The Mecum Kissimmee, which began this past weekend, is shaping up to be quite a spectacle with beautiful vehicles crossing the block every day, and this coming weekend will be no different. The beautiful ’71 Hemi ‘Cuda pictured here will be up for grabs this coming Saturday at 2:50 p.m.
The ‘Cuda is one of 107 built with a 426 powerplant (producing 425 horses) and a hardtop. The Hemi option bumped the price of the ‘Cuda coupe by $884, and brought with it a functional Shaker hood scoop, heavy-duty suspension and brakes, and a special transmission as well as the Dana 60 rear end. The California car is completely unrestored and features a matching numbers engine, transmission, and Dana 4.10 rear end Super Track Pack, and to make it even more rare, the car is one of only 59 built with a 4-speed manual transmission.
Hold-down pins, a rubber bumper, fog lights, chrome rocker moldings, bright fender vent trim, a color-keyed grille, and factory Flat Black “Hemi” billboards adorn the car’s exterior, while a black interior is equipped with leather high-back leather bucket seats, a three-spoke Rimblow steering wheel, center console with Hurst Pistol Grip shifter, a full Rallye instrument cluster (including a 150mph speedometer and 8,000rpm tachometer), pushbutton radio, and power windows. Power steering and front disc brakes make the ‘Cuda much more fun to drive – though it has only seen 33,000 miles of blacktop, and color-matching steel wheels with dog-dish caps wrapped in fifteen-inch Goodyear Polyglas tires mean the buyer will be cruising in style.
The ’71 Hemi ‘Cuda comes with two colored factory broadcast sheets, two fender tags, and Chrysler registry Galen Govier documentation.
