A rare 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda is currently up for sale courtesy of RK Motors for $1.99 million. Regarded as one of the most sought after and expensive muscle cars ever, a convertible version sold for a record $3.5 million a few months ago.
The following example was originally ordered for the collection of the late Zachary Taylor Reynolds. It is one of the highest options Hemi Cuda’s ever and is fully documented. It is finished in Rallye Red and rolled out of the factory on February 16, 1971. Built to USA specifications, it features a black vinyl top, and is powered by a 425 hp, 426 cubic inch V8 engine with two 4-barrel carburettors. This powertrain is then mated to a TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission.
In the description of the car, it is revealed that “at the front of the car an original torsion bar suspension, which is complete with a thick sway bar, specially tuned shocks and original control arms that still display a thin layer of factory Cosmoline, helps increase both drivability and track times.”
