"It's not often we go all gooey over a bit of American Muscle. But this slick, black on black edit of a 1970 Pontiac Firebird by an outfit called Allspeed Customs makes us go all weak at the knees. According to "
In the process of research for our forthcoming seventies edition, we came across what is definitely my favourite piece of American muscle.
The 1970 ‘Hemi ‘Cuda’ was the top of the range sports version of Plymouth’s workhouse the Barracuda, and was powered, naturally by the Chrysler version of the V8 Hemi (below).
Whilst most American muscle cars come across as brutal and one dimensional, there’s something about the ‘Cuda’s lines that look almost graceful in an (almost) European kind of way.
See the footage of a beautiful black version of the notchback two-door below to see how much grace the car posesses. We think you’ll agree it glides along the yank highway with uncommon poise.
