1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda - $220k high bid

In the muscle car world, the Plymouth Hemi Cuda is the Holy Grail. It was the third generation of the Plymouth Barracuda and offered from 1970 to 1974. The Barracuda was discontinued after the 1974 model year.

The Cuda had the 383ci 335 as the standard engine. It also could be had with the 440ci four-barrel Super Commando, the 440ci six-barrel Super Commando Six Pak, and the top of the line 426ci Hemi.

The 440 and Hemi-equipped cars received upgraded suspension components and structural reinforcements. 1 of 284 produced. Period correct 426 CI engine rated 425hp . Highly desired factory 4-speed manual transmission. 11,836 miles since new.

This example resides near the very top of the collector food chain.
Peerless then, nearly priceless now, the 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda is a muscle car classic.

This example made a ludicrous high bid of $220k. Low estimate was $600k.
