One of the most expensive muscle cars in the world is for sale
1971 Hemi Cuda Covertible for sale
The muscle cars from the turn of the 60’s and 70’s are still among the more affordable classics. Most models, even ones in pretty good condition can be bought for a few thousands of dollars. There are a few exceptions, though. The ’71 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible was, unlike its predecessors, a limited series. The model pictured is one of only two four-speed models in the U.S., and is the only one still featuring its original engine and drivetrain.
Twelve years ago this ’71 model became the first American muscle car to be sold for more than $1 million, but the one up for sale at the Mecum auction house is expected to go for four times as much in July. The question is why any collector would want to spend that much on a car when earlier models thereof cost around $400,000.
