The triple red 1970 Hemicuda conv. was owned at one time (around 1984) by Paul Suloff I believe. I took photos of it at a dealer show in Columbus, OH. The car was stunning. I wonder what Suloff sold it for??? (he did not own it for a very long time)

Dad said he bought for 3500, sold for 5500, then sold for around 17 I think dad said and then 75k. I'll ask him today who those people were.

CLUELESS as usual PacMan .....

You have NO IDEA what my net worth is... tsk

To answer my own question... I would imagine maybe the FMV now would be something like 1.5 based on what I’ve seen on the auction block in the last year or so.

BUT AGAIN... you numbers guyz would know bestER.... and what I said before was not a diss.

Having seen a fair amount of expensive/valuable cars that were essentially shelf models, I wonder how many HemiCudas actually run & drive properly ?
Hopefully all of 'em, but I'd bet some mostly sit like wheeled bank accounts.

I remember reading that magazine test article when the car was new..
And yes the test driver did mention there was a small puddle of trans fluid under the car at the time he picked it up.
Likely unrelated to the leak, but the car came off the assembly line and was delivered without the automatic hemi transmission cooler having been installed.
I believe it is still that way today

Currently with the trend for hemi convertibles and specialty models in 1968-1971 category, for 2021 estimates, I would say about 15% increase in it's original 2018 price.

I believe that car was a Goodyear display car here during the Street Machine Nationals in 83-84. Had a sign saying they bought the rarest of rare car muscle car.

How can a convertible be “triple red”? Are we counting the boot cover?

Hope I'm not hi jacking the 3.5 MM thread, but to respond on the red on red cuda. I owned it for a couple years in the early 80s. Mopar Action did an article on it several years ago which featured the lineage of owners. Called it the $5MM Cuda. I bought it from Andy Boltz who got it from Herb. Andy told me Herb found it in a trailer park. I had several E Body Hemi cars but always wanted a Hemi Vert. Car was apart and I resorted it. Body was amazing, maybe two small spots behind tires, floors perfect. Body work was easy. Back then You had to find parts at swap meets and bone yards. Year One was the only place that had Mopar parts back then, ie seat covers, emblems, decals. Replaced carpet and one seat cover. Arlen Vanke did the engine, Jim Pace fixed the trans and stopped leaks. First show was Street Machine Nats in Indy. I worked for Goodyear so put it in there booth. Hot Rod shot if for the magazine there and it made top ten list in the year end Magazine.

For some reason I wanted a Hemi more rare than 1 of 14. I found a Challenger 4 spd plum crazy car and purchased that in mid 80s, it was 1 or 9. Sold the Cuda to Wayne Hardy for $35K. Then eventually sold Challenger to Bill Drake in up state NY.

Had fun with them, but I didn't have big collections and was always looking for the next challenge. Any car I had that I sold for more than I paid was a good deal, but if there was ever one I wish I kept it was the red on red car. Shoulda Coulda Woulda

The convertible top color? Though that cars top is black.
I have a Franklin mint model of that car, it probably gets driven about as much as the real car now!
Isn’t it in the Brothers collection?
