slick 'Cuda before the restoration ever started, and with those great bones, the best classic car builders on Earth spent countless hours and spared no expense to put together the nicest E-body on the market. High-impact, limited-run Chip Foose BASF 3-stage Hemisfear Lime Pearl paint is the color that's searing your eyes, and as you might expect, gallon after gallon was expertly laid down to show standards. In fact, the only thing we could find to complain about was a small scuff in the driver's door jamb and a couple dead bugs on the windshield. Yeah, it's that nice. The black billboard graphics were also painted on and are the perfect complement to the gorgeous finish, while the addition of the dual-scoop hood and hood pins, gloss-black decklid spoiler, and custom rear valance with integrated exhaust cut-outs all add to this Mopar's off-the-charts curb appeal. There's not a ton of chrome, but the shiny bumpers, glass surrounds, drip rails, and door handles were polished up to a blinding shine, and the silver front grille insert and corresponding tailpanel are 'Cuda staples that prove that the builder's respected the original Mopar design despite their illustrious restomod-building credentials.
At first glance, the interior might almost look stock, but once you're behind the wheel you'll realize that those modern bucket seats are wrapped in high-end black leather hides with suede inserts, the sculpted dash and custom center console is stitched in high-end black leather, and the rear seat was upholstered to match. A sporty, leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel anchors the cockpit, while a full complement of AutoMeter gauges were arrayed inside a carbon-fiber bezel just beyond it. The custom center console provides extra storage and houses billet switches for the power windows/locks, a carbon-fiber pistol-grip 6-speed shifter, and a 6-inch JVC multi-media stereo that powers Sony subwoofers and amplifiers in custom enclosures in the trunk. The front buckets are power actuated, a full Vintage Air HVAC system was integrated into the leather dash, and Chip Foose loved the color so much he couldn't help but let us know next to his autograph on the dash. The door panels were covered in the same high-end hides as the seats, plush black carpets insulate the floors and are fitted with custom mats, and the taut headliner above shows that nothing was overlooked in this top-dollar, beautifully tailored interior.
The engine is a snarling Gen III 6.1L HEMI V8 modified with a Kenne Bell Twin-Screw Mammoth Supercharger that's boasting an insane 725HP with 12PSI boost, and is reported to be able to handle up to 1K horsepower for those that really have a death wish. If you've been longing for a 'Cuda that can accelerate like a rocket, this one fits the bill, and that's before you even consider cycling through the available NOS in the trunk that's never been hooked up. With a long list of modifications, it delivers the neck-snapping performance for which the Hemi was justifiably famous... and then some! The engine was built for combat and features modern fuel injection, a billet serpentine belt system, a cold-air intake system, upgraded MSD coilpacks and electronics, and a long list of upgrades that add up to huge horsepower and torque production. Yeah, it's nasty. With the curb weight of a small block it handles exceptionally well and it cackles and snarls thanks to ceramic-coated long-tube headers and a custom H-pipe dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers. And while you're looking around under there, check out the insanely clean floors, the custom tubular front suspension, giant sway bars, and performance 4-link out back. Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes stops it on a dime, power steering flicks it in-and-out of corners, and adjustable coilovers at each corner help set the killer stance. The Viper Tremec 6-speed gearbox makes the HEMI easy to live with and powers a heavy-duty 8 3/4 rear end that handles all that added power with great aplomb. Slick Bonspeed wheels punctuate the restomod look and carry 245/35/19 front and 285/30/20 rear Michelins with plenty of grip.
This is an extremely impressive car in every possible way and it's basically only been driven to shows (where it dominates the field). This is a no-compromises 'Cuda that will be dropping jaws for years to come. Call now!
