Yes the car is a creation not a recreation. In 1971 Plymouth discontinued the RT package on the convertible. The biggest motor you could get was a 383 So I decided to make one. I wanted to be like it would been if Plymouth would have made it no headers no modern mods except a Bluetooth stereo. I started with a very solid 318 challenger with 31,000+ miles with no rust. The first phase of the build was done by Brad at Mopar farms in Viborg SD. We replaced the entire drive drain with a period correct 426 hemi drive train. The engine is a rebuilt 1966 426 street Hemi. The carbereator setup is to edelbrock 4 bbl similar to the stock Hemi setup. I had the motor built to stock no big cam. I bought a rebuilt 727 torque flight that was taken out of a 1971 Hemi challenger. The rearend is is 489 suregrip case with 321 gears which are great for high with driving. A new exhaust was put on the car also at this time. New carpet was added. The car was bead blasted and painted plum crazy purple. The original color was rallye red. Im not a red guy. The convertible top is original and in great shape and is powered. The hood is a modified stock hood not an aftermarket the shaker is not original but the the badging is original.The second phase of the project had the door jambs cleaned up and repainted And added RT stripes. I also added a refurbished stock rack gauge package and dash cover. The car was a originally a air car but everyone knows you don’t put air on a Hemi car. I also cleaned up some of the interior trim. Third phase I added a date correct Hemi radiator. When I added the new dash I did not hook up the heater or fan just don’t use it in Texas. The final phase would be changing the front brakes from drum to disc I have a complete brake setup out of a 1971 challenger. The master cylinder and booster have not been purchased yet as you know it takes a special one to clear the valve covers. The car is in excellent condition near been in rain since I’ve owned it. Have won multiple shows with it and won best in class at the mopar mini nationals in Dallas. The car is located in Allen Texas and would would be responsible for shipping. The car is sold as is no warranty. I will only sell car to someone who does his own inspection or hires someone to check over car. Oh by the way the second and third phases were completed by Ironhorse Classics in Wylie TX. Im asking $105,000 for the car you could not build this car for that price. Thx for you consideration. I do not have a lift so I don’t have any underneath pictures. Dont ask I don’t have the number of the motor either.

Nice looking car. In 1971, Plymouth was the only way to get a Hemi in a convertible in the 71 Cuda. Dodge only offered the 383 as the only big block option in 1971 in a non-R/T convertible which, as you stated, could not be had in the R/T package. Good luck with the sale.
