Convertibles are not the types of cars you will see on the road every day. And the same applies to classic muscle cars. Apart from being a wild selection of rare automobiles, the good old classic muscle cars were extremely powerful and cool. These are classic cars that the millennials might never even get a chance to see, let alone drive.
Some of these classic convertible muscle cars are still ruling the streets, but their prices are extremely high as they have become the collectibles. Here are the 8 coolest and rarest convertible, muscle cars ever.
1967 Dodge Coronet R/T Hemi 426
The Dodge Coronet Road and Track Hemi 426 was produced for four years, up to 1970. It is one of the mass-produced cars of the 1970s with over 3000 units released. Most of these were coupes, only two of them were convertibles.
The car featured the newly introduced 7.0L Hemi V8 engine that produced enough power and torque to command the respect it deserved. With only two convertibles produced in 1967 and two in 1970, the Coronet R/T Hemi 426 is one of the rarest muscle car convertibles you can buy today. That is if you are ready to cough out $300,000.
1970 Mercury Cougar XR7
The Mercury Cougar XR7 is one of the rarest and most powerful classic convertible muscle cars. And it was not just powerful; the Cougar XR7 was the type of car that you could not describe, whether it is a muscle car or luxury convertible. These two, comfort and muscle, perfectly combined, resulted in one of the most wanted classic cars of all time.
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.
