Lookin to hook a big Mopar fish? We have the proper bait to lure you here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars, a 1971 Sassy Grass Green Plymouth Barracuda Hemi Tribute. This car is a stunning tribute to extreme correct standards to what could be had if you walked into a Plymouth dealership in 1971 and ordered nearly the full Ebody Barracuda performance menu. This awesome Cuda is to be featured in a future episode of Gas Monkey's Fast N Loud this current season.
It started life as a 1971 Barracuda twodoor hardtop with a 383 CID V8 engine and a fourspeed manual transmission made in Chryslers Hamtramck, Michigan factory in September 1970. It was delivered to Grand Spaulding Auto Sales in Chicago, Illinois.
Highland Automotive in Highland, New York performed a frameoff nutandbolt restoration on this example in 2004. Refinished in periodspecific Sassy Grass Green (code FJ6), with black billboard graphics (code V6X), the cars paint and trim are in excellent condition and exactly what you would expect from a full professional nut and bolt restoration. Its glass panels are clear and intact and its lights are clear and hazefree, including the fog, or road lights.
This Cuda rolls on Goodyear Polyglas GT tires, F6015, at all four corners, surrounding factory alloy wheels with caps and beauty rings. The cars bodywork is solid and straight, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the bumpers fit well to the body; the battery is in good order, as is the trunk.
Inaide, the black interior is in excellent order overall. The highback front leather bucket seats and rear bench, carpet, headliner, instrument panel with woodgrain appliqus with full instrumentation, threespoke, rimblow wood rimmed steering wheel, inner door panels, center console and pistol grip shift lever all look fantastic. Along with the very good mirror glass, completing the interior is a factory AM/FM stereo.
A 426 CID Hemi V8 engine with dual fourbarrel carburetors making 425 horsepower and was a brand new motor from Mopar performance in 2004 which would cost you around $40k today in the engine alone The Hemi is backed by a fourspeed manual transmission (code D21) and a heavyduty Dana 60 Sure Grip differential (code D91) with a 9.75inch ring gear. Driver convenience features include power brakes with front discs and PLENTY of horsepower
The Barracuda was changed slightly for 1971, with a new grille and taillights, seat, and trim differences. This would be the only year that the Barracuda would have fourheadlights(which the Challenger had for all five years of their concurrent run), and also the only year of the fender gills on the Cuda model.
The 1971 Barracuda engine options would remain the same as that of the 1970 model, except that the 340 SixBarrel was gone, and the fourbarrel carbureted 440 V8 engine was no longer on the option list but could be had via a special order and perhaps a dozen cars were built with it installed; otherwise the 440powered Barracudas had a sixbarrel carburetor setup instead.
In 1970 and 1971 only, theshaker hood, elastomeric (rubber) colored bumpers, and the SpicerbuiltDana 60rear axle were available. The elastomeric (rubber) colored bumpers were available as a frontonly option, code A21, or as a front and rear combination, option code A22. The heavyduty (and heavy) Dana 60, with a 9.75inch ring gear, was standard equipment withmanual transmissionsand 440 sixbarrel and 426 Hemi engines and was optional on those with theautomatic transmission.
Documentation includes original owners manual, original fullline 1971 Plymouth brochure, a binder of photos chronicling the cars frameoff, nut and bolt restoration and miscellaneous documents.
