Here we have a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda AAR which looks like it is possibly half way through some semblance of restoration, but it’s now up to the new owner to get this fish back in shape. Plus points for this Cuda are the plenty of images that come with the ad. and spare parts which would come to a pricey some if bought separately.

This is the first time I’ve seen an image of all the matching numbers on a vehicle provided with an ad., and although this is a 340cu. it comes with everything you need to bring it back into shape. There is clearly lots of rust around this car which will put many sellers off, but the rarity of the vehicle in the parts provided should give inspiration to the next owner to bring this back to life.

There are some weird customisations on the car like an odd graphics job on the rear and a weird antenna on the right quarter panel, but with so much work needed on the car in its entirety, these will obviously disappear in the restoration process. With only 1,120 Cudas produced with the four speed manual transmission, a restored version of this Cuda could well be worth its asking price.
