Up for auction is my 1970 Plymouth Hemi GTX. No expense has been spared in this ground up restoration. Almost everything on the car is either new or been restored. I will try to list as much as I can: The GTX was originally a factory Burnt orange 440 car and I do not have the original engine. A new factory 426 Hemi crate engine from Mopar Performance was installed about 3 years ago and runs strong. It has two Edelbrock 600 carbs with aluminum intake and linkage package from Mancini Racing. All pulleys, brackets, lines, belts, and hoses are new. New Hemi air cleaner with decal, new exhaust manifolds with Flowmaster 40's run out back with chrome tips, new Champion aluminum radiator keeps it cool. Automatic on factory column, 8 3/4 rearend has 489 housing with 3.23 gears and new Auburn positive unit helps it cruise down highway and ride smoothly. It has a Hemi K-frame, factory heavy-duty suspension and large drum brakes all around. New master cylinder, gas tank, chrome bumpers, grille, emblems, side markers, taillights, bezels, and front and rear turn signal lights. The body has a new black vinyl top and the trim is new or replaced. Many GTX pieces are hard to find and expensive. Interior has been put back original burnt orange with new Legendary seat covers, door panels, carpet, headliner, armrest, trunk mat, new gauge faces and new Tic-Toc-Tac all from Yearone. The fender tag is missing, however, the vin matches the radiator support and trunk lip. This is a true GTX, not a cloned Satellite. The paint has a few small nicks or scratch, but overall nice and shows well. Wipers do not work. Wheels are Foose Legend 18s with Nitto tires. There's no warranty expressed or implied. This car gets attention wherever it goes, gets many thumbs up and sounds great! I would not classify it as a show car, but has won many awards at local shows. Now you can experience being swarmed by people looking at the ONLY Hemi car at your local show or cruise-in! Good luck bidding!

We're plenty used to seeing classic cars selling for millions of dollars. It's just that they're usually European: Ferraris, Bugattis, Mercedes and the like. There are some rare American exceptions, usually wearing the names Duesenberg or Shelby. But what we have here is the most expensive Chrysler product ever sold at auction.
The vehicle in question is a Plymouth Barracuda - specifically a 1971 Hemi Cuda Convertible, chassis #BS27R1B315367 - that Mecum Auctions just sold after eight solid minutes of feverish bidding for a high bid of $3.5 million at its auction in Seattle, Washington. That figure positively eclipses the $2.2 million paid for a strikingly similar Hemi Cuda (chassis #BS27R1B269588) fetched nearly seven years ago in Scottsdale and another that was the first muscle car to break the million-dollar mark in 2002.
The Plymouth Superbird is one of those classic American cars from the muscle car era that has captured the imagination of all sorts of automotive enthusiasts long after its presence on roads and race tracks wore away. It's easy to see why. Where else but in the Swingin' Sixties and Seventies would a car leave the factory with an aerodynamics package that included a pointy beak and a rear spoiler that sat several feet above the rear deck?

The example you see above, which was born in 1970, is one of the finest Superbirds we've ever seen. Combine its complete restoration with its original 426 Hemi engine, and it's no surprise that it managed to bring in a cool half million dollars (plus 10 percent in fees) at Barrett-Jackson. See it yourself in our high-res image gallery above, and scroll down below for the official auction description.

The US Marshal's so-called Blood Muscle Auction was completed earlier this month, with the prestigious nine-car field (two cars were added following Autoblog's initial story, a 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 and a rare, mid-restoration 1971 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda) finding new and hopefully law-abiding owners.
While we'd normally recap the stars of the show, in this particular auction, every car's sale was newsworthy. The full list of sale prices doesn't seem to be published, but according to The New York Times, the auction brought in a total of $2.5 million, or an average of about $277,000 per car.
The king of the contest seems to be a 1970 Plymouth Superbird (above, right), complete with a 426-cubic-inch Hemi V8, which brought home $575,000. The trio of Yenko Chevys, meanwhile, all easily cleared the six-figure mark, with the Yenko Camaro (above, far right) clearing $315,000, the Chevelle crossing the block for $237,500 and the supremely rare - one of just 37 - Yenko Nova (shown above, left) selling for an even $400,000.
