The car was powered by a potent Ram Air, 428 cubic-inch engine that produced enough power and torque to earn the Cougar XR7 the respect it deserved. Only a handful of them was ever produced.
1971 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda
The total number of Hemi Barracuda convertibles produced in 1970 and 1971 adds up to 21 units. That is still quite a small number for a car that was mass-produced as a coupe. The convertible Hemi Cuda is one of the highly-priced convertible muscle cars sold at auction – commanding a hefty price of 3.5M.
Apart from being a rare vehicle, it is the only original Plymouth Hemi Cuda left with the Hurst shifter. Even the less-premium models of this car are extremely expensive. Back in the day, the Hemi upgrade cost up to $1200
1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am
One of the best, and rarest muscle cars from the golden age, the 1969 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am. It is not just rare today, even at the time of its production, the Trans Am was already a rare gem as only 8 units were produced. All three were RA III models, meaning they were all fitted with the Ram Air III V8 engine.
The Ram Air III V8 was the second powerful engine with 400 cubic inches and 335 horsepower. Ram Air IV V8was the strongest engine at that time. Four of the Firebird Trans Am were automatic while the other half were fitted with a manual transmission.
