Title: Lets see your 1972 V21 `Cudas
Post by: UCUDANT on September 14, 2013 - 11:13:24 am
Here's mine. Rallye red, 340 4spd car with the factory G36 body colored racing mirrors option... which on this car meant the color keyed grille as well.

Thanks, I've been reading Mopar magazines since the 80's and I've never seen one of these type optioned cars covered. I've only seen one at a National show, and have found one other locally. This one is also a G36 coded car and should have come with body color grille.

Here's my first cuda.
It did not have it's tag.
Owner had it since the 70's in Pennsylvania.
Said it came like this.  Petty blue code with the black out hood.  So said the previous owner.
No proof though.  Not original paint on the car several resprays.

Here is one I got off of ebay.
Looks like the mirrors are painted black. Which would be wrong.  right?

Is the V21 the blacked out hood treatment?  If so, it looks very cool!  8)

I think there is another red 'Cuda on this site, yes?  :clueless:
Title: Re: Lets see your 1972 V21 `Cudas
Post by: 'Cuda Hunter on October 04, 2013 - 11:51:13 am
black out hood and color keyed  grill.

I think the tail panel gets blacked out also.

There should be another option that goes with it also.  Can't remember what it is.

This picture has a white out instead of a black out.
Must not be original.  I really like the white out look v21.

Been looking for one with a tag since I had my first cuda.
My first one was the blue one.
Not to be bias, but I really think the petty blue with the v21 is by far the best looking color with the option.
I really like the black against that color blue.  Very striking!

Over 30 years ago I bought a book: Consumers Guide; The Complete Book of PONY CARS....

In that book there is a colour picture of the TB3 blue factory promo car shown in some of the above pictures.....

Since that day on....I've wanted a blue one as well  :drool:

My very first Cuda came around the same time as that book...It was a 72 Barracuda.....I painted it Hemi Orange, but my friends talked me out of doing the V21 hood treatment, nobody but me liked it at the time...

I still have the book (looking at it right now)...and the dream...

Post by: 'Cuda Hunter on October 04, 2013 - 04:22:24 pm
I'm surprised that you have not found one over 30 years.

Going back to your roots huh?  No 70 or 71's.

How long has it been since you sold your V21?
Title: Re: Lets see your 1972 V21 `Cudas
Post by: anlauto on October 04, 2013 - 05:36:23 pm
Mine wasn't an original V21 car, I just wanted to add that paint scheme, 'cause I thought it was cool....

After having a slew of other Cudas, 71's etc....never really went back to the 72-74's...I will one day.

All of my "restored" Cudas are on this page in order starting on the bottom http://www.alangallantautomotiverestoration.com/PAST-RESTORATIONS.html (http://www.alangallantautomotiverestoration.com/PAST-RESTORATIONS.html)  I had about another 15 or so that weren't "restored"....

What a great option...I love the color keyed grill, all the colors really make it pop.

I can see adding this to my car, if I ever repaint it.

  The linked post photos all appear to be ones I have filed away from the net and added to that post ;D

Cuda Hunter the Yellow ebay car neither shows a V21 or G36 code. Tag appeared full we'd need to see the build sheet.  Notice there's no EN2 shown on the tag, and the V21 would have been right after the R11. (Edit I was missing the word "no" and the last code at top right as EN2 indicates end of codes assembly line 2)
The painted grille is not a V21 thing but was coupled with the G36 painted mirror option, if the car was a Cuda in certain specified colors.

According to the tag it was a G37 Chrome mirror car.

If I'm not mistaken it's missing a 2nd data tag note the attached hemi Cuda tags, I believe the last code indicates the next tag....

Post by: UCUDANT on October 05, 2013 - 05:17:37 am
This is what should be reflected on a V21 cars build sheet.

Interestingly enough the car that the example sheet I am using in this post is from showed an EN2 on the tag and no V21.

I've only seen a scan of the sheet from this car and would like to see the original build sheet. I lost track of this car, it's near identical to mine except it's TB3 and it's photo is in this thread already

Hey Cuda hunter... this car is actually a V21/G36 car so it had the colored keyed grille and mirrors from the factory. In person I can only recall seeing 2 of these besides mine... here is one of them and it's local

No I stopped the black paint higher up.  I don't believe his is correct. message me where you found the car please. I'd like to see if I can get tag and build sheet infor from it. Since he took liberties with the engine color, air cleaner and exhaust (built to his taste)  maybe he also added certain options?

