Vehicle Description

There were 11 Hemi Cuda convertibles built in 1971.  Of these, two were manuals. Okay, so two people in the world can own an original ‘71 Hemi Cuda convertible with a stick shift. In 2002, A Hemi Cuda convertible was the first muscle car to fetch a million dollars at auction, and since then they have sold for as much as 5 million.  Even if you have the cash, unless Luca Brasi works for you, it might be hard to convince the owner to part with his prize. And then, would you want to drive it? Here’s the solution. It’s a fantastic 71 Hemi Cuda Convertible re-creation. It started life as a 1973 Barracuda, a desirable car in its own right, but then was given the Hemi Cuda makeover including the legendary 426 Elephant under the hood complete with the impressive dual four-barrel set up.  The car has had a comprehensive nut and bolt rotisserie restoration, and is thoroughly clean inside and out. But since originality is no longer paramount, it can include great upgrades like a Tremec 5-speed transmission with a Keisler transmission kit. The mechanicals on this build were well thought out. Here’s another example. Realistically, a classic convertible with this much power – and especially a stick – can be a twist-o-flex. So again the builders were at liberty to add subframe connectors — a good idea.   Other modern upgrades include Vintage Air air conditioning, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. The advantages of modern technology are also exploited in the new Infinity box multiplexer wiring with remote.  Aside from all the great mechanical and electronic technology in this build, there’s the iconic look.  Yellow paint with black Hemi billboards announce your arrival, accented with a black wing, fog lights and the iconic Shaker hood scoop.  This is a fine automobile for the person who will settle for nothing less than the ultimate. And it looks like a million.
