Road & Track recently put together a list of the top 10 coolest and rarest convertible muscle cars ever made and not surprisingly, included two of the rarest muscle cars of all time: the 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda convertible and 1970 Hemi Road Runner convertible
Plymouth offeredits famous 426 HEMI V8 in the Barracuda convertible for the 1971 model year, but only 11 customers took them up on the offer. Today, the rare Hemi Cuda convertible is worth a shocking sum. A Plum Crazy purple example (pictured) was sold by Barrett Jackson at its Scottsdale 2013 auction for $1.3 million, for example. Mecum also valued a 1972 model year Hemi Cuda at $3.5 million earlier this year.
Despite the fact that it’s much more rare, the Hemi Road Runner gets a lot less love than the Hemi Cuda. Just three customers wanted a 426 HEMI in their Road Runner convertible in 1970, including one in Canada. A 1970 Hemi Road Runner convertible won’t command six-figure sums like the Hemi Cuda, but if you ask us, it’s nearly as cool.
