Ted Lindsten is one of the world’s leading muscle car enthusiasts and classic car collectors. He’s perhaps best known for his wonderful collection of classic Mopar metal – which he hopes to sell off at Russo and Steele’s upcoming Scottsdale auction in January.
Among those cars for sale will be a 1970 Plymouth ‘Cuda 440/6, which is just one of 902 Hemi ‘Cudas produced for the 1970 model year. It underwent a complete rotisserie restoration in 2006 and was also inspected closely by Chrysler expert Galen Govier, ensuring its concourse-like condition.
This particular car is painted in ‘In-Violet’ and also features black ‘Hockey Stripes’. Other options include black bucket-seat interior with Rallye instruments, the Super Track Pack, power brakes, a ‘Shaker’ hood, hood pins, manual steering, and a painted racing mirror. The car is also a 4-speed manual example, which may up its credibility when it crosses the auction block next month.
“We are simply elated to be offering the Lindsten Collection at Russo and Steele in Scottsdale, Arizona this January,” said Russo and Steele Consignment Director John Bemiss. “Classic Mopars have certainly been one of the strongest segments of not only the once again exploding Muscle Car market, but of the entire collector automobile market as a whole. These are blue chip offerings that have been collected by one of the world’s most astute Mopar collectors and they represent the tip top of the pyramid of collectability.”
The 1970 Hemi Cuda and the rest of the Lindsten Collection will be sold at Russo and Steele Scottsdale from January 27th to the 31st.
