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.

After another leap forward in time, voilà – we have a Cuda that’s not only restored but also returned to its factory-stock glory.
