The top earner was a 1971 Hemi ‘Cuda that hauled in $550,000. The True Blue Metallic car was said to be the highest known serial number Hemi ‘Cuda in existence (it was billed as the “last Hemi ‘Cuda”) and had 23,746 miles showing on the odometer.
The car has previously been a no sale at Mecum auctions, dating as far back as 2007, bidding up to $525,000 at Mecum’s Kissimmee auction in 2009; $370,000 at Mecum’s St. Charles Auction in 2009; $400,000 in Kissimmee in 2010; $375,000 at Monterey in 2010; and $380,000 in St. Charles in 2010. The car was also spotted in a dealer’s inventory prior to its sale last month, with an asking price of $599,000.
