1971 Plymouth 'Cuda 340, 4spd, Factory Shaker and Billboards, Concours Restored!

Most everyone who wants a 'Cuda, wants one with a factory installed N96 Shakerhood. Most everyone who wants a '71 'Cuda, wants one with Billboard side graphics. Very, very few 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda's were actually ordered with the "Billboard" stripe. This 340 powered 4spd is factory equipped with both a factory Shakerhood AND Billboard stripe. It has also been finely, Concours restored and formally inspected by renown Mopar Judge and Marque expert, Dave Wise. The engine block is a vintage 340, but not original to the car. Correct distributor, alternator, exhaust manifold, and Carter Thermoquad carburetor #4973 dated 350 day of 1971. According to the inspection, the body VINs on the radiator support, cowl, and dash are all original and intact. Overall, Mr. Wise's report rates the car as a 1.4, 1.0 being the highest. The car is restored as factory equipped, confirmed by both the original fender tag and original broadcast sheet.

High resolution photos and a copy of the Wise Vehicle Inspection Report are available by request, 847-665-8448.

90%-96% of showroom condition. Exceptionally nice. May have slight wear on exterior and interior finishes but visible only under close inspection consistent with years of show detailing, climate controlled storage, enclosed transport, and indoor display. Most cars in this class are not driven more than a few miles per year.

Overall Originality

Restored Concours

Vehicle has usually been professionally restored to the current highest standard, using a combination of refurbished original parts, exact reproduction parts, and new old stock (NOS) parts. Attention to replicating factory fit, finishes, and marking details are paid attention to. Bare metal finishes may be mimicked with paints and coatings to prevent corrosion. Paint and body may exceed the quality produced by the factory.
