Rare Barn Find !! 1971 Cuda 440-6 Barrel – 1 of 17 V-Code Convertibles Built

Video of a very rare 1971 PlymouthCuda Convertible powered by its original 440-6 Barrel engine (called 440-6 pack when installed in Dodge cars). This rare fish had been sitting in storage for approximately 35 years before it was recently uncovered. The letter “V” in the VIN of this ‘Cuda confirms it’s a real deal 440-6 Barrel which makes it a very rare car as only 17 V-code Cuda convertibles were built in 1971.

  1. Numbers matching 71 with a 426 just sold for three and a half million at Barrett-Jackson I’d be willing to bet if that one is numbers-matching it will sell for well over a mil

  2. New Insane trend… They are actually now worth more unmolested. A car is only original once. If you dump 30/40 large on frame off. Keep it. If you plan to sell why the heck dump all that cheese in it?????

  3. That car sitting like that. It isn’t worth more then 15,000. A friend of mine bought a one owner Plymouth roadrunner for 1,500. He said to me that car that has rust holes in it was worth 12,000 just the way it sat. He got it running . He is my mechanic.

    1. I know its a Cuda. And they were nice cars back in the day. But I ,my opinion wouldn’t give a million dollars for the way its sitting right now.

  4. Mid ’70s, I owned a stock ’70 ‘Cuda 440-6 barrel vitamin C orange automatic. Sold in ’78 for $1,800. Damn the bad luck!

  5. I think 200-250k, numbers matching with documentation of course. Auction value after full body restoration 500-800k

I use that also, but my friend told me about this and for some reason it fills in quite a few of the pits

Try it with tin foil and coca cola. Use diet Coke so you don't get all sticky and attract ants. Rinse the coke off and rub it with a good wax.

I have used , SOS Pads 👍

Works good on wheels

That's when they built cars. Not a bunch of plastic. Today's cars, one touch of the "bumper" and you end up painting the entire car to match. Very nice Olds. A real car.
