Ahh, a bright yellow and white 1971 Plymouth ‘cuda convertible, powered by the legendary 426 Hemi V8.    Truly a fantasy machine for just about every red-blooded gear head, Plymouth fan or not.   Only 11 were built with the Hemi, and it’s important to note that just 374 1971 ‘cuda convertibles were produced in total, so they are pretty rare, no matter what’s under the hood. This combination of an angry Hemi in a summertime fun drop-top ‘cuda might seem like a mismatch, but that’s part of the mystique of these cars.    From The Brothers Collection.  
 

 

 

This popular 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T features a 426 Hemi, a 4-Speed, and a power convertible top.   Just like the other 4 built with these options!    It’s another super-rare example of a prime Muscle Car from The Brothers Collection.     
 
 
This 1968 Plymouth GTX convertible features a thumpin’ 426 Hemi for power, one of just 34 built!   It’s one of the most stylish and speedy rides in The Brothers Collection!
 
 
Is this the most sought-after Muscle Car ever made? Chrysler workers only put 11 of these Hemicuda convertibles together back in ‘71, and the breakdown of options and colors puts this as one of 2 US delivered cars that were built with the 426 Hemi V8 and 4-speed manual transmission.    From The Brothers Collection.
 
Yep, not everything goes as planned.

All added up, there were 12 440 six barrel Cuda convertibles built with an automatic transmission, and just 17 came with the heavy duty 4-speed manual gearbox like our example here.    It’s not quite as rare as the Hemi cars, but any time you have an extremely low production car that has awesome power, stunning good looks, and a folding top, you’ve got a winner.
