Discussion in '1970 Plymouth HEMI 'Cuda' started by badbaz, Aug 10, 2002.

  1. if it had matching numbers. under 10,000 miles. never seen snow. never been in a wreck. it would be 125,000 dollars.

    Not after a full frame off restoration. You could sell it for 125,000.
    Most that I have seen for sale though are priced between 65,000 and 80,000.

    'Cudas are unibody cars, so you can't do frame-offs. As far as seals (which is a moot point when compared to rust), you wouldn't EVER drive the car if it was worth 125 grand (as a trailer queen rule of thumb)

    Thats your opinion. If u ask me, cars are meant to be driven. especially ones like this. Would u buy a house for a million dollars and not live in it because you dont want to get it dirty? I can understand your point, but i feel differently.

    hahahaha i cant agree with you anymore

    thats a really good point

    you buy a car to drive it and enjoy it, not to stick it in your garage and talk about it 24/7

    Guess my uncle got a steal on his 70 Cuda 426 last summer, 45,000 USD all numbers matching, 3rd owner car.

    not very good shape (needs a cosmetic resoration is what I mean) but its a high option car, AND it has a 4 speed (wtf were they thinking, only like 10% of 70's had 4 speeds, rest had autos). Fully restored it would fetch as much as any other cuda out there.

    and let me tell you, its a fuc.king BLAST to drive. Pistol grip shifters rule, what a great car.<!-- Signature -->
     
  10. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    If everything was in tact, yes i could see it going for hat or more. I have seen hemis go for over 250000. ridiculously expensive, but hey, it a hemi. its worth it
     
  11. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    Not driving it would be just as bad as driving it too much. You need to give it a hard drive every once in a while to keep it running good because if a car just sits in a garage all it's life it becomes lame, just like a good race horse. Probably doesn't really make much sense but something mechanical needs to run hard occasionally.
     
  12. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    When you realize how much you'd devalue the car to drive it - you'd do like everybody else and build up a cheaper one. You can put a HEMI in any 318 Barracuda, but you can't replace a wrecked 125,000 original HEMI car.
     
  13. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    Drive it very, very selectively. Like in one Club cruise per year.

    If you can't hold off like that, get a barracuda or challenger and drop a crate Hemi 426, 476, or 528ci in. It will be cheaper, louder, and an absolute experience to drive, plus you wont feel bad driving it hard. <!-- Signature -->
     
  14. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    hey, if i found an original hemi cuda w/ matching numbers, low miles, and in great condition, i'd pay whatever the person was asking, but that's just me.

    nothin' touches a 426 hemi powered mopar.
     
  19. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    Not all cars are meant to be driven, what if you wanted to preserve an under 1000 mile car in your garage so one day it would be worth a fortune? In the old days if I bought a Cuda when they were new and I knew they would be worth that much now I would keep it in a garage.
     
  20. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    Yeah, jus not so much that you kill them!
     
  21. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    I sure wouldn't pay 125,000 for one of these, no matter the condition. Don't get me wrong, it is my favorite car, ever, but I'm cheap. Like people have been saying, buy the crate 426, drop it in any cuda. biggity bam. That's good enough for me! And if I did have one, I wouldn't drive it, I'd sell it. (use the 125K to make what I just mentioned, plus 4 other great cars) If I did have to own it though, I'd drive it. I wouldn't want to own one to look at. That's not my bag.
     
  22. Re: is a good value for a hemi cuda 125000 dollars... yes

    This is such a dilemma...

    The thing is, if I bought a Hemi Cuda back then, it would have been driven a lot since.

    If I bought a 'Cuda now, I'd probably buy one with a 340 or so in it, and buy a crate 426 so I could drive it now.

    If someone (let's say a dead relative) gave me a matching #s Hemi Cuda with low mileage and all, then I wouldn't drive it. I know cars are meant to be driven, but such a rare thing is worth much more than a fun ride. I'd save money to make me a hemi cuda (forementionned) and keep the original one in a garage.
