Multi-carbureted Mopar convertibles were expensive back in the day, one of the reasons they are few and far between now. This beautiful example is not only one of the just 17 440 6-BBL Cuda convertibles that came off the assembly line in 1971, but it is also the only V-Code convertible Mopar ever produced in the premium GY3 Curious Yellow Hi Impact Paint (HIP). Beyond that, this car was also born with options like the factory front and rear elastomeric bumpers. Documented on the original broadcast sheet and featuring original body panels, the Cuda is a result of a ground-up restoration completed on a vehicle with 12,800 original miles. The original fender tag and door VIN decal remain on this car as well. Under the hood is the legendary Plymouth 440 CI engine, a 385 HP package topped with a trio of 2-barrel Holley carburetors that was considered a terrific overall performance engine with mild highway manners but eye-searing acceleration. This V-Code 440 features dual exhaust with resonators and chrome tips exiting via the rear valance. The TorqueFlite automatic transmission is backed with the 8.75 differential housing, and the car also has power steering and power brakes with front discs. Most stunning of the car’s appearance is the contrasting black convertible top, billboards and interior, giving standout cues to the paint, which was recently refreshed by Dale Keihne. Inside are front bucket seats, a console, Slap Stik shifter and pedal dress-ups. The exterior features painted mirrors, rocker moldings, painted mirrors and the addition of the OEM-design Shaker hood and rear pedestal spoiler options. Of course, those 1971-only standard model styling cues still make this final-year convertible almost universally recognizable, complemented by Rallye wheels and Goodyear Polyglas GT F60-15 tires. With an ownership title history, this one-of-one 440 6-BBL Plymouth Cuda convertible speaks for itself visually in terms of desirable options, driveline and color, and it retains more added significance as a premium opportunity to own a very special blue-chip American supercar.
