1970 Plymouth CUDA - BS23H0B - Original 340 4 speed car in Panther Pink. This car is super rare & rust free. I have fender tag, vin tag, door sticker is in place, cowl numbers match, radiator support matches, & transmission numbers match.
Sometime back in the 70's someone sprayed the outside of the car blue. Later sometime in the 80's the car was bought by the previous owner and put on rotisserie stripped down & primed with the intention of returning the car back to its original Panther Pink Color. In the process it appears some very minor repairs were done. About (4 or so) 1"x 1" patches around the car. (2) on the bottom of the windshield, (1) on the front inner fender & (1) on the bottom of the rear window. It also looks like they repaired the passenger side 1/3 or so of the trunk floor. It appears butt welded and looks good decent. These 5 patches could still use final grinding and finishing. As you can see in the picture of the cowl there is 1 more patch to do on the hump under the wiper motor about a 4"x6" or so section, that is the only metal work this car will need. The drivers side rear quarter also has some unfinished filler on it - see picture. The rest of the body is beautiful and appears all original. The underside is also excellent I couldn't even find a pinhole or any pitting throughout the body. The interior of car still has its original Pink paint. The floors are excellent they are just very dirty as you can see in the pictures.
I have 340 motor dated 1/7/71 that supposedly runs and was recently rebuilt (pulled out of another car) see pictures. I have the #'s matching 4 speed , Bell housing, original driveshaft, and what appears to be the original rear assembly. Sure-grip 489 casing not sure of which gears. The interior is complete and decent. I have some extra front seats with pink/red inserts that are in great shape, all the door panels, console, dash, etc... is all there.
I have what I think is the original hood (with correct hood pin holes), the original deck lid in great shape, the original doors indecent shape (no rust), I have a front valance, 1 very nice red line grill, & 2 others that are in good shape, 2 front valances, 1 rear valance, decent bumpers...... See the pictures most of it is shown if you think of anything not in the pictures just ask and I will let you know if I have it.I would say the car is 90-95% complete plus a whole lot of extra stuff included.
