” Investment grade Plymouth ‘Cudas have been fetching serious money for years. It seems that, when it comes to muscle cars, there’s just something about big engine, square-jawed Mopars that turns grown men into star struck admirers. And while that’s great for collectors, and the few lucky owners who’ve managed to hang onto their old school E-Body for two or three decades, it tends to leave most classic car enthusiasts out in the cold. Fortunately the term “numbers matching” and the word “Hemi” aren’t the only indicators of this brand’s market success. And if you’re looking for a sweet piece of Detroit metal to show AND tear up the road in, cars like this awesome 440-6/4-speed combo are just as cool and just as much fun!
Is there a cooler Plymouth pigment than this Cuda’s shockingly nice True Blue Metallic urethane? As one of the more subdued and enduring hues to come out of Chrysler’s hip, 1970s ’brighter is better’ mindset, this car’s correct code GB5 blue is some of the smoothest paint to ever adorn classic Mopar metal. Naturally, the relaxing color looks right at home highlighting this frame-up restored BS23V’s laser-straight panels, razor-sharp lines, and rock-solid profile. When expertly applied under traditional black call-outs and buffed to a crystalline shine, it becomes an absolutely fantastic reminder as to just how cool Detroit’s golden era really was. And overall, the car’s high quality finish creates a glossy automotive masterpiece that simply oozes old school appeal! ”
