Barrett-Jackson to offer a pair of 1971 ‘Cudas at Las Vegas auction

The 1971 HEMI 'Cuda is one of 59 produced


A pair of 1971 Plymouth ‘Cudas are being offered individually at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction. The highly collectible Mopars are finished in Rally Red with black side decals, but each has its own distinct style and pedigree.

First on the Las Vegas auction docket is this ultra rare rotisserie-restored King Kong 1971 Plymouth HEMI ‘Cuda. It’s one of 59 produced and it’s powered by the original 426/425hp HEMI V8 engine. The HEMI V8 is paired with a four-speed manual transmission and a 4:10 Dana Super Track Pak. This well documented Mopar features the original Fender Tag and includes the Build Sheet.

Immediately following the HEMI Cuda on the docket is this restored matching-numbers 1971 Plymouth ‘Cuda convertible also finished in Rally Red. It’s powered by the original matching-numbers 383ci V8 big block engine paired with the original matching-numbers 4-speed manual transmission and a pistol grip shifter. This ‘Cuda’s history is documented with its Build Sheet and copies of the paperwork when the serviceman ordered it through Zurich, Switzerland.

“This Las Vegas Auction features quite possibly the greatest selection of Mopars we’ve ever offered at one auction,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO of Barrett-Jackson. “An absolutely stunning array of HEMIs and it doesn’t get any better than the 1971 HEMI ’Cuda. It was the last year they made these and its one of the rarest muscle cars in existence.”

Barrett-Jackson is offering these ‘Cudas and their entire docket with No Reserve at the 2022 Las Vegas Auction, held June 30 to July 2 in the West Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Barrett-Jackson’s Las Vegas docket is sold out for consignments, but registration to bid at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas auction is open. (Click the link to view registration details)
