Yeah but 2.5 mil is a bit too much in the eyes of some. That's about like people paying $1500 for an Iphone on launch day, IE ridiculous.

But still, do you guys think ANY car is worth that much? I just don't get it.

It's a fully loaded, documented all original with >3k miles 426 HEMI. I would expect it to fetch a pretty penny. 2.5 mil? I think someone will pay for it.

Each to their own, I wouldn't pay that much for a 70's car.

Do you sense me?

Do you fear me?

For all the youngsters here. That car was rated for 425hp. It probably put out about 450 or more. That was 40 years ago.

Worth is subjective. It's worth what someone will pay for it.

Cuda's are one of my favorite muscle cars. I owned a 69 cuda but never got to fully restore it. Thing was bad Ass!!!

2.5 million is crazy, but someone will pay it. Must be nice to have that kind of money to throw down on something that you'll probably just stare at and show off.

Sick car sick car sick car sick car.

I'll tell you this. If I was wealthy enough to justify 2.5 million on it, I'd break all the collectors hearts. Those polyglass gt's would make bubbling noises when the car stopped.

The Devil made me do it the first time. The second time I did it on my own.
