1971 Plymouth Barracuda Cuda convertible

1971 Plymouth Cuda Convertible Original 383 4spd numbers matching car

One of 33 Cuda convertibles produced with the rare 4spd manual transmission.

This is a one owner car that would have stayed that way if the owner had not unfortunately passed away.

This is a rare opportunity to own a real no excuses 71 Cuda convertible with a Big Block engine and a 4spd trans with pistol Grip shifter. Yes, 2 others were produced but I can not count 5 that still exist with their original drivetrains and a buildsheet.

This car not only has its complete original numbers matching body and drivetrain, t came from the factory optioned just as you see it here. There are zero added options to this car because the original owner ordered it exactly the way he wanted it in the first place. Some of these options include:

FE5 Bright Red/Black Leather buckets, lack Billboard Stripes, ainted grill and racing mirrors, oad lamps, ally Dash, im Blow.........

Documentation includes:

Original Fender Tag


Original Window Sticker

Application for original title

Original purchase agreement

Oil change records

Owners Manual in original pouch with all factory inserts

Braking distance sheet

Maintenance Receipts

Condition: This is an original car that has not ever been completely disassembled and restored. It still has its character and patina. This is the condition that I like to find a car in. It is impossible to know what a fully restored car was like before the resto. A full resto wipes away the history of the car. A car like this shows that it was a loved car and has never been abused and stripped out or worse. The original owner cleaned the car up by having it repainted the factory color and detailing the engine compartment. The quality of the detailing is not national show level but very respectable. The paint on the body is what I would describe as good for local shows and above driver condition but not national show quality. All the sheet metal is original except for partial rear quarters. The fenders do not appear to have ever been removed. The original trunk floor is super cleanand original with no rust repair ever needed. The original Leather interior has no split seams and looks fantastic. Look at the pics of the seat springs and be amazed.The original Dash pad has no cracks and looks amazing. New carpet. All the glass and top are in excellent condition. The bottom of the car was undercoated at the factory and shows no signs of rust anywhere. Look at the pics of the interior bare floor with beautiful original paint.
