Collector car prices have skyrocketed in recent years, but few have gained residual value like select Mopar muscle. At Mecum’s Kissimmee auction in January, Mopar vehicles accounted for eight of the ten most valuable sales, with the most expensive being a $2.6 million Hemi Cuda convertible.
Another beautiful example of Mopar muscle will go under the gavel at Mecum’s upcoming Portland auction, however it probably won’t command the seven-figure sums the rare cars in Kissimmee did. That’s not to take away from this numbers matching 1970 Plymouth Barracuda 440 Six Pack, though.
The left the Los Angeles, California assembly line extremely well-equipped with the desirable ‘Shaker’ hood, 2-barrell ‘Six Pack’ 440 engine and Dana 60 rear end. It also boasts Rallye wheels, hood pins, power steering, front disc brakes, a six-way power driver’s seat, a rallye instrument cluster and a 3-spoke steering wheel.
Mecum says the ‘Cuda’s restoration is of “show quality,” but it’s not clear when the vehicle underwent said overhaul. Click here for additional photos before the car finds a brand new home on June 18th.
