This cuda is on ebay. In the opening line of the description it is worded "Up for sale is a factory original, numbers matching". Check out the next few pictures and see what you think. It's definitely always worth it to have someone you trust to do an inspection.

Oops ! But I didn't see those photos in the listing...
Check out his username, for a hint at what could be in store for a buyer laugh2
Then again, it has "Posi Grip" and louvers for the convertible top back window...
Bid history is interesting, not to mention the amount...

WoW, good catch. Yes, why not post pictures of all the numbers if its really numbers matching. So easy to do.

This car is 20 minutes from my house. I was interested in it initially but I've seen way better '71 verts for similar money. Either shill bidding or bullion in the bell housing.

After communicating with the seller I don't see things going through at that amount. The car needs floors front to back, both quarters and I'm sure more. That along with the missing original motor equals a much lesser value.

Sounds like phony bidding to go with the phony numbers match claim.
What’s a project like that worth? Maybe half what the claimed selling price is?

I would say half. At least thats what I would pay. I thought about buying this car as it’s close to me too. But lately these cars just seem to be going up and up. But the big boys want nothing to do with non numbered cars. Im currently restoring a 70 barracuda convertible.

I finally stopped saving up for another 71 Cuda convertible and bought an 08 Viper. A lot more car for less money. And Viper prices are just starting to go up.

For that price, you could buy 2 Hellcats and actually have a ton of fun, without that thing stuck in restoration for years.

If it really did sell, someone will be very unhappy to find out it’s not the original engine.

Flexible upper radiator hose is usually a clue that something isn’t matching up.

Driving wise sure.
As a collectible though, no Viper will ever bring $3,000,000.

That's not a 71 Cuda though, man.

Aside from the four-speed, barely had any options.

Unlike the BS27N1 'vert two-tag car (auto though) that I sold a few years ago for pennies on the dollar.
