This rare 1971 Plymouth Cuda Convertible was initially built for the racetrack, destined for the hands of Super Stock racer Dave Wren. In 1971, Plymouth only produced 374 Cuda convertibles, and among those, only three Convertible V-code Mopars came equipped with a four-speed and shaker hood. So you know this Cuda isn’t just any old muscle car.
Fast forward to 1987, when Mopar collector Tom Lembeck acquired it with just 11 miles on the odometer and embarked on a full restoration. After another leap forward in time, voilà – we have a Cuda that’s not only restored but also returned to its factory-stock glory.
Now, if you’re curious about the engine, this baby purrs with a date-correct replacement drivetrain. 1971 was the last year when the Cuda was built with the mighty 440-6 engine, so you know this car is a rare gem in the Mopar world.
