    i have an opportunity to buy a real v code cuda. It has correct replacement block and has had the quarters replaced the rest of the car is original and it has been painted once. It is a bench seat with buddy seat( owner says that is rare) It is column shift automatic one of eight with bench seat. Not that up on Cudas was wondering what you think. The car is in above average not quite show quality

    Hagerty insurance has a collector car value checker. Really hard to determine exact value but it is a starting point.

    A picture or two would help. Is it complete & running and driving? Is it an original bill board car? Is the fender tag and/or broadcast sheet there? All are major factors. If the answer is yes to all of the above it's probably worth $75k minimum.

    Rare isn't always desireable. Some guys like bench seat column cars but it'd be way more desireable and valuable if it was a 4 speed.

    I had a fellow mopar friend who's mom had a v-code convertible four speed 71 Cuda back in the 1980 time frame, among other rare mopars. I had no idea how rare that car was then. I have his phone number, but haven't called to see if the car is still in the family, partly because I know that they know how much the car is worth and their is no way I could afford it. Rod

    Correct, the only way to know exactly how many of the 71 440-6 auto hardtops had column shift is to have info on all 129 of them. People always have Galan's info quoted incorrectly.

    Hagerty Values Listed for a 71 Cuda 440-6
    • #1 Concours $133,000
    • #2 Excellent $104,000
    • #3 Good$ $75,800
    • #4 Fair $49,800
    Value Adjustments
    For Hemi cpe: -$57,000 for auto trans. For Hemi conv: -$150,000 for auto trans. +10% for 4-spd. Colors can make an astonishing difference in both value and salability.
    Hope this helps!

    Replacement block and non original rear quarters are not desirable so they will devalue it a bit, Tor Red paint and build sheet are pluses I would say @ 90k.
