It sure is Harry.
I've read about that car several times, and it's been fully documented by Galen Govier.
For me, That is the ULTIMATE factory muscle car.

Thing is that it is a collectors car and was never a great driver. They didn't make a lot of hemi convertables because of frame flex. The guys who wanted true performance hemi's went for the coupe because the chassis was much stiffer and didn't flex as much under power. Yea, it is a collectors car but it is a long way from being the"best" 'cuda IMOH.

Of the 11 1971 Hemi Cuda converts. I don't think any of them are built exactly the same. That makes all of them one of one's.

Well, I entered Publisher's Clearing House's sweeps...

Not exactly what I had in mind, but interesting enough that I would be willing to entertain it.

That thing is only worth a couple pennies in my book haven't ever seen why they think those dang cars are good looking. Never have liked Mopar's styling

I read an article on one of these cars years back. The owner was offered over a $million and turned it down!

I would not surprise me if this thing didn't set a price record at like 1.8 or 2 mil.

And yes, Grape is one of my favorite colors. It's what makes Frau Blucher and EYEGORE think I'm a wino! LOL.

I'll be surpised if the car breaks 7 figures.
This car has a storied history that ( IMO ) will prevent it from bringing any kind of record price. In the Mopar world it's refered to as the 'wheelbarrow ' car

An amusing read about this car.
