Uh-oh - I have a poser - someone violating my copyright! I am the ORIGINAL Sunroofcuda! Yes, mine is also V-21 & has the factory sunroof. The original grille in mine is the Sun Gleam Silver & has the red areas by the chrome trim. My car is the Gold Leaf metallic, white roof, white interior, white stripes. I am the second owner & have build sheets & the 2-page window sticker.

Ahhh I didn't catch the difference in the member name I'd still like to document the car he described, I have the gold car info you provided. going through my files....the Cyber Cuda lives on and is for sale yet again. Blaine Kelly's old car, also owned by Bob Malcom..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDsOcPj8Fvk it is not coded for the G36 mirrors (hence no color keyed grille), but they have been on this car a long time

Does anyone know the poster of this video youtube user Daniel Berube of Québec? It appears the video is from when the car was for sale in Sept of 2014.

Hi. I really enjoyed your post. I wish it had been started earlier. Now I will need to repaint the centers of my grill. Are you keeping track of V21 cars? I have one that I would like to add to the list. I am pretty sure mine came with a driver side only chrome side mirror. I have owned mine for about 26 years and I will drive for the first time soon. I will post pictures soon.
Jeff

EDIT Jeff PM sent. callme

On ebay now, ad states original paint. It's not a G36 car, as shown by the fender tag. The passenger door doesnt show evidence of a racing mirror.... interesting

FWIW: I just found this forum and pics of my former car.

I purchased the car that has been mentioned in this thread from Jim Stewart of Milton, Pennsylvania in 1999. Jim had finished restoring the 'cyber cuda' shortly before I purchased it. He had also procured a parts car to help with the restoration. A set of doors with window glass and a bunch of parts were included in the sale to me. I ultimately gave those to a buddy who was fixing up a Barracuda GC.I have a pair of pictures somewhere that Jim gave me showing the grill, hood and driver's side prior to restoration. The original paint was rough at that point. Grill on the car was argent ... color-keyed grill was an option for my color Rallye Red, but I didn't think all got that treatment = correct?

This was my dream car and I thought I'd keep it forever, but ultimately only kept it for 2 years because of family reasons. (Yes, I wish I still had it now). I did take it to the Mopar Nats in 2000 and that little yellow decal was still on the front windshield last time I saw the car in the Southern Motors video. I sold it to Bob Malcom, the former long-time dealer in Peebles, OH in 2001. They kept it for more than a decade and it was even mentioned in the 'Plum Crazy' video by Throttle TV when they visited the Malcom's collection. I am aware of it being sold 2 times since then, including from Southern Motors in 2015 (shown in a video earlier in this thread). No idea since then.

The car ran well, but #7 plug would often foul if you were not patient about initial warm up or once warm, to restart and let idle for a few moments before driving. I always kept extra spark plugs and a long socket set in the trunk. I assumed the Jet-Hot coated header that bent up to to allow room for the steering rack was just too close and too hot.

Just wanted to add a few notes on my past car since it was mentioned. I no longer have the website showing the V21 specs, but was glad to see it was posted here. Hopefully that can help someone in the future.

Gotta say, as cool as a '70 or '71 'cuda would be to have with a big block, I thought the '72 with the V21 hood paint and the scalloped '72 side stripes were my favorite design combo on the e-body cars.

I guess the 73 had the color key grille as an option
