A big block muscle car from a year with a distinct and singular design... If you’re a Mopar fan, we didn’t have to give you these reminders why the 1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda is so special. And if you already knew that, then you also know how much of an opportunity this is.
We love the 1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda. The unique quad headlights and louvers in the fenders were only available for this year, and it made for one of the sportiest muscle machines of the era. But the rarity goes well-beyond single-year design. Sales were down at Plymouth that year, and so it’s reported that less than 6,300 ‘Cuda hardtops were built. And now that it’s 45+ years later, how many do you think survived to look this complete? The True Blue paint is a correct ’71 color, and it’s the perfect shining complement to the matte black stripe package that simultaneously showcases the rear fender “kick-up” and brags about the big block under the hood. And while we’ll get to the details of the massive motor in a moment, people don’t have to see it or hear it to know you’ve got some serious muscle. After all, the dual scoop sport hood and hood pins already look like they are trying to keep the beast in its cage.
The moment you slip into the high-back bucket seat, you realize this ‘Cuda has all the right factory features you want. You get a comfortable center console, period-correct wood paneling, the original AM/FM radio, and there are even provisions for factory air conditioning. This is all designed to envelop the driver, because you’re the most important part of this Mopar. You’re going to love grabbing the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and beyond that is the Rallye gauge package with big round readouts for everything, including the speedo and tach.
When you peek under the hood, you’ll find an engine bay filled with big block Mopar power. This car was born with a 383 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, and so it’s great to still see that big displacement still there today. It looks great with the Super Commando air topper boldly standing out in this deep black heart. It inhales deeply through an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, which helps contributes to the wicked snarl of the dual exhaust. But while this is a beastly power package, it’s quite easy to tame. That’s thanks to the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich T/As mounted on the standout Rallye wheels.
Beautiful, distinct, and powerful – this is a rare opportunity at a rare Mopar. So don’t miss out, call today!
