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 E-body 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 two-door hardtop with a 383 CID V-8 engine and a four-speed manual transmission made in Chrysler’s 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 frame-off nut-and-bolt restoration on this example in 2004. Re-finished in period-specific Sassy Grass Green (code FJ6), with black billboard graphics (code V6X), the car’s 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 haze-free, including the fog, or road lights.

This ‘Cuda rolls on Goodyear Polyglas GT tires, F60-15, at all four corners, surrounding factory alloy wheels with caps and beauty rings. The car’s 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 high-back front leather bucket seats and rear bench, carpet, headliner, instrument panel with woodgrain appliqués with full instrumentation, three-spoke, rim-blow 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 V-8 engine with dual four-barrel 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 four-speed manual transmission (code D21) and a heavy-duty Dana 60 Sure Grip differential (code D91) with a 9.75-inch 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 four headlights (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 Six-Barrel was gone, and the four-barrel carbureted 440 V-8 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 440-powered Barracudas had a six-barrel carburetor setup instead.

In 1970 and 1971 only, the shaker hood, elastomeric (rubber) colored bumpers, and the Spicer-built Dana 60 rear axle were available. The elastomeric (rubber) colored bumpers were available as a front-only option, code A21, or as a front and rear combination, option code A22. The heavy-duty (and heavy) Dana 60, with a 9.75-inch ring gear, was standard equipment with manual transmissions and 440 six-barrel and 426 Hemi engines and was optional on those with the automatic transmission.

Documentation includes original owner’s manual, original full-line 1971 Plymouth brochure, a binder of photos chronicling the car’s frame-off, nut and bolt restoration and miscellaneous documents.

Competition to this Plymouth in 1971 included Chevrolet’s Camaro, Dodge’s Challenger, Ford’s Mustang, Mercury’s Cougar and Pontiac’s Firebird.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 4 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
