As one of the most sought after cars in the 1970s, the Hemi Cuda had a legacy to maintain the time – which it did rather gracefully, being successfully raced by Chrysler France, till 1973. Chrysler made only 652 of these beauties and only 14 convertibles, making originals a rather rare sight.


Production 1964 – 1974
Type Gas Engine
Engine 426 Chrysler Street Hemi, hemispherical OHV V-8
Torque 490 lb-ft @ 4,000 rpm
Transmission A-833 four-speed manual or three-speed auto
Horsepower 425 hp @ 5,000 rpm
0-60 mph 5.8 sec
Quarter Mile 14 sec
Top Speed 117 mph


You might think that this 70-90’s sports car isn’t that fast with the 5.8 second time of 0-60 mph, but this is an astounding figure for the time. It could easily qualify as the fastest stock muscle car up till the 90s.
