Muscle Car Of The Day: 1971 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda With Only 2k Miles

By  | 


By Dave Ashton

A 1971 Plymouth Cuda with a Hemi engineis one of the most collectable of the muscle cars and fetches the highest prices. This is especially evident with this example currently on sale at RK Motors for an eye watering $1,299,900.

This example, claims its asking price as it is a completely original time capsule with a 426cu./425hp Hemi V8 with a two four-barrel carb. and a A727 three-speed Torqueflite automatic transmission, Dana 60 axle, Sure Grip differential and factory 4.10 gears. It comes in Rallye Red, fully documented and is apparently the highest optioned Hemi Cuda known to exist.

Amazingly, the engine is said to still have its factory fluids, with completely untouched parts head to toe. The list and specifications goes on and on, but suffice to say that everything on this Cuda is said to be original, as if it rolled out of the factory.

So the real question is, if this classic muscle car is worth the asking price of $1,299,900.
