A 71 Cuda hemi 4 sp conv blue paint blue interior black top sold for the astounding price of $3.5 million at a Mecum auction in Seattle this weekend on NBCSP.
Don't know how many were bidding on it but without a doubt, someone wanted it really bad.
Someone spent $3.5 million but dozens of cars did not meet reserve price and not sold.

Very nice cars, but $3.5 MILION? That's messed up!

The same guy that sold the Cuda also had a Vette for sale. Bidding got up to $3.7 million but the owner would not release the reserve.

Yeah but the 71 'Cuda convertible with the 426 hemi and the pistol grip 4-speed manual transmission makes it one of the rarest muscle cars to be built were only 11 were made and well they do not come up for sale often so chances are the people that want one know the huge cost to be one of the very small group of current and former owners of one of the 11 cars and are willing to pay the $3.5 Million

Yeah, I was watching it on TV that day and the owner who sold it didn't look to happy after it had sold for that much. He almost looked like he wanted to cry.

Its a shame because the buyer will just put it in a warehouse to stare at. If I was rich and had 3.5mil to blow on a car like that I'd drive the hell out of it. I'd make it my daily driver just to get a kick out of it and **** snobby enthusiasts off!

And there's people out there hungry is what I think. Not enough of a Mopar fan to spend that.

I totally agree with the last 3 posts.........

I love cars but 3.5mm for a single, 43 year old car that you would be afraid to drive......nah I'll pass!

I could stretch 1mm for a 10-12 car collection. Bank the 2.5, give the interest to charities to feed the homeless, do good etc.....heck 2.5 at even 5% is 125K a year....$2400 a week/ $343 a day.....that buys a lot of hot dogs, beans and rice!
