Rare Cuda Convertibles Expected to Bring-in Millions at Auction
Published December 31, 2015
The Cuda was one of the largest contributors to the Muscle Car Era and the Cuda Convertible was manufactured in very limited quanities. In January at the Mecum’s auction in Kissimmee, Florida they will present 31 Hemi Cudas for sale by auction. All of them will get the bidders attention; but two of the Cudas up for bids are expected to hit the seven digit mark and then some.
The biggest bread winner is anticipated to be this completely original 1970 Hemi Cuda Convertible with an amazingly low 27,500 miles on the odometer. This car is one of the only five 1970 426 Hemi Convertibles that came off the assembly line and is expected to sell for approximately three million dollars. This Cuda showcases the infamous shaker scoop design, a power convertible top, and a Rallye trim package. The bright yellow exterior is complimented by a black interior and a matching black top. This Cuda is all original right down to the hub caps.
The second feature car is a white 1971 Cuda Convertible with only 30,900 miles registered on the odometer. This Hemi is equipped with a Torqueflite automatic transmission verses the four speed manual that was incorporated in most Muscle Cars from that era. This Hemi Cuda also showcases a shaker scoop, black interior, and black power top. Again; it also appears to be all original right down to the hub caps. Another price tag hiker is the fact that it is a 71 model that was the final year of production for the Cuda. This automobile is anticipated to bring-in approximately two and a half million dollars.
Both of these Cudas are very impressive and are so clean that you could eat your lunch off of the shaker scoops. Both Cudas will probably escalate into immediate bidding wars when they roll across the stage. The outcome should be very interesting to see to say the least.
