This is a real 1971 cuda 340 4 speed. The original color is black with white interior, which will be an incredible combination when finished.
The car has an original 93k miles and came from Arizona and is now in California at our shop. This is an extremely rare and very cool optioned car. The motor and transmission are numbers matching and appear to never have been out of the car.
The car was a special order car with factory A/C, power disk brakes and power steering. It also came with an am/fm stereo and ultra rare dictaphone recorder with console. The car has been sitting for more than 20 years and just recently got up and running. Yes, it is a running and driving car that is registered for the street.
There are some rust areas as seen in the pictures. This is centered around the back window area due to someone installing a very poor makeshift vinyl top. The floor behind the driver seat has a rust hole because someone left some wet rags sitting for a long time. It is painful to see these things happen. The remaining pans and frames are in great condition. The passenger side rear quarter panel has been changed many years ago with NOS parts with the number still on it. The remaining panels are original.
Back in the day, the rear wheel lips were rolled up for fat tires. The car drives down the road good but we would not consider it a daily driver. With some minor upgrades and some good ol’ TLC it can be a good driver. The grill is a new aftermarket set up. All of the lights and gauges are in working order and the glass is In good original condition. The body was recently stripped and put into primmer because it was so ugly.
The car will still need to be properly aligned and gapped when the metal work is completed. It does come with a new rear Dutchman’s panel to fix rust.
This is a super rare find with correct numbers and paper work including original fender tag and build sheet. We are certain it is a one off car and we have never seen anything like it. Black is the ultimate color for a Cuda and to get a 4-speed with A/C required a special order from Chrysler.
