Constructed at Chrysler’s Hamtramck, MI, assembly plant with a scheduled production date of October 6, 1969, this ’Cuda left the factory finished in Code EV2 “Tor-Red” Hi-Impact paint. It was ordered for maximum performance with legendary Code E74 dual-carbureted 426 Street Hemi V8 engine breathing through an aggressive “Shaker” hood scoop and mated to an A833 4-speed manual transmission. The standard equipment package that was part of the Hemi 4-speed power combo includes a Code A33 Trak Pak featuring the venerable 9.75-inch Dana 60 rear axle with Sure Grip and 3.54:1 gears, the N51 Maximum Cooling package, N65 7-Blade Torque Drive Fan, S15 Hemi suspension with front sway bar, and S25 Firm Ride shock absorbers.

As presented, the Hemi ’Cuda continues to benefit from a high-quality restoration to factory specifications. It is firmly believed that the current mileage of 19,850 is accurate and original. A spectacular example of one of the ultimate American factory supercars ever produced, this rare and authentic 4-speed 1970 Hemi ’Cuda represents a truly significant opportunity for muscle-car aficionados and enthusiasts.
