The fans of classic American muscle cars will be glad to know a very special item is going up for grabs at the Monterey Car Week, but they will never guess how much it is going to cost. The car in question is a 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible, and the price (estimated) $2.5 to $3 million!

There are a couple of things that make this Cuda Convertible so special and therefore so pricey. It s one of just 14 Hemi Cuda Convertibles produced in 1970, and one of only 9 equipped with an automatic transmission. What’s more, the handsome muscle car is powered by a 426 Hemi V-8 engine.

Other important factors enabling the auctioneers to justify that mahoosive price tag include the fact that this Hemi Cuda Convertible was the personal car of the designer of the Cuda, John Herlitz, and that it has received a comprehensive restoration in 2002 by Cummins Restorations. It’s a showpiece, this car, which is a pity, because that means it spends all its time just sitting around in various collections and car shows and never gets driven the way its creators intended.

The 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Convertible will be offered for sale by Mecum Auctions along with many vintage Ferraris, Porsches, Corvettes and other classics. Bidding on this car requires online registration and costs $100 per person.
