1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible – 7 Made
Two of the biggest Chrysler legends from the classic days of muscle car culture are the Barracuda and the 426 Hemi engine. All through the 1960s, those icons of the industry didn’t mix, at least not in street-legal cars. In 1970, Plymouth offered this legendary engine in the Barracuda body style. It immediately made for one of the most desirable muscle cars ever (via Hemmings).
The mighty Hemi engine was an expensive top-of-the-line option for the 1970 and 1971 Barracuda lineup. It was available in a coupe or convertible form. This option cost around $900 over the price of the standard Barracuda. It was installed in just about 600 coupes and only 17 convertibles during a two-year production period. However, in 1971, only seven Cuda Convertibles got the Hemi treatment. This made them incredibly rare and sought-after cars.
