Evaluation: Restored like new with excellent paint, chrome, stainless, gauges, and interior. Flat panels, even fits. Impossible to fault. Documented history from new. One of 14 built.
Bottom Line: Hemi ‘Cuda convertibles have their own exclusive niche. With abundant Hemi horsepower and torque in a whippy frame without the stabilization of a roof the driving experience may leave something to be desired, but they are consummately rare and legendary.
They have gone through value cycles when they’re in and out of fashion and having sold at Mecum Indy three years ago in 2019 for $1,980,000 the consignor here obviously was anticipating riding a cresting wave to get closer to the $2.4M low estimate. Considering how strong the prices were at Kissimmee this year it is somewhat surprising more money wasn’t present for this Hemi ‘Cuda convertible, but the wave may have passed.
Yes, it IS a hemi Cuda convertible but if If I were to spend that much money on one, I’d wait for one with more visual appeal. That color combo is about as undesirable as it gets.
