We’ll start by telling you that it costs a whopping amount of money, $209,900 to be more precise, which is about as much as a brand new Lamborghini Huracan. The eBay listing reveals that the 1970 Plymouth Barracuda is located in West Palm Beach, Florida, and that it has only 59 miles (95 km) on the odometer.

A fully restored classic American muscle car, this Cuda sports a custom orange paint finish on the outside, a few black accents, chrome trim, and a ragtop. The wheels are custom, the vendor says, and they hide a more modern braking system, with discs on both axles. Rack and pinion steering is on deck too, together with a 528 C.I. HEMI engine, hooked up to a five-speed manual transmission.

With the white leather upholstery wrapped around the front and rear seats, and door cards, the cockpit looks just as lively as the exterior. It has a custom steering wheel, nicely restored dashboard panel complete with the right gauges, and a few metal accents. Since you’re looking at a 51-year old car, you know that things are pretty basic when it comes to the gear, but it does feature a modern stereo.

If the classic car Gods have smiled upon you and you have decided that this Plymouth Barracuda is your next ride, then you should sign the papers in the presence of a lawyer. Not that there’s anything wrong with the used car dealer behind the ad, which otherwise has several high-end vehicles in its portfolio, including a 1936 Ford Hotrod for almost $100,000, and 2010 Bugatti Veyron for $2,175,000, but better to be safe than sorry, right?
