Be prepared to fork over a lot.
We’re only a couple of weeks away from this year’s Monterey Car Week. You know, the show at Pebble Beach where there’s a certain auction with cars attracting tens of millions of dollars? Yeah, that one. But it’s not only vintage exotics and other supercars old and new that attract some of the wealthiest collectors out there. Take this 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible for example. It’s one of just 14 produced, and one of only nine equipped with an automatic transmission.
Powered by that legendary 426 Hemi V8, it was styled by John Herlitz, who was only 27 at the time. Because Chrysler was so pleased with his finished product, Herlitz was rewarded with one. This one, actually. Mecum Auctions is offering the car and it’s estimated to bring in $2.5 million - $3 million. But hey, legendary all-American (and rare) muscle is worth every penny.
