It’s capable of making grown men cry. Described as the most valuable muscle car of all time in the sales description, this completely untouched 1971 Hemicuda is, for lack of a better word that I can’t think of at the moment, perfect.
Like absolutely perfect. There’s only one problem I have with it, the price. This isn’t a typo, but the “bottom line as-is” price is $1,900,000.
How is that a justifiable amount? Here are 13 reasons why, according to the seller, RK Motors of Charlotte, North Carolina.
- Original, untouched 3-speed transmission.
- Original Chrysler dual exhaust.
- Original black vinyl interior loaded with rare optional equipment.
- Fully documented from its factory punch card to its recent Mopar Action feature article.
- Three tag car that’s the highest optioned Hemi ‘Cuda known to exist.
- Original, untouched Dana 60 rear end.
- Original Rallye wheels which wear original Goodyear Polyglass tires.
- Original optional stereo that’s complete with a microphone jack and recorder.
- It’s the world’s ultimate reference-grade Hemi ‘Cuda.
- Virtually untouched 426 cubic inch Hemi V8 that’s so original it’s still complete with factory fluids.
- Original and untouched heavy duty Hemi suspension.
- Original body that’s still covered in original Rallye Red paint, original billboards and an original black vinyl top.
- Ordered new by the RJ Reynolds Tobacco heir.
