There’s no denying that the muscle cars of the late 60s and early 70s are some of the most desirable vehicles in automotive history; however, it’s not often that they fetch mind-boggling seven-figure price tags. On the off chance that they do, it usually comes down to a feature on the silver screen or some prestigious ownership history — less so because of the car itself.
But with this 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible — estimated at $5,750,000 – $6,500,000 — that’s not at all the case. Instead, its worth comes from exclusivity, with it being 1 of 12 produced for the model year, 1 of 3 equipped with a factory 4-speed manual transmission, as well as the only 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible to wear ‘Winchester Gray’ paint. What’s more, it started life as an export, originally shipped to France before it eventually returned to the United States in 1993. As such, it features a metric odometer with 98,553km (61,237mi) on the clock. And when you consider that it comes with period-correct details like a matching-numbers 425hp V8, some original Cuda trim, and a signature pistol grip shifter, the resulting car is nothing short of a unicorn.
