At least it looks to be reasonably well done .

With the vhttps://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/cto/d/cave-creek-1971-plymouth-hemi-cuda/7435362536.htmlalue of the real ones, in the stratosphere and out of reach for anyone but the elite .
I wonder just what is a decent price point for a clone in todays market ????
I think if I were in a position and and the car was nice in person , I would consider this one

And Im not an E body or even a 4 spd fan. But I have to say ,,I like this one. My wife would go gaga for it

Although .
IF , I were in the market. Wife and I both would actually prefer this one. Im a huge fan of B5 blue . Plus it has A/C
I would convert it to an auto. with some nice hiway gears make a pretty cool driver

All I see on that link is an invitation to join, so I can't comment on that specific car.
Seems to me that HemiCuda clones range 80-150K depending on quality, accuracy, desirability (colors, 4-speed), and the buyer pool that week/month/auction.
I tend to think of clone valuations as the 1st 3 of the above, and factoring in the cost/value of the parts.
What real ones are going for is also a factor, but not a direct guide, as I don't see, say, $300K for even the best clone in the world. At least not yet !
Would I own one ? Probably, but it's not likely I'll ever have that much $$$ laying around.

Of those 2, I'd say the purple one is more accurate, the blue one cleaner.
Fair amount of surface rust on some things on the purple car.
Kinda depends on color preference & usage, and whether one prefers 70 or 71, right ?
Quality of workmanship - especially body & paint - is probably most important, of course.
Interesting they're the same 125K; gut feeling is they're ahead of the curve on that, but next year that could be about right at the rate things are going.

Did the purple one start life as a 6 cylinder car? I may know who built it and it was a really nice job of doing it nicely. up

The purple one has been for sale for a while. Maybe 6-9 mos.? Not sure but it seems like it used to be cheaper, (like $90 or $95K). Not really a Hemi fan so to me I'd prefer a 440-6 car or even a 340 convert.
Of the two discussed here, I'd prefer the 71. Seems like $90 or so is where it should be. Just my .02

Hard to read the data tag , could be either BH27GOB ( 318 car ) or maybe BH27COB ( 225 slant six car )

At 125 I think you should get a Dana as standard. The purple car speaks to me and I’m a 71 fan. My 71 was probably my second favorite car I had.

Not sure in the pricing. Haven’t looked at hemis lately. I used to base things on cost of the chassis bought and the cost of a hemi, plus a tad more for installation hassles like brackets etc.


I want my fair share

Not me, Id rather have the ac the 71 has instead.

Just the 70 is a little more correct so to speak ,,,,,if that even matters with a clone ????

125 is the new 90 laugh2
Tonight a 70 Cuda non-Hemi (no Shaker, saw the car for maybe 2 seconds) sold at B-J for $170K. With fees, that's $187K I think.
Alcohol may have been involved, but still...

Then again, money was flying for a lot of stuff; now I know where my lottery investment went laugh2