Alan raises a good point, the grille is also incorrect   (http://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/scope.gif)   My car has all the same trim as the B3 vinyl top 340 4spd car I just haven't finished it/installed it yet

Post by: UCUDANT on October 09, 2013 - 04:35:39 am
The painted grille was only on Cuda models in certain colors (I posted the chart earlier in this thread), with the G36 mirrors  colors were EV2 Tor Red , EB3 Basin Street Blue,FE5 Rallye Red, GB5 True Blue metalic,FY1Lemon Twist, and GF7 Sherwood green however it appears that a Sherwood green Cuda would not have come with the body color mirrors...additionally a GY8 Gold leaf metallic car could have the mirrors but not the grille?

Wild guess is the 1972 340 Cuda is a 0-60mpg in like the 8 second range with a 1/4 mile about in the 16's... :dunno:

(http://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php/ubb/download/Number/207959/filename/Orange%20V21%202%20.JPG)

last time it didn't meet its reserve with just one $20K bid.....   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Plymouth-Barracuda-Cuda-/281814160146?forcerrptr=true&hash=item419d6ed312:g:wYUAAOSwyQtV3jbq&item=281814160146 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Plymouth-Barracuda-Cuda-/281814160146?forcerrptr=true&hash=item419d6ed312:g:wYUAAOSwyQtV3jbq&item=281814160146)

First time that I've seen 2 at once anywhere   8)  .It's actually Blaine Kelly's old Cyber Cuda, it was owed by Bob Malcom after that   http://www.bobmalcom.com/all%20pix/100_4626.jpg (http://www.bobmalcom.com/all%20pix/100_4626.jpg)

and Southern Motors just had it this year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDsOcPj8Fvk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDsOcPj8Fvk) 

It is actually coded for the G35 O/S Lh remote chrome mirror

Here's mine. Rallye red, 340 4spd car with the factory G36 body colored racing mirrors option... which on this car meant the color keyed grille as well.

What do you have for exhaust on your cuda? We are getting ours out of storage for the first time in about 10 years. Needs the exhaust replaced, some brake work and possibly new gas tank. Ours is a 1972 cuda hemi orange v21. Second owners.

What do you have for exhaust on your cuda? We are getting ours out of storage for the first time in about 10 years. Needs the exhaust replaced, some brake work and possibly new gas tank. Ours is a 1972 cuda hemi orange v21. Second owners.

I had 2-1/2 aluminized custom fabbed. I run LARGE W2 TTi Headers and an X pipe, O2's for my wide band and fuel injection.

....Oh and I waited to add the injection until after I upgraded he brakes. I also rebuilt he entire front end and detailed everything. I didnt blast any of th natural metal parts. I soaked them in evaporust. I powdercoated and then used Eastwood's exo armor on ALL the natural cast parts.  This is real old news, but it's new to you

probably a single standard chrome mirror?  The racing mirrors were an option

On ebay now, appears to be a V21 and a G36. The G36 seems a bit misplaced on the tag no?

Post by: 'Cuda Hunter on September 01, 2018 - 03:57:56 pm
It's between G15 and J54.   Looks to be in the right place to me.

I like the car.  What a different color!   Gold leaf Metallic. 

Never been a fan of gold as i've had so many gold pontiacs.  But I would totally rock that.

I missed the auction  Have been hunting big horn sheep the past two months with no internet access.  No hot meals.  No time for anything other than sheep. 
What was the outcome of the auction?  Did you save a link?

Post by: UCUDANT on September 03, 2018 - 10:23:33 am
If you click on an ebay link after an auction closes now it redirects you to a new auction. I had it saved in my watched items and it appears to have been at the 16K opening bid, with zero bids.

Post by: 'Cuda Hunter on September 03, 2018 - 05:33:04 pm
Not surprising. 
After all a paint scheme really doesn't help the value much on the 2-4's. 
Most people are gonna change the color anyway.

I really like that color combo.  Looks really slick.

Price is high.  I'm sure it cost more than that to restore but it's hard to get 50K for a 2-4. 

Beautiful car.  Really like that option.  Isn't the tach for a 2-4  a 7K tach?  8 K is for the 70-71.

Cool car for sure!
