Correct Chrysler muscle cars have fetched big money for years. There’s just something about brash, big block MoPars that makes them universally appealing and highly collectable. Thanks to their excellent combination of power, style and exclusivity, offerings like this awesome ‘Cuda have some of the fastest sell-through rates of anything in our showroom. In fact, with its storied Hemi, tough A833 4-speed and wicked color combination, this is the kind of metal that’ll sell almost as fast as it’s posted. If you’re looking for a spectacular classic that you can show, enjoy and build a little equity with, it’s time to seize the day!

Spending most of its life as a clean daily driver, this awesome MoPar was the perfect starting point for a high quality, ground-up restoration. The car’s arrow-straight body, which includes solid-closing doors on top of better-than-factory alignment, was stripped to bare metal and massaged into spectacular surfaces. Once those surfaces were completely clean and fully prepped, a flashy coat of Lemon Twist base was detailed with bright white billboards and sealed in glossy clear. And today, this positively vivid Plymouth sits as one super slick road warrior that features a perfect combination of no-nonsense looks and vicious street manners.

Thanks to a 1970 redesign, the ‘Cuda lost all commonality with its Valiant stablemate and finally traded its lowly economy car lineage for the square-jawed muscle car image we all know and love. At the front of this sinister stoplight brawler, a stainless-trimmed, ‘71-exclusive grille hangs crystal clear headlights above an elastomeric bumper and familiar, sculpted parking lamps. At the top of that grille, a “hemicuda” branded shaker rides in front of like-new glass, straight stainless trim and Lemon Twist mirrors. At the sides of that shaker, satin door handles, stylish fender vents and a trademark Chrysler pentastar highlight a smooth, professionally finished profile. And at the back of the car, a traditional black valence hangs like-new tail lights and a cool “’cuda by PLYMOUTH” emblem above a bright chrome bumper and correct exhaust tips.

Toss the car’s light hood and you’ll find a 426 cubic inch Hemi V8. As Plymouth’s top option for power hungry gearheads, Chrysler’s legendary elephant block utilizes cast iron heads, an oversquare bore, a forged steel crank, forged steel rods, forged aluminum pistons and a hydraulic cam to twist stout 10.25 to 1 compression into a stated 425 horsepower and 490 lb./ft. of torque. All that high performance hardware spins in a traditional Hemi Orange block that hangs attractive, Organisol-coated valve covers over correct, low-restriction exhaust manifolds. A perfect mixture of fuel and air is supplied by coated Edelbrock carburetors and a correct aluminum intake. Compression is sparked by MoPar Performance Premium Magnetic Suppression cables, which are snapped onto a correct points distributor. And resultant combustion is cooled by a big radiator that’s fitted with pliable hoses and modern screw clamps. Aesthetically, the entire engine bay looks great, from its gray latch and Lemon Twist fenders to its old school fluid reservoir and MoPar battery topper. And functionally, a quick turn of the car’s ignition results in a rumbling, high-performance idle, hot or cold.

Park this ‘Cuda on a lift and you’ll find a solid chassis that’s no stranger to sunny miles and good times. At the center of the car’s floors, a tough A833 4-speed applies power to a rugged Dana 60 rear end that spins a posi-traction differential around friendly 3.54 gears. Below that proven drivetrain, a familiar torsion bar/leaf spring suspension has been completely rebuilt to include factory power steering and manual disc and drum brakes. Exhaust is handled by 2.5-inch, free-flowing tail pipes that jettison cooked dinosaurs through Pypes Street Pro mufflers and square stainless tips. Power flows to the pavement via Chrysler Rallye wheels, which spin authentic looking F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GTs around stainless trim rings and Graphite center caps. And naturally, the car’s clean, body-matched undercarriage is rounded out by fresh stainless fluid lines and a new stainless fuel tank.

Pop this Plymouth’s clean top and you’ll find an elegant interior that plays well off the car’s bright paint. The front bucket and rear bench seats are wrapped in virtually new covers. Below those seats, stain-free carpet centers heavy duty, “’cuda” branded floor mats on a sculpted console and Hurst pistol grip shifter. At the sides of that carpet, White door panels hang small “’cuda” emblems above traditional cranks, integrated handles and small chrome locks. In front of those panels, a “Barracuda” branded dash props requisite Chrysler Rallye gauges above a Chrysler Solid State radio. In front of the driver, a wood-rimmed steering wheel spins aluminum spokes around a cool Barracuda horn button. And behind the passengers, a nicely finished trunk centers a correct jack and new space saver spare between a correct mat and new decklid decal.

Hemi-powered MoPars are an excellent place to park your cash, and they haven’t become any less amazing to own. With incredible paint, an era-correct powertrain and the ability to make the most of summer drives, this ‘Cuda is the car that completes your collection. If you’re looking for an old school Plymouth to cruise, cherish and enjoy, you’re search is officially over!
