1971 Plymouth Cuda 440: Regular Car Reviews

We drive the over-hyped, romanticized Plymouth Cuda. It's not a Barracuda. It's a 'Cuda and the muscle car bubble has burst long ago.

  • I get that somebody can be too young to understand what high octane was for a muscle car in the late 60s very early 70s. But for God's sake everybody has come to know something called water injection. There was a time when my parents continue to hold on to their 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado which I think is practically the same octane requirement as this, maybe a bit less maybe as low as 96. Install a water injection system stop the problem right there. Preventive maintenance against carbon build-up too.

  • yeah, young people shouldn't drive these. they can't comprehend their existence and make comments based on sheer ignorance. shame on this family for not keeping this car in better shape. I'd be hard pressed to give $10K for this example. the engine setup is poor. i had a 74 barracuda back in the day with a 318. it was a hoot to drive. i got a 2019 challenger a couple years back and it was better in every measurable, but i only kept it a year. it was out of my time, i'm 55, and it was just too slick. made for today's drivers who need everything sanitized. lots of power but also alot of electronic controls.

  • You don't need more than 10:1 compression to make power. Get rid of the purple cam, run a milder one and it would run on 91-93 octane. It would probably run just as hard, if not harder.

  • So it says this is a "clone". What's that mean? These are all the questions one must ask if ever throwing themselves into the shark tank that is today's market for these cars. And no I don't think the bug truly devalued them, it just shaved off some (but not all) of the excess of the prices these are asking for. I still see them listed for funny money on eBay. This is the most overhyped, overvalued, overpriced classic car in existence. CHANGE MY MIND

  • “The cost of making a ‘60s or ‘70s car act like a modern car...” is the car’s soul. You can do that (with a lot of money), but you’ll erase what the car was to begin with: a wild, untamable beast. RCR was saying that throughout the entire video, reiterating it at every turn. Well done!

    • @Super Adventure I agree, I think quite a few people get into the muscle car market with the same intent some get into the house-flipping market: dress it up, make it look and sound cool, leave the actual problems alone, and profit.

    • Well, that guy did TRY to do that by modding the engine. Great, good on him- except for every one time it's done right (maybe- the knocking/compression issue is actually a problem- and too much HP can wreck the trans) there's 12 more idiots who do it wrong. Oh but they don't put them on eBay or B.A.T or Facebook marketplace telling the truth- hellno. They demand 80K then walk away laughing while some daddywarbucks who knows nothing about cars ends up with a broken thing he can't fix. Then tries to flip it 2 months later. Most of these are a big scam.

  • Thanks for reminding me how easy it was to flood a MOPAR car of that time. I used to remove the air filter in the winter, just to make it easier to stick a screwdriver or wooden chopstick in to hold open the choke. The automatic choke was thermostatically controlled, so it only opened once the choke mechanism physically warmed up, and that won't happen on a Minnesota winter day. If it stalled short before the choke warmed up, it was time to force open the choke to clear out the excess fuel. My Camry starts before I can stop pushing the START/STOP button, thanks to fuel injection.

  • Although it's been rather a lot modified from how it rolled out of the factory, you can still call this car period correct. This is very much how a drag-spec 'Cuda would have been in the early '70s. Unfortunately, that means pretty much lethal anywhere other than on a drag strip... Utter insanity, and it is a very good illustration of why the muscle car era had to end. Although these cars are fondly remembered in the warm afterglow of history, in reality they were more lethal than having bareback sex with a Penn Station rent boy...
