Restored Barn-find Hemi 'Cuda

There is a restored, barn-find 1970 plum crazy Hemi 'Cuda on sale at E-Bay for $249,900.

Here is the story:

"Originally bought by a muscle car enthusiast in rural Wisconsin, the owner was forced to sell the ‘Cuda and buy a house when his partner announced she was pregnant.
The Plymouth was sold locally to a farmer where it remained for the better part of three decades. As the years ticked on, the original owner kept in touch with the new custodian and soon tried to buy the car back.Despite almost 20 years of haggling, the farmer refused to sell. By now, the car was no longer running. Effectively transformed into a barn find, a sale was finally reached and the ‘Cuda landed back with its first owner a couple of years ago. The Plymouth was then restored by its original titleholder and his now much older son prior to the current sale.Authenticated by Mopar expert Galen Govier, this car is fully documented with restoration receipts, original newspaper clippings from 1970 when the car was originally purchased and newspaper articles from when the car finally returned to its original owner."

Question: For your Christmas present, which would you choose- this car or a Hellcat Redeye and $180,000 cash?

Personally - after waiting 30 years to re-acquire a car, and restore it...I wouldn't turn around a sell it.

I guess the $$$ was the motivating factor.

Its a nicely optioned out '70 in a great color combo. I would have kept it and enjoyed it.

There aren't a lot of '70 Hemi Cudas around to begin with, much less being able to get back a car you used to own.

I'd bet that @Cuda340 could get his '71 'Cuda back, he'd be on that in a heartbeat
