Description

Lot #1034 - This factory promotional 'Cuda is an extremely rare car, it was the very first V Code 'Cuda manufactured in 1971 and it is one of only six Promo 'Cudas that were built in 1971 as factory show cars to promote the new model year. All of the 1971 Promo 'Cudas were painted Hi-Impact Curious Yellow and all came with the same or similar extensive list of options from Plymouth in order to display the available options for the 1971 'Cuda. The list of options was so extensive, all of the Promo 'Cudas had two fender tags that designated the factory options and build specifications. This spectacular and highly desirable 'Cuda was researched and registered by Galen Govier. In Mr. Govier's certified report, he confirms in 1971 that there were only 237 V-code 'Cuda hardtops manufactured to U.S.A. specs and 30 built for Canada and further confirms that this 'Cuda was the very first V-code 'Cuda manufactured in 1971 and that it is the only V-code 'Cuda that was manufactured with the A28 noise reduction package, therefore making this 'Cuda a one of one car. Vance Cummins, owner of Cummins Restorations of Muskegon, Michigan, completed a museum quality nut and bolt rotisserie restoration on this 'Cuda in 2008. It started off as a rust-free California local show quality car with its factory original engine, rear-end, radiator and most other substantial parts. This stunning 'Cuda has no miles since its completion. All of the restoration receipts and photos are available to document the superb quality of this rotisserie restoration. Certified by Galen Govier as a one of one car, documented as the first V Code 'Cuda to be manufactured in 1971, with a highly desirable color combination and an extensive list of factory options, this Promo 'Cuda is truly a unique and rare piece of automotive history.
