1971 Plymouth `Cuda 383 A/C Project Car For Sale
« on: July 07, 2017 - 12:07:37 pm »
1971 True `Cuda BS23N1B Car.
Galen Govier Report states 1 of 1739 383-4BBL 'Cudas hard tops, 1 of 1168 Automatics.
I have owned this car 9 years almost and have been collecting parts for it all along.
Needs to be put together, it is a PROJECT car.
I have the original dash with the VIN, as well as a fender tag, and a title... Galen Govier report as well.

It is located in Bedford, NH
It has been on a lift the past 4-5 years, it has been garaged the last 20.
I have bought all NEW sheet metal for it. (2 Rear full quarters, rear tail panel, trunk lid, rear valence with cutouts, Shaker Hood, Door skins, outer wheel houses, trunk gutters, gilled fenders w/ new inserts, deck filler, rear spoiler, reproduction hood hinges, found a set of doors that are nice, frame rails, entire roof, upper/lower cowl, b pillars, gas tank, oil pan and pickup, front spoiler, hood pin support/hood pin kit)...  the list goes on and on.  I bought every part and piece I could get my hands on for a while.
There is a full interior for it, hemi driveshaft, new parts all in boxes.

I have put a Dana 60 3.54 gears w/posi (+ disk brakes) under it with hotchkiss rear 1" springs.
I found original glass for it front/rear
I found original 15x7 rallye wheels with new BFG T/A rubber on it, new center caps and rings.
I have 2 front grilles for it, 2 engines for it (original with pop up pistons and a 1970 HP 383 block), 727 transmission, carburetor.

I bought it from a guy that started the restoration on it... I have not done any sheetmetal work to it.

To be honest, you will need a big box truck and trailer to remove all the parts/pieces I have for this.
It probably will take 1/2 a day to get it all down from the loft and load it all up.
There is just a LOT of parts and pieces here.

I have $28,500 into it so far and I just can't see myself finishing this anytime soon.
I am looking to get out of it for what I have into it... seeing what the market is on it these days.
It is a great project for someone that wants to take and do their own thing on a true 'Cuda... or restore it back to original.

I will get some more pictures, but for now, this is before it went up on the lift.

Contact me at   c b r o w n AT c e r t i f i a b l e j e e p DOT com if you are interested or want to tell me that I am crazy.
I am in no hurry to sell it, and I don't need help selling it.
No trades at this time, just looking for the CASH.

Thanks,
Craig

The CL ad has been updated with new pictures.
The 'Cuda is off the lift, the other doors are bolted on and open/close.
The fenders are on and the hood hinges are in place.
The hood is also down and ready to be bolted on.

I finally got all the parts and pieces photographed.
I have pictures of the original dash now (has VIN on it).
I have the pictures of the original grille as well as a new repop one.
All the parts have been moved and co-located together.

Price reduced to $25K.

looks like a ton of great parts with the car. 
Any chance you could post that fender tag a little larger?

Too bad it fell through. Looks like a good deal.
