Unrestored 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda Up For Auction

 

If you've got a spare $600,000 kicking around, you might want to check out this unrestored 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda which is going up for auction this week. With only 81 original miles on the odometer, this is the lowest-mileage 1970 Hemi Cuda in existence and is expected to fetch between $600,000-$800,000 at Mecum Auctions in Indianapolis.

Originally purchased in June 1970 in West Virginia by Bill Reardon, the car was modified for the drag strip and the original parts stored. Unfortunately Bill passed away the next year and his car was sold - with all the original parts - by his son in 1977 to Marvin Dillon who restored it to factory condition.
