What to expect at the Detroit Auto Show

Detroit may be steeped in its automotive past, but the Motor City is not feeling all that nostalgic about its contributions to the car industry. In the past, the North American International Auto show has been defined by muscle cars, concepts that celebrated iconic brand history, and pure unadulterated horsepower. But as the week of vehicle debuts kicks off at Cobo Hall, the news is all about the practical present, and a nod toward the uncertain future.

1970 Mercury Cyclone GT

Very sharp car! That gunshot grill as well as the rear tail light pods are unique and set this car apart from the rest of the pack. Since this is a 1970 model the days of high compression were still in effect. With an impressive compression ratio that 429 must put out a fair amount of power, at least 300 horsepower. All in all a great restoration with minor tasteful upgrades that only enhance the value of this Cyclone GT.

  1. Kid used to bring one of these to Downtown Spokane ( Riverside ) to cruise the “gut”. Always pulled over because of overheating. Traffic was jam packed and moved very slowly. Most cars survived it. ;)

  2. My brother had a 70 Cyclone with the 429 CJ. I have 2 friends here in my county now that have them also. Great cars with uniqueness in many ways. I want 1 now!!

Ford Mustang 1970- Boss 302 images

The Boss 302 Mustang (Hi-Po)  engine is manufactured by taking the Ford Windsor (assembly plant) block from the  289 then adding the 351 Cleveland head with its larger valves to create the 302. This is an engine that will be  formidable competition for the Chevy small blocks and any other competition in the SCCA Trans-Am series. The resulting 302 (5.0 L) engine is the maximum size allowed that will fit the homogenization guidelines of the Trans-Am series.  The Boss 302 also has improved aerodynamics and superior handling with the intent of eclipsing the Camaro, not only on the race tracks, but on the street as well.

Thanks to Gateway Classic Cars for these great images.

    The Boss 302’s did eclipse the Camaros on the street, as well as the track. I’ve owned mine since 1970 now and I’ve used and bent every rule the NHRA would let me to go as fast as possible and still be able to run in “B” Stock. In adding to your comments about the Boss 302 being a “formidable” engine, these vehicles dominated the SCCA – Trans Am series, starting with Parnelli Jones. They have a special sound, killer 1st gear and a classic that looks fast, even when they’re parked. Great article guys!

1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda

Pegged at selling prices going up to $4Million, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda is undoubtedly the world's most expensive muscle car. With only 14 units ever made, prices are sure to shoot up when the demand for a Barracuda arises in the market. The small number of the 1970 Barracuda, however, is an ironic twist to the price it now enjoys. Back in the day, it had low market reception, leading to a very limited number of 1970 Barracudas released.

Itis the first model of the third generation of Barracudas that circulated from 1970 until 1974. It was also the first Barracuda to totally deviate from the Plymouth Valiant design where earlier models were based on. It comes in two variants - a two-door coupe and a two-door convertibles. The convertible ones were made exclusively at the Hamtramck plant in Detroit, Michigan. The 1970 Barracuda was also the first model to use the E-body designed by John E. Herlitz based on the modified Chrysler B platform. It offers a lower yet wider version of the existing platform.

The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda comes in three variants - the lower-priced base model or the BH, the sportscar model or the 'Cuda BS, and the luxurious 'Cuda Gran Coupe or the 'Cuda BP. It must be noted that the nickname 'Cuda was primarily used to pertain to the more luxurious, high-performance models of the 1970 Barracuda.

Powered by a 7.0-liter V8 Hemi engine, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda will develop up to 425 hp. It is equipped with solid disc front brakes and drums to the rear. The three-speed manual transmission of this muscle car can accelerate from 0 miles per hour (mph) to mph in 5.8 seconds. It also fares well on the quarter mile test with an average time of 14 seconds at a speed of 102 mph. This is actually very fast for a car made in 1970, with most of its counterparts falling way behind the speeds recorded for the 'Cuda.

Designed to be a fast car, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda made its racing debut at the All-American Racers' Trans-am series of the same year of its release. Drivers Swede Savage and Dan Gurney raced similar factory-sponsored units that earned them three pole positions in the league. Although neither car took home the championship, one of them finished second in the the competition.

Another four 1970 'Cudas found themselves racing for the Chrysler France team from 1970 to 1973. The team's then-director, Henri Chemin, piloted the first car before selling it off to J. F. Mas. The 1970 'Cuda raced two more years with Mas before it was set into retirement. Those two years won Mas and his 'Cuda one hill-climbing championship, three on-track ones, and four French Group 1 Class trophies.

Although the most expensive 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda in record sold for $4Million, most units easily sell for half that price despite the car's condition. This year, a 1970 'Cuda is being advertised at a going price of $3.2Million. With the number of muscle car fanatics fighting to own this particular unit, prices may rise up to the record $4Million or more.
