The Hemi 'Cuda may very well sit at the top of the muscle car food chain and this stunning 1971 Plymouth 'Cuda HEMI Restomod delivers in every way that matters: loads of power from a 528 cubic inch HEMI V8, a 4-speed manual gearbox, sinister black paint, and an updated luxury interior. Quite honestly, they just don't come much nicer than this, and with only 10 miles on the entire build it's the very definition of BRAND-NEW.
Gorgeous Code TX9 Formal Black is in fact this car's original color, which is a heck of a find in-and-of itself, and few finishes look better on the venerable E-body and when it's executed to this high level, exactly nobody is going to complain. The paint is basecoat/clearcoat and it looks like gallons after gallons were dumped onto this Mopar, leaving a deep luster that's a little difficult to capture in photos, although it's pretty easy to see the reflection of our showroom in this car's flanks. Experts will note that '71 nose is one of Mopar's best designs ever, frequently swapped-in during the construction of later 'Cuda and Challenger restorations, and when coupled with that iconic front grille, blacked-out bumpers, and LED headlights, the front end of this car is downright scary. The sheetmetal is laser straight and you can see how good the panel alignment is in the photos, and with all that real estate on the quarters, you know it had to be right. The double-scoop hood looks cool and the color-matched vinyl roof up top should have been standard equipment, because 'Cudas look naked without them. Chrome fender 'gills', fog lamps, and blacked-out bumpers fore and aft were all installed to complement the slick, and the result is so tough Batman would drive this car. This is just an awesome-looking car in every way.
At first glance, the interior might look mostly stock, but once you're behind the wheel you'll realize that those modern bucket seats are wrapped in high-end materials with suede insert off-sets, and the aftermarket steering wheel atop a tilt column got its own set of hides as well, along with a Mopar horn ring in the center. New carpets, fresh door panels with 'Cuda badges, and a pistol-grip shifter inside the custom tailored center console all give the car a killer look that's close enough to stock that even the snobbiest of enthusiasts can feel comfortable inside. The carbon fiber gauge bezel ahead of the driver is full of digital/analog AutoMeter units, the digital control panel for Sniper EFI system is just to the right of the steering wheel, and the rest of the dash features a freshly upholstered up top and a carbon fiber inlays below. A Kenwood multi-media stereo system that includes the back-up camera feed lives inside the custom console, and it powers a competition level sound system with speakers and subwoofers throughout the cabin and trunk. There's also A/C, which uses the factory vents for a clean look, a taut headliner above, and the plush carpets below are protected with 'Cud floor mats. The beautifully finished trunk is quite clean and tidy with a custom enclosure for the subwoofers still leaving plenty of room for your gear.
The engine is a snarling 528 cubic inch HEMI V8 with nothing more than a few break-in miles under its belt, and if you've been longing for a 'Cuda that can accelerate like a rocket, this one fits the bill. With a long list of modifications, it delivers the neck-snapping performance for which the Hemi was justifiably famous... and then some! The engine was built for combat and features a Holley Sniper EFI system up top, a billet serpentine belt system, a lumpy cam inside, and a long list of upgrades that add up to huge horsepower and torque production. Yeah, it's nasty. With the curb weight of a small block it handles exceptionally well and it cackles and snarls thanks to ceramic-coated long-tube headers and a custom H-pipe dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers. And while you're looking around under there, check out the floors, which are as beautifully finished as the bodywork, along with the 100% upgraded suspension with performance components everywhere you look. Wilwood power 4-wheel disc brakes stop the car on a dime, power steering flicks the car in and out of corners with ease, and adjustable coilovers at each corner help set the killer stance. The 4-speed transmission makes the 528 easy to live with and powers a heavy-duty rear end that handles all that added power with ease. Gorgeous staggered Foose wheels have a slick modern look but don't take away from the vintage feel of this restomod, and they carry 245/40/18 front and 305/35/20 rear Mickey Thompson performance radials.
This is an extremely impressive car in every possible way and it's basically on been driven in and out of trailers. This is a no-compromises 'Cuda that's ready to drive and enjoy today, and will be dropping jaws for years to come. Call now!
