It's FOR SURE THE BEST AND MOST RARE COLOR COMBO FOR a 71 CUDA !, so if you want the best looking and one of the fastest original production 71 Cuda's in the world today, THIS IS IT!
The car underwent a recent full rotisserie restoration and is an award-winning car loaded with Nos original parts. From the original and factory correct and matching transmission, engine, intake and six pack carbs, exhaust manifolds, water pump, wiper motor to its original Shaker hood this car are very correct and highly detailed. Its restored with the best possible quality in mind and seldom did we see such an original car. True Concours condition car al the way inside, underside and outside. All the body panels, doors, floors and trunk floor, quarter panels and frame rails, everything seems to be original and unmolested and damage free. This car had survived the years before it was restored so well thanks to the dry climate in New Mexico where the car was found. Not often do we come across such an original car and very detailed as this one is.
A stunning car, in performance and looks and a rare sight, to see, especially in Europe! The 1971 Plymouth Cuda's are highly wanted and very desirable. With there one year only specific dual headlights and special grill and split taillights, the fender gills, and re-designed upholstery, they were one of the most, if not THE best-looking muscle cars of there era. The base cars were the Barracuda models with the more low-performance suspension and engine combinations, and basic interiors with no special upgrades. The performance models were the Plymouth Barracuda CUDA's which were equipped and could be equipped with everything you could want on a performance car in those days.
Starting off with the performance 340 V8-245hp rated engine and the 300 hp rated 383 Big block, the real performance cars were the 440-six pack big block cars and of course the world famous 426 Hemi. With the 440-4bbl single carb no longer available in the 1971 E body cars, the best value for money was the 390+HP 440 six-pack engine with its 3x2bbl Holley carbs and special air intake ( hence the name +6 or sixpack). As the 426 Hemi had a very high price tag and was not even faster in base factory set-up against the 440-6 cars seeing these engines were lighter and thereby just as fast. With the addition of the unique air grabber air intake, the true performance of the 440-6 engines was estimated closer to 430+HP than the factory given 395hp. And in the quarter mile, the 440-6 cars were therefore slightly faster than the Hemi versions how cool is that.
The 440-sixpack cars used the same extra strengthened body and suspension/brake packages as the Hemi cars, and are there for not the same as the 340 or 383 lower performance cars that fail these options. We can tell you that driving a 440-six-pack car is a treat !, the torque of these engines is amazing and as soon as the engine vacuum drops ( around 2500 rpm) the two additional carbs open up and give you a true "kick in the butt" sensation and the car leaves like a bat out of hell. The sound of these engines is also one of a kind and very addictive!, there is nothing like it! With the upcoming fuel crisis, the sales of these high output muscle cars dropped dramatically and the end of these amazing high-performance cars was in sight which explains the rarity of this car.
With only 129! 440-6 automatic ever produced Cuda's build against 890 ( 9x more) in 1970, this Cuda is a very rare car indeed. And taking this car additional shaker hood option, rally dash and great color combination in mind its even more unique indeed. Of course, the ultimate Hemi 426 cars are even more rare, with only 48 units build for the automatic coupes. Prices for these Hemi cars are extremely high with cars being sold for more than several millions $ depending on the cars options and overall originality. This particular Cuda 440-6 is priced WELL below that but might well be just as rare. Seeing its unique color combination, options and completely original and numbers matching drivetrain, we believe this car is a true one of one car in the world and besides that, it's also completely restored and in fantastic condition.
Who knows how many of the only 129 ! ever build cars are still in existence today ?, but we think not many and especially not in this amazing factory new condition and its factory original engine and driveline AND with the highly desirable shaker hood. The 440- sixpack engines were used a lot in races and many of the cars equipped with them lost there original engines and transmissions because of that. This car however still carries its original driveline and was obviously never raced.The car is also a true factory ordered high impact special option Curious yellow paint car! with ultra-rare white bucket seats and floor console and rally dash its just stunning. It just can't get any better than this. The fact that its also completely original and meticulously restored is an additional bonus.
The added but correct factory original front and rear painted elastomeric bumpers and billboards make this car even more appealing and special than it already is. WOW, what a car!, We're VERY proud to be able to present this car to our clients, it's a fantastic car to own and drive and one of the best and most collectible cars around. PTTM has completely tested the car and be sure that it doesn't only look good but it also drives amazingly and just plain perfect.
With 71' Hemi Cuda's being almost out of reach because of there extreme sales prices, this car is a fantastic chance to own one of the fastest and most spectacular muscle cars ever built. Prices for these cars are still "affordable" but with the Hemi car prices going through the roof, the sixpack cars will soon be out of reach for many as well. Its a fantastic car for any collector and a very interesting investment in both money and fun seeing prices will keep rising as they have done so for the last decades.
It might well be that this car will be just as priceless as there Hemi brothers soon. So don't hesitate to long as these cars will also hit the 250k+ mark soon, as we have seen them get sold already for just under 200k so be sure that this car is absolutely a great investment. Especially in this rare color combination and with its factory shaker hood and rally dash, floor shifter, bucket seat interior and factory original rear Go wing. Options that only a very few 71' Cuda's had!. A copy of the original dealer invoice and brochure come with the car!
More than 165k alone ( without the car itself ) was invested in the restoration! and its one of the best (if not the best ) we ever had the pleasure of offering to our clients ! and when sold we will never ever find this same kind of car again. This car is absolute gold-award material and runs and drives flawless! we fully inspect the car and it's highly correct and detailed and technical and mechanical in very sound as new condition! We truly feel this is one of the best 71' Cuda's 440-6 in the world, IF not THE best. So if you are looking for a real high quality and correct car, this must be it !. It has all you could want in one of the hottest real 70's Muscle cars!
