It’s weird to think that some of today’s most competitive race cars may someday be abandoned and left to rot in storage or a barn. It’s happened over and over again, even to some of the most celebrated race examples, case in point: Chrysler France’s region-dominating HEMI ‘Cuda.

With French Factory team driver, Henri Chemin at the helm, this 1970 ‘Cuda would win at least 45 races in its three years of competition, with a well-documented history of known track wins all over the region. Equipped with a myriad of high-performance upgrades, this factory racer was discovered in a barn in the early 2000s, and after being confirmed and authenticated, was shipped to the US a decade or so later where it received a Concours-level restoration. Since then, this specimen has won the Chief Judge’s Award at the 2013 Greenwich Concours d’Elegance and 2014 The Elegance at Hershey, before being the focus of a Telly Award-winning documentary released the following year. Eligible for various vintage race series, this muscle car’s dash is signed by Henri Chemin, too. This 1970 Chrysler Plymouth Hemicuda Group 1 Racer is currently for sale through Redline Automotive Restorations in Connecticut where its price is available upon request.
