    hey guys

    Came across a very nice 1970 Cuda convertible, but a bit unsure of what trim level etc and value

    Original 340/727 tranny
    Lemon twist with black interior (buckets and console)

    Looks to be very good condition from first looks at it.

    I know 70/71 are more desirable than later years and convertibles are far and few between so I’m pretty interested in it.

    Body and interior would give 8/10
    Drivetrain is in good running order

    What are these commanding these days as fair market value? eBay tends to be overpriced when I look cars up.

    Any info appreciated

    How about the fender tag of VIN? that will help us accurately give opinions.

    I have seen this car before, a while ago it was being sold I can't remember where I seen it or the asking price but I do remember it being a fair enough price to get my attention.

    In January of this year; it looks like the same Cuda 340 vert you are considering was previously
    on the block at Mecum (no pic)
    1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible | S70.1 | Kissimmee 2019 | Mecum Auctions

    Another 70 340 vert went over the top on price at $137.5K IMO
    1970 Plymouth Cuda Convertible | F170 | Indy 2019 | Mecum Auctions

    and finally, I went back to 2016
    on Mecum; Another cuda 340 vert sold at $30K
    1970 Plymouth Barracuda Convertible | S91 | Kansas City Spring 2016 | Mecum Auctions

    It looks like not many 340 cuda verts came up at this specific
    auction house over the last 3 years.

    Keep in mind that most sales of our cars tend to be private sales and generally sell at lower then auction prices, so there is hope for a reasonable priced cuda vert. They are rare and the market seems hot for early e body cudas these days.

    I looked at this car in NC about 4 years ago or so.
    The car needed a trunk floor and lower quarters and paint.
    Needed a lot of little details.

    I tried to put a deal together with my U code RT Challenger, but we didn't get it done.

    Looks like it was painted and cleaned up some with a few visible short cuts.

    You would really want to go over it close and see how the body work was done.

    That being said I did and still do like the car a lot
    Has a good look to it.
